When i first booked it i had doubts because the price was very cheap,it was just because an early reservation discount :) and i was very surprised by a smiley welcome,and very fresh and clean rooms.not so big but i think comfortable for single or double stay.the hotel just smells like lemon and flowers which make u feel clean.although lemon is located at the very centre of taksim,it is the only street which is very quite.and in the morning helpful stuff to arrange a good trip for you around istanbul.. Wi fii was the best and it was all free..there is always someone waiting at the reception desk,i think for the best price i picked the best place even if though it was only for 3nights.thanks DINCER for a great host,thanks to Lemon Family!!!!

Situated a short walk from Taxsim Sqaure and the hustle bustle of İstiklal Avenue, I found the Lemon Residence to be a convenient location, and a quite escape when I needed it! Off the main roads and in the back streets, it can feel like a you are a resident of Istanbul rather than a tourist as the locals sip coffee and play backgammon outside in the street.

The rooms were clean, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was working perfectly.

Dincer (the manager) provided excellent tips, care, and a hearty Turkish breakfast each morning.

Great value for money.

We stayed at Lemon Residence back in May 2013 for a couple of nights at the backend of our 2 week European trip through Paris/Santorini/Athens/Istanbul. Overall, we thought Lemon Residence exceeded our expectations. The room was reasonably priced and the location was terrific. The manager Dincer was very friendly and helpful and answered our questions about the city we had.

The location may seem a little intimidating being in a back alley, but once you get to know the area, my wife and I felt perfectly safe, even late at night. The room itself is modernly decorated and look exactly like the pictures and sleep quality was great. From time to time you may hear the airplanes flying over the area, but it was not a major issue.

For the money you pay, I would highly recommend Lemon Residence.
