We spent a fabulous long weekend here in early December. Regardless of what aspect you wish to comment on, this hotel is flawless. From our arrival we were greeted warmly and offered drinks and a chat regarding what we wanted to do that evening. The lobby/breakfast area is beautifully designed in modern decor but is warm and inviting.
The staff - absolutely outstanding. Friendly, and knowledgable, we had some great restaurant experiences by describing exactly the type of place we felt like each evening.
Location - many restaurants are within walking distance as is the main pedestrian street. A short downhill walk will get you to the tram stop - from here you are easily connected to the major tourist sites of Istanbul - minutes to the end of the tram line will take you to Dolmabahce Palace then travelling in the opposite direction you can get to the Mosques, Bazaars, etc. very easily and within minutes. It is extremely easy to navigate by following the tram lines if you choose to walk back to the hotel.
Breakfast - fantastic assortment of cold buffet items as well as eggs if you wish to have a hot breakfast. One morning our waiter suggeted trying a typical Turkish breakfast item which I did, and was told the hotel manager had made it at home. It is these types of special touches which make the hotel so outstanding when compared to most hotels.
The rooms - we found them incredibly spacious and great design features. Many reviewers commented on the shower and it was not disappointing - the best shower ever! Molton Brown products in the bathroom, the design of the shower, sinks and fixtures were gorgeous. The bed was comfortable, linens soft and there was a sizable sitting area with flat screen tv, kitchen and mini fridge for refreshments. We were quite impressed with the stock of in room refreshments including a bottle of Turkish wine that we enjoyed - prices were fairly reasonable as well.
We had a truly memorable stay at the Witt - I honestly don't think we would have experienced as much of Istanbul staying at one of the typical five stars that we were considering before reading the reviews of the Witt. You will not be disappointed!!
- 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
