My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of staying in this hotel in the first week of March 2013 and we were not disappointed at all. Prior to our arrival I emailed the hotel to arrange for private airport pick-up etc and all my requests were handled promptly and professionally.
In terms of location, the hotel itself is positioned near the top of a steep hill in the trendy suburb of Beyoglu. Beyoglu is great, not full of tourists, but more a cool locals hang out with lots of neat little bars, restaurants, cafes and shops. The Istanbul Modern Gallery is about a 20 minute walk away on the Bosphorous River, and the old town area Sultanahmet with its beautiful mosques and shopping bazaar is a little further than that. Our room had an amazing view of Istanbul and the Bosphorous River which was even more incredible when lit up at night time.
The fit out and decor of the interior is superb, with fashionable and modern designer furnishings throughout. Staff are great, the guys on the reception desk are very helpful and knowledgeable of the local area, and the breakfast staff are attentive.
If I had to point out any minor areas for improvement (and let me state I'm being very picky here) it would be that whilst very delicious and plentiful, the breakfast buffet variety did not change at all during our 4 day stay and therefore got a little boring towards the last day. Also the adjoining walls between rooms did not appear to have adequate sound proofing, as we could hear our neighbour coming home at 2am, opening doors, etc. But let me stress this barely impacted our stay at all in what is really a fantastic little hotel in cosmopolitan Istanbul. I would most definately stay here again and can confidently recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a wonderful designer hotel to stay in.
Go on, do it! You won't regret it.
- 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
