Stayed 4 nights. We wanted a hotel with Bosphorous views in or around Beyoglu/Taksim and walking distance to the tram to take us to Sultanahmet where all the historic sites are. We picked this area because it is less touristy than Sultanahmet and has great dining.
Witt has three rooms on the 6th floor that have the views, of which #61 is the best. It is a corner room (very large) with outstanding views of Bosphorous. They will serve breakfast at no addtional fee in your room - take the offer. The room is very modern.
We could only stay 2 nights in #61 as it was booked during the last two days of our stay. We switched to the Grand King on the 3rd floor (#31). This is as big as #61 but without the view. Otherwise it was fine (and cheaper too!).
The breakfast is standard, but quite good. They have a Nespresso machine in the rooms as well for those who enjoy a good coffee.
Keep in mind that it is half way up a hill and so is a stiff climb from the nearest tram station (Tophane). If you are not up to it, consider taking a cab back to the hotel.
- 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
