It was a comfortable hotel, the beds where very comfy and our room had amazing views of the city. The breakfast was ok, and the staff was really amazing - they helped us with the transfer to the airport, and also with information about the city. Recommended 100%

Had booked a superior double room at the Faros Hotel in Istanbul online prior to my visit. Online the rooms look very adequate and spacious. The hotel wasn't easy to find but close to where we were dropped off from the airport, since we took the airport shuttle. It's about 5 mins walk from the restaurant with the same name.... More

I am a little late with this review. My husband and I went on our honeymoon to Istanbul back in 2013 of December. We were a little scared about Faros initially as it was a hotel we booked online through hotwire. When we first got to Istanbul it looked a little unsafe as you have to go through narrow streets....

My second visit; this time for dinner. Had meatballs that they served with potato chips (fries to most of us) and grilled veggies. My companions had chicken quesadilla, sea bass and pizza, which one I forgot to ask but we enjoyed all of them. The fresh peach ice tea was refreshing. You can also choose a host of other flavors...

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.
