We try to come every year..We love Turkey, and we stayed at Yunus Emre Hotel many times, each time we like it better. Very clean, very friendly, and most of all we feel very safe. Hotel is walking distance to everyting: Transportation, all important sites..You can not find better place in Istanbul far as the price, location , acomodations and the staff.

I have stayed 5 times at this hotel so it must be doing something right. The owners are friendly and helpful and the hotel is well-located and very reasonable in price. It is not perfect (walls of rooms are very thin, beds are comfotable enough but the bed frames are badly designed - take care not to bash your knee against it, Wi-Fi doesn't work throughput the hotel, breakfast is basic and could be upgraded a little and start earlier than it does - 8.00 AM is very late for tourists who want to get an early start to see the sights) but these are relatively small niggles. I do not expect perfection in a hotel of this rating and price range. I have stayed in many 5-star hotels that charge as much as the Yunus Emre's day-rate just for use of an internet service which this hotel provides free of charge.

We stayed here with our teenager children. The hotel is very well located, around the corner from the Blue Mosque, in a pleasant area. Staff are friendly and really very helpful. The rooms were clean and well equipped. There is even free internet. Very much recommended. We had a lovely stay.

I have just read through reviews from last year and take exception to the whining and complaining of a few of last year's visitors. I stayed there on 4 occasions with small groups of over 50'travelers....and on EVERY occasion - everyone was totally happy with all aspects of the hotel...I am now booked back in April and June and have 8 clients staying there in May. I look forward to breakfasts on that fabulous patio over- looking the Marmaris ....and to fun take out meals from the DOY DOY Restaurant across the street....Sadly some tourists desire Four Season's quality for a typical local pension!

Very basic, clean and enjoyable. Breakfast in the morning is included and served on roof top terrace where you can see beautiful vistas, Blue Mosque, Oblix and Bosporus Bay. Hotel staff is friendly and somewhat helpful. Main reason I stayed there was it's closeness to Blue Mosque, Aya Sophia and Topkapi Palace. Tram station and Sultan Ahmet shopping and restaurants are close bye. Doy Doy and Bohara Restaurants serving authentik Turkish foods are few steps away.

we had a terrible experience at the Yunus Emre hotel. They provided barely mediocre rooms for the price they charge. Not only that, for the three nights that we stayed in the hotel, not once did they bother to clean up the room. we had unfortunately pre booked ourselves for three nights else we would have run out of the establishment on our first night here. the hotel is undoubtedly well located, but then there are so many other options even for location for one to suffer their kind of mediocre service. the breakfast served was barely passable. they scrimped on fresh fruits, even despite asking for it. they were overeager to book us on various tours. tea and coffee seemed like luxuries in this hotel. they almost singlehadedly left a blemish on my otherwise wonderful turkish holiday.

lacrima97, Manager at Hotel Yunus Emre, responded to this review, 15 December 2010
Sorry for the unplesant experience you had in our place i wish that i could be aware of that and be able to change .You are right some of our rooms are not too large but most of guests do not mind it.
Again i am sure that you are right about cleaning the room and i am terribly sorry about it we clean the rooms every 2 days not every day and i might miss your room when i was given' the must be cleaned rooms' list to the stuff thank you for writing it now i am much more carefull about it.
About breakfast again you might be right ( customer is always right) we serve beside of standart breakfast ( cheese , salami , eggs , butter , gem , honey , chocolate cream , tomatos , cucumber , cornflakes) fried potatos , French tost and at your request we prepare omelets and some season fruites .
As drinks basical tea , nesscoffee and milk at guest request and extracharge fresh orange juice.

Again apologee for inconvenience and wish you good time without unplesand experience
