Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My wife and I really love Istanbul and decided to stay to stay near Taksim Square this time and chose Sofitel. Absolutely great choice! Everything about the hotel seems brand new and the staff are all extremely friendly and genuinely wanted to go the extra mile to make our stay better. Add to this the simply incredible views from your room of the Bosphorus and I simply must recommend Sofitel Istanbul very highly.

The location is really perfect with all the shops and restaurants within few minutes. We even found a small cinema on Istiklal street which is just 5 minutes away. The metro is also within 2 minutes and there are taxis literally at your front door.

The hotel as mentioned is brand new and has everything you could want. From a fantastic heated swimming pool to a great gym, great terrace with a Bosphorus view and really varied breakfast options as well. We had access to the executive club and that was a treat as each day we were the only ones there and it felt like our living room! You can choose to have breakfast there as well, but since the main breakfast area was quite empty as well we chose to have breakfast there. The room was big and had all the amenities as expected including big screen TV, USB ports etc. Very well designed room and bathroom and the nightly turn down service with Godiva chocolates was really appreciated. The women at the gym/pool area also were very friendly and showed us around including the hammam, sauna and spa areas.

Service was a constant 5 stars throughout and really made us feel welcome. I cannot overstate how important this is. All the facilities in the world can be let down by poor customer service, but really impressed with Sofitel Istanbul in this regard. We were actually celebrating our anniversary and it was really nice of them to send us a beautiful cake. Also they let us check in early which was amazing after our long flight.

Overall we both loved Sofitel Istanbul and if we are lucky enough to be able to visit Turkey again in the future, we will choose it without hesitation for Istanbul.

overall the hotel is great.
location is brilliant, right off taksim square and once you enter the hotel you escape the crowd outside
the rooms are tastefully decorated and very spacious
bathroom was big and nicely done as well
breakfast options at the club lounge was amazing
beautiful pool and spa facilities

overall the service is excellent, cant say enough good things about the front desk staff especially Mehmet. all the staff at the front desk was exceptional
the lounge staff could be a bit more friendly

on the cons, the housekeeping staff is terrible. could be because its a new hotel but the housekeeping staff definitely needs to improve. the rooms were cleaned but no consistency. one day they would forget to restock the coffee and the other day water. also on the turn down service, would get a chocolate one day and the other day nothing. We had 3 rooms totally and same story on all the 3 rooms across 3 different floors
also in the rains there was some small leakage issue on the top floor , but the minute we mentioned that to the amazing front desk, they got us upgraded to a bosphorus view suite.

also check in and check out was quick and efficient.
its aslo a very new hotel so needs a bit of time to get its act to an amzing level.
overall great hotel with an amazing front desk staff

Dear Managers of the Sofitel TAKSIM Istanbul,
The service at the Sofitel in general was good. I stayed in this hotel a number of times during the months of April, May, June and July 2021.
There is however one department of the hotel which might benefit considerably from more supervision.
I am talking here about the breakfast served on floor B1:
01.
The breakfast itself is very good. There is an excellent choice of food and the way the food is presented shows a high degree of dedication.
02.
The attitude of ALL of the female staff members, without any exception, is also excellent. They are helpful and seem to be genuinely interested in the well being of their guests.
03.
The attitude of SOME of the male waiters, especially the younger ones however, is not what a guest expects in a Sofitel. They are often standing together and seem to be engaged in conversations with each other for long periods of time without showing any interest in their guests. They certainly do not come to you and ask how they can be of help.
I have observed this attitude ALL of the days I took the breakfast on floor B1 during the months of April, May, June and July 2021. There is a consistent pattern of behaviour which I have also experienced in some countries which belonged to the communist block before 1991.
04.
Furthermore I believe that there is an opportunity to improve the data flow in the hotel.
My points after a stay in an Accor hotels are usually credited automatically to my card.
But after stays at the Sofitel Taksim I have always to ask for these points, sometimes repeatedly and it can take weeks before they are credited.
05.
As a compensation for my contribution to your smooth operation I request you to credit my diamond card with an amount of 10.000 points to my card with number
3081034 09866052 0.
Thanking you very much in advance for your much appreciated attention,
Sincerely Yours,
Hugo van Reijen

There is no proper breakfast at all “due to corona reasons” - we were only offered fried eggs or plain omelette for the price of 150 eur per night. Waiters couldn't explain a thing due to not very good English and we needed to speak to reception to understand what we could actually eat. The answer already after our breakfast was: "You can order anything, but there is no menu because of corona. If waiters don't understand you, please come to reception". In the end we were given plain small omelette without even ham or any substantial additions. Why should we waste time on all those clarifications, if waiters propose only 2 options in the beginning not mentioning anything else? Why should I spend time coming to reception for simple breakfast orders? To me it seems like shameless saving on customers, which is hidden under this "due to corona" argument. Picture of "fabolous" breakfast is added. Cleaning quality is disgusting. On my birthday we returned to our room and found that the bathroom wasn't cleaned properly: spots on mirror, on basin tap and on shower tap, replaced toilet paper was with red dots on it (!! see photos), dust on floor, no new coffee capsules, hair conditioner wasn't replaced. We specifically asked that day for an extra cleaning and for repair of toilet flush which was pouring water constantly, but when we were back, again it still wasn't clean. In the evening of my birthday we spent so much time for asking just basic things. In the end the guy from the reception came to clean bathroom himself, which was very nice of him, but the day was completely ruined. I can’t remember any other 5 star hotel when we needed to ask twice (!) for a proper cleaning and for at least any substantial breakfast.
“Lounge access” which Sofitel sells as an additional paid option is access to a public terrace opened for everybody plus only 1 meal for dinner plus drinks. Option is not worthy of its cost

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

This was generally an average experience from beginning to end. In my opinion, this hotel does not provide the accommodation, facilities or the service that one should expect of a five star establishment.

We were eventually given a very ordinary room with a concrete outlook after the attempt to allocate us a room in the basement. The room had a TV that not even the hotel technical staff could operate so we were unable to use this facility during our downtime as we did not want staff spending even more time in our room. In addition the hot water jug imparted an unpleasant flavour into any hot drinks that were made. It would be good if these facilities are checked before guests occupy rooms.

The breakfast service offered a good range of choices. The waiting service was quite disorganised though and it seemed to take a very long time for egg orders to reach the table.

Our final night was marred due to a very disturbed night’s sleep because the night time security took over 2 hours to effectively manage unsupervised children using the corridor outside our room as a playground. Surely guest comfort should be a priority in a 5 star hotel.

We enjoyed the service we received in the Oven Brasserie. It served good cocktails and some nice Turkish wines with tasty complementary bar snacks. The other positive point of this hotel was the day time reception area staff, Kaan and Tufan, who were very friendly and helpful.

I had high expectations of Sofitel Istanbul Taksim given its reputation, however, I left feeling very disappointed.

My experience at Sofitel Istanbul Taksim was nothing short of exceptional, a true embodiment of luxury and attentive service that defines the Sofitel brand. This hotel, with its prime location and stunning views, provided an unforgettable backdrop to my Istanbul adventure.

One of the most remarkable aspects of my stay was the breakfast experience, expertly managed by Serateh, who leads the dining staff with exceptional leadership and attentiveness. Her ability to ensure every guest felt welcomed and valued was noteworthy, creating a dining experience that was as delightful as the delicious food served. The quality and variety of the breakfast offerings were impressive, with special attention given to every detail, from presentation to taste.

The rooms at Sofitel Istanbul Taksim are designed with elegance and comfort in mind, offering a sanctuary of peace amidst the bustling city. My room provided luxurious amenities and a comfortable space to relax after a day of exploring Istanbul.

The entire staff at Sofitel Istanbul Taksim were professional and courteous, demonstrating a commitment to excellence in hospitality. From the front desk to the housekeeping team, each member contributed to a seamless and welcoming experience.

In conclusion, my stay at Sofitel Istanbul Taksim was an outstanding example of how a hotel can truly enhance the travel experience. I would especially recommend this hotel for those who value exceptional dining experiences, as Serateh and her team elevate breakfast to a memorable event. I eagerly anticipate my next visit, confident in the knowledge that it will be as splendid as the last.

From the moment I arrived, until the moment I left I was very well looked after by the excellent staff at the hotel. Silah the Front Desk Supervisor was extremely helpful and helped me move room twice.
Teflon was also very helpful and also the Front Desk Officer, the Head Concierge and the Restaurant Manager.
The rooms are fabulous, clean and spacious and my first room had a sea view.
However, the nightclub plays music each night until midnight, and the higher floor you stay on and underneath the nightclub, you can't get any sleep even with earplugs and noise cancelling headphones, hence the two room moves to get some sleep.
The location of the hotel is perfect and I walked everywhere from there. There are plenty of shops, bras and restaurants nearby so you are spoiled for choice.
The food and drinks were of very good quality and I opted for the half board package which was worth it.
There are very good facilities around the hotel such as the spa, indoor pool and outdoor pool, but I didn't use them. You get great views from the hotel roof too, so it's worth a look.
I really recommend this hotel as the staff are its best asset and the location is fantastic. Just ensure you stay as far away from the nightclub as you can, and you will have the perfect stay.

I walked it, and it took about 30 minutes. If you get a taxi it's ten minutes more as the traffic is so heavy. I had a suite and it was very comfortable and spacious, and you get entry to Club Miliseme.
