We loved our recent stay at Faik Pasha. Everything about the place was very positive. Our room was very clean, the breakfast was great, and the staff amazing. We did not feel like we were staying in a hotel but rather like we were guests in a home.

There is not enough time to discuss all the extra things that were done to make our stay amazingly wonderful. We travel a lot and often stay in five star hotels. I think the Ritz and Four Season chains could learn a lot from the Faik Pasha personnel. We certainly would stay here again and recommend this hotel to our friends.

Room Tip: The hotel is a historical building and has no elevator. If you have a problem climbing steps, pleas...

Dear Our Guest,

The time I read your comment was one of the happiest time in my life. Thank you very much,

During the last two years,I worked a lot to renovate these precious buildings without destroying their anciend Pera spirit and convert them to a home for our guest .

You wrote "We did not feel like we were staying in a hotel but rather like we were guests in a home"... This impression is just what I want to give our Faik Pasha Hotels visitors.

I am very pleased that our efforts are appreciated by our guests.

We would like to host you again soon,
Best ragards,

Staying in Faik Pashsa historical and friendly hotel you can enjoy the best mattress',
the warmest hospitality, the home made breakfast,H.D 42'' television.
The old renovated building gives you a really feeling like home.
A nice extra offer of a facial service by esthetic gave more pleasure .

Dear Constantin and Ioanna,
Thank you very much to your nice comments in Trip Advisor and your present (the book. of Kazancakis) which you gave me before you go.I red this wonderful book of Kazancakis and once again think that Turkish and Greek people are brothers and sısters and these two nation always should live in peace and friendship.
When I wrote your comment I thought that"THIS IS JUST I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO HEARING ABOUT MY HOTEL!" I am very happy that we gave the impression which we are trying to create.
I am very pleased to meet you and wish to see you and your friends in Faik Pasha Hotels again.
Best regards

Our family was fortunate enough to stay at this beautiful boutique hotel during the warm weather this past August. It was an oasis of artistic decoration whose air conditioned rooms were filled with antiques and lovely paintings of this magical city. The beds were comfortable with organic cotton sheets. We had a floor to ourselves with 2 bedrooms, sitting room and marble bathroom with a spa shower. Each morning, we came down to an extensive and professionally prepared buffet that included homemade preserves , cheeses, meats, fruits ,vegetables, breads ,omlettes,
as well as juice and cappuccino. We not only could not eat lunch, but for the first few days only managed some delicious fresh figs for dinner . The rooms also are fitted with mini bars, Nespresso and an assortment of teas. They were always available to provide advice for tourist activities and felt that our needs were most important, On the last night, our adult daughter and I
had facials and massages at the hotel hammam and spa by a highly skilled esthetician. It was a fabulous experience and took almost 5 hours to pamper both of us.
We have shared Faik Pasha with everyone one we know who want to know what Turkish hospitality is like. We can't wait to return to this oasis - an immaculate, safe, quiet and beautiful
"home "

Room Tip: All of the rooms are exquisite!

Dear Hilary ,

Thank you very much for taking time to share your experience at Faik Pasha Hotels.

I and my staff are very appreciated to your detailed and wonderful comments about our hotel.

Our premises are newly renovated historical monuments and we were very fortunate to have a family like you as a guest who could estimate how much effort have been spent to protect the ancient spirit of the Cite de Pera and to create a 5 star modern comfort .

The atmosphere should be cosy like a nest but also more comfortable than their home during the stay of our guests. I am very pleased to see that these intentions of mine are realised ; we met your expectations and you enjoyed your stay in our Faik Pasha Hotels.

We are looking forward to hosting you and your friens in Faik Pasha Hotels soon...

Best regards to you to Mr.Randall and to dear Sasha...

Av.Meral Kalav Demir.

We really enjoyed our stay here. A friend advised us to stay in Beyoglu instead of the old city and we were very glad we did. Faik Pashsa is on a quiet street, but a short walk to great restaurants and nightlife. (A stroll down Istikal Cad at night is a must!)

Staff at the hotel were very helpful - they suggested a great Bosphorus sunset cruise and helped us organize travel to the next stop on our trip.

The room itself was fairly small, but very nice and the bed was comfortable. This is a great place to stay!

I found this hotel through tripadvisor and did my booking via booking.com. as part of my annual "be a tourist in Istanbul "program this time ı decided to spend my weekend there. I think it is a hidden jewel in Istanbul . The place is very tastefully decorated , the staff is extremely helpful and the owner of thehotel who used to be a lawyer makes the place unforgettable. The Turkish hammam is wonderful. Location is very convenent since you can reach Old City by a cab very easily and Beyoglu is just next to it. The hotel is a neighbour of the museum "Museum of Innocence".Since then I recommend this place to our business guests as well.

Room Tip: executive suitis great
