By far, Faros is located on the best location a tourist can ask in Istanbul. Close to all attraction, restaurant and Tram station. Whole city is just a few mins walk or a tram ride away. Rooms are small but very practical and clean. Service varies from best to worst. breakfast was forgettable but they were very kind to prepare... More

Very nice hotel. Clean and nice rooms. Very good breakfast. The hotel also serves lunch and dinner as it also works as a restaurant with big and tasty plates. The most important thing is that you are 5' walking from the old town and Hagia Sophia, Topkapi, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazzar and 2' away is the tram station which can... More

Its only a small hotel but has very friendly staff who are always happy to give, supply, arrange, book or recommend all things connected with Istanbul. The rooms are only small but clean, well appointed and adequate.... More

A very good place to stay - close to all the attractions - the tram stop just a few meters away which makes getting to other attractions such as the spice market, the ferries and the Grand Bazaar so easy - Also very safe place to stay. The only issue I had was that I asked for a double bed... More

Mr. Serhat greeted us warmly and gave us many tips for seeing the highlights of Istanbul in our one day. He went over and above in his help to us since our... More

We stayed at the Faros Hotel for a 5 day trip to Istanbul. At first we thought it wasn’t very impressive due to the counter being very unusual however we were surprised to the level of service we received once we stayed the first night. Room service was amazing, housekeeping would clean our room every day without fail, the facilities... More
