“Charming & helpful staff”
Reviewed 15 June 2012

A charming hotel which became our oasis from the hustle & bustle of Istanbul.
Charming and helpful staff. Minutes away from the tram line to the main attractions but in a quieter area dotted with restaurants, shops, Turkish baths

Room Tip: Higher floors have a view across the Golden Horn to Topkapi, Blue Mosque

From the second they offered us a "welcome" glass of wine, we were sold. The rooms are amazing - big, clean, modern & super stylish. We loved sitting on our couch, with the french doors open (we had a corner room - so we had four sets of doors/french balconies). We were on on the first floor up (I think #11) and didn't find it noisy at all. For the people who complain about looking into other apartment buildings, come on, you're in the middle of big city. If you want an unobstructed view, go stay in one of the big chains that has more floors. We prefery chic boutique hotels like the Witt.

The neighborhood/location is amazing - you're not in a tourist section at all but just next to them if that's what you enjoy. Also, we didn't find the hills around the hotel to be a bother (or that big) at all.

Breakfast was great - a huge selection of top quality items. Plus, their turkish coffee w/ cardamom was the best we had all trip.

I guess the only very small con is the front desk service. Other than the last guy who checked us out, they were a little cold. Not unfriendly but just not all that engaging.

We would recommend the Witt to friends for sure & will stay here again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: We had a corner suite, #11 (first floor). I think corner suites are bigger and definitely have more...

We've stayed for a long weekend at Witt Suites. The location is great: just a couple of tram stops away from Sultanahmet - the Old City with all its main tourist attractions and a 10 min walk to Taksim square and Galata Tower. We stayed at the top floor in a well-decorated room (63) with a beautiful view over the Galata Tower and Golden Horn and a nice little roof terrace. Upon request breakfast was served on our roof terrace. Staff is very attentive and are happy to arrange restaurants and outings. Next time we will stay again at Witt Suites although we won't use their airport transportation as taxis are abundant and half the price of the Hotel's transport.

Room Tip: Topfloor (6) for the beautiful view and roof terrace

Am at the end of a 6 night stay at The Witt Suites Istanbul and have loved every minute of it. The suite is massive and oh so stylish with a rainstorm shower to die for in the ensuite. Everyone is incredibly knowledgeable and helpful and the position as far as the best shopping,bars and hip vintage cafes is second to none. The old side is a 4 stop tram ride from the bottom of the hill. This Hotel is so the best value and without a doubt in my mind 5 star for those who truly appreciate style and service. Would love to move in forever.......

Room Tip: A sunny corner suite on the third floor with 4 juliette balconies and views from 2 of the Bosphorus...

I stayed at this property for three nights. The rooms are large with separate kitchenette and sitting areas. The hotel is marketed as a member of 'Design Hotels'. From experience, many hotels with a modern design are often impractical to use. This is not the case for Witt. The service was also very good. Everyone was unobstrusive but helpful and friendly at the same time. The hill to the hotel is steep but it is very close to the Tophane tram stop. I would definitely stay here again on my next visit to the city.

Witt Istanbul Suites is conveniently located across the Golden Horn from the main tourist area (Topkapi, Blue Mosque et al). The upper floor suites have great views across the rooftops, South and West. The rooms are the largest most people are likely to experience. The shower is vast. The big bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I have come across. An ample refrigerator is welcome. A kettle supplies hot water for tea and coffee. While the tea is free, the Nespresso coffee capsules are grossly over-priced at 2€ each. A selection of regular and decaffeinated capsules in cartons of ten at a more modest price (say twice cost price) would be welcome. The staff were courteous and obliging, almost a cross between reception and concierge. Breakfast was good, varied and generous. The hotel is close to the main tramline to the tourist centre though the walk up the hill to the hotel from the tram stop is character-building. Located off the main thoroughfares, the hotel is quiet enough. Guests with mobility problems would find access to the hotel restricted to taxis. I would not hesitate to recommend the hotel to friends.

Room Tip: Ask for a view by email when booking

I wish we could find a place as the Le Witt in every city. We were absolutely taken by the hotel.

Le Witt is a small boutique hotel, that is elegantly furnished with a very modern Turkish feel. The suites have generous proportions and we had the most stunning view from our room (no 52). The marble bathroom was super and the bed so comfortable that we slept far too long.

The staff in the hotel is very friendly. At times, the receptionist is also the concierge and barman, but the service is very friendly and helpful in booking reservations and taxis. It is true that the hotel is on a super steep hill - but without the hill, there would be no views. It is worth it. And there are plenty of cheap taxis in Istanbul if you wish to avoid the climb.

The hotel is located in a trendy part of Istanbul with plenty of good bars, shops and restaurants around. You can feel at home.

We would go back in a heartbeat. Thank you Le Witt for a great stay!

Room Tip: Top floor rooms for views.

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
