We thought that this hotel was AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING. Recommend it fully to anyone who wants to stay in central Istanbul. It is an easy walk (downhill) to the tram which within 5 minutes will take you to old Istanbul with the spice markets, bazaars, and mosques (note on the way back from the tram there is a steep hill to walk up although there are these types of hills a lot in Istanbul going from old town to new town). The hotel is only a 10 minute walk to the new Istanbul where all the good bars and restuarants are too. The road the hotel is on is not the prettiest, however a short walk up it takes you to some really nice little cafes/bars.
The hotel itself is gorgeous - it has a real 'boutique' feel. Look forward to the lift in the hotel its cool. The rooms are really big and we think that the pictures on some of the travel websites don't do them justice. The huge bed is so luxorious, thre is an ipod system, TV with all channels, and the most amazing shower! Quite literally the best shower expereince ever (the molton brown shower gel and hand cream is a lovely touch!). The hotel upgraded us to the penthouse suite for our final night there as it was our honeymoon, which was very sweet. The penthouse is unbelievable - just the view. Floor to ceiling windows along two walls and a wrap around balcony make it a very special place to watch the sun set over Istanbul. Apart from the balcony, which makes the penthouse well worth staying in, we thought our suite was probably a nicer room and interestingly the shower in the penthouse suite wasn't a patch on the one in our suite.
Finally, the staff at Witt Istanbul Suites are amazing - really sweet, helpful and friendly. Aykut and Onur offered us lots of advice on where to go, were really friendly and chatty but also really professional. We look forwrd to staying here again sometime in the future.
- 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
