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

I had stayed around the Sultanahmet area on my previous visits. This time, I had to be around Taksim Square. Faros is a group that owns a couple of hotels and a restaurant in the Taksim vicinity. Faros guests get discounts at the restaurant, which is in the better (and more expensive) area, across the road from Grand Hyatt, InterContinental... More

Stayed here for three days in September 2014 while attending a nearby conference. Location is very convenient to Taksim, just a block's walk down a quiet street. Don't be put off by the street, which is a little shabby.. it's certainly more authentic than the Taksim tourist hotel cluster one block over. The room was perfectly clean and nice, the... More

We are a young couple in our 20s, and we took a long weekend trip to Istanbul. I was very happy with what we paid for. First of all, like many European tourist destinations, Istanbul is an expensive city to find accommodation in. If you are looking for a 4 or 5 star hotel, this is not the place. However,... More

I stayed at this hotel or should I say lodge for 3 nights i.e from 9th August to 12th August. It is situated near Taksim street and is by far the most ugliest hotel located there. We had booked 6 rooms. When we checked in for one room we had to wait for 45 minutes as the room was being... More
