“Amazing staff”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

Amazing staff always available who wants you to enjoy your stay. Very good customer service.
The hotel is located very close to Taksim but on Talarbasi, which is not the best neighborhood, so late at night it is not very exciting to go out...but it is only 5 mins away!

Personnel vraiment dévoue a sa clientèle!
La rue ou se trouve l'hotel est une petite rue pas tres bien eclairee. Pour une femme seule ce n'est peut etre pas le meilleur endroit mais le personnel veille a ce que tout se passe bien....

Excellent value for money, great amenities and the friendliest bunch of guys at your beck and call. Lemon Residence is situated a couple of minutes from Taksim Square and Istikla Street, both major attractions in Istanbul. Owners and staff are eager to assist wherever they can and the cups of tea they offer are tremendous. Whether it be chatting about sports or technology these chaps really know their stuff. In short, comfort, convenience, value and service are phenomenal. Beautifully renovated building. Smart and stylish. Cant wait for my next holiday to Istanbul.

I stayed here for a weekend with friends. A great value for money, good service at any time and good location.

The owner and the staff made the stay perfect, always helpfull. Istanbul is an amazing city. Lemon Residence is very close to the main street, and you can walk to many sites and restaurants and avoid public transportation.

The next time I visit Istanbul, Lemon Residence will be the frist choice:)
Thank you for a nice stay!

I stayed here for a week with my boyfriend and the hotel did not disappoint! If you’re thinking about booking this hotel, stop thinking and just do it, you won’t regret it. The hotel was easy to find considering it’s on a back street and we were surprised to find out how close it was to the main shopping street with its many bars, restaurants and shisha lounges. Taksim Square (which is currently undergoing renovation) is only a 5 minute walk away. Here you’ll find the metro station, where a trip to the main tourist attractions is only a simple, pleasant journey away. The staff do a great job at welcoming you to the city; so much so, we were greeted with tea and biscuits and a friendly chit chat! With this hotel, you don’t have to worry about the room being disappointing as ours was just like the photos, but even cosier. So cosy in fact that it was almost impossible to leave the room on certain days as I’m sure Lemon remember ;-) Security wise, someone is present at reception 24/7 which also came in handy when we needed advice, late night munchies or even somewhere to watch the footie! We’re already planning on a return visit in the future and we’ll definitely be recommending the place to prospective visitors to the city. The hotel exceeded our expectations which made it a perfect valentine’s getaway!! Thanks Lemon!

In the words of Arnie: we'll be back ;-)

A great value for money! We stayed there for four days. We had a great time. Everyone was very helpfull, friendly and they made our stay plaisant. The room was very clean and cosy, and the breakfast rich and tasty. The owner and the staff gave us information about the city so we visited alot of places in our short stay. The city is amazing and the hotel is very close to the center so you can walk to many sites and avoid public transportation.
The next time we will visit Instabul we will stay for sure in Lemon Residence again!

I stayed in a hotel with my boyfriend. The hotel was for Istanbul very affordable and cheap, but the location is outstanding. There is less then a minute to the most famous Istiklal street and Taksim square, it is very easy to access all other historical areas such as Hagia Sofia, Sultanahmet, Grand bazaar. Personally we decided to take a walk to there, take a lot of photographs and meet the people on side streets also :) All in all, it is perfect starting point for city tiptoeing, partying, or for nice romantic dinner.
The hotel staff is extremely nice and respectful. I loved the fact that hotel manager Mr. Dincer Hardal was personally always available for us, for calling the taxi, giving us some useful city trip tips, planning a daily ski trip to Uludag, and he even helped me to arrange and prepare very beautiful surprise in the room for my boyfriend. :)
I warmly recommend this lovely hotel to everyone. For me and my boyfriend this was really great experience and we will definitely return there, I hope very soon!!!
Kind regards from Slovenia

Room Tip: Just speak with Mr. Dincer, he is the best when preparing the best for his guests. The rooms are any...
