    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.

    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.

  • Single
    9.2

    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.

  • Family with children
    9.2

    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.
