IKEA Sultan Finnvik Review

by Mutalib Attholib

For me, IKEA mattresses are the best so far. I have used their foam mattresses since 2004 and they have not disappointed me since. Some of my friends ask me why I choose foam mattresses rather than spring ones. I think maybe the foam mattress brings back my memories of the old days when I and my family couldn't afford to buy a spring mattress. Therefore, we used foam mattresses and gradually became comfortable with them.

We have tried to use inner spring types of mattress but we have difficulty sleeping on them.

Now, I am using Ikea’s Sultan Finnvik. It is more expensive than the mattresses we have used before but it is really comfortable (but my friends seem to disagree on that). I feel really energetic and feel fully awake after having a long nights sleep on that mattress.

I still remember the salesman said to me that this mattress can improve blood circulation. It can make me relax all my muscles and tendons. I believe it does give those benefits.

Some may agree and some may disagree though. I will get married next year. I really hope that she will have the same mattress preferences as me. Seriously!

It's really uncomfortable after 3-4 hours
by: Anonymous

My wife and I bought this mattress after looking at many Ikea mattresses. It feels real comfortable at first, but throughout the night the mattress compresses and it feels like you're sleeping on some blankets covering the floor. My wife and I wake up sore quite a bit on that mattress. Would not buy again.

Wal Mart had a really good foam mattress called the 10" Spa Sensations. They no longer stock it. Too bad.

I must agree. I just bought it and I have the same feeling. When I wake up. I feel backache. What did you do? Is it better after any time?

No support at all. It felt firm at the store, but when you actually sleep on it, it's soft and squishy like a cheap futton mattress. Horrible backaches! Don't buy if you like medium/firm.

Love our Finnvik

This mattress is getting a lot of poor reviews but it works great for my husband and I. My husband is 6'7" and 190lbs. I am 5'4' and 124lbs. The mattress gives us both amazing support and doesn't feel thin or like blanket pallet on the floor. If you're a thinner person Ikea mattresses are going to give you a firm yet very comfortable support.

Not so great
by: Frank

At first when we got the mattress, I fell in love with it. I slept real good for the first year. After that I've had problems sleeping in it .. Now forward 3 years with back problems.. I can't even sleep in it ..after ten mins I feel my back hurting more and more so, now sleeping in the middle like its was never used .. Seems to help but from where I stand in front of it you can see both sides of a king mattress is sink in , I've flipped it and it helps for 2 days then it does the same thing all over.. So, I would like to see if they will honor that 25 year warranty by replacing it .. Thanks

We bought this mattress about four years ago. It was great at first, but now it has developed a deep sag in the center, and my partner & I suffer from back pain every morning because of it. She's a back & side sleeper; I'm a side & stomach sleeper. Not sure if IKEA will honor the 25-year warranty, but I'm tempted to try.

Great Price but now I am suffering
by: Craig R.

I just now rolled out of bed. Its become a real chore to get up. I have to roll onto my stomach and try and stretch my back. It hurts so bad. Loved it when I first got it but now everyday is painful.
