Absolutely horrible! Stay away from this place! The place is a run down motel roach hole in the wall in some twisted back alley a stone's throw from Taksim Sq. They dont have an elevator so you have to lug your bags upstairs yourself. The front staff is exceptionally rude and unhelpful. We were told to leave our bags by reception and they would be attended to.we got back from dinner and they were still there. Had to pay a kid in the street to take our bags up 5 flights of narrow windy stairs to our room since the night shift said 'it wasn't his problem'. When we asked to leave, he said that he wouldnt issue any kind of refund as we had booked through trip advisor for the wonderful rate of 90 euros per night. Our bags had stayed in reception without any security with people going in an out for hours when we were assured that it would have been attended to. Upon check in our rooms were cleaned while we waited in the landing- the room was dirty and small. Every morning we were awakened by the call to prayer before sunrise which seems to be next door. Their main sewage line had backed up so we had to sleep with the windows open the entire night to counter the stench of human waste in the entire building. We were there for 3 nights total- 3 nights of awful stay. We were never provided with shampoo or anything of the kind. Bathroom was terrible, couldnt use it without holding your breath had to shower with the door open so I didnt feel like I was showering in a port a potty. Forget sheet changes, we were however provided with fresh towels. The place is run down, badly managed, dirty and not hospitable. The owner met with us and offered a very standard cold apology. he also offered an extra nights stay but kinda pointless because we had tickets which is he is probably well aware of and the fact that we wouldnt have stayed in his crappy hotel another minute more than we had to. The hotel isnt on tripadvisor anymore thankfully but stay away. Its really really awful.

I enjoyed the location of this hotel, close to the airport bus drop off station, close to Taksim square, close to Maksim Metro Station and Bus central station. The room is spacious but very basis and rustic. I only had a fridge, kettle and some basic kitchen utensils available. You need to bring your own coffee, sugar, milk, etc. There was soap and shower gel available and the towels were changed every day. The room also had a flat screen TV with various channels, but not enough English. Breakfast was very basic with bread, cheese, processed meat slices, boiled eggs, jam, honey, etc. including coffee and tea. No variety was provided. The walls are thin as you can hear your neighbours. About 20 m away is a main street, with some shops and restaurants. This was useful and you can enjoy some local cuisine. The hotel staff was very friendly, Ali provided me with directions on using the public transport.

Good location. Good staff.poor breakfast.small rooms.air conditioner lifter for 5 floor building.Damp in rooms.Triple room changed to double room in last minute.only main thing was grate (staff so nice

This is the 5th time i come to turkey , i always take the same suit in three apples . Perfect hotel , excellent staff , and good price . I advice every traveller to come to three apples suit , and be sure that you will be well treated by the owner and staff

We spent five excellent days in Istanbul (May 2015) and thanks to “3 Apples” it went smoothly without any problems as we could have a real rest in that nice, quiet hotel after exhausting hiking throughout the city. Recommend!

I had booked Apartments with 3 Apples for two different dates through Expedia. 3Apples have 3 properties at 3 different locations in Istanbul. Management want all customers to check in at their HQ irrespective of property you have booked. This rule is never highlighted in their booking printout issued by Expedia. Nor 3 Apples bothered to inform us. During our first date of booking, we kept searching for property, Nobody around knew about it . Finally we could trace it. The Apartment did not bear any name of 3 Apples . The premises were locked and no representative to check in. Next date we could locate their HQ. Mr Bakulu was attending the desk. He did not show any visible regrets for hardship we faced , except a casual sorry. All the time he was blaming Expedia for this fiasco of ours . as if it was not managements' responsibility . Certainly an experience to be forgotten as early as possible. Property was ok for the price we paid. The cleanliness is less than desired as most of the utensils were left unwashed as kept by previous customers. towels were not replaced with fresh ones.

This is my second stay in 3 apples suites. I recommend to all my friends because of next factors: 1. Low cost; 2. friendly and helpful staff; 3. clean and quite rooms; 4. easy to upgrade; 5. convenient location and easy access to public transport. In 2013 we were staying in Elmadag. Pros: 1. Clean; 2. Quite; 3. Excellent staff. Cons: 1 Slightly far away from main center.

If you are looking for a mid range centrally located 'hotel', this is the place for you. It is nothing fancy, but staff were helpful and friendly at all times. The room was serviced every day and despite some reviews, noice levels were low. This is nothing fancy, but it was clean, and did not cost an arm and a leg like many of the other hotels in the area. I travel to Istanbul every other year, I will stay at 3 Apples again. To the gentelman (I think it was actually the owner) who carried my suitcase weighing 34 kg to the top floor suitte, thank you so much!

No cleaning services in this hotel. We stayed four nights..we had to ask for cleaning services and every time we ask for the services it was delayed and not done properly. We reserved two suites and the hotel provided one in the first floor and the second one on the fourth floor. The rooms were very smelly with prior smokers ... The neighborhood was very nasty and unhealthy.. The residence hotel is far from the lobby ...walking through the nasty neighborhood to complain at the lobby was terrible ... Staff were trying to charge us more and they hardly can understand ir speak English ..not recommended at all ..we made a big mistake and the rating "good" is just "wrong" rating

We booked over the internet and planed two weeks as the reviews were mixed, but we are happy with little, so we booked firstly one week only. The usual procedures, credit card details to secure the booking. Once we arrived at 6.30 pm, we checked into the place and were told to wait till someone was coming to help us with the suitcases. We waited 60 minutes, nothing, then a power cut just in that area of the three Apple Suites, the next door building had power, and the building behind us as well. " it's the first time, the receptionist assured us, so we went to Taksim square to get a bite and a drink, only 1 minute walk away. Very nice location. As we enjoyed the area time passed and we called if the power was back, at 1130 pm yes, we could check in now. Being on the fifth floor, with 3 suitcases was not ideal with a 90 cm wide staircase, but with brake in each floor we managed. Beautifully terrace and balcony. Had a good night sleep, breakfast next day, well, warm curled up cheese, warm curled up sausage, nothing to write home about, but coffee. Me tried not to go more than once a day down or up given that my wife had a walking disability. The city is beautiful and I would go back again, then we booked our second week, but asked to be moved down a few floors. 2nd floor seemed fine, the apartment, well no more balcony as advertised, a bed, the fridge was very iced up and the floor has never seen a bit of water, bathroom, oh my god, the shower cubical was full of black fungi and mould around all areas, but second floor...we had more power cuts again almost daily, specially during the World Cup games. When we checked our online banking, we noticed that the first time our booking fee was charged 3 days prior to arrival, in full, and on the same day charged again, with no explainable reason, as we went down to reception, with loads of difficulties we showed the very little English speaking guy that it had been charged twice, he was shaking his shoulders, and said I speak to my friend tomorrow, next day nothing, friend did not show. Accountant appeared on Tuesday with not one word English, and it seemed that the money was taken twice and put back once. So no explanation or sorry neither did we got refunded the banking charge of which the bank charged us for paying twice, neither an apology, they blamed our bank for paying twice...... Conclusion, yes I would go back to Istanbul, as very nice and clean, but not to 3 apple Suites which seemed very unorganised, but mainly very dirty and no effort in addressing matters of cleanliness despite calling the attention of the staff.
