Looking for a very pleasant hotel? The Witt Istanbul was excellent. Central for most good restaurants and sightseeing. The very friendly staff is helpful with directions and happy to book you a table in popular restaurants. Simple but delicious and complete breakfast in the stylish lobby or in bed. The bed is amazing, firm but very very good. From the amazing bed to the amazing five head rain shower (sorry for spoiling water). All that in a beautiful designed spacious room (around 60m2). Design by Autoban, also responsable for the design of many nice restaurants. So a suite for the price of a room. Excellent.

My partner and I stayed at the Witt over Easter and absolutely loved our stay. We were lucky enough to book the penthouse suite and the views over the Bosphorus and city were absolutely stunning. Having breakfast each morning on our own private terrace with that amazing view was an unforgettable way to start each day. The room was very spacious with floor to ceiling windows to take in the amazing vista. We also loved the way the room was furnished. Very funky but also very comfortable as well. The staff were very helpful and provided some great recommendations for dinner. The hotel booked dinner for us at late notice at two really popular restaurants but we still managed to get almost the best table in the house on both occasions. I would particularly recommend 5 Kat which was a short walk towards Taksim square and almost had as good a view as Witt Suites. The location of the hotel is great, walking distance to lots of restaurants and bars in the local area and also close to Taksim Square. The hotel also arranged return transfers from the airport that were competitively priced. All in all loved the stay and hope to return soon.

My husband and I stayed at Witt Istanbul Suites for five nights after having been in the Sultanahmet area for the previous week. What a pleasure it was here from the word go. Our room was lovely - very large, well appointed with a very comfortable bed and of course the six head shower. It was very handy also having the kitchenette which was well stocked with good quality crockery and glassware and everything else you need for a casual dinner in!

For our last night we were upgraded to the penthouse. The wrap around terrace from the penthouse had a 180 degree view over Istanbul and naturally was spectacular. We really enjoyed our last night here, but were equally happy in our original room.

As in previous comments all the staff at the hotel were extremely efficent and very friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble.

The location was also good. Even though it isn't right in the centre of things we thought that this was actually a plus as it meant that it was quiet. But a 5-8 minute walk and you're right in the thick of things.

We travel a lot and both agree that this is one of the better hotels we have stayed in.

As an avid traveller who've been to more than 15 countries and stayed in many of the top hotels, I can safely say this is the best hotel I've ever stayed in. I loved the 6 head rainshower, the modern and spacious design of the rooms and most of all, the friendly staff that made all the difference. I've since realised that Turkish men are the funniest and most entertaining species on earth. When asked what was the delicious smell that permeated the entire hotel, the young owner, Tuncel, promptly replied, oh, it's me. We also had a sneak peek at the penthouse suites and it was just too good to be true. A beautiful terrace with deck chairs for sunbathing in summer! I can't wait to go back! The best part about this hotel is how you can order your buffet breakfast in bed. Most 5 star hotels might offer you a continental or american breakfast in bed but you'll need to get out of the room in order to enjoy the full spectrum of the buffet. That's why Witt Istanbul is the true definition of a boutique hotel. Like what Tuncel said, many hotels call themselves boutique establishments simply because they have little rooms. At Witt Istanbul the staff proportion is almost 1 to each room but when we arrived, 4 attended to us immediately. Unbelievable. Well done everyone!

Witt Istanbul Suites was a great choice. The staff was helpfull. They made all our restaurant arrangements and their recommendations were great. They gave us good advise regarding transportation, shopping, sight seeing, etc. The hotel is small and has only the basic services; but their standards are high and quality is great. Murat and all the other staff were always very attentive and helpfull.
Location was also great. The hotel is located near the tram station and near Taksim square, making access to the old part of town (Sultanahmet) and to the modern part fantastic. Great hotel from which to explore Istanbul.
The suites were large enough to accomodate two adults and two children (with extra beds for each child).

We had a terrific 5 day stay at the Witt. The staff is charming and terrific 99% of the time. One day our room wasn't cleaned and our airport pick up was botched, but the room was fabulous (Room 52 seems the best choice for the view), the breakfast ample and interesting, and the staff couldn't be more hospitable.

However I would recommend that anyone with difficulty walking steep or broken sidewalks reconsider staying here. Unless you're prepared to taxi everywhere and back, there's a difficult climb no matter where you need to go. The modern design of the furniture is also somewhat less than comfortable, though the bed is wonderful. The chairs are not for anyone with a back problem.

So for the young who don't mind hard surfaces and an occasional error by the staff, this is a special place.

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
