“Wow...you won't regret staying here”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

I was wondering why the hotel was called 'Suites' - until I got into my room. Huge. Gorgeous. I wanted to stay here all day. Real Molton Brown toiletries, massive room with kitchenette that doesn't look used, the ubiquitous Nespresso machine, super comfy bed, lovely bathroom and great decor. My only complaint about the room is the desk chair is just a stool, which is terrible if you need to use the desk to work at for more than 10 mins. Breakfast downstairs is really good and the whole place just reeks of taste. Even the bookcase in the lobby is filled with terribly cool books. Service was great, location right in the heart of the city near the Bosphorus is fab. Listen to all the great reviews - they're right.

Room Tip: They're all gorgeous

Recommended by our travel agent, we could not have been happier with the Witt. Well located in lively Çihangir, with views over the Bosphorus and surrounded by hilly streets full of great cafes. Fantastic rooms, great breakfast, but the best aspect is the service. The staff here are knowledgeable, friendly and gave us really excellent tips on where to eat; the relatively small size of the Witt allows for a more personal feel than the service in bigger places. While not inexpensive, the quality of the experience represents real value for money. One of the best hotel experiences I've had anywhere in the world.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights after three nights in the Old City. The hotel is absolutely perfect. Just 17 rooms and ours was the size of a small apartment. Perfect details in the room, there was a kitchenette, a sitting area with a TV, great firm bed and a huge bathroom. The staff is helpful and friendly and the breakfast is just right.

I will definitely be coming back.

Have just spent 5 nights at this fantastic place, one inadvertently after a late transfer caused us to miss a connecting flight. So, the up side of this situation was being able to go 'home' for one more evening...such helpful staff, they are a real credit to this hotel! Lovely, well appointed and clean rooms (with welcoming pastries), free wifi, excellent location (close to public transport which was our chosen method for getting around, it was so easy-although the walk up the hill is a killer!). Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Istanbul.

Great hotel . The hotel is well centered between Istanbuls different arreas close to the tram to take you to the old city , walking distance to Taksim sq . Great service from the staff , the rooms are large 45 sqm with design furniture a homey feeling with the mix of wooden floors and the marble kitchenet , the bathroom has inventive showerheads and the shape of the toilet is like a little spaceship. Breakfast is simple and nice .

Room Tip: The corner rooms on the higher levels has a fantastic view over the city and sea.

We stayed at the Witt for 5 nights and had a terrific overall experience.

The location is excellent. Cihangir is a quiet neighborhood in Beyoğlu with lots of cafes and residential buildings so you feel like more of a local than a tourist. It's only a 10 minute walk to Istiklal Cd. (shopping, bars, clubs, restaurants) and Taksim Square. There were a few sporadic protests still going on in Taksim but our location was ideal -- close enough to walk over to Taksim to eat and shop but far removed enough to not be bothered when we went 'home'. It's also a 5 minute walk from the Tophane tram station and a 15 minute walk from the Istanbul Modern museum. Taxis are easy to find everywhere. As others have noted, the hotel is located on a fairly steep hill that is a tough walk after a long day, but it's nothing that would stop us from staying here again -- and a good way to work off all that baklava!

The hotel is very modern and impeccably designed. Our room was spacious, very clean and extremely well appointed. The view of the Bosphorus and city from our private terrace was stunning. We had breakfast brought to the room every morning, which was very convenient. That said, the food was average and there were a few mix-ups with our order a few times during our stay. Also note that some standard hotel amenities do not exist (pool, restaurant, gym) and the 'hotel' is more of a high-end serviced apartment -- which is still great and gives it a home-away-from-home feel.

The service at the Witt was generally good, there were a few missteps which prevented it from being a truly excellent experience. While the hotel does have a concierge, we received little helpful information on restaurants and the front desk was sometimes empty during the day. When it was staffed, we had difficulty getting recommendations as some of the staff spoke little English. During check out, the front desk staff refused a 50 EUR note because it had a small tear in it (we used it at the airport with no problem).

Nevertheless, we greatly enjoyed our experience at the Witt and would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 6th floor with panoramic Bosphorus river views are amazing. The private terrace and vie...

There is little "wrong" about the Witt, other than its unfortunate lack of amenities. While service was gracious, rooms lovely, and lots of thoughtful extras added (like free wifi, little pastries in your room daily,inexpensive bar, yummy breakfast etc ) ....I did not know how much I would miss a pool or roof top bar.

Our room was a suite, advertising views of the city and Bosphorus.......but actually we just faced other buildings across the tiny street....little disappointing, but not a major inconvenience.

Our biggest problem over the week, was, as the hotel is so small, not one taxi driver knew where it was.......and we took loads of taxis, as it is so extremely hilly in Istanbul. We always traveled with a map of the hotel location and the written address, but that was no help at all.

Otherwise a delightful place to stay.

Room Tip: Need to insist on the top floor if you want a view. Our room faced the street and other buildings. I...
