My friend and I spent 4 nights at the Witt and were beyond satisfied with every element of our stay. The property is conveniently located a short walk from the tram, which was 2 quick stops to the Spice Market. (My only word of advice is to be sure to pack comfortable shoes. The Witt is at the top of a very steep street and I'm really glad that I packed flats.) The neighborhood has numerous lively restaurants also within a short walk. The hotel staff was friendly and accommodating, even preparing a special breakfast for us in advance on the day of our departure because we left before breakfast hours began. The room was a welcome retreat after a long day spent sightseeing with all details of comfort tended to, including coffee and gourmet tea selection at the kitchenette and Molton Brown products in the shower. A friend recommended this place to me and I'm so glad I opted to stay here rather than in the Old City. It offered a perfect balance to my tourist experience of Istanbul.

Lovely design hotel with huge rooms! The staff was incredibly helpful and went out of their way to respond to any queries before and during the trip. The location is great and all main tourist attractions are a short tram ride away. Breakfast buffet was very good with fresh organic ingredients and with no extra charge one could order breakfast to the room by just phoning the reception. I warmly recommend Witt!

The Witt is a very nice and friendly hotel across the bridge from the Golden Horn and old town. Our room was massive and extremely comfortable. The bathrooms were well laid out with a nice shower and vanity. There were many restaurants and things to do nearby, and it was a relatively quick trek downhill to the tram. One word of warning is that the street it is on is extremely steep, which causes a lot of problems for cars and taxis that try to climb and stop on it. It is also a bit of a hike back up to the hotel from the tramway after a long day.

Great rooms and a great location. Just one tiny problem, the steep hill you have to climb
to return to the hotel after a day of sight seeing. Other than that, I would stay there again
in a heart beat. Staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms are very large with great views.
Breakfast is also excellent. I hope to see them again.

Room Tip: The high floor deluxe rooms are the best.

We stayed five days in Istanbul and found Witt Istanbul Suites a real 'home from home'. Situated in a charming part of the town and with easy tramway access to the major sites, we found its location perfect. The staff was very helpful, the breakfast buffet perfect and the rooms large and with all amenities (including complementary Nespresso).

Room Tip: we stayed in room 21.

Great location, great service, great people, great atmosphere...
Enjoyed it so much that I would recommend to anybody I know.
The rooms are huge and the view is breathtaking ( see photos attached)
A huge part of what made us love this stay at the Witt is thanks to Anil & Ali at the reception.... They gave me excellent ideas and advices, they made all the reservations cleverly organized. They knew which evening they should book...
The area is quiet ( no prayer can be heared at 5AM...!) and very charming a bit " bohème" but very close to everything.
We had the chance to sleep in the Panoramic Roof Top Room.... and It is probably the best room I ever slept in in term of quality/design/calm ...

Room Tip: tried the panoramic roof top ( best angle for the view, no building in front of it) and the superior...

Maybe not a fair comparison since we had stayed at the four seasons sultanahmet during the first part of our trip to turkey, but we much preferred staying right in the old part of the city near the major sites.

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
