Please believe me we I say all of this, do not go to this hotel!, i am not overreacting, i am not lying, i just want to warn you, I dont know why there is so many good reviews from Emek but I can tell that they are not true, maybe it was from the Emek´s staff to increase the clients. Definitely i do not recommend this hotel (if it can be called like that) for me is like a hostel. The pictures from the internet shows that the room is bigger than it is, cleaner, and to much prettier than it is. First the street is awful, full of constructions, dirt, and very dark street, no ilumination and dangerous at night. The building seems to be from the 1900, it seems that it has never been renovated. When we got to the hotel there was a french family yelling that their whole trip was ruined, I asked the reception what happened but they didnt tell me, now I know why. As soon as I asked that hey told us very quickly to pay before we saw our room (what a mistake to trust them!) and when we got to the room our bed was dirty, there was no view from the window, the window was broken, the bathroom is in precarious conditions (very dirty, too small, smelled bad). The room is so small that you can open your arms and it is almost posible to touch both walls with them. The TV that there is, is very old so old that I havent seen anything like it in my life, we didnt wanted to watch TV at all, but still, I you have this kind of old TV it is better to leave the room without it. As soon as we saw our room we got out and asked for our money back, we couldnt believe what we were seeing. There are a thousand more options than this hotel in Istanbul and with very similar prices and a lot better hotels. There is the Q inn hotel (like 200mts from there), we just payed 40e more for our whole staying (3 nights) and you will see the difference between this crappy hotel emek and the Q inn hotel. We felt so tricked by the staff, the owner, and the images that they uploaded on the internet. They are not people to trust. Please believe me, as a friend, dont stay on this hotel, find another one, I am just trying to help you. Unfortunatly we got out so fast from the room that we couldnt take pictures from it. I know it is hard to believe with all the good reviews that there is, but please dont go there, Hotel-Hostel Emek is not the only cheap Hotel in Istanbul.
