The Witt Hotel was a lovely place to stay if you're planning on being out and about in Istanbul. It's a smaller boutique hotel so it doesn't have may of the amenities of large hotels (pool, restaurant, spa, etc.) but it's a great, clean place to stay.
-Modern and clean
-Great A/C so awesome if you visit when it's hot outside
-Complementary bottled water in room that's refreshed daily
-Service - the front desk folks are absolutely fantastic
-Location is great if you're looking to stay near to the excitement - but not directly in it. Walking distance to Taksim and a 10 minute walk from the Tophane tram station that will take you right into the old city
-Breakfast is yummy - can eat in the lobby/dining area or have it delivered to your room
-On a key street leading to Taksim so there are constantly taxi's driving by the hotel - we never had to wait more than 1-2 minutes to flag one down
-There was a gigantic pillar in the middle of our room. It entirely separated the sitting area and the bed area. Couldn't see the TV from the bed and the sitting couch isn't particularly comfortable.
-The "bar" is a bit of a joke. They have a *very* limited selection. We had a drink one night and my husband who was trying to order a vodka tonic had to go behind the bar and show him what the vodka was and then confirm which was tonic water. All fine but then once the gentleman knew what he wanted he gave us a glass with no ice filled to the top with straight vodka and a splash of tonic. I ordered champagne and it was definitely past it's time. He served it to me in a gigantic, bulbous wine glass. They're trying but really missed the mark.
This hotel is absolutely fantastic if you need a clean, friendly place to stay but are planning on spending most of your time out visiting sites and touristing around. The service is fantastic and we were really pleased with everyone that helped us (minus maybe the bartender). We got up, ate breakfast there and then headed out for pretty much the rest of the day and we were really pleased with our experience.
- 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
