Faros Hotel Taksim4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
It's a good place as long as you spend most your time out of the hotel. So much to do. Hotel room is best just to sleep in.
Clean, Nice staff, great location. Rooms are OK, nothing more - all works fine, but very small. If you take a room for 3 make sure you get a normal bed and not a bunk bed. All together if this is your budget go for it, if you can spend a little more do that.
We stayed for only one night before our early morning flight back home. We chose it for the proximity to the Havatas airport bus at Taksim Square, but the street it is on does not feel as safe and the adjacent buildings are not as nice as those a bit closer to the square. The reception and porter were very nice, though the reception/concierge kept trying to push dinner at a seafood restaurant under the Galata Bridge on us. The room was very clean, but the wall to the bathroom does not go all the way to the ceiling, and you can hear everything, so make sure you're comfortable with your roommate! Overall, it was perfectly fine for the price we paid.
