This is my first review ever in this website, although I'm a frequent traveller (essencially at leisure) and I have been to more than twenty different countries in Europe and Americas in the last ten years. I usually stay at 4 stars rated hotels or equivalent small boutique hotels. In general, even if I had appreciated very much the hotel I had stayed in, I usually forgot to write a review or never found the right time to do so.
This time, however, I decided to inaugurate my "review writing activity" specially due to this excellent experience I had at the Witt Istanbul Suites. I spent 5 days at this hotel and everything was pretty much perfect.
The room is spacious, well appointed, clean, modern and spotless. The same can be said of the bathroom. The multi-head shower is indeed great! Nice bedsheets and towels. Everyday the personnel left two delicious muffins in the room (this type of thing, although far from being indispensable, always reinforces my impression of being given a kind and attentive treatment). Wi-fi worked well.
Location is very good, a 5 to 10 minute walk from the nearest tram station (through a steep street), and maybe a 15 to 20 minute walk to reach Istiklal Street.
Breakfast, included in the rate, is good, although I believe the hotel should offer different options of items each day... maybe changing the selection of cheeses, juices, breads, jams, so that having breakfast would be a different experience every day for those staying a considerable number of nights at the hotel.
The personnel is simply outstanding: always nice, attentive, polite, and willingly ready to be of help all the times we needed some information or assistance of any kind. Adding to it, they had always a friendly and warm smile to offer to us, which is something very much valued and appreciated by me, but not so easily found at hotels around other European countries.
- 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
