Stayed in the old part of Istanbul-excellent location to all the sites(blue mosque, grand bazarre,etc) Rooms are small but adequate. the breakfast was good and the staff was helpful. I would recommend this hotel since it is small and located in the right area for touring. RW from New York area

Our trip to Istanbul was meant to be a romantic birthday getaway, so we were looking for a boutique 4-5 star hotel right in the old town. Faros Hotel is certainly central, and quite charming. But 4 star it is not. The rooms are clean and functional, although a little noisy from the street and the tram line which runs... More

We spent a full week at the Faros. The rooms look just like the photos; clean and even large for a European hotel with very tall windows giving the feel of a small balcony. The beds were comfortable. There is an elevator. The hotel is located close to the Blue Mosque, Haya Sofya, Grand Bazaar, the Cistern, Cemberlitas Hamam and... More

This hotel was suggested and booked by our travel agent. We had stayed at another hotel in the city, and we did not like the location or the attitude of the staff there. However, when we arrived at the Faros Hotel we were impressed. It is not glamorous, but is in a great location, close to transport, and within easy... More

This is a very good location in Instanbul. The staff is very kind, the room are modern, clean and vell furnished. As the hotel is located in the most touristical part of Istanbul some rooms may be noisy. This small hotel is definitively a very good place to stay a few days to discover Istanbul.

We have just returned from 4 nights at the Faros - after checking out the reviews on Tripadvisor. The reviews turned out to reflect our experience. The hotel is ideally placed for first time Istanbul visitors, within walking distance of many of the most popular sights. The tram service from 100m down the road is excellent and easy to use....

We spent six nights at the Faros Hotel from late December to early January, 2008. Our family had two suites and one double room for our stay. All three rooms were modern, very comfortably furnished and absolutley clean. They do look like the pictures. The suites are corner rooms on the first three floors. We had the ones on first... More

We stayed 4 nights last November. It's very well located, just two minutes walking from main atractions in Sulthanamet. The room was modern, clean and charming. It's surrounded of many restaurants and you have a tranv station in front of the hotel. We recomend Faros Hotel to everyone.

This is a nice modern hotel in the centre of Sultanahmet and ideally located for all the major tourist attractions that are just a few minutes walk away. You can get a taxi to the hotel from the airport for about £12. Quite a journey. About 50 mph, 5 feet from the back of the car in front. Almost as... More
