                    The Hotel staff, especially those working at the reception and at the restaurant, are very friendly and helpful; they go out of their way to ensure that you have a pleasant stay at the hotel.

                    Housekeeping would replenish supplies, such as soaps, shower gels, coffee, tea, etc, only when specifically asked to do so. We don't like being in a position to have to request for things that ought to be done suo-moto by housekeeping; but, finally we had to specially instruct housekeeping to do so; this was avoidable.

                    The only good thing is friendly staff and the breakfast buffet. أفضل شي في الفندق: الموظفين متعاونين وطيبين لكن ممكن تحصل على ذلك في معظم فنادق المنطقة. الافطار جيد وليس بممتاز.

                    It is not a hotel; it’s kind of hostel; as it is small and tight. No proper reception desk; a table and chair only. One left in all the building. Very very expensive comparing to rooms provided. I don' recommend the hotel for families. Can find better hotels around the area with less price. Be careful from price cheating; it shows in Booked.net less ten times from other sites and you expect that you win; no you loose comparing to other hotels in the area. لا اعتبره فندقا بقدر ما اعتبره هوستل يعني سكن للطلبة محدودي الدخل. لا يوجد مكتب استقبال يوحي بأنه فندق جيد، مجرد طاولة وكرسي. يوجد مصعد واحد فقط في المبنى. سعر الغرفة مرتفع جدا مقارنة بالغرفة التي حصلت عليها. لا أنصح العائلات بالسكن به. بالامكان الحصول على افضل الفنادق في نفس المنطقة وبسعر اقل. كن على حذر من الغش في مواقع الانترنت: ممكن أن تجد سعر الغرفة يقل بعشرة أضعاف بين موقع وآخر، وتظن أنك ستظفر بسعر جيد، لا ستكون أنت الخسران. قارن الأسعار بين الفنادق وليس بين مواقع الانترنت.

                    We loved the warm welcome, the situation near Taksim, the very comfortable bed, the simple & functional bedroom. The breakfast was lovely, the design of this new hotel is raw and beautiful! The guys downstairs are very very friendly, always ready to help for whatever request you may have... We were VERY satisfied!!

                    The street was a bit dodgy but we didn't really mind... Still, 2min walk to Taksim! Some people have said here before that the rooms were very noisy and that you could hear everything from the outside... I guess we were lucky because we didn't!

                    We had a wonderful stay at Faros. Everyone was welcoming with much information. The staff was helpful, kind and very attentive. The location was great and the noise level was minimal. When we go back to Istanbul we would definitely stay at Faros! Thanks for everything.....

                    Most of the hotel staff can speak English but all are very friendly and cooperative especially Mr Hassan and Mr Iimit both are very very helpful and excellent

                    Rooms for triple are ok in size but for the double bed are too small and the one facing the main road are too noisy and the rooms at the back in which I stayed for one night are very stuffy and ceiling is too low if you raise your hands you can touch the ceiling, the toilets and the bath rooms are not suitable for us as the non locking semi transparent glass doors does not meet our tradition and privacy regarding the next ?? Would you recommend Faros Hotel Taksim to other travelers? l can say yes and no YES for the Hotel staff, Services, Cleanliness of our rooms but NO for the reasons I stated over here

                    My husband and I stayed in Faros Hotel Taksim for 4 nights in Feb 2012 and enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It is within a walking distance to famous Taksim Square and Istiklal Street. This hotel is also spotlessly clean and kind of design. However, I believe the strongest advantage of this hotel which has earned its good reputation and favorable comments is its wonderful staff, especially the nice guys at the reception, Caglar and Hassan. The hotel management should be thankful to these two guys and their friendly attitudes towards the hotel guests.

                    The only weak point that I can mention is the noise from inside the building specially the slam of the doors in the mornings. However, I learned the management is already aware of this problem and is going to solve it very soon.

                    Good hotel, stylish in a simple way, and great staff. Immediate surrounding a bit ugly but Taksim's nice area is 1 minute walking.

                    Very noisy due to poor flooring material (raw concrete with plastic paint) and doors with lock problems: all guests had to bang their door to close it! Management is aware of this and ensured me they will address these problems (February 2012)

                    Faros is a gem. Excellent location (a liitle drab surroundings but only 5 min from Taksim/Istiklal), very nice room (relatively spacious, clean, very nice bathroom, free and fast WiFi, complimentary tea/coffee), very good breakfast, friendly and very helpful staff. Very good value for money. I would certainly visit again.

                    As everywhere in Istanbul filter coffee is very hard to find - you should do something about it.
