“Good value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

It's central location and friendly staff make Emek a very good choice for a low budget stay in Sultanahmet in Istanbul. The rooms may be small but they are clean and adequate for those who only require a place to spend the night. Heating was great, as I visited in the middle of winter and I happened to arrive during a blizzard - the hot shower was an absolute medicine! Staff was great in making me feel at home, they even came to pick me up on my first night out, when I got lost in the little streets in the dead of snow. I would certainly recommend this for the low budget traveller: hard to get lower prices right next to Top Kapi Palace!

The hotel is very noisy because of the noise of the lift, and the people going by. There is no soundproof, so we could hear the doors, the people and the plumbing. The pictures provided by the hotel date from 15 years and don't correspond to the reality. The room is 6 square meters, and the bathroom 1 square meter. The shower is on top of the toilet, smelly and moldy.

The only good things are the location of the hotel, very convenient to visit the old city, and the fact that the staff is kind but we luckily left as soon as we could to find a better place.

I stayed 2 nights when I arrived in Istanbul after checking the internet site, but this hotel was somehow horrible, very dirty and hotel staffs were ot so kind to us. I never want to stay this hotel in future when I visit Istanbul.

We booked this hotel to stay in for a week in Istanbul, but moved out after 1.

We had booked a "en suite double". We got a tiny room with a double bed squeezed in, no other furniture apart from a small bedside table, a "en-suite" which was a dirty wet-room with no seperation between toilet and shower.

There were also squashed dead insects on the walls when we arrived.

Breakfast was traditional Turkish, but low quality.

Cheapish price, but in our experience not worth it. Pay a bit more to avoid places like this.
