5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

The hotel is in an excellent location,not far away from taksim square, nor from any other site. the rooms are clean and you find everything you need .Nicely decoratet with a good taste and most important no carpets in the rooms. Breakfast has all different varieties of food. The staff is sweet and very helpful in all ways. The internet was working all the time. I will come
again....INSHALLAH....thanks for a great service

Room Tip: Rooms to the front of the hotel are probaly quieter

We stayed three nights in this clean, ultra modern hotel. The staff members are friendly and helpful, and it is close to public transportation. The breakfast was extensive and delicious. I highly recommend this place.

The hotel is perfectly located, just of the Taksim Sq. and 2 min from Takism Metro station. Its a great looking small boutique hotel. Rooms are really good, perfectly organized. you will find there all you need, robe, soap, fresh bedding etc, its very clean, very nice décor. everything is working there. Staff is very nice and they all speak English. You feel very welcome. I stayed in many hotels in Istanbul and this one is really my favourite. The price is amazing. Breakfast is really good. I can safely recommended this super cute boutique hotel.

A friend and I spent four nights in this lovely, unique, and well-located hotel in Istanbul. Faros hotel is just a five minute walk from Taksim Square (ten minutes from Istikilal) but situated on a side street that doesn't feel like a tourist circus. The rooms are stylish and clean, with comfortable beds and especially nice bathrooms. We had a room to the back which was very quiet but still had a great view. The lobby and common areas are well-designed, wireless internet is included and the included breakfast is delicious. Best of all was the warm, personal service. The staff answered all of our questions and was always there to make sure we had everything we needed. After I idiotically left one of my bags on the airport bus, they helped me quickly find it-- calling the bus line and sending a staff member out to the office to pick it up. Murat and Neda are the best!! They will make you feel comfortable and welcome from the first minute to the last. This was my fourth trip to Istanbul and now I've found my favorite hotel (it's also a great value). I'll never stay anywhere else!

Room Tip: Rooms on high floors to the back are quiet with nice views.

We had a very pleasant stay in Faros Hotel, which was made memorable by their ever helpful, smiling, cooperative staff who would go all out to attend to your smallest need. their location is excellent next to the Geity Park, Taksim square and Grand BAZAR. Very clean, modern hotel. Food is excellent.
