“Fabulous boutique hotel in a great area with very helpful staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

This was my first trip to Istanbul and what a great place to stay! The staff made the trip just perfect! Everything we needed the staff provided! Wonderful breakfast, they made all of our dinner reservations, and they were always willing to point us in the right direction on anything we needed! Our room was a good size with great views of the river! Highly recommended!

Room Tip: We had a nice sized corner room with views of the river!

Last time we stayed in the Sultanahmet area but this time we wanted to be closer to the restaurants and bars on the European side. The Witt is part of Design Hotels which are very good. We had the corner penthouse suite, #61, which is a large and bright room with wall to wall and floor to ceiling sliding glass doors that open wide to a large wraparound balcony. The views are incredible looking over the Bosphorus to the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and Aja Sophia, ferries pass by constantly and the Galata Tower are very close by. It is a fifteen minute walk to Taksim Square and the pedestrian street with the side streets of restaurants and bars is about twenty minutes walk. There is a large glass enclosed shower stall, the bed is very comfortable and bedding of high quality. Breakfast is very good and all the staff are very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend the Witt and will stay here next time we are in Istanbul.

Room Tip: Penthouse suite 61 is well worth the extra cost.

Looks like a great hotel from the lobby/library and bar area. My husband and I were walking through the neighbourhood and were *mildly* lost/exhausted after the steep climb up the road. We stopped in to get a better map and some directions; the young gentleman at the reception desk was extremely gracious, offered us water, some helpful insight on the area, and great directions. If we ever make it back to Istanbul and can afford to, we'd stay here. Thanks again!!

All the many superlative reviews are entirely justified. This is, quite simply, a wonderful hotel in every way. My wife and I stayed for eight days, long enough to discover any flaws, but there were none. I would especially praise the staff, all of whom were consistently helpful and friendly.

This hotel was both very stylish and very comfortable. The staff could not have been more helpful. Breakfast (included) was delicious. The manager told us our room would not have a view, so we were surprised when we ended up with a lovely view of the Bosphorus and Sultanhamet. The location of the hotel is great - it's a very short walk to the Tophane tram station. Walking around the neighborhood is tricky because it is so hilly, but we found the neighborhood to be very hip. My one caution is that the hotel is up a very steep hill, so if you are not fit for a lot of steep climbing, I would say find something closer to the water.

This hotel is awesome. If I ever go back to Istanbul, this is the only place im staying! I really enjoyed our stay here. Firstly its in a quiet street which means you can get a peaceful nights sleep. Secondly the staff were all so friendly and professional. Their recommendations on local sights to see or restaurants to eat at meant we spent less time reading books and reviews online, and more time actually there enjoying the city! The room itself is extremely modern and designed beautifully... probably one of the nicest boutique style hotels I've been to. I just loved coming 'home' to our room each night. The bathroom products they have are great... the little surprises they offer on arrival or when you get back each day (I won't spoil them!) are a lovely touch. We got around using the trams which were really frequent and easier than trying to deal with Turkish taxi drivers. The downhill walk to the stop is only 5 minutes away so really convenient... but be prepared for a steep climb back to the hotel at the end of your day. Let's say our calves got a bit of a workout by the end of our trip! The whole modern part of Istanbul (Beyolgu) is quite hilly so there's no avoiding the inclines/declines, but it's actually a cool party of the city that seems less touristy. The Sultanahemet area was a bit too much, so it was nice coming back to where the hotel was each night and hang with the locals. Lots of little shops and cafes are dotted through the area and walking around was by the far the best way to see it all. After 6 nights here, the same breakfast every day got a little boring but it was still nice. A tip for other travelers... make sure you ask for your cooked breakfasts (ie: scrambled eggs or omelette), because if you don't ask for it yourself, you don't really get offered by the staff there. The other option is you just order whatever you want and get it delivered to your room, but its more enjoyable/comfortable in the meal area downstairs than in your room. Was nice having the free in room breakfast option though! A big thumbs up and thank you to the team at Witt Istanbul.. you made our stay very warm and welcoming!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 33 on the 3rd floor. Had no problems, everything was perfect. Didn't get a cha...

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.

Room Tip: If you want the some of the best views at a reasonable price, take 61.

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
