From the moment we walked into the hotel and got greeted by the Ahmet the receptionists we knew we are in for a treat. We were treated with hospitality and attention to detail. We received the complimentary suite upgrade offered to us as an Accor plantings member inclusive of a wonderful balcony over looking the bosphorous. Spacious and clean with multipurpose in mind it made our stay memorable. The spa offered some of the best massage treatment with experienced hands and technique. The gym was small but enough for cardio and resistance training. The room service options were plenty and the gust relations officer were very helpful.

The overall experience was good. However, there was some noise at night coming from Nomads bar despite my comments while booking the room to provide with a quite room far from Nomads. In addition, the housekeeping needs improvement. They changed the bed sheets after 4 nights (total stay 5 nights) after notifying the reception. The employees at the reception were professional and ready to assist you.

Night manager is not suitable for his position. Room service was totally unsatisfied. He is so arrogant that he hangs up phone on customer. Placed room service order and after following up 2-3 time in span of 90 mins finally he says u never placed any order and has the audacity to hang up the phone. Then when I went to reception - definitely I was not polite but neither was he. Being in hospitality sector this should not be tolerated. Rest of the hotel staff was super good. One bad person can ruin your experience. Highest rating to all other staff members but the night manager nothing more than a zero.

I was so disappointed for the room service in the hotel and front door service. It was not the style of Sofitel and of course not the style of 5 stars hotel.

Sofitel must invest a little bit more or better manage

Customer review rating 3.0/5

R. Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

The room was good and big, only bathroom mammor console was not well cleaned and all the cream or similar substances were still there. i had to clean by myself and the floor of bathroom with many stains does not correspond for a 5 star hotel. Breakfast was a disaster, there was no service people, the tables were not cleared immediately or were not set. also the quality level and presentation of the breakfast buffet is almost unacceptable compared to another 5 star hotel in Istanbul. After my complaint Berat Bey made a big effort but as I said it has nothing to do with the people but it needs better management and investment. Then we went to SPA, they only get one towel, infrastructure is already there (lockers, deck chairs, etc) but everything empty neither extra towels nor somehow a warm tea or something. And steam bath is criminal, they probably didn't even check temperature, they can only stay inside for a minute or they get burnt, so like I said we end up back to the topic of management of infrastructures. So why am I writing this review because I was very annoyed as a Turk to see the 5 star hotel level in istanbul being reduced by Sofitel, otherwise we have very high quality level regarding 5 star hotels. So Sofitel, you have to deliver what people pay for. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

Hassanmk7r TripAdvisor review

The housekeeping is very bad they don't clean well snd they remove our short by mistake and lost it. They said we will find it but that never happened i have explained the issue multiple times to them and same answer we will find it but no good news unfortunately. They also gave a double bed which is jointed 2 single beds and every day it starts to open from the middle i didnt relax on my bed! Im paying for 5 star hotel but get lower than 3 star housekeeping service its very poor.
