A week at the Sofa in Istanbul has been delightful. Very nice space, beautiful art, excellent food and outstanding service. The hotel is conveniently located. It sits in the middle of the fashion district. You're surrounded by the great designers of the world. Of course there are small local shops around that offer the best of the city. I can't... More

Rooms facing into the courtyard are the quietest, but the rooms facing the lively City Mall in Nisantasi offer a much better view. I have been to this hotel 3 times in the last year and it really offers great value for money. The restaurants and cafes in the area are top class - make sure to visit Juno, which... More

Staying in Sisli

Neighborhood Profile
Sisli
For much of Istanbul’s history, Sisli and the area just north of Taksim Square were open countryside used mostly as hunting grounds. These days, Sisli and its chic streets are considered the very heart of contemporary Istanbuli life, where an epicenter of fashion and a thriving business district meet to create an expressly “downtown” feel. Though largely a residential neighborhood, luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and upscale shops abound with many of them situated inside or nearby Cevahir Istanbul, the biggest shopping mall in Europe and second biggest urban shopping mall in the world. Shopaholics and fashionistas travel from near and far to browse the area's mix of major global brand items and creations by popular Turkish designers.
