Hotel Centrum Istanbul
Ranked #394 of 1,160 Hotels in Istanbul
Reviewed 7 January 2014

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 are very small, very basic and the first set of beds were like sleeping on a concrete slab! Overall a clean and well maintained hotel. Breakfast on the rooftop has an amazing view. Not a very big selection of food and horrible coffee. Not really worth it.. You are better off saving that extra money and dining at one of the many coffeshops/resturants in the area.

We stayed at the Centrum for 3 nights. All staff from the domestic to reception staff were courteous and helpful. Loved the location in the old part of town. Close to the Grand Bazaar, Blue Mosque, Cistern, Sophia and tram. Plus a stones throw from the train station and the pier. Close to many restaurants, shops and banks etc
The local noise did not bother us at all.

Room Tip: Rooms that we used were a touch small but after all only required for sleeping as out everyday sight...

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 to Turkey. There is a lovely view from the breakfast room.

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 nights, we could not get Internet access from our room, but it was no problem moving to the lobby for that. On our last night, a new room had excellent wi-fi strength.

Hotel Centrum is a 10 minute walk from Topaki Place, the Aya Sofia and Blue Mosque. The other direction is about the same distance to the Spice Market, Galata Bridge and the Bosphorus ferries. Some other reviews complained rooms were noisy, but this wasn't an issue for us.

Breakfast on the rooftop terrace is included. A good choice of items and a beautiful view! Overall, a great budget choice.

I use trip advisor for all my travel research, so im finally using it to write a review. First off im in my early 30's and went with my Mom. We loved the Centrum Hotel. The staff was courteous, kind, helpful, and was always there to assist us with all our needs. The rooms were very clean, and comfortable. I would like to add that we also stayed at the beautiful Hilton hotel on this trip, but we both agreed that when we go to Istanbul again, it will be at the Centrum. If you want five star quality, stay at a five star hotel. If you want to be in the action, and near all sights, stay at Centrum. Our A/C was awesome, and our windows were double paned, so we couldn't hear any noise from the streets. The trick to walking by the restaurants...is keep walking, don't stop. If you feel they are pushy and annoying, then just say no thanks and keep going. It is their livelihood, so expect people to try their hardest to get you to their shops. But its all part of the experience, which we found amazing. The people of Istanbul are so helpful. My mother fell down on the uneven sidewalks, and three people rushed to help her in seconds. This courtesy is the same at the Centrum Hotel. I had some issues with my voucher, Suzan fixed it immediately, I had left my ID there, and the manager sent it immediately to my residence. I highly recommend staying at this hotel. Its what you make of your trip, so enjoy all this amazing place has to offer.

Room Tip: We had room 105, on the corner, I recommend a corner suit because it has two windows.

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.
