The hotel is supposed to be non-smoking with big signs up at all floors printed in big red letters. However reality is rather different! We travelled in a group (11 rooms). Upon arrival, the room given to one member smelled strongly of cigarette smoke. As this person is allergic to smoke, he asked for a change of rooms which only... More

Centrum hotel is well located, close from Topkapi and most monuments in the old city of Istanbul. The streets around the hotel are not noisy. Congratulation to the staff at the reception that is friendly and helped us very efficiently to find good restaurants and to book shows. The weakness of the hotel are the rooms and the smell in...

Visited Centrum hotel in December 2014. Excellent location. Close to the tram line. Blue mosque, haga sofia and grand&spice bazaars within walking distance. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room is on the lower end of the 4* rating of this hotel. We stayed in two rooms (they didn't have a double room available for us as we had booked) rooms... More

Not elegant, but clean and the staff was pleasant. I loved the location and did not mind the restaurant noise. It was great to just go out of the hotel and immediately find restaurants. You can easily walk to the Blue Mosque or Grand Bazaar or down to the waterfront area. I would stay there again if I ever return... More

We stayed at the Hotel Centrum for 3 nights in July/August during our two week tour of Turkey. The hotel is in a very touristy part of the old city with lots of souvenir shops and restaurants nearby. The rooms are small, but clean, with effective air conditioning (important during the summer heat), and wi-if available. For our first two... More

Walking distance of many places. Mosquée bleue, Ste-Sophie, grand bazar and many restaurants. We feel very safe. Good restaurants at many prices. The rooms are very small but correct. The breakfast is good and served in a large room witn a beautiful view.

We liked about this hotel was good rooms with large enough beds which you rarely find in such hotels in Europe. Breakfast needs improvement but staff was OK. Cons were no exhaust fans in bathroom, drapes on windows were not large enough to cover whole window so light comes int he room and its never completely dark. Worst part is... More
