Having met in Turkey we wanted to return for our 25th wedding anniversary. Originally I had intended to book the Tom Tom Suites but I'm glad it was fully booked and that we found this little gem instead. We requested an airport pick up and were met efficiently and delivered to the hotel. We were happy with our large suite but within half an hour were offered a room on the top floor; who wouldn't swap to a room with a terrace and the most amazing view over the river to Sultanhamet . We were in room 62, not the corner suite but the one next door.
We loved everything about the hotel, the service was first class, the room large and well furnished and the position was excellent. Much has been written about 'the hill' but middle aged and unfit as we are we didn't find it too challenging and there are ways to avoid it; cabs are cheap but you could also take the tram to the end of the line and then get the tunnel to Taksim Square and walk down. There are plenty of restaurants, coffee shops and amazing patisseries within walking distance but definitely ask the advice at the front desk about restaurants; they got us a table at Mezze by Lemon Tree at short notice and it was wonderful.
For us who like to be independent and like small hotels with a bit of individuality this was a great place to stay; if you want swimming pools, gyms, business centres then there are plenty of big name hotels which would suit you better but when we go back to Istanbul, as we will because its fantastic, the Witt Suites will be our first choice.

- 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
