Score from 326 reviews Very good
Well placed for walking to the major sites, especially for late night or early morning walks. On tram route for easy access to other parts of town. Lovely staff, very welcoming, helpful and friendly.
A little lively as on a busy street but noise stopped before midnight.
The location, breakfast and food ingeneral
no lobby to sit
The hotel is situated a short walk to the shopping mecca and grand bazaars, and in the opposite direction you have within three minutes walk the Blue Mosque and Sophia mosques. Wonderful street food, cute restaurants and friendly people.
the hotel situation is excellent. 100 m from tram station, shops, restaurants, bars, monuments... everything is very close.
The receptionist was extremely rude when he asked me to free the room. it was 12:15 when I came back to the hotel to check out. I asked him for 10 minutes to bring our 2 bags... his answer was extremely rude (he was on the phone while talking to me btw). I have 7 years intensive experience in hotel industry worldwide, and I assure you this was the worst answer I ever had.
Perfect location and perfect for a city like Istanbul. Loved it. Will stay here again.
Good breakfast, very kind personal, good location: near Grand Bazar (10 min. by walk), near important objectifs (historical monuments).
No parking; the cost to nearby parking is high: 15 Eur/day and unsafe.
The whole experience here was excellent. Helpful friendly staff, especially "Erkut" on reception. Good food both breakfast & dinner in restaurant. Great location & we were lucky to get a spacious room with balcony. Steve & Diane, NZ
It was way less then we expected..
The room was supposed to be a delux But it was just a normal room. We paid a lot more to get a couple of sq inches if extra space.
We stayed in a room on the roof of this hotel for four nights. We enjoyed the different experience this gave us compared to staying in a normal room. The lift went to level 4 and you take a spiral staircase to the roof. The weather was mid 20's with no rain so it worked out well. Had good views from the roof top. An excellent location for transport, restaurants and walking to tourist sites.
Close to hostorical places
Staff are roud bad services bad food and very expensive i dont recomend it to families becareful families dont go there verrrrrry bad !!!!
The location, rooms space and friendly staff
The hotel entrance is very narrow and small front desk
Excellent location, and staff in general. Zulkuf was exceptionally helpful!
One person at the desk named Erkut; very unprofessional
I was at faros for the 4th time and obviously I love the hotel! The location is fantastic, and the staff mostky are very helpful! Zulkuf deserves a special mention as far as the staff; professional, helpful, and polite!
One person at the desk named Erkut made me feel like I was bothering him if I had any question! He does not smile, and made me feel unwelcome! He should learn a bit of Customer Service for all the guests, let alone me staying with two rooms, for three nights, and for the 4th time at Faros since 2007.
Location is really good. Personal very kind Good relation price-quality
Breakfast a bit poor...
The staff particularly the managers Husnu and Zulkuf, were very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. I was impressed with the hospitality I received. The staff went out of the way to keep my 2-yr-old entertained and happy. Well done, Faros! Rahij Anwar London
Location is just amazing, very close to SultanAhmet satation where you can find many attractions around in beautiful surroundings. You can use the tram to go to the other Side (Eminuno, Kabatas). I stayed for 3 days and then spent to days in Istiqlal and I regretted moving from that nicely located Hotel. Breakfast is good, People at the reception were very friendly.
Nothing worth mentioning. Maybe the mpost annoying thing was that there's no blackout in the room, but still not a big issue.
V goog especially room 402 with balcony
Loved the location, it was so easy to walk to many places from this position. The room was just what we needed, the staff were friendly and we will definitely stay there again next time we go
There was nothing that disappointed us.
My stay at faros hotel was amazing. I was so happy with the location as it was just a walking distance to all the major sights in istanbul. The rooms were really nice. Beds were very comfortable. . I have to mention that i m cabin crew. I travel the world and stay in 4 and 5 stars hotels and this hotel is one of my favourites as it had such a warm and welcoming feeling. The staff were all so nice and extremely helpful !A big thanks to ertuk, zulkuf , serhat and touran. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who s going on vacation to istanbul !
A great place to stay in Istanbul! Truly in the center and on a main street with the tramway passing in front of the hotel. Main attractions at a few minutes walk. The staff was truly helpful and friendly. We particularly appreciated the attention of M. Mahmut Keser and of Zulkuf. We loved the included breakfast and were quite satisfied with the food during the day.
Although a detail considering the pluses, the installation themselves were somewhat old.
Really comfortable rooms and great location. And I really like the breakfast.
absolutely great location in the heart of instabul. We walked to nearly all the main attractions. Staff were great hotel was clean and comfortable we had a fabulous time
more variety for breakfast
some staff don't speak English ,,,,
One of the Staff was helpfull and they give a free of charge Drive to the airport to make it up for us after shouting in our face.
We stayed 5 years back in this hotel and it was very good and unfortuantly we came back to stay again. The room was very very dirty and the staff was rude and I can say the hotel worth Zero Rate not more. The wifi didnt work and when we told them they said go down to the lobby??!! They bring a very dirty kid bed for my daughter and we didnt let her sleep in it, and finally they shout on our face becuase we want to get a leave at 2 pm instead of 12 pm (Although we get their confirmation one night befre we leave). To make the long story short dont book in this hotel.
Family room had ample room for three adults sleeping separately. Especially liked the curtain that could divide room in half. Nice buffet breakfast. Major attractions within walking distance.
Too cold to sit outside so sometimes breakfast room seemed crowded.
