The hotel has a prime location at the heart of Taksim where the crowd is all the time. The rooms are quite large and well furnished and equipped with all required amenities. The staff most of them friendly and helpful.

Well located on Taksim Square.

Great location and beautiful rooms

Victoria Couples - 13/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Our overall stay in Sofitel Istanbul was great. First of all, it is nicely located, you can walk down the Istiklal pedestrian street to the bridge and the old town, or you can walk another way to fancy restaurants and cozy coffee shops. The rooms are spacious and well furnished, the bed was really comfy. Breakfasts were pretty good, though it lacks organisation in orders. Apart from that everything was good.

sofianm227 11/10/2021 TripAdvisor review

the staff is not at all up to the hotel (except a few servers) despite several complaints, no manager contacted me to resolve the various problems noted such as cleaning not done and poorly done several times! the breakfast is to be reviewed in its entirety and I do not recommend it because for a sofitel I am really disappointed. despite the fact that I am a platinum member no intention was made to me unlike the other hotel in the group where I have always been well received. the only positive side is the hotel spa which is very good. despite several stays in different hotels around the world I have never seen such a mediocre quality of service and especially for this type of hotel. I hope that this comment will make the management of the group react because the hotel and the rooms are very good. Thank you

Good location .

Mohammed A. Families - 05/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I have stayed last year in this hotel 10 days and it was amazing experience , this year I booked 3 nights and I was totally shocked from the staff treatment and also how dirty the room is. I requested a baby bed and the sent me a dirty baby bed sheet on top , I even have a photo of the bed . Unfortunately this hotel does not represent the brand Sofitel.

Perfect location and Great Experience as Always

We loved our stay. We've stayed 4 times now. Every time we've been in Istanbul. We love that the staff are helpful, super friendly and professional. They also recognize us and stop to ask how we are and it feels personal and genuine. We tried the hammam this time and it was fantastic!

Good stay overall, improvement still required

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Tareq Families - 03/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Overall the stay was good specially with the good service and help by the front desk staff. I checked in at room 1404 and the room was extremely dirty and way below expectations. After complaining my room was changed to 1703 which was extremely better and cleanliness of the room was 80% better and still needs improvement. I must say the staff was helpful and welcoming.

Thanks to Mr. John Mustafa for making our stay memorable to The Oven staff and to the luggage receiver staff

It is indeed a satisfying stay with a warm welcome from all the staff and an exceptional service extended to us by Mr. John Mustafa, me and my friends are very grateful. Location is the best very near to Istiklal Street and Train station, cleanliness is the best, breakfast are well satisfying, plenty of food to choose with an accomodating treatment from all the staff, Covid measures are well taken care of. Highly recommendable, we'll come back.

jordifakiani1 25/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

Overrated hotel. Rooms with bad quality details, not Sofitel standards. Breakfast is not good enough. Coffee is terrible. The details in the swimming pool area are not good enough. Elevators smell and are super hot. Some staff with attitude. I won’t come back.

Beautiful hotel very well located

Chuck Couples - 24/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Very enjoyable. However, there is structural problem in your showers as water is going outside the shower all over the bathroom into the wood floor of the bed room. Also, another big problem is the blue light (during the night). These blue lights are so intense its difficult to sleep. We had to cover them the best we could.

Overall staff not professional.
