Had a wonderful time staying here with my cousin. The staff were so friendly and welcoming - especially Murat and Kenan - and they really took care of us while we were there. The rooms were very clean, the lounge area welcoming, we were given lots of tea, beautiful breakfasts and plenty of advice and tips. Definitely recommend it!

I stayed here with my cousin for 4 nights. The staff were so friendly and helpful throughout our stay - nothing was too much trouble. It made such a difference. They showed us where to go, organised a night at a fish restaurant and went out of their way to help with our bags, and anything we needed! I would... More

The room was clean and bed was the best we had in our one week stay in Turkey. The linen was soft, fresh and smooth. Staff was friendly and helpful even though we were checking in late at 11pm. Breakfast was slightly below average; inadequate selection of hot food and tasteless bread being our main grouse. The design of the... More

I was very surprised by this hotel based on the cheap rate sourced yet for the price the quality was outstanding. Large and modern room had a very boutique hotel feel. The room was very clean and well appointed. The location is very central to Taksim but at the same time, the street becomes a little desolate late at night.... More

I almost didn't stay here because I breezed past the Christmas tree picture above for this hotel's listing. Not sure what is up with Trip Advisor but this clearly doesn't give the correct impression of the hotel. Service was excellent, the location was excellent. Free wifi, free coffee, free breakfast makes the deal better. Rates were great. I enjoyed the... More

Perfect choice of hotel & location for a short stay in Istanbul. The rooms are comfortable, contemporary and compact, but all you need for a city break. They have made the best use of the space available. The breakfast buffet provided is plentiful. The hotel is in a good location and a short walk from Taksim square, restaurants, shops and... More

No need for many words as if I commented on all the amazing service and things I loved about Faros I'd be here all day. As soon as I stepped foot into Faros I knew it was the hotel for me. From its funky, modern décor to the friendly plump "perfectly English speaking" reception guy. I asked for a room... More
