HASAN AND HASAN
I agree with all the reviews that lead me to stay here !
-The staff goes out of their way... without getting in your way.
-They excel at what they set out to do by keeping it simple.
-They kept us well rested, well fed, recharged & informed to go out and explore Istanbul.. which is the whole point, right?

Special thanks to HASAN. His advice on Istanbul made the difference.

Tips:
*Their sister restaurants: Faros dine and wine is fantastic.
*HASAN is bright, savvy and in the know. Talk to him . He is very friendly and will point you in the right direction.
* For night life Best Clup ask Hasan

We stayed at Faros for 7 days including over the Easter weekend. Had a great time, great location (away from the most touristy parts of Istanbul) so you can feel a little bit more relaxed. Hasan and the gang were great, they are so relaxed and just get the job done!
Would recommend this hotel for anyone who is visiting Istanbul, especially if you are there for a few days!
Keep it up guys!

Perfect stay on every level. Also, dine at the Faros restaurants, particulary Faros Kebab. Excellent.

The hotel is situated close to Taksim square, 2 minutes walk only. the hotel is clean and the staff is friendly, well informed and helpful with tours and places to visit. If you want to know how to go to any place in Istanbul, just ask Hasan. If you are going to stay in Taksim area, Faros is an excellent choice.

We have spent a full week in this hotel (mixed between business and tourism).
Its just 2 minutes off Taksim square, ideal to be close and quiet at the same time.
The rooms are perhaps smaller than in other cities, in hotels of same kind, but they are nicely designed ("loft feeling"), impeccably clean with very comfortable beds and nice marble bathroom.
Breakfast is excellent in quality and quantity for Turkish or continental tastes alike.
The staff is friendly and helpful (gave me travel card for my stay for example) and also tempting to resolve impossible problems like : everybody can connect to internet (including my smartphone) except my laptop..
Given the way my room was set up, I think it is also possible to share two rooms with one main entrance.
Isolation of noise (outside and rooms around ) is perfect

Istanbul was an incredible experience of its own, let alone Faros Hotel's newest branch next to the center of the city in Taksim square. It was a very clean, design boutique hotel and the pictures you see on booking.com don't give it credit it deserves.The staff was extremely friendly, very helpful with tours and lead us to the best restaurants in town!
This goes out to Hasan, Emre, Umit & Ahmet!!! Thumbs up guys!!! Hope to see you again on our next trip to Istanbul! xxx
