What I liked:

Great location, reasonable rates and the security at ground level in addition to the lobby, good breakfast for a boutique hotel.

What the hotel could do better:

Lack of English amongst the staff made communication very difficult, room key cards barely worked, Internet dropped in and out, check in/out needs to be smoother and lobby staff need to know (a lot) more about what's in the area! I asked about basic amenities and eateries but they had no idea. Showers also caused minor flooding and beds weren't comfortable. I dont think the ratings or recommendations on tablet truly reflect this hotel. I also think it is in need of an interior upgrade, very dated.

Hotel Description

Some cities are compact and manageable, the kinds of places you can easily get your head around on just one visit. Istanbul is not one of these. It’s sprawling, chaotic, and ever-changing — so a hotel like The Sofa Istanbul is doubly welcome. Not just because it’s a chic and luxurious little boutique hotel, exactly the sort we’re so enamored of, but also because it provides a foothold in an unfamiliar neighborhood — in this case Nisantasi, a district that’s home to much of Istanbul’s luxury-brand shopping, as well as all manner of cafés, clubs and restaurants.

The look is international, somewhat minimalist, a reminder that there’s more to Istanbul than the ancient mosques of the Sultanahmet — this is a 21st-century world capital, and the Sofa’s contemporary interiors confidently underscore that point. The hotel’s 65 rooms and 17 suites are outfitted with an eye to quality, and nothing is left out — rain showers, LCD screens, high-speed internet and laptop-sized safes. A health club leave you with every opportunity to take care of yourself, and the restaurants are not to be missed: the casual Café Sofa and the more formal Longtable are both thoughtfully conceived and exquisitely designed.

How to get there:

The Sofa Istanbul is approximately a 30 minute drive from Ataturk Airport and a 3 minute walk from the Istanbul Convention Center.
