“This was a spectacular experience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2009

We recently returned from a vacation in Turkey and stayed at a variety of hotels. In Istanbul we stayed at a five star commercial hotel (a bit out of the way), a luxurious, five star hotel in the Sultanahmet District (wonderful if that area is all you want to see), and Witt Istanbul Suites. The hotel's location in the Beyoglu District is in the heart of the active day and night life of the vibrant city. It is within walking distance of tourist sites, the metro, and the Bosphorus ferries. The old town is no more than 20 minutes away by metro. If taxi cab rides are your thing, they are also readily available on the street in front of the hotel. The hotel is run by a young crew of exceptionally well mannered and informed gentlemen. No matter your age or travel status, they are always there to help. Ask for Hasan (espercially) or Murat or Aykut for expert help offered in english. The rooms are modern and spectacular with views of the Bosphorus to knock your socks off. If you can splurge, ask for one of the two suites on the top (6th) floor. The bathrooms are clean and very "Architectural Digest" modern. Breakfasts come with the room and are nicely presented. As an example of the service, on our last day, we were picked up at the hotel at 6:00 A.M. Hasan had arranged for the kitchen to have a breakfast prepared just for us ready at 5:00 A.M. in the lobby dining area (this is not a 24 hour room service kind of hotel). If intimate, charming, local and friendly are what you want, this is it in spades.

Thank you very much for the detailed feedback. I am very glad that you are happy with the location. It was our dream neighborhood when we bought the hotel's location since even though it were close to the old city and the taksim area , it was still a non touristic district. Making our guests to get a feeling of being insider and local was our aim and that is why I am very happy with your feedback about the neighborhood.
Best regards

We just returned from spending 8 nights at the Witt Suites. We had a fabulous trip and enjoyed the boutique hotel very much. The suites were very spacious and we were upgraded to a river view for our last 5 nights. Rates include free internet and full breakfast (including the fresh orange juice). The beds were very comfortable. The view of the river was wonderful.

The hotel environment was upscale, friendly and very clean! The staff was extremely helpful and friendly...especially Onur Kara. Thanks for your help in planning our days and giving us really good suggestions regarding restaurants, transportation and fun things to do. You really helped make our stay very enjoyable and exciting.

Thank you very much for the detailed review. We used to charge for orange juice in the past ( you can see the negative comments about it in the past reviews ) and after a couple of complaints that it should be free, we are now serving it in the breakfast free of charge. So we are always trying to improve our service based on your comments.

My travel agent said we had to stay here, and tell her if it was as good as advertised.It is, and probably better. We stayed just one night on the way back home from a great vacation, and it was off season (the rates lower after Oct. 1st). I must say though I would probably stay here anytime. We have been in Istanbul several times, but this was our first stay in the new city. Don't miss this part of the city, and this hotel

This hotel was such a pleasure to stay at! The location is great..it is on the European side. You are walking distance to Taksim Sq and other attractions. The area is quiet in the evening so don't worry about sleep.
The room was wonderful! It is a very large room with your own kitchenette, living room, bathroom and bed. You have a nespresso maker which is a great touch. The bed is very comfortable with a great selection of pillow types. The shower is awesome with 6 shower heads..you don want to leave. The free breakfast service is great..they bring it to your room after you choose what you want. You felt as if you were not in a hotel, rather in sombodys home. There are books and movies in the lobby area to take and use. The staff are very friendly and experienced! All in all this hotel is a MUST STAY! I will for sure go back!

Istanbul was our second stop on a 4-stop honeymoon and the Witt was by far the nicest hotel that we stayed in. When we arrived, we were upgraded to the penthouse suite and given a bottle of wine because it was our honeymoon. What a great surprise! The room was absolutely gorgeous. We loved the modern decor, the spacious room, and the amazing view from the balcony. The bathroom was so luxurious, the Molton Brown products were great and the rain shower couldn't be beat! We were so thrilled by the staff as well. They were so courteous and friendly and helped us navigate through Istanbul with ease. One of our favorite amenities of our stay at the Witt was the breakfast. It was absolutely delicious and the best hotel breakfast of all of the hotels on our honeymoon! (We highly recommend the lemon-peel stuffed olives!) The best part about their breakfast is that you can have it delivered to your room so that you can enjoy the view or have it in the lobby so that you can make friends with other guests. We loved this hotel!!!

Istanbul was great outside -- but the room tempted us to stay in. The shower was my favorite anywhere. The room was huge, the bed comfortable, the breakfast delicious, the staff gracious and charming.
NOTE: The hotel provides online directions prior and maps once you get there. USE THEM for taxi drivers. Due to one way streets, this hotel is difficult for taxi drivers to find. It's also an easy walk down to the tram leaving, but returning to the hotel it is a climb, so be warned. The hotel is away from the tourist area, but transportation is relatively inexpensive and easy.

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
