This little hotel was amazing. From arrival to departure. They arranged everything for us. Free Airport transfers! Wifi is excellent. Food was great and the location cant be beaten. We basically walked everywhere from our hotel. Great restaurants all around and great references by the staff. We highly recommend this gem.

Faros Hotel Taksim is well located near Taksim. What stands out with the hotel, compared to other hotels in Istanbul, is the unusually service minded staff. The rooms are ok, especially the suite with a terrace - which is a really good value for money, like the hotel in general. The weakest point is the fairly poor breakfast, at least... More

I spent 4 nights at Faros. We booked an standard room and the toillete has a non-stop leaking. We called the reception and inform them - they said would fix on the next day! After an all day tour we come back and still leaking. Called again and they change us to a Suite. The best points: the location its... More

I would like to give a good review of Faros Hotel, as our stay was relatively decent but service after the stay has really let it down. Hotel staff managed to get us into a quieter room and were generally helpful. Breakfast was decent for the price and hotel is in a good location near Taksim main hotel area. My... More

The atmosphere is warm, great interior and friendly staff. Rooms are clean and the standard room is large enough for 2 adults with lots of baggage. The greatest is the location. Its in 3 minutes walk from Taksim Square and its far enough from noise to bother you at night. I've stayed there for three nights and recommend it 100%

The rooms are modern and stylish but they are also itty bitty. You will be stepping over your luggage. But! it's just a few blocks from Taksim Square and the airport bus shuttle stop and it's a great value to boot so you won't mind it too much. The best part about the hotel is the front desk staff.

Nicely designed hotel that is convenient to Taksim and restaurants/shops on Istiklal. I stayed here for about a week. The room was small, but quite comfortable for one person. I appreciated the in-room mini-fridge, water kettle, and hairdryer. The wi-fi worked pretty well. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was ok for a hotel of this size. Service was... More
