My husband and I just returned from a 4-night stay at the Witt and were pleased with every aspect of our stay/
We stayed in Room 51, which I would highly recommend as the layout is ideal and the view is spectacular. The rooms are spacious and the separate living area is an added benefit. The wetbar is beautiful and fully kitted out with a mini fridge and all the service ware you could need. The attention to detail and the design aspects of the room are also incredible. The folks who designed this hotel and its rooms left no stone unturned. Bathroom was also gorgeous - complete with a multi-head shower and heated floors (swoon).
The breakfast served in the lounge was generous. Complete with the standard Continental yogurts, cereals, pastries, meats and cheeses, the spread also included several local specialties of salads, olives, simit, and other items. The staff would also prepare eggs to your specification upon request.
The location of the hotel itself is fantastic. Away from the main tourist area of the Old City, the Witt is in a much hipper and stylish hood with lots of young people, boutiques, bars, and restaurants. The tram that will take you into Sultanahmet is just down the hill from the hotel - a five minute walk at best. Of course that means you'll have to walk up the hill when you come back at the end of the day. The hotel does not have a gym but, after walking back to the hotel up the hill, you won't even miss it.
The staff at the Witt are extraordinary. Ali in particular was a standout as he answered every single one of our questions graciously and expeditiously. The restaurant recommendations he made to us were spot on (definitely try Journeys and Ciya Sofrasi on the Asian side) and he went out of his way to help us secure a coveted table at Lokanta Maya for our last night. Ali and the rest of the staff at the Witt really helped to make our stay very special.
Definitely looking forward to returning!
- 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
