Hotel Overview


Sitting snugly in the fashionable Nisantasi quarter.

Rooms at the Sofa Hotel

Clean lines and neutral tones accent the minimalism of Sofa Hotel’s 82 bedrooms, of which 17 are suites. You’ll find blond hardwood floors and injections of pomegranate-red in the bedrooms, while bathrooms have marble counters and monochrome mosaics. Umar’s Suite is the ultimate luxury with a Jacuzzi and steam-bath on the large terrace outside.

Food and facilities

It’s unsurprising that the rooftop bar, Frankie, is a magnet for non-guests, given its frequent DJ shows and live acoustic performances; not to mention lively ambiance and sweeping views across the city. Cafe Sofa is the more casual lounge, for international dishes in a relaxed setting: there’s also a lovely bookstore attached. A spa and fitness centre is at the disposal of the health-conscious.

Activities at the Sofa Hotel

When we say that Sofa Hotel is a contemporary art hotel, we mean it. Not only does the exquisite artwork adorn the walls throughout the hotel; there’s even an art gallery here, hosting fantastic art exhibitions and events. There’s no shortage of shops, malls and boutiques in Nisantasi, which is a playground for the fashionista.
