IKEA Sultan Flataker Mattress Review

by Jerome

I bought the Sultan Flataker 140x200 a week ago and the only thing I can say is that it is a horrible mattress.

After it was delivered to my home, I gave it a try for a 2 hours nest which was just enough to get pain in the back.

OK I asked for a firm mattress when I was in Ikea shop, but I didn't expected the flataker to be so uncomfortable.

I have been sleeping on this mattress for a week, my back and legs really hurts (still feel the pain when I am sitting at my desk at the office).

My girlfriend got upset when she came to my place and spent a bad and hard night on the flataker.

All I wanted was to improve comfort in my life but all I got is pain in my back, suffering at work and upset girlfriend.

I would definitely not recommend the Ikea Flataker mattress.
PS: If you have any ideas for recycling my flataker...

Flataker is one of the Best Mattresses
by: Anonymous

Sorry but I disagree. I have slept on an IKEA Flataker mattress for 6 months now, and haven't had anything but a good night's sleep. In fact I bought it because the previous mattress was giving me back pain.

It is not really a hard mattress - I feel that it is soft enough while providing an adequate amount of support.

Maybe the cause of your back pain is not the mattress? Maybe it is not suited to your condition. I'm not sure what the reason is, but I can definitely vouch for this mattress as being one of the better ones I've had.

Nope...Amazingly comfortable...

I also disagree. Sultan flataker mattress is amazingly comfortable. It has sent me happily to dreamland every night for 3 years now.

I bought it 3 weeks ago in Amsterdam, needed a hard one and so tells the label but in fact its a soft one. its decreases pressure, but could not get used to it due to a sultry discomfort, unsettled sleeping position and asthmatic respiratory problems probably due to impregnated chemicals despite the 72 hour unpack before usage.

Been with the mattress for 6

I have had this mattress since 6 years. I feel it's not a good .
I blame myself for this not IKEA or product . I wanted a cheap mattress then. Now I have back pain and want to change .
