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

I stayed in Grand Emin hotel during my visit to Istanbul earlier this month, stayed there for a week. The hotel is in a good location, "Yenikapi" which is so close to "Aksaray". Transportation is easy from the hotel. The bus station "Yenikapi" is 3 mins walking from the hotel where you can take the bus to Taksim Square. And... More

Grand Emin is an average hotel with small rooms. The visitor should not expect to much out of this hotel.Strong points are its good spot in the old city and clean bathroom . Weak points are, poor breakfast (quality), relatively clean rooms, problems with blocked piping in bathroom, indiferent staff. Indicated for average budget holidays.

The location is great, the room size is good and clean, bed is very good, free Internet in the room and in the lobby, security entry to the lift. Very closed to Sultanahmet square. The reception staff were very helpful and offered immediately to change the room given to us when we complain about smoke smell.
