Credit granted, the location is just ideal should the whole purpose of your visit to Istanbul be shopping because shops are really everywhere. Just across the street there is a City's Mall ( very much convenient for tax free, currency exchange,... More

Having been whisked away to a romantic city break to Istanbul (one of my favourite cities in the world!), I had the pleasure of staying at The Sofa Hotel. And what a pleasure it was!

Stayed at the Sofa with my family over the New Year. Very elegant, minimalistic hotel in the fashionable area of Nisantasi. Great location for shopping, cafés and restaurants which are literally on the hotel's doorstep. The breakfast was excellent and caters to everyones tastes. It can get really noisy when there's a function on at the hotel's restaurant (Frankie). Also,... More

It is also just a short cab ride to any of the tourist sites. I would rather stay here when I'm Istanbul than be in the areas over run with tourists and touts. The rooms are large and the beds...
