“Good affordable accommodation near taksim square”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

I booked this last minute for a business trip near taksim square. They have 3 residential buildings with Taksim Suite the main reception area. taksim residence is further away from taksim square about 10 minutes walk through narrow alleys.

The studio apartment is reasonable sized and had a balcony. They have a fridge, dishwasher, stove kettle and a safe if people want to use it. I was out most of the day time so only used this to sleep.

The room was clean on arrival however had a damp smell about it. The bathroom was again clean but weirdest age like smell on and off. The shower had mould around the corners but otherwise clean. They supply towels and toiletries.

For the price I paid and for sole purpose of sleeping at night time this property is adequate for those who would like to be near taksim square. If you are looking for hotel type experience than this is not for you.

There is a small shop in front of apartments where you can buy water, tea, milk etc.
easy to get to taksim square with lots of restaurants, cafes around nearby.

All in all a good experience for me as a lone traveller on business trip and close to taksim square.

Suggestions:
Clean rooms daily- they only cleaned when I asked them to.
Please provide at least a water bottle in room for guests on arrival.

We stayed in this hotel for 12 nights.a prety long time to say every thing about hotel.the location of hotel is looking good in the map but in fact there is an old alley with very impolite peoples that every time ready for a strugle and fight.you can walk in this place till late night but you fill not safe also anything not happens because there is many family lives in this place...you can find everythings in taksim street that is a 10 min distance on foot.the brakefast is very very poor i can say nothing you can find in brakefast,the rooms are little and a bit dirty and not clean...they dont clean rooms untill you say the staff:" please clean the room"
You should choose this hotel just for its close distance to taxi stations and metro station...

My friend and I were really happy with the Three Apples Residence. We were received with genuine warmth by the staff and taken to our building just down the street. The apartment was spacious, modern and super clean. Very comfortable bed. Perfect.

The residence is very close to Taksim Square and all the tram connections. The neighborhood is very quiet and the people were friendly all over the place. There are plenty of 24 hour grocery stores near the residence so that you can buy supplies to take to the room or prepare a meal.

I would like to thank all of the staff and Three Apples Residence. And a SPECIAL SHOUT OUT to "HEY YOU" (that's how he calls himself because, as he explained, his Turkish name is impossible to pronounce for foreigners) and a MUCHAS GRACIAS for opening the padlock on my suitcase ( I had lost the key) without even breaking the lock. Hey You is the go-to guy for everything there.

I highly recommend this aparthotel.

Warm regards from Spain to the staff :)

Room Tip: I suggest going up to the terrace on the rooftop in the evening. Very peaceful.

Helpful, Lovely, Friendly people and nice place.
Next to the pubblic transports, in the heart of the city but it still a quiet area where to relax without the noise of the city.
Nothing to complain about it!

Good quality and good price.
Go for it!

Very basic but good. If you can, stay at the Suites a few blocks away. The guys who run the hotel are super nice. The area is really dense with people, no sidewalks, but super convenient for hanging out in Istanbul.

We stayed at the Gold Suit (Room 333) for one night and unfortunately we left there without good feelings. We had stayed at Three Apples Suites last yelar and the Hotel and staff were quite good. Therefore we thought it's ok to stay in the second building as well. However we were terribly mistaken! The Room was big and looking comfortable at first, but with a closer look we saw the couch was all stained and smelly. The bigger surprise was waiting us in the bedroom. When we opened the bed we saw a huge quantity of body hair on the sheets, pillow covers were also dirty and smelly. We didn't want to create any problems at night so we checked the other bedroom first. But the other bed also had dirty sheets (with some curious stains ) and pillow covers. So we called the reception and made a complaint about the situation. He said he would send someone immediately. We thought taht "someone" would be housekeeper but instead the night guard arrived. He was only told that we needed some sheets. When we explained the situation he tried to help us in any was he can and we are thankful for his behaviour. We shared our disappointment with him and he suggested that we should speak to the manager the next day. We literally made our bed ourselves with his help and used clean towels as pillow covers. We thought that reception would take into consideration to deliver our situation to the manager, but nothing happened. When we called the reception to inform him our departure he didn't even asked anything and we left. As a previous guest I would never have imagined that the second building could be so dirty and I have never stayed in such a dirty hotel Room before.
