This is our first trip to Istanbul and we couldn't be happier with our hotel choice. The Sofa Hotel is a boutique hotel in a fabulous and chic district of Nisantasi. From the moment you step into the hotel, the sweet aroma welcomes you into this tranquil and charming hotel. The staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. Sad ullage is... More

This is an excellent hotel with in a great Location. A modern funky hotel that offers good size rooms, great restaurant, great spa and a perfect location for a longer stay. Pros: Great Location.

We just checked out from istanbul today, everything was absolutely great! The location is perfect. It lies in the very chic district of Nisantasi. An amazing mall 'City's' is just across the street, along with a selection of cafés and restaurants. The neighborhood is very safe and very clean. The hotel had a very convenient breakfast buffet, not perfect but... More

I had to check in to this hotel under most unexpected circumstances. My daughter had a serious allergy attack when we were visiting Istanbul and we had to rush to a nearby hospital's emergency. It was 3:30am when she was released, tired with an urgent need for comfort and sleep. We found ourselves at their reception and were immediately ushered... More

Stayed here 25/30 times. Good location, away from the tourist hell that is Sultanamet but lively surroundings in an affluent area. The staff appear aloof but they are actually very helpful. The Hotel appears to want to emulate the 'LA in the 90's' style but fortunately, if that was their intention, they fail splendidly. Food is very Western and disappointing... More

The Sofa Hotel is new hotel with a complete Spa in a cool shopping neighborhood. The style is trendy modern, the rooms are great (large), the spa and exercise facilities are well equipped and the staff supportive.

This hotel is situated amidst designer shops and it looks quite fancy as well. Big rooms, good beds, a deluxe bathroom and nice decoration. In the end it's the experience that counts and that hasn't been positive. Some hotel policies and the service of the staff are not what you expect in a hotel in this price-range. Check in is... More
