“Excellent Service!!!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

My wife and I stayed at this small boutique hotel near Taksim Square. The service was amazing and it was close enough for us to walk to Taksim (about 5 minute walk, all uphill) but was far enough that it we were able to get our rest at night (no noise). The only part I wasn't happy with was that I had expressed to the the concierge that we had heard that getting a Taxi from the airport might be too expensive so instead they set up a private ride from the airport to their hotel and charged us 115TL. Later I found out the ride from the airport was only about 45 to 50TL. Other than that everything was great.

Thank you for your time for sharing your experience. We feel great that we could meet your expectation other than the transfer service. There must have been a misunderstanding about the relative costs of a private pickup service and public yellow cabs. The yellow cabs can accommodate 2 people with luggages or 3 people without hardly any luggage. Our private van can accommodate up to 4-6 people with luggages. So I am assuming you were a group more than 2 which means you needed 2 yellow taxis. If you were a party of 2, then there must have been a misunderstanding obviously since private pickup service is more expensive than yellow cabs all over the world. If there was a miscommunication on our part, I apologize for it.

This review is long overdue. I stayed at the Witt Istanbul Suites for a week in February. The hotel is absolutely wonderful. The rooms (suites) are spacious with so many different amenities. It was so nice to be able to stretch out & enjoy myself in a wonderful hotel. On top of the amazing rooms, the hotel offers a great breakfast. I truly enjoyed the made-to-order eggs each morning. Add to that wonderful service & good Wi-Fi and you've got a great hotel. On top of all of that, the location of the hotel truly assists it in gaining an edge over any hotel in the more touristic locations. Cihangir is a great neighborhood located close to the main action, but just far enough away to provide a sense of seclusion from the hustle & bustle of the city. The only "negative" regarding the hotel's location would have to be the trek up the hill after returning from a long day of sightseeing. The grade is fairly steep & you really need to take your time to keep from getting winded. The hill is, however, manageable when you consider there is a tram stop right at the bottom that can take you to all areas of the city. The Witt is a great hotel that makes Istanbul an even better experience than it already is.

Our son stayed at the Witt two years ago and insisted that we do the same. We were glad we took his advice. The design of this impeccable boutique hotel is both uncluttered and imaginative. The rooms -- or suites -- are large, clean, and comfortable, and the bathrooms sport high-end finishes. We especially liked the whimsical Mr. Witt, the red-jacketed elevator operator who hoists the elevator from floor to floor. An assortment of fruit, meats, cheeses, breads, yogurts, and cereals are served in the stylish but relaxed lobby each morning, and omelets are made to order. We also made frequent use of the Apple computer in the lobby.

During our six-night stay, the staff -- and especially the three gentlemen who manned the front desk -- advised us on restaurants, secured our taxis, and answered numerous questions about the city. The entire staff was always welcoming and helpful; they made us feel right at home.

Finally, the hotel is well-located in Cihangir -- an artsy neighborhood across the Golden Horn from the major sites. Cafes, bars, and restaurants are a block or two away, the tram to the Sultanahmet area is at the bottom of the hill, and Taksim and Istiklal Street -- a major pedestrian shopping avenue -- are easily reached on foot. But for a real thrill, take a Turkish taxi. You will never be the same.

Room Tip: If it is available, book Room 61 on the top floor. It is a corner room, with a large wrap-around ba...

First the location. As for us, it is definitly better to stay there than in the touristic center which is crowded and noisy, and for tourists only.
The area of the hotel is very nice, with lots of shops and restaurants very authentic and friendly. The main attractions are at 10 min direct by tram - very convenient and with a high frequency.

As for the hotel, we stayed in 2 different rooms, one in the corner, one on the top with a terrace. Both of them were just fantastic.
The personnel did all what they could to give us the best room available. If you can, do try to have a room on the corner, as they have the best view.
Some rooms might not have any view, but in any case they are spacious and very clean.

The personnel gave us some good advice on restaurants without being too directive, and tried to give some non touristic adresses.

It is definitly a hotel and a neighbourhood we recommend.

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
