Perfect Place To Explore Istanbul

We had a long layover in Istanbul, so decided to leave the airport and spend the night and morning in the city. The hotel is a 2 minute walk from the tram station and less than ten minutes from all the major sites (Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, etc.) We arrived at the hotel late at night and the staff were very friendly and quick in getting us into our room. They upgraded us to a corner suite free of charge, as well. The room was large and clean and nicely decorated. There was also a tub, which is a big bonus. The view was great; we could see what was going on on the street below while eating our dinner. The breakfast buffet was varied, but not anything over-the-top. The only complaints I have is that the bed was not terribly comfortable, but it didn't matter for one night, and the wifi was not very fast. I would definitely stay here again!

My Experience in Faros Hotel

We had a very good experience in this hotel. At the beginning we thought it was not what we expect. it is a small hotel, reception very simple, But after staying there we found it was the best place to stay in Istanbul

BEST LOCATION POSIBLE

Come on! it´s imposible to get any closer! If location it`s what you want, this hotel its for you! If you bother with noise, and proably want a hotel for its numerous amenities you should sacrifice the location. But this hotel probably was one of the highlights of my trip, hope you stay here if plan to get to know istambul in your stay.

strictly okay, great location but old

the hotel is strictly okay. its location is awesome coz you can walk it everywhere from there and the tram stops right outside. the room was old even thought it was apparently a "suite", and the bed was quite uncomfortable. they kept it clean though which was nice, but i couldn't see myself living there more than 2 nights. i guess most hotels in that neighborhood are old and tiny like this one so there isn't much choice

City Break success

Excellent service and assistance from all staff involved. Breakfast buffet very good indeed. Location is first class for visitng the major sights on foot. The relatively small number of rooms means that reception staff are able to give you maximum attention when required.

great couple getaway

Problems with the safe but sorted right away Duva not wide enough but sorted next day by giving us another duva Breakfast was good but the same every day but a big choice. Very close for all the main site's. Good for all the main museum and the blue mosque Went to Prince Island well worth the day out a place with no cars only horse and trap plus bikes 6 tl return 60 tl for a good hour on the horse and trap can take 4 persons The Bazar 5 min walk from hotel Trams out side the hotel good way to get around 3 tl does not matter how far you travel Went to the Asia side shopping cheaper there Went to the 4 largest shopping center in europe

Great location , very helpful& friendly staff . Full Value for Money

Pleasantly surprised at the experience in this small hotel located right in the centre of all action on Sultanahmet. Our room a Terrace Room 404 may have no view but was a very quiet place at the back of the road . The breakfast offering was top class & all staff were very helpful& accommodating . We are going to stay here in our future visits to this exciting city

Vacation getaway

The hotel was in a very good location and close to the main attractions. The breakfast could have more varies, it was the same thing very day. The cab that I took to the hotel dropped me at the top of the street and told me the hotel is down the street. I refused to get out and the cab to me closer which was across the street. The street car runs along the main street but the driver did not explain that to me. This is my first time and pulling my luggage to the hotel was no fun. The hotel transportation was not at the airport.
