Its a second time I stayed there and I got an upgrade to a suit on the top floor. It was just perfect. You cant get this quality for that price anywhere. Stuff is very nice and very helpful. 2 min walk from Taksim Sq.

Pros: The hotel gives great bang for your buck. The staff are exceptionally helpful, the hotel is located minutes from the subway (metro), as well as the main shopping strip in Taksim. The rooms are typically small (no different than most hotels in Europe), but have modern interiors and are clean and comfortable. Breakfast is very good. Cons: Call to... More

Faros hotel is located in Taksim, a nice neighbourhood from which to discover Istanbul. Good options of transport, restaurants and bars around make this place even a better choice. The attention at the reception was really good and the hotel picked us up at the airport without extra charge. Despite the opaque glass door of the bathroom, something odd but... More

i was there for 3 nights... 3 happy nights... our room was amazing... clean, modern and quite with a nice balcony and a great city view. The staff were really helpful and friendly. All we needed was a 5 minutes walk to reach Taksim and Estiklal street.

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.
