I had previously been in Istanbul with my girlfriends on a tour a few months ago. i went back with family and we decided to stay at Sofitel Taksim Square because of its location. True enough, the location was convenient. Easy with transportation, Taksim square right smack there, food everywhere, bus stops on your doorstep, taxi waiting as you go out of the hotel, uber so easy to use. The room was good sized with Atelier Cologne amenities, there was turndown service in the evening, the staff were accommodating. This is not a huge resort hotel but its just the right amount of luxury combined with a convenient location. Cant be beat. We will be back.
