The hotel had a good location (next to Taksim square). The shower was very big and the staff were very friendly and helpful. However, I was slightly annoyed that we got two twin beds pushed together instead of the double deluxe bed we had paid for. It made sleeping so uncomfortable as my boyfriend and I kept slipping into the... More

The hotel has a great location, right next to Taksim Square. The service from the staff was very good, and they were very accommodating throughout our stay. The Wifi had a tendency to drop occasionally, but overall it's an excellent hotel.

We experienced good services and friendly attitude of all staff. It is a convenient hotel close to center. Clean in an adequate level with sympathetic rooms. We stayed for 4 days and cost was quite acceptable.

Location is quite close to taksim square, walking distance of about 300 to 400 m from the metro station. Front desk manager was really very co-operative guided as quite well about the surrounding. Room was quite small but clean. Breakfast was OK menu repetitive.

I stayed here on two recent stays in Istanbul. The hotel is well located next to Taksim Square and is a nice hotel with a good restaurant. Unfortunately, the service was lacking. I was guaranteed same day laundry service and after noticing my clothing was still sitting behind the front desk 6 hours later, I had to insist that the... More

Faros is a really nice hotel in the center of Istanbul. It is 2 minutes from Taksim square and therefore the perfect location to explore Istanbul. The breakfast was delicious and the staff is extremly friendly and helpful. If I am going to visit Istanbul next year, I will check in here again.
