I had 2 nights in the old city and decided to spend my last night here. Taxi driver had trouble finding it but location is great for a quiet,luxury hotel a few minutes walk from major tourist points. The room I had was huge with spectacular bathroom, bedroom area and lounge area. Everything was modern and new, and reception efficient.... More

Housekeeping need to improove, the bar is sleeping! (Why we need to waite for service when we are only guest?) and the joint hall area can be more alive. We would love to... More

Istanbul all in all was a great place. A city I can't wait to revisit. Having said that, the hotel's location (Taksim) as well as the comfort that was provided to us truly added to the experience. The staff became family within minutes of our arrival and went the extra mile throughout our stay, for the small things related to... More

We stayed in Central Palace Hotel, Taksim, Istanbul in April 2014. It was a really good experience. The room was nice, functional and very clean. We had breakfast on one day there and the variety in the breakfast buffet was very good. Overall the hotel is kept really clean and is comfortable. The wifi was very good too. We then... More

Great location, profesional and friendly front desk / concierge team. Housekeeping needs to be a little more detailed but is good. Breakfast service and choice is excellent. We enjoyed our 4 days stay and would stay at this hotel again in the future. Big thank you to all the staff at the central palace.

While it is illegal to smoke in hotels in Turkey, the Central Palace chooses to allow cigarette smoking. We were surprised to see ash trays and matches in our room and in the lobby. But when are clothes started to smell like smoke and we had a constant smell of cigarettes in our room, we asked to be moved. The... More

Dear Tom2815, It is not fair that you play judge and jury just depending on your conclusions which is not even close to the truth. That is totally wrong what you have written and you do not reflect the truth with your comments. I will try to point out the truth step by step. As I am doing this I... More

The Central Palace is close to Taksim square. It is situated in an area with cobble streets, lots of restaurants & hotels, a close-by metro stop and many stores. The hotel itself is clean and well run. The rooms are large (most have a very good sized sitting area with a couch and two chairs, plus a desk). The breakfast,... More

A lovely hotel close to Taksim Square, Gezi Park and Istiklal Cad. Our room was spacious and included a sitting room and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was also large with the only slight concern being a very high bath to step out of. Breakfast was great but dinner was disappointing with very ordinary-tasting food. Fortunately there are... More

It is a shame that this hotel is suffering from the ongoing unrest in nearby Taksim Square and Gezi Park which are in easy walking distance. The turmoil is very real and happens often, but it is very easy to stay clear. We had dinner outside right down the street several nights and never felt unsafe. You can definitely get... More
