I stayed at this hotel before and after touring Turkey and it proves to be well located to access most sites in Istanbul, being an easy five minute walk to the spice market or the Ayasofia. Staff were helpful. Did get a bit of street noise in some rooms rooms 8 and 9 on each floor probably quietest. Dining room... More

We stayed in centrum hotel as a part of our 10 days trip and we really liked the location and the staff. The hotel is only 5 mins walk away from the highlights of istanbul. Recommended to visitors looking for a budget hotel. Their breakfast was absolutely wonderful as well.

This is a simple, clean hotel, and a good price. Staff member were hospitable. The breakfast was excellent. It is served on the top floor with a great view. Bathroom and shower were quite small. I really liked location and the fact that it is a small hotel. I was there at beginning and end of my trip to Turkey... More

....but the room left a bit to be desired. I suppose in terms of the space available in the old town of Istanbul it wasn't bad, we didn't expect some massive room, but the first couple of nights we stayed there we were in some weird L shaped twin room that had the beds at right angles to each other...

A 5 day stay in the Centrum was a mixed experience. Rooms are fine, comfy beds and lovely bathrooms. Impeccably cleaned, nice aircon and good wifi. However walls are paper-thin and doors slam loudly day and night. Construction works in the building next door (concrete blocks being laid from early morning) as well as flashing lights on the hotel opposite... More

This was our base for our g adventures trip and we stayed here at the beginning and. End of the trip. It was in a great spot for exploring the aya Sofia, grand bazaar and good bars and restaurants. Clean rooms with air con. What more could you need?

The Centrum is within walking distance of many major attractions and is close to the tram too. Their breakfast is excellent with fresh fruit. There's a great view from the breakfast room too. The air conditioning came in handy.

We were very unimpressed. Very small dark room and very unhelpful disinterested reception staff. Very disappointing as most of the other Turkish people we've met couldn't have been more helpful. The breakfast room has a good view though.

This hotel is well located -- and lacking for most everything else. Not sure how it has 3 stars. Front desk staff not helpful. Getting directions is out of the question. (Take a cab was first response -- seriously! it was walking distance.) WiFi intermittent in lobby, definitely not in rooms. Room is small, smoke-smelling, poorly lit. Overall dreary feeling.... More

The location of this hotel is awesome as it is close to the Grand Bazaar, Blue Mosque, Cistern, Sophia and tram with many restaurants, shops, money exchanges, banks etc right outside. Unfortunately the location is quite noisy with the combination of loud noise from outside (restaurants, construction site), inadequate (no blockout) curtains, uncomfortable beds and pillows resulting in sleepless nights....
