The staff at the hotel were the best I have come across from the many world class hotels I have had the privilege in staying at; they bent over backwards to make my and my wife's stay as comfortable as possible. The staff spoke excellent english and the room was beautiful with a good view. The location is second to none. I will definately return to Istanbul and stay at Hotel Faros.
Hotel perfectly situated for visiting attractions. Staff freindly and helpful. Room was spacious and kept very clean. Food was excellent (compliments to the chef ) Would most definately return to this hotel if I was ever to return to Istanbul.
Be aware of the complimentary tray in your room. The peanuts and crisps are not complimentary, but we did not realise this until our last day, when a price list appeared and it is expensive. Quite noisy at front facing rooms, but this did not bother us as it was good watching all the goings on.Most of the bar staff were not up to hotel standard and lacked experience and seemed lazy.
Staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. Nice modern rooms. Very clean.
