“What a gem - wonderful service and amazing rooms”
Reviewed 31 July 2011

The Witt Istanbul Suites is an amazing hotel. It is very well designed and the staff are super friendly. All of the receptionists provided great advice and their recommendations were spot on including the hairdresser and the 'börek' (a form of Turkish pastry) shop. I rarely had a more professional service in a hotel. The room was impeccably clean and quiet and came with free Wifi.

The breakfast in the hotel is truly amazing (the omelet is not to be missed). You are offered a rich choice and an added bonus is that you can have the breakfast in your room. The room has a small area to prepare tea etc. There is a Nespresso machine but the price for a capsule at 3 Euro a piece is a bit on the expensive side.

The location is perfect, right in the 'hip' part of Istanbul with lots of restaurants, bars and shopping. Traveling to the Old Town for sightseeing is very easy using the tram. This part of Istanbul is very hilly and the way up to the hotel is steep but short. If you don't like the steep hill, you can always use a taxi. The receptionists can order you one and they even give you instructions to show the taxi driver on your return.

It is surely a classy place with local charm and definitely one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in.

I stayed a few nights during the business trip.

Room was modern, spacious and high quality. As a room was located in upper floors of the building it also provided peaceful rest without noise from the street - not always the case in a big, noisy city like Istanbul.

Personnel was very friendly and always willing to help.

Having stayed in more than fifteen different five or four star hotels in Istanbul I rank this hotel to be among the best ones and considering the price/quality it scores even better.

Sincerely can recommend this hotel.

We absolutely loved our stay at The Witt. The decor was great (especially loved the quirky Mr Witt in the elevator), the rooms were fantastic, so spacious with everything you needed and more, as well as spotless. The beds were also very comfortable.

The service was outstanding, the concierge could do everything from book a restaurant for you to ordering food to your room late at night from a local restaurant, they were extremely helpful. The breakfast was also very good, the food was fresh with lots of choice.

The location is good, especially if you would like to go out at night, there are a lot of excellent fine dining choices in this area with great views over the city. The tram stop is not far to walk to and can take you into the old town quickly and easily for sight seeing. The main thoroughfare, Istiklal Caddessi, is close by too. Best to wear comfortable walking shoes though because even though everything is in relatively close proximity you are constantly going up and down steep walkways.

I would not hesitate to stay here again, it made our experience in Istanbul all the more outstanding!

I am writing this from my room at Witt as we speak it's so good. I stay in many hotels and I think this is the quietest and most comfortable place I have stayed. Not once have I been woken up by noise and I'm a light sleeper and in a normal room on the 3rd floor. The bed, pillows and mattress are top quality. we have managed to wash some clothes in the sink and dry them thanks to the under floor heating in the bathroom. The air cond is very quiet, the little cakes are a welcome treat. You need to be able to walk up hills on uneven surfaces to stay here but the location is great. couldnt recommend it highly enough. if you want to swim, go to the private pool at Galatasaray Island. It's a short taxi ride from Witt and about 60L each !! to get in but a fab day out like you're at a 5 star resort and a good break from walking the streets in the heat.

I have stayed in Witt for 10 days. I certainly can recommend this hotel even for longer stays in Istanbul.
Hotel is located in a trendy neighbourhood with a lot of restaurants and small boutiques. The most kind staff I have ever met. Always helpful and oh so kind
The spacious room (no 32 with a little view of the Galata Tower) gave me a cosy domestic feeling I did not want to leave the hotel.
The breakfast was great ike among all other things of the hotel, the bathroom amenities of Molton Brown

Thanks again for this wonderful stay in Witt

The rooms were stylish, modern and so comfortable! They were fully equipped and cleaned impeccably on a daily basis. The service was extremely attentive- from the concierge to the cleaners. Delicious breakfast everyday of eggs, fruit salad, toast, pastries and tea. We absolutely loved our time in Istanbul and would highly recommend this as your base. Perfect location for all the sights.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Witt Istanbul Suites has an excellent location within walking distance from Istanbul's business district, Istanbul Modern museum and the buzzing bars and boutiques of both Beyoglu and Cihangir. All 15 suites span a generous 60m2. They are popular for long-stay guests as each has a Carrera marble-clad kitchenette with microwave, fridge and Nespresso machine. The super-cool beds with curved headboards and the laptop desks have been especially designed for Witt Istanbul Suites by Autoban. Sheets and towels were also commissioned from Denizli, a famous purveyor of Turkish linen. Cable TV, an excellent DVD collection, ipod docks and a welcome gift of multi-coloured macaroons are indulgent touches. But it's the bathrooms that make these suites really special. The ergonomic Corian sinks with pebble-shaped handles and the cluster of shower-heads that create a cocoon of misty hot water are all from designer Ross Lovegrove's Istanbul collection from Vitra. ... more   less
