The Hotel has a great location with transportation like tram and underground walking distance. Not for the old, as getting there from the main road is a distance to walk. Rooms were cramped to say the least. Not at all clean. We had to change our room twice. The soap dispenser in the shower does not work. The house keeping... More

Grand Emin is not grand, that's for sure. It is a decent (closer 2 than 3 stars) hotel with great location (T1 tram that goes to the city center Sultanahmet is 5 minutes walk from the hotel, underground is also nearby), unmotivated stuff (their English is also far from grand), decent breakfast (coffee machine was out of order every morning),...

The rooms were really clean, the staff weren't really friendly though. Our room didn't have a window in it, which wasn't cool, couldn't really tell night from day. Breakfast buffet was alright. The Hotel is located between Aksaray and Yenikapi, which is a great area, transportation is really easy. It's also near a bus station.

The hotel is close to the historical places,BUT in the middle of the ghetto! We had a room first, which was very dirty and the AC didn't work, therefore we had to move to another room, which was slightly better, but here the shower drainage system didn't work. About the service: the day before we checked out, we asked the... More

I read the reviews before we took the trip via a all included tour which used this hotel during our stay in Instanbul. The reviews were horrible so I was very apprehensive about staying there. But it wasn't as bad as the reviews. But it wasn't great. For 1-2 nights it was ok. But I would not pay 4* thinking... More

It is a good hotel to be in the old, near to tram station, which helps to reach in the historic areas (Agia Sofia, Blue Camii, etc). It is renovated with minimal decoration and earth colors in the rooms. It doesn't have expensive decoration, but the room relaxs you after an exhausting day of sightseeing. Breakfast itsn't something special, but... More
