Grand Emin Hotel
Ranked #1,054 of 1,159 Hotels in Istanbul
Reviewed 13 September 2011

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.

Room Tip: Choose fron part rooms as back room have noise from gamblers playing outside day and night

I was delighted with the hospitality and the attention given by the staff. The atmosphere is very nice. I has been newly refurbished and the interior is very well designed with nice combination of colors. Nice and comfortable lobby with Wifi all around. The rooms are cozy, comfortable and the decoration show great harmony. I would definitely recommend it and will be back for my next visit to Istanbul.

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.

The Hotel is located in the center of the tourist area, but the area itself is only open for restaurants nothing much to do there and the shop around (except restaurants) close too early !

The Hotel rooms is too small, the t.v. set sucks ! the A/C in our room & and our friends room wasn't cooling enough ! after we complained it worked fine ! In both rooms you will only find 1 socket to plug in your charger, etc and the other one in the toilet !

Speaking of the toilet !! Don't except any amenities from them ! bring your own except the towel ! The shower tub is too small and you need to climb to get there !! and by the time you finish your shower ! you will find the floor wet !

The bar/fridge was empty in both rooms !

our room had no place to hung our cloths (or put them) as it was occupied by bed sheets =)

The breakfast had nothing nice at all :S .. Take my advise and find a hotel in Taksim Square its worth everything in that lively area (open all nite long)

An absolutely horrible hotel with no facilities. Horrible bathrooms , small rooms, Small and stupid television set. No room service facilities.
Not even a basic restaurant. Not a very nice locality. Unfriendly Staff.

The worst thing was the breakfast buffet.It was the worst ever. Nothing to nice to eat. Nobody should go to this cheap hotel.~

Was there for 7 days with my spouse. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to my worst enemy. Service was terrible and staff is rude and not helpful. Room was too small and not clean and bathroom could barely fit one grown man. TV was smaller then my cell phone and had only Turkish channels and internet was only available in the lobby. Breakfast was absolutely terrible and it was exactly same for whole 7 days (it's probably always the same) and if you want to bring yourself a breakfast to your room they will charge you 5$. Bar is more closed then open and too expensive if you bumped to it when is actually open. Terrace was also closed for the whole time. Housekeeping people just go trough your room and pick up some trash and that's it. It was just awful and it ruined our visit to Istanbul. Run away as far as you can from this Hotel.

İt used to be a nice hotel. I stayed there the third time. But the last time was terrible.
Very rude behaviors and disrespectful attitude. You can't even welcome a friend in your room for 5 minutes. They thing you are doing bad things in your room. I wont ever stay in Grand Emin Hotel or their brother hotels "AYMA 1, AYMA 2".
