With so many great reviews of Witt Istanbul Suites, I don't want to repeat all the things that have already been said. All of them a true - the rooms are beautiful and spacious, the service is great and the staff are really good at giving advice about restaurants and bars in the area, the breakfast is above average. Actually, the only bad thing I can say about this hotel is the size of the bathrooms - ridiculously small, you'd think a hotel where all the rooms are "suites" would have decent sized bathrooms, but that is not the case. They're tiny. The rain shower is great though.
Many reviewers have mentioned that the hotel is located on a steep hill, but I didn't realize how steep untill I got there. Deffinetly not a good choice for people with mobility difficulties. Of course, it's possible to avoid the up-hill climb if you walk down the hill to the tram station when leaving the hotel, and walk from Taksim square on your way back to the hotel. Other than that, the Witt is in a great location, although I'm not sure I'd recommend it for a first trip to Istanbul. I've been to Istanbul many times and I wanted to stay in Cihangir as it's a really "authentic" neighborhood (there are actually more locals than tourists in the restaurants and bars - something you won't find in a lot of the touristy parts of the city), but I do think that for a first visit staying in the Old city would be better.
- 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
