“Excellent!”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

We stayed for two nights here and a few nights in the old city. We regretted to change the hotel to the one in the old city. Emerald hotel was just perfect!!!! Very good location, close to the shuttle bus to the both airports and of course Taksim. Needless to say, staff were friendly and helpful as well. I will definitely come back to this hotel next time :-)

Great little hotel just off Taksim Sq. Front desk staff was fluent in English and very helpful. Room, while smallish, was tastefully done with contemporary furnishings and neutral decor. Bathroom was modern and clean. Good breakfast buffet with several cook-to-order options and while room was on lowest level of hotel there was still natural light. Great value for the price.

We stayed one night in a standard room. Room very small not much room for bags and to spread out. Tea and coffee provided. Very clean. Bathroom had plenty of toiletries and shower pressure great. Buffet breakfast next morning had lots of choice and eggs made to order. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Location was fine restaurants within a few minutes walk. Would recommend for short stay or if staying longer select a different type of room which may be more spacious. We chose the standard room as only staying the one night and really just needed somewhere to put our heads down.

Room Tip: standard room very small

We stayed for two nights in Emerald Hotel and that was one of the best hotels we tried in Istanbul. This was my fifth time visiting Istanbul. The location is very near the Taksim and Istiklal cadd. The service is good and the staff are very polite. The room and especially the bathroom is very clean and modern. We did not try the breakfast and the restaurant.

I stayed twice in this hotel, in different prebooked rooms, one week at a time. In my view the hotel is a bit expensive, taking into account what you get. But maybe the price reflects general price level in the area.

The breakfast was notoriously uninspiring, and based on cheap products - even if it was consistent of a number of dishes, I barely enjoyed any of them.

The staff of the hotel were noisy while cleaning the hotel - including loud chats in the stairs. Also, smoke entered the room from the lobby. The doors of the rooms did not stop neither noise, nor smoke. I was deprived some sleep, and was frustrated over health issues.

The rooms are OK, as well as the location of the hotel.

We were there in late april. Had a nice room on the 6th floor. Nice little private terrasse with an incredible view over Taksim. Very clean and close to the citycenter and tram...
From Attaturk Airport a yellow taxi will be around 50 Lira (meter!). If you order a pickup at the airport i'll be 35 Euro

Truly beautiful and posh hotel inside ,it is a really high class of experience!! I have stayed in this hotel for 4 nights and thanks to all staff that they are really upbeat, extremely helpful and kind. I got many information about what to do around the taksim area. Also there was a really cool fat and funny manager that he gave us a ride to Mecidiyekoy. The location are the best in town for me. They are really very close to Taksim and also it is not noisy so u can rest clearly... The rooms are very well appointed. Breakfast was great, and there is a waffle machine that is cool; i like waffle very much.

A lovely, inviting, and beautiful hotel!
