The maiden Sofitel Hotels & Resorts property has opened in Turkey: Sofitel Istanbul Taksim.
The hotel officially opened in early November in Taksim Square, known as the heart of modern Istanbul. Developed in collaboration with Turkey-based Tuna Group, Sofitel Istanbul Taksim is a luxury haven offering an impeccable blend of Sofitel’s inspired mix of French modern elegance with the cosmopolitan style of Istanbul.
Sofitel Istanbul Taksim is infused with the soul and character of the historic site where it resides. The location has been a famous hotspot within the bustling Taksim neighbourhood for over a century. Originally home to the grand Magic Cinema, the property went on to become one of the most famous nightclubs in Istanbul. Maxim opened in 1921, and reigned at the top of Istanbul’s nightlife for several decades. Today, Sofitel Istanbul Taksim is the newest and most anticipated luxury hotel in the Taksim neighbourhood.
Guests of Sofitel Istanbul Taksim will revel in the luxury of 202 chic guestrooms including 33 suites, each suite outfitted with Hermés products while all other guestrooms will feature Atelier Cologne bathroom amenities for guests to delight in.
Guestrooms offer expansive views of Taksim Square or the nearby Bosphorus strait, one of the world’s most strategic waterways and a popular Istanbul landmark. Club and suite guests have exclusive access to the property’s Club Millésime, with special services such as private check-in, personalized service, afternoon tea and treats, and more.
A rare find in Istanbul, the hotel features an outdoor rooftop swimming pool. The hotel’s state-of-the-art Sofitel Spa offers treatments inspired by traditional Turkish rituals with the delicacy of French cosmetology, featuring products from French luxury skincare brand Sothys. It is fitted with an indoor pool, seven treatment rooms, a traditional Turkish Hammam, steam room, sauna, and fully equipped fitness centre.
