Had the best time at the Witt. Beautiful hotel, staff so helpful and ideal situation for exploring Istanbul. Loved the neighbourhood of Beyoglu - come out of the hotel and turn right and within 5-10 minutes lots of bars, cafes and restaurants. Enjoyed being away from the tourist area which is 15 minutes away by cab or tram.
Looking for a great restaurant - recommend Munferit - 5 minutes by cab, 10 minutes walking.
Galata Tower at the bottom of Istiklal Caddesi, 10 minutes walk from the hotel. Lots of small shops, cafes, restaurants.
Tunel 10 minutes walk - not that interesting - just lots of shops and a square.
Sultanahmet (tourist area) 15 minutes by cab or tram. Hagia Sophia - book in for a hamam at Ayasofya Spa - not cheap however a great experience. There is a spa beside the hotel however they have specific times for men and woman.
Just beside Hagia Sophia you'll find the Topkapi Palace, the Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern and Grand Bazaar (bazaar only open on a Saturday).
10 minutes to the ferry across the bridge - take the ferry all the way to the Black Sea, have lunch, back on the ferry and back to Istanbul. This is a full day tour and worth 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
