Editorial review:

The Central Palace hotel has a wellness theme. There are parquet floors instead of asthma-inducing carpets. Fruit juices for every ailment are available by room service, the restaurant food only serves organic fare, and massage showers and Jacuzzis are installed in every bathroom. Ten rooms have their own exercise bike. Accommodations are luxurious and all fabrics are from Vakko (Istanbul’s most elite store). The only things lacking are views and alcohol service.

Verified Reviews:

  • Visa card didn't work - Noise from the street - View of bosphorus - Prices are quite high
  • Rooms very very large - Bed is enormous - Good service - Free parking
  • Fitness club and hammam - No swimming pool - Free wifi - Highly recommended
  • Close to the main shopping street - Short walk to the metro - Lovely breakfast
  • Next to taksim square - Room was great - Jacuzzi in the bathroom - Staff is very efficient

    Very nice view value for money nice room

  • Couple
    7.0

    The location was great, 2 minutes away from istiklal street, subway, bus station

    You could not adjust the room temperature, it was very hot and you have to suffer according to their sense of temperature, the bathroom did not have a window and did not have a fan for ventilation. we stayed there for 5 nights and during our stay there was no internet connection and each time we ask about it they say we are working on this technical problem

  • Couple
    6.2

    This is, as previous reviewers commented, indeed NOT a 5-star hotel, it operates at 4-star level. Boking.com is aware of this, but does not act. We have stayed at other 5-star hotels in the same or adjacent streets at much lower rates.

    A/C failure cost us one night sleep (room temp approx 28C). Construction next door cost us another night sleep (work until 3am). No LCD, yet it was sold to us as having it. Wireless was out for a day. Hotel requires payment in full upon arrival (we never experienced this before), most probably to avoid any discussion later as to items mentioned above. No alcohol served, as the hotel operates under religious traditions.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    The hotel was good, there was an AC issue while we were there which made sleeping uncomfortable for us. All staff members were very nice and helpful.

  • Couple
    9.6

    the design of the room, the big space of the room as well the hospitality of the staff

  • Couple
    7.4

    The staff were very friendly and the rooms were nice. Location was good (in a nice part of town with lots of nice resturants nearby), but not in walking distance to the main attractions.

    The building next door was being torn down and they worked through the night (althopugh the manager said he asked them 10 times to stop, but they had a paper saying it was allowed) so we couldn't really sleep. When we complained the refused to give us any price reduction, but when I asked if they would let us use the Turkish bath for free they at least did that to make up for it, so it was fair in the end.

    The Hotel and the staff was just wonderful . Everyone went out of the way to make us feel welcome. Okan was just amazing person and they make you feel as you are a part of the family not just staying at another hotel.

    The Location, Staff, Clean, Comfort, breakfast

    The Bathroom is abit small compaire to the 5stars hotels

  • Group of friends

    Staff was super friendly, room was also very good

    The breakfast was not so good, the bread itself for example

    Staff helpful----location----braekfast---

    External picture is not true!!.A.C Is very bad [hot in hot weather] 2 days complain -became fane!!---hotel is not 5 stars equal to 5 stars international ones.--

  • Single
    8.8

    The room was big, well decorated and the jaccuzi. Good location, near allmost everything.The staff was very friendly & helpfull , especialy Mr. " hamza". It's A nice hotel.

  • Group of friends
    9.2

    The staff were extremly helpful especially at reception.Management was very professional and accommodating.Food was excellant.

    The only negative point worth mentioning was the fact that no alchol was available as the establishment is dry and run on strictly islamic terms.No big deal (although a glass of wine with dinner would have been nice) but a note informing you when booking would be advised.

  • Single
    9.2

    The hotel is very good and clean , rooms are very small but clean ,breakfast presents a wide choice and the hotel staff are helpfull and very nice people.

    Tiny room with stylish furniture (very big),would be better if the TV closet was replaced by a LCD device on the wall,it might give space to the room, in the bathroom : there was shampoo and shower gel, but no conditioner .The AC was adjusted as heater , probably because we were in the month of April and the weather was a little bit cold, but the room was warm and I really needed a cool AC .These are all my comments on the hotel apart that the hotel is very good in general.

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    god location.big room sizes.

    Rooms are vry noisy because of the club next to the hotel which plays a desibel of music sound up to 02:00 am.No alcoholic bevereges served which shoul be announced in their web-sıte or in your portal.

  • Single
    7.8

    Hotel stuff was very helpful when needed to prolong my staying because I had to wait for my home airport to be reopened (vulcano issue). Hotel was clean and in good location.
