“Good hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Good hotel, in great area. Very friendly and professional staff.

I booked 2 rooms, King Panoramic with Terrace and Queen Panoramic with Terrace, both on the 6th (top floor) of the hotel. We are a family of 4 and stayed for 5 nights.

The King room and its bathroom were spacious. The Queen room was reasonably sized but had a very "tight" bathroom.

Important to note that these rooms do not have kitchenette's. They only have coffee stations - as described on the hotel website. It's easy to misunderstand that the top rooms in the hotel would have the kitchenette's like some other rooms, but they don't.

Breakfast was good - but exactly the same every day. So can get boring.

Whilst the hotel and service is great, don't expect 5-star service like welcome drinks, chocolates with the turndown service, daily fruit, ... It's not in that league.

As other reviewers have indicated, the proximity to the tram station is great but the steep (very, very steep) hill on the way back from the station to the Hotel is not for anyone that's even a little unfit.

The free wifi at the hotel was excellent. Emails to the hotel prior to arrival were promptly replied to. The pre-arranged airport transfer service was efficient.

By far the most pleasant hotel stay I've ever had. A few close friends and I went to Istanbul for 6 days on a joint 30th birthday trip, and going home to the Witt Istanbul Suites was the perfect end to each day.

The hotel offers all of the amenities of a larger, more expensive hotel with about 1,000x the charm. It was well-decorated, clean, and in a beautiful, quaint neighborhood. The front desk staff knew all of our names after the first day, and they were incredibly helpful in suggesting restaurants, hammams, etc., making reservations, calling cabs, etc.

The complimentary breakfast was amazing as well :)

We saw a lot of Istanbul, and I think this hotel was in the perfect location for visitors. Not only were we a short drive from any of the destination neighborhoods in the city, we were a 5 minute walk from the Tophane tram station, which offered easy access to basically all of the sites in Istanbul.

I can't stress enough how amazing this hotel was, and I strongly suggest that anyone visiting Istanbul, especially for the first time, strongly consider staying here.

My family stayed 7 nights at the Witt Istanbul Suites in early December. The hotel is truly a treasure in all respects. The room is tastefully decorated in contemporary design. It is spacious and has a bar/kitchenette which is well equipped with microwave and basic utensils. It has tea making facilities with ample choice of tea and nespresso coffee machine. The rain shower heads are fantastic and the Molton Brown toiletries are added luxury. Above all else, their service is exemplary. The reception staff is extremely helpful and provides excellent recommendations on restaurants and places to visit. Breakfast can be served in the room. The hotel also helps to order takeaway food at no extra charge. The hotel really makes us feel at home.

The hotel is located within a few minutes walk to the Tophane tram station, which makes most places of interest within easy reach. Although the steep walk uphill on way back to the hotel is a struggle but it is good exercise. it is also within 15mins walk to Taksim Square and nearby vicinities with bustling activities.

Istanbul is beautiful, full of colours, culture and diversity and the hotel is definitely one of the highlights of our trip.

Will highly recommend Witt Istanbul Suites.

Spent a week here during Thanksgiving holiday. The hotel was recommended by friends and we owe them a dinner for it. What a great place. The rooms were spacious, the breakfast buffet fresh and local, the staff so helpful and friendly. Advance emails to arrange airport transportation and other questions were promptly answered by Volcan.

The location is just a short walk to many great restaurants (Mellow, Journey, Colonie). A short walk to Taksim Square and Itikslal Street for shopping. Also, an easy 30 minute walk to Sultanahmet.

Location - check. Friendliness - check. Boutique luxury - check.

When I return to Istanbul this will be the place to stay again.

We stayed at the Witt Istanbul Suites for 4 nights at the end of November. The décor is very modern with spotlessly clean spacious rooms which also have a kitchenette. Ideally situated within easy walking distance to a tram stop where you can easily reach all the main sites. As other reviews have said it is rather a steep walk up uneven pavements from the tram stop, but it is worth it! Don't be put off by the surrounding buildings, as once you get inside the hotel it is gorgeous. The staff at the hotel were fantastic, particularly the reception staff who couldn't do enough for you. They were so helpful and friendly advising of places to eat and visit etc. The hotel was one of the main highlights of the stay and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Istanbul. It's a pity it didn't have it's own restaurant as I'm sure it would be of the same high standard as everything else in the hotel. A perfect choice!

Room Tip: We were on the fourth floor in a King suite and Panoramic King suite and both were very spacious lux...

I found out about Witt through Tripadvisor. Those reviews do help a lot for me to choose Witt as our accommodation. Since I made the booking, the staffs were helping me making restaurant reservations and arranging transportation.
The moment we checked in, we been taken care. Our room got upgraded (thanks it's low season in Istanbul) and we absolutely love the deco and the view in the room. The date we checked in December 3rd was my hubby's birthday. Witt staffs not only chose a wonderful restaurant for the birthday dinner in advance,but also prepared a surprised cake in the room. The night was great and full of joyness. The service is no doubt the best and as I said I felt in love with the deco once I saw it on Tripadvisor. Location is great, 5 mins walking to Tophane tram station(10 mins to old city side),and it's only walking distance to Taksim square! Do ware comfortable shoes cuz you need lots of walking and it's quite hilling in Istanbul!

We stayed there for a good one week
The experience was absolutely amazing
The staff were very helpful
The rooms are spacious
You can order food from a lot of restaurants as they don't have a kitchen
The bathrooms were good
All in all would love to go back there
The location however is not so central it's a good 1 km walk uphill from Taksim so just keep in mind to use a taxi
Other than that a great place

Stayed January 2014, traveled as a couple
