I booked the Witt Istanbul Suites having already booked into the W Istanbul and changing my mind.... I'm so glad I did!!
This place is everything you hope for when visiting a city for the first time.
The material stuff first...
The rooms are big, clean, airy, have excellent kitchen facilities and awesome shower. The fittings are high quality, nothing was broken and the design features add to the quality feel of the place.
The personal stuff...
The thing that really sets this place apart from the other high end choices in Istanbul is the staff... They are knowledgable, courteous, ever obliging no matter what the request; I would say some of the best service I've ever had. Never intrusive but when called upon for recommendations or advice they were spot on following a series of questions to hone in on exactly what we were looking for.
The final pleasant surprise was the final bill, we happily munched on nuts, coffees and even alcoholic drinks in the lobby and from the mini from time to time and having picked up bills in bars around the city thought they would be a similar cost... Not the case. They were very reasonably priced which I wish I'd known sooner as we'd have stopped for drinks more!
The location is good for those who like to walk to the main sights (or use the excellent transport links), myself and my partner didn't use the tram once... Istanbul is hilly and the hotel itself is located half way up a incline, bring sensible shoes! We easily walked across to Sultanahemet in 30 mins, stopping off for the recommend per Baklava enroute for fuel! The location is perfect for exploring antique shops, restaurants and bars that are all on its doorstep.
All round a fantastic experience... Highly recommended to all who want a fantastic base to chill out, relax and feel at home and be given pearled wisdom on what to do in this incredible city.
- 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
