Sofa hotel is located in Nisantasi which is very popular for locals. Great location for cafes, restaurants and shopping. It has a great bar on top floor which has a wonderful view of Istanbul. After a busy day, soaking in the pool is a great experience.

Th Sofa hotel is located in the middle of Nişantaşi which is the best area for shopping. It is located exactly in front of the City Nişantaşi mall. The room is pretty okay, but try to change your room if they give you one on the mall's side. The staff are super friendly and the interior is very unique

The Club scene moves around Istanbul and hotels share the spotlight - Tuesday is usually Sofa's night. Full of activity. The rooms are great, service good, everything makes you welcome and the area is worth visiting. Always enjoy staying here.

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.
