Safety Alert For Unaccompanied Female Travelers

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 28, 2009

The Faros Hotel is conveniently located on the Tram line and directly across from central attractions such as the Blue Mosque. The staff of the Faros are friendly and attentive with ready advice on local attractions and dinner recommendations. Females traveling without male escort should take care when travelling to Turkey; a tour group might be more enjoyable. Additionally, while staying at the Faros, someone attempted to gain access to our room in the middle of the night: whether staff or management we know not. Luckily, the chain was on, but unaccompanied female travelers are little more than prey in Istanbul and unfortunately, this extended into the hotel as well. Women beware.

Unique Quality: Conveniently located on the Tram line and directly across from central attractions such as the Blue Mosque.

Directions: Sultanahmet
