The Witt Suites is a very stylish hotel but maintains a warm and friendly atmosphere, all the staff are only too happy to assist you and make your arrangements as hassle-free as possible. The room was very well equipped with a kitchen area and lots of nice little touches like a fondue kit. The breakfast was fine, the options aren't huge but with only a few rooms I wouldn't have expected a massive spread as seen in the several hundred room hotels - the real bonus is that it runs until 11, perfect for lazy mornings! We were especially pleased that they arranged us a breakfast at 5.30am on the morning of our departure.
One thing to bear in mind however is that access from the hotel to the public transport is a really steep but not very well paved road, so if you have walking difficulties it would be necessary to use cabs, which are plentiful enough.
Location-wise there are lots of good restaurants and cafes nearby and it's close to the tram link. The hotel is lovely and calm as the city is so bustling and busy so makes a great place to head back to after a day's sightseeing. There's also a selection of recent DVD releases to watch in the room.
I would recommend using the hotel's car for airport transfers - we used Ataturk airport but the taxi from there was terrifying and the driver didn't know where he was going, however the hotel's driver only cost 5 Lira more (approx £2.50) and drove more sensibly.
The hotel will always be special as my boyfriend proposed in our room!
- 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
