The Witt Istanbul Hotel is a small boutique hotel with about 18 suites. Located in the Cihangir neighbourhood, it is walking distance to Beyoglu, Taksim, Galata, and Karakoy. You can also walk to Nisantasi and Besiktas fairly easily if you enjoy long walks. If you are taking the train, it is a short but steep walk from the Tophane stop.
The hotel accommodations are suites with a kitchenettes (stove plate, fridge, microwave, and dishes), which is convenient. The suites are modernly decorated, very clean, comfortable and convenient. I think the floor tiles in the bathroom are even heated, which is a nice feature. The staff are super friendly and helpful; we arrived very early in the morning and were invited to have breakfast, in addition to being able to check-in a little early (while we didn’t expect this, and even if it wouldn’t have been possible, we would have been just as satisfied). Breakfast is included and it is very tasty, fresh, and healthy; there are Turkish, European, and North American options. We enjoyed the simit, fruit salad with pomegranate, local cheeses, and the cinnamon Turkish coffee. Most of the food is locally sourced and organic; bonus!
We were on the 2nd floor and enjoyed our room after long days of exploring. We were able to stand on the Juliette balcony and enjoy an okay view; next time, we will get a Bosphorous view terrace suite. What we liked the most about the Witt Istanbul Hotel is how you feel like you are living in Cihangir due to the way the suite is laid out and the quaint and interesting neighborhood it is located in. Staying here made it easy for us to walk to Orhan Pamuk’s Museum of Innocence, Datli Maya, Van Breakfast, Karakoy, and wander the streets of Beyoglu. Since we love walking in Istanbul so much, we even wandered to Besiktas, which took about 40 minutes.
While we have stayed at other hotels in Istanbul, The W and Crowne Plaza, we enjoyed our stay at the Witt the most due to the comfort of the accommodations the neighbourhood it is located in, and the friendly staff; we will definitely stay at the Witt next time we are in Istanbul.
- 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
