The hotel is located in a narrow street which is the only down side of the hotel. The person at reception, Mesut Abus, was really nice and showed me where all the transport was, how to get places. The room was small, but very clean.
I would say it was a good place if you are either on a business trip or with friends.

If u are looking for a good deal in Istanbul which is normally a quite pricey place to stay 3 Apples Residence can be an excellent alternative. Paid a nice amount of money for a double room and stayed there 3 nights. Location is a point of discussion coz if u are not a single lady or a group of girls it s ok coz the hotel is located a bit inside of a not nice area- especially when u have plans to go out at night or come back after dark-actually nothing to be afraid of but single ladies can feel a bit uncomfortable. That is why when booking pay attention to the name: 3 apples residence is the one inside and 3 apples suites is the one u can see almost from the main road (there is a small price difference of course)ç. Apart from this tiny detail u make check in at the so called reception located in the building of 3 apples suites and then they are sending you to the proper place (with a kinda bell boy) :) Place itself is a new, very nice looking building. our room- actually a small ca.35 m kinda flat with its own bathroom and a kitchen corner and a tiny "living room" area. Free of charge Wi-Fi is a nice but important detail. Central heating was working suprisingly good:) Noises from outside weren t disturbing at all. Liked it - thumb definetely up :)

This property was a little difficult to get to via cab since it is in a working class neighborhood where there aren't any other hotels. Our driver found the main building where we checked into the small office lobby (nice,English speaking manager). They rolled our luggage to our apartment via a few winding streets, about a 5 minute walk. Nice quiet, safe, working class neighborhood. A few little markets a block away to get basic food items. The only noise at night was the neighbor's prowling tomcat and a rooster that cok-a-doodled at 10pm every night! The location is fabulous; a 10-15 minute walk to Taksim Square in Beyoglu area.
Our apartment was very clean, contemporary and spacious. Small kitchen with dishwasher,stove,micro, and refrigerator. Small shower stall may be an issue for largish people. No bathtub. Hot water. Heated floor in bathroom and heated towel rack was a nice touch. Our balcony view was not so great; you're looking at neighbor's clotheslines . Our balcony door was locked and the management couldn't find key to open it. Windows open.
One caveat; we called management office for a wake up call and a taxi to the airport. They said to call back at 630am next morning and they would arrange. They never answered the phone at 630 after numerous phone calls. Luckily, we weren't counting on their wake up call and walked a few blocks and had no problems hailing a cab. There are no elevators here and you walk up circular stairs to your upper floor apartment. Be prepared for the numerous stairs unless you have a first floor apartment. I would definitely recommend this place and stay again because of the spacious accommodations,great location,helpful staff and nice quiet neighborhood (except for the rooster)!

Nice Ground floor room with a patio. Friendly staff, especially night security guard who was always vigilant. Stayed for 2 weeks. Room was cleaned 2-3 times a week which was enough. Dishwasher, Microwave, kettle, stove, and fridge. Laundry room in the basement. Nice cheap grocery store hardly a minute walk away. The air-conditioner in the room is very powerful. While most channels on tv are in Turkish, go through all 400 or so channels even if half of them are blank, you'll find some 3-4 English ones. Some have English programs only at night. The patio is very nice if you want to have a smoke or a drink in fresh air.

Just do your research on how to get there beforehand as the reception is in their other building close by.Most locals in the neighborhood don't speak english and are therefore not able to help much with directions. It is also advisable to print the map to the hotel. Best to look/ask for Cartoon Hotel (Yeah CARTOON not Carlton) on the main road and then just go down the alley next to it. After about 2 minutes walk, you'll see Three Apples Hotel on the left. That is where you'll find the reception and someone from their staff with escort you to the Residence building which is another 2-3 minutes away.

The location looks a little intimidating as it is in a low income residential area but it is safe. My gf and I would come back really late at nights and in the morning but never encountered a problem. However, like any other city it is best not to walk alone late at night. While nothing ever happened to us but we felt more comfortable since it was the two of us.

Generally it is a good area to stay as Taksim Square and Istaklal street are very close. The advantage of staying there is that the hotel is 50-100 Euros cheaper per night, compared to the ones closer to the main streets of Taksim Square, without compromising with the state of the rooms. The coaches (Havas) to and from the airport stop close by.

Once you get the hang of the streets and short cuts it is very close to all the happening areas (ask the hotel staff who escorts you to the Residence for the short cut. It is the street next to your building. Go straight. You hit the Parking lot (Ottopark). Take the Stairs next to the Parking lot and it will bring you to the nice neighborhood with decent food and bars). Ask anyone for Taksim square. Barely 2-3 minutes walk all in a nice area. Price of food and drinks even water in the area are almost half of Sultanahmet. Going to Sultanahmet from there is very easy via bus or underground trains. Visit the bars two/three streets adjacent (the area after the Ottopark) if you're looking for a quieter bar as compared to the ones behind istaklal.

Room Tip: We were in the room on the Ground Floor (American First Floor/ International Ground Floor). I am not...

We (three girls) stayed at Three Apples Residence for 4 nights in September. The room was pretty small but yet absolutely enough for us and lots of space to put your things. Clean and really fresh, even with a dish washer. Small balcony. The location was great, really close to Taksim square and the shopping and bar/restaurant district around Istiklal. Yet very quiet just around the residence. Very nice and helpful staff.
