Excellent hotel and great location. Located right behind the Blue Mosque and views of the Marmara sea. Bulent and Maria were very helpful and nice. A very good stay for cheap price with a great breakfast. Good value and great location near all the main attractions. Will visit again soon. Thank you. Regards. Nayaab.

I've stayed here three times now in the last three years in both the hostel-style rooms and the hotel rooms. The hostel rooms are about what you'd expect: average, but they're also very cheap. They don't have AC, the bunk beds are short, and the bathroom is all-in-one with the toilet, sink, and shower-head all in the same area. The... More

If you're looking for a reasonably priced hotel in the old city this is good value and perfect location - 2 mins to Sultanahmet Square and Blue Mosque . We needed to add extra days to our booking at last minute and they were extremely helpful to find us rooms . The owner Bulent, his family and staff are charming... More

I've stood both at the hotel room and the basement dorm for 10 days, I enjoyed the friendly approach of Bulent the receptionist and the two workers Nafas and Jelal which were very friendly and helpful. The lobby can get very hot but the atmosphere is inviting. The rooms are basic and the dorm is very damping and no air... More

I had booked a room in another hotel through Expedia. After a long flight from Chicago, I got there just to find out that the hotel did not have any rooms available! To make a long story short, a middle man brought me to Yunus Emre hotel and I told the person at the front desk about the situation. He... More
