A very nice hotel close to Taksim square. The staff was very friendly and helpful Isa, Ridvan and the very special Hassan. The room was clean, cozy and comfortable for us. Wifi was good also and so do the breakfast. If you're looking for goof price hotel and close to Taksim squar, Faros hotel would be the right choice.

Very helpful and cooperative staff including Isa and Ridvan. They guide you into finding good sites to visit and if you need to reserve, they will assist you. The room is a bit small but clean. It also provides a good breakfast.

The hotel's exterior isn't exactly top notch, but the place is a very short walk to Taksim square, which to me is essential. As for the room, yes it's small, but it's very nicely designed in that you don't feel it as cramped. Bright, clean, and neat, what more could you ask? Breakfast was good, and more important, there are... More

Hardly any place to move, too small table to work. Breakfast was just basic. Very few options. Plus hardly anything for vegetarians. Staff was helpful. Will stay here again if... More

At first, I wasn't impressed with the outside look of the building and the room size since online pictures were different but the kindness and politeness of the hotel staff made it worth it. They did their best to make our stay pleasant. Thanks to Murat, Halil, Ridvan, Hussein and Zahir.

This is a clean hotel near to Taksim Square. It is not fancy. The rooms are smaller than they seem online. The staff was friendly and helpful with all our travel needs. Breakfast is okay - again, nothing fancy. I would stay there again but not the wife. I give it 3 dots as it is okay/average.
