    The staff was very good and the location is good...

    The bathroom with glass sides!!!. There is no privecy..That,s why I changed the hotel after three days!

  • Group of friends

    The location was great - within walking distance of most major attractions and right on the tram line. The rooms were clean, beds cofortable and great airconditioning! The breakfast buffet was nice and the restaurant food was great! The staff was friendly and very helpful with directions and suggesting the best of things to do and shops to go to.

    The rooms have a frosted glass shower and toilet enclosure which is situated at one end of the room and offers little or no privacy if you are sharing a room.

    The hotel is very clean with a large room in a great location. The restaurant in the hotel is excellent and staff are very helpful. The restaurant has a modern decoration with excelent music and everybody feels good to stay there.

    The toillet in corner of room it´s not confortable due doesn´t close totally, and it´s a problem when we are more than one. No problem with shower but toillet really need to be managed.

    The staff were very friendly and helpful. The buffet breakfast was great. The hotel location is perfect for seeing the sites in Sultanahmet.

    The only thing we didn't like was the bathroom situation. We booked the room for three adults, my boyfriend and his best friend. When we got there, we noticed that the bathroom is divided into two parts, the toilet area and the shower area. Both areas are surrounded by a "wall" of thin barely frosted glass. The glass is extremely see through. Obviously, this would not work for our situation, so the best friend checked into another hotel. Even with my boyfriend and me, the situation was uncomfortable. We had to take turns going down to breakfast, so that one of us could have some alone time with the bathroom. If that doesn't bother you, then this is a great hotel.

    This hotel has an excellent location, close to the hagia sofia and topkapi palace. The staff were friendly, multilingual and very efficient in their work. The restaurant, starting with their large "included" breakfast, was very good. Service was prompt and courteous, staff always good-humored and helpful. .Rooms have recently been renovated and are bright and functional with scandinavian style. We'll highly recommend the faros hotel sirkeci to all of our travelling friends!
