    Architecture

    Sinan Kafadar

    When renowned Turkish star architect Sinan Kafadar built Istanbul's Sofa Hotel, he had something bigger in mind than just an average boutique property. His creation is a mash-up of chic atmosphere, ultramodern technology, extraordinary service, and celebrated art gallery. A true gem of the local hotel scene, it is dressed in minimalist yet luxurious chic with hints of Ottoman flair. Some rooms face the bustling street of this plum location in the heart of trendy Nisantasi, a gourmet and nightlife destination, which is home to local jetsetters and cognoscenti. But the spectacular sanctuary of classy design also features rooms facing a Japanese Zen garden.

    Guests can be assured of receiving personalized, no-holds-barred service around the clock. The hotel's pièce de résistance, however, is its penthouse art gallery, Art*8, 300 square meters of indoor space and 350 square meters of outdoor space offering stunning city views.

    Interior Design

    Sleek lines

    The 82 guest rooms including 17 suites are outfitted with an eye to quality—luxurious and modern, equipped with the latest technological advances, they invite you to settle in. Sleek lines and simple geometric shapes; blond hardwood floors, black marble bathroom counters and brushed chrome fixtures; a woven blanket in soothing sand and chocolate tones; a splash of color with a pomegranate cushion.
