The Faros Hotel, Taksim was the perfect home for us while we visited Istanbul for one week. Located near dozens of restaurants and 2 blocks from the Metro, we had easy access to dining and low-cost transportation allowing us to visit a multitude of historic sites and must-see spots in the city. The staff at the Faros were super helpful... More

Best looking hotel out of all the hotels I stayed in Turkey. Such a great value for this boutique hotel. They were so nice and helpful in all of our questions and concerns. We were also late in checking out but they didn't even mention it when we checked out although they had a warning against checking out late on... More

This hotel is only 5-7 mins walk from the Taksim Square and this is the only good thing about the hotel. Our room light fittings didn't work. On the first night, suddenly at 12 midnight, airconditioner conks off for no reason. Although the manager said they can change the room, it was too late, we were too tired and all... More

Just off the square from the Taksim Metro station, the hotel has fantastic modern decor and friendly staff waiting to greet you. A stylish cafe in the lobby, WiFi throughout the hotel and a brilliant location to start discovering Istanbul. The room was exactly what I needed to escape from the buzz of the city, but also the beat spot... More

Group of friends were traveling and chose to stay at this hotel for 3 nights (2 rooms). The rooms were clean, roomy. It was close to Taksim Metro station and near Taksim Square, and Istiklal Cd. The manager was kind and very helpful. Free breakfast was fresh, with much variety and good included Turkish tea. Definitely staying here again.

The staff are very friendly and ready to help. We arrived at 7:00 a.m. and they generously gave us the room. This helped us a lot to get a rest before visiting the city. The location is very convenient and is a 2 to 3 minutes walk from Taksim square. The room was very clean, however a little bit small.... More

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

Beautiful and quiet hotel, greatly located by Taksim square at a very reasonable price. Very welcoming service by all staff members. The rooms were very clean and including daily bottles of water, tea and coffee. The bathroom was also very clean and included a really big shower. Breakfast was complete and delicious, including some traditional tea and coffee. The hotel... More

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighborhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
