I've been to Istanbul a few times before, but this was my first time staying on the Asian side. This hotel was booked for me (by my local agent). They use this hotel frequently for other guests. Because of the booking, I had been upgraded to a suite (top floor, corner room). This provided beautiful views and ensured the room... More

Appart from the view from the swimmimg pool, everything is bad: rooms are filthy, noisy, and stink of cigarette. And lets face it, a view of the bosphorus in Istanbul is fairly common, so this place is definitely not worth a stay.

We had our wedding in June 2014 and tried to work on almost all the details of the wedding banquet meticulously. However, the seemingly helpful staff did a very low quality job and fell short of meeting the standards that they had claimed to offer us. The DJ of the hotel changed 10 minutes before our wedding and he appointed... More

The hotel was recomented by one of our Turkish business partners that we had to vistit in Uskudar, mainly because of the location (btw that indeed was great!). Stayed there only one night but will never come back. Sozbir is a very old and not very clean hotel. The rooms were big but very fusty - eveything from the dusty... More

Just had the worst experience ever at a hotel at the Sozbir. Forcing us to pay someone's else's restaurant bill before we could take a taxi to the airport - literally holding us hostage at the door. We didn't want to miss our plane, so we ended up paying the bill. All for a $30 restaurant bill after we'd spent... More
