“perfect mix of casual, professional & welcoming”
Reviewed May 11, 2009

the rooms at the witt are beautifully designed, they are the perfect start to a memorable trip. they also present good value for money. the location is perfect in that it is a short (15 min) walk to the galetta bridge or a very convenient short tram ride to all the major sights in the sultahamet. the hotel is on a short but steep section of the road, which was fine for us, but may pose a problem for others, but then a lot of istanbul has short sections of hill to navigate. nothing a child couldnt cope with. the staff at the hotel are fantastic, really friendly and welcoming, one even offered to meet us after work to take us to a club he thought we might not find by ourselves (his map worked perfectly). the breakfasts were to die for, home-made jams and cakes mega-fresh!

Hi,
I am glad you were able to get a feeling of the local life. Istanbul is indeed not as organised as other European capitals so one may find it hard to find an address even with a map. So please make sure you also get additional directions from your friends or hotel such as where it is close to etc. We ( I mean locals) always give directions as " it is close to .... or next to this..."
See you soon, byeee!

Just an amazing hotel. Great staff. Huge, comfortable, stylish rooms. One of the most comfortable hotel beds I've slept in (and I sleep in a lot of hotel beds). Fantastic bathroom, great location, and very good breakfast buffet in the morning.

Rightly so! The number 1 of Istanbul. But because everybody is so overwhelmingly positive, a few remarks. There is no bath, yes the most amazing shower ever seen (Istanbul range of VitrA, by Ross Lovegrove and Molton Brown lotions) but no bath. It was hot during the night, we asked if the airco could be set on, but they said it was only a heater, not an airco. Probably mistaking. The staff is, by the way, perfect. They will help you with every detail, bookings etc. The location: you must be a pretty good walker, because the streets up there are quite hilly. The streetcar is close by.

Hi,
Thank you very much for your feedback and nice comments. I just would like to clarify one point about the Air Condition. It is a central Ac and the system is set to be either on heat mode or the cool mode, therefore the whole system should switch to cool mode alltogether. I am terribly sorry there might be a couple of days between season transitions when some rooms prefer the heat mode and some room prefer the cool mode. We hope to have you back in the future.
Have a nice day!

All the previous reviews are to be believed. Prime location in Beyoglu. And while on a slope, this is not a disadvantage because if you walk downhill you're at Tophane tram station, which is crucial for seeing the sites. And if you choose to go uphill you find yourself at Taksim square very quickly.
Aykut has to the best hotel receptionist/concierge that we have ever come across in our travels (even though he's a Galatasaray supporter! LOL). He was very knowledgeable and offered great tips on the sights, sounds and tastes of the city...just ask him! The rest of the staff was very pleasant and friendly as well.
As for the room, extremely comfortable, a home away from home! And the shower has to be even better than home!
Would definitely stay here again next time we return.

Hi,
Thank you for sharing you comments about the hotel and the location. Cihangir is actually becoming popular among writers, artists and journalists day by day. I will also be moving to the neighborhood this summer! Oleeeyy.

Rooms and feeling of the whole place?Out of the six night stay at Witt,my friend woke up one day feeling ill and as a result we had to stay in most of the day - neither my friend nor I felt like being locked up in a hotel room.We actually enjoyed the well designed spacious suites with all comforts provided like an espresso machine - dvd e.t.c.The staff were all helpful and always with a smile, from the boys at breakfast to the driver who picked us at the airport to Murat and Aykut who were always willing to help out and arranged our restaurant reservations by even attatching guides and maps to our e-mails prior to our arrival. Not to forget - the shower is just great! Will visit again!

If you want to know how cool this place is, listen to its website background music (can anyone tell me who is playing that big fat baritone sax?).

When we entered the room, all we could think was 'damn, how are we going to surpass this on a future city trip..'. Spoilt rotten at Witt Istanbul.

Only after thinking very hard I can come up with a suggestion: raise the rates just enough to make orange juice included at breakfast (it felt a bit silly to pay for it seperately).

Thank you very much for your nice comments. I am also a fan of the tune on our website. I will certainly think about seriously about the orange juice being included. It was a great feedback. Have a nice day!

The super-cool beds with curved headboards and the laptop desks have been especially designed for Witt Istanbul Suites by Autoban.

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
