“Excellent hotel on a very steep street”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

The Witt is a very nice and friendly hotel across the bridge from the Golden Horn and old town. Our room was massive and extremely comfortable. The bathrooms were well laid out with a nice shower and vanity. There were many restaurants and things to do nearby, and it was a relatively quick trek downhill to the tram. One word of warning is that the street it is on is extremely steep, which causes a lot of problems for cars and taxis that try to climb and stop on it. It is also a bit of a hike back up to the hotel from the tramway after a long day.

Great rooms and a great location. Just one tiny problem, the steep hill you have to climb
to return to the hotel after a day of sight seeing. Other than that, I would stay there again
in a heart beat. Staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms are very large with great views.
Breakfast is also excellent. I hope to see them again.

Room Tip: The high floor deluxe rooms are the best.

We stayed five days in Istanbul and found Witt Istanbul Suites a real 'home from home'. Situated in a charming part of the town and with easy tramway access to the major sites, we found its location perfect. The staff was very helpful, the breakfast buffet perfect and the rooms large and with all amenities (including complementary Nespresso).

Room Tip: we stayed in room 21.

Great location, great service, great people, great atmosphere...
Enjoyed it so much that I would recommend to anybody I know.
The rooms are huge and the view is breathtaking ( see photos attached)
A huge part of what made us love this stay at the Witt is thanks to Anil & Ali at the reception.... They gave me excellent ideas and advices, they made all the reservations cleverly organized. They knew which evening they should book...
The area is quiet ( no prayer can be heared at 5AM...!) and very charming a bit " bohème" but very close to everything.
We had the chance to sleep in the Panoramic Roof Top Room.... and It is probably the best room I ever slept in in term of quality/design/calm ...

Room Tip: tried the panoramic roof top ( best angle for the view, no building in front of it) and the superior...

Maybe not a fair comparison since we had stayed at the four seasons sultanahmet during the first part of our trip to turkey, but we much preferred staying right in the old part of the city near the major sites.

This was our first time in Istanbul and, after quite a bit of research, we picked the Witt Istanbul Suites. We had a room on the fourth floor with awesome views over the sea and the city. The room was very spacious, clean and well equipped and the décor was very cool.

The hotel is on the quiet side of the city, just over the Galata Bridge, but with easy access to all the sights by foot or tram. The tram is very convenient but leave some energy for the up-hill hike back to the hotel on your return!

The staff were very friendly, incredibly helpful and the service was great. There are 1,000s of restaurants to chose in the city from so we relied on the hotel staff's guidance for dinner each night and every recommendation was brilliant - such as Mikla for a high-end dining experience with stunning views of the city.

Witt is a proper boutique hotel, with the ambiance and personal service to match. Very highly recommended.

Room Tip: The hotel is located in a semi-residential area surrounded by unattractive buildings so book a room...
