Editorial review:

The Sofa Hotel has everything a weary traveler could ever want: large rooms, pillow menus, free ironing service, personalized letterhead, rain showers with dipping pool and a fitness room. After taking in all the delights of your room, you can dine in the highly regarded TuuS Restaurant, which serves a “New Mediterranean” cuisine.

                The Sofa istanbul Hotel was a very good experience in that it offers excellent facilities and spa.. The staff are cordial thought receptionists are not too helpful but above ok... The rooms are good and the location perfect. Cleanliness is very good... All in all above very good in most items... the 24 hour anywhere/anything is great really...

                I cannot say that I didnt like anything... I actually enjoyed most of the things I did...

                I took my girl friend there for here birthday. I booked because of the room and location. The room was perfect but to my surprise the Spa was open and was excellent. The best part was the food was fantastic, the morning breakfast was all you could ask for in the traditional Turkish Breakfast and more. The evening dinner was just as good, food was delicious and creative.

                The location, and convenience.

                I stayed in room 210 and this room did not have a window to outside.

                The breakfast was amazing and our room had a multifunctional bathroom that included a shower and a tub.

                The room was not as clean and out duvet cover had little holes on it as if moths had eaten it.

                Hotel was nicely designed....construction was a little sloppy. Housekeeping staff were very good. Location was also excellent.

                Check-in staff were inexperienced and rude at times. F & B staff were not responsive to customers. In-room dining was just OK. Pricing strategy for F & B was overpriced...even for this location.

                Hotel staff were very nice and always smiling. The design of the hotel is really top rate.

                The room size did not match what was mentioned on the various internet sites. The 40 sqm room was hardly a 33 sqm room.

                The location of the Sofahotel was perfect for sightseeing and I liked the fact that it was in the heart of the shopping area of Nisantasi. The hotel was well designed and with interesting art on display.

                We dined at the hotel in the evening, but sadly the food was not up to the expected standard.
