“felt like home-excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2009

Rooms and feeling of the whole place?Out of the six night stay at Witt,my friend woke up one day feeling ill and as a result we had to stay in most of the day - neither my friend nor I felt like being locked up in a hotel room.We actually enjoyed the well designed spacious suites with all comforts provided like an espresso machine - dvd e.t.c.The staff were all helpful and always with a smile, from the boys at breakfast to the driver who picked us at the airport to Murat and Aykut who were always willing to help out and arranged our restaurant reservations by even attatching guides and maps to our e-mails prior to our arrival. Not to forget - the shower is just great! Will visit again!

If you want to know how cool this place is, listen to its website background music (can anyone tell me who is playing that big fat baritone sax?).

When we entered the room, all we could think was 'damn, how are we going to surpass this on a future city trip..'. Spoilt rotten at Witt Istanbul.

Only after thinking very hard I can come up with a suggestion: raise the rates just enough to make orange juice included at breakfast (it felt a bit silly to pay for it seperately).

Thank you very much for your nice comments. I am also a fan of the tune on our website. I will certainly think about seriously about the orange juice being included. It was a great feedback. Have a nice day!

Echo what everyone else has said - this really is a fantastic hotel run by great people. My wife and I brought my parents here as a treat for their 60th birthdays and all four of us were in agreement that everything about Witt was special. Firstly, the area it is in, Cihangir is superb - fairly central and with some lovely cafes and bars (plus a massive hill to the hotel to work those calories off!). In terms of the hotel itself - really superb value in a city that actually isn't that cheap. We've stayed in similar hotels at three times the price and as well as the rooms being very spacious and tastefully decorated, the breakfasts are great and the service first class.

The staff (Murat especially!) went out of their way to make us feel at home and I guess that is what really sets the place apart - very friendly, very helpful.

All in all an unforgettable trip to a magical city, totally enhanced by Witt. Oh, and Galatasaray have got two new fans based in Newcastle!

Great stuff.

Happy birthday for your parents and we are really proud to have a role in making the birthday memorable. Cihangir is really a great place not only for tourist but for locals as well. ıt has become a meeting point for writers, artists and local movie stars.
We say hello to Newcastle and hope Alan Shearer could turn things around.
Bye,
Tuncel- GM

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
