Wonderful group holiday

The Faros city hotel was a ver good hotel for the price we paid. I took 15 people to stay at this hotel. The room are clean and tidy, the bathroom could be better, the ceramic hand basins have cracks, one of our members had an accident while washing his hands, the basin fell through, he had cuts to his hand and feet, please be careful while using it. Apart from that the staffs were very helpful and friendly, the breakfast was wonderful , the location was great, this hotel is central to all the monuments and bazaars. I would go and stay there again without any hesitation and would recommend it anyone.

Good value great location, no frills

This hotel offered good value for money and a very good location for visiting the Old City in Istanbul. We got an upgrade to a suite, but I would consider this to be just an average room. I did not see the standard rooms. There are no normal facilities such as a reception area, residence lounge etc. However a good value restaurant, offering a variety of good quality European style food, is within the hotel. I would recommend this hotel for a 2 or 3 day budget stay, but no more. Restaurant staff were very nice. Tram ran by the front door, under our room, but was not a noise problem and very convenient.

Awesome honeymoon

My husband and I had a lovely first holiday. The hotel was very nice, staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The breakfast buffet had a lot of choices and the 15 meal discount was worth it.The food was very nice. The room was nice spacious and it was cleaned daily. The tram, metro, grand bazar all were walking distance. The amazing blue Mosque was few minutes away. The only downfall was one of the staff recommended booking few deals like princess island and Green Busra through a company, where due to bad weather we didn't get to see what we paid for :-( We still managed to have a lovely time. thank you

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

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
