    Fabulous

    Situated literally a stone's throw from Taksim Square, Lemon is located on quiet side street which is a blessing in a noisy city like Istanbul.. This a small and very friendly hotel, exceptionally clean with modern smart furnishings. The manager Dincer makes a huge effort to make sure your stay is really pleasant. .

    The area is undergoing major urban development and many of the buildings near the hotel are empty and at night attract some dodgy characters. I was traveling on my own so had a single room which was small and comfortable. It didn't have a stove but as I wasn't cooking it didn't matter.

    It was an amazing discovery. I had been to Istanbul many times as it's my favorite city on Earth, but I had never had such a special treatment and value for the money spent. The Lemon Residence is very affordable and very centrally located, and the rooms are nice and clean, and the staff amazingly friendly and helpful. I feel that finally after so many times in the city, I found THE place to stay in Istanbul.

    The hotel stuff was super friendly and always very helpful. We received tips concerning what to visit and where to go out. Lemon residence is perfect especially for short or week end trips because it's a small and more personal hotel and because it is very favorably located, next to a busy Taksim area with many bars, clubs, restaurants and shopping possibilities.

    I was first a little bit sceptical even when I looked at all the reviews, but this hotel is definitely worth it. Location = Great; 2 minutes to Taksim Square, but in a very quiet side street Room = Spacious, modern, clean, state of the art, free Wifi, very comfortable bed Price = Unbeatable Hotel Employees : The owner/manager of the hotel Dincer is the soul and heart of Lemon Residence. He does everything for you. Wifi connection was a little bit bad in the beginning and within 5 minutes, we had the strongest 3g connection ever. Always very helpful when needed. Thank you

    The manager of the hotel was absolutely nice. He was helpful and attentive. The location of the hotel is good, not far from Taksim station, and there is a bus station in 2-3 minutes from the hotel direction to Eminonu. The room was OK.

    We had the room at the 1st floor and closest to the stairs. We can hear everything from the lobby, even light conversation between 2 people. The 1st night was hard and slept only when conversation finished in the ground floor. The 2nd day was OK because we were too tired and fall asleep immediately.

    The owner/manager, Dinçer Hardal, is very friendly and welcoming. Location is very near to Taksim Square for transport, sightseeing, etc. Rooms are tastefully decorated and well-cleaned. It is located in a quiet area.

    Only the manager can speak English and when he is away communication is extremely limited.

    When I first saw this hotel on Booked.net there were no ratings and I was not sure to go for it or no...I took the risk and booked for 19th Sep 12 and I must say that I didnt regret a bit! I stayed for 6 days.The hotel was spotless clean, no disturbance at all, location was perfect...it was 4 mins walking to Taksim and less than 2 mins to Esteghlal street but it was not noisy unlike the other reviews about hotels located in that area plus the rate was very good for the services provided. All the services mentioned in the description and the photos can be fully trusted. Very comfortable and safe!The staffs were extremely nice and helpful! I have no words to explain how wonderful it was to stay there! Just perfect in every way. Those who choose this hotel will not regret!

    Nothing at all! Everything was perfect and I actually didn't wanna come back home!! I'll surely choose this hotel on every visit to IST and I have recommended the same to my friends too! I'm sure those who stay will agree to the same!
