The Best Falafel by Chef Ahamed at Sofitel Taksim Square

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

MIKE R TripAdvisor review

We liked the Falafel in breakfast. The best falafel I have tasted so far. I couldn't resist asking chef Ahamed to pack a few for take away. He gladly packed them for me. Amazing staff in the breakfast hall very very courteous. I mean the staff at the hotel are really good. My wife and daughter are planning to come again in December and they have decided to stay at the Sofitel

Exceptional hotel

The best 5 stars property in the heart of Taksim square. Exclusive place if you prefer to be in the middle of the shopping area , cafes , and restaurants. The service is immaculate. You feel like home because of the great team of this hotel . The porter , the receptionist, the waiters in the restaurant are exceptional. I would like to praise Ahmet Onur at club milessime for such an incredible job. A great player. Go for the Suite, huge space with great views of the city. My bed the sofitel signature bed , really offers you an awesome sleep . The room is super clean and well maintained. The Lanvin bathroom amenities and the Jo Malone soaps are a great touch. The spa , the indoor pool , fitness and hamam are not to be missed. Breakfast is super yummy. Verdict: A great value for money in the heart of Istanbul, highly recommended. We will be back . Service 10/10

I am staying at the Sofitel Hotel in room 1716 from Wednesday the 17th to Monday May 22, 2023. Today, Sunday the 21st, as it was my last night, I booked the restaurant they have on the top floor called Nomads (a restaurant that does not belong to the hotel according to the concierge) when my surprise was that when I arrived at the restaurant despite having asked for a table to be able to enjoy the show in a pleasant way, my surprise was tremendous when I arrived and saw that the restaurant manager took us to a remote part of the restaurant outside of the main room in a corner almost separated from the rest and I asked him why we had a table far from the room and he explained that it was only for couples, an excuse that seemed ridiculous to me. At that moment my husband told them if it is perfect for couples because we are a couple then the man emphasized only for heterosexual couples. In my 42 years of life and traveling around the world to different restaurants with Michelin stars or normal restaurants as well as 5-star hotels, I have never had such a bitter experience like this here at SOFITEL despite being VIP clients. It has been my second time in Istanbul and I am leaving the hotel and the restaurant disappointed because I still do not understand how it is possible that there is still such a mentality, when we saw that we left the concierge told us why we were leaving and we told him that they simply do not accept That two gays can dine in the restaurant at a table together with the others. At that moment the concierge told us that this is not the first time it has happened. We are adults, we respect and we know how to behave. We definitely won't be back. As a recommendation if you want a good restaurant go to the Marriot to the Octo restaurant it is expensive but it is worth it because it is a Michellin star and if your budget is not so high we suggest the 360 ​​restaurant that treated us correctly, polite and friendly.

Dear Kseniia Timoshkova, Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Sofitel Istanbul Taksim. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. At Sofitel Hotels & Resorts, we strive to provide a superior service experience for every customer; therefore your feedback is very important to us. Please rest assured that we are taking the appropriate measures to address the problem and prevent future occurrence. We appreciate your sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Sincerely, Atil SERAN Director of Front Office
