loved location and amenities
Posted Aug 15, 2011
we stayed in two hotels in Istanbul, two nights in the old city, Sultanhamet, and two nights at the Witt in the newer,hip part of Istanbul. the Witt has spacious, modern rooms with beautiful furnishings and most importantly, great air conditioning. our room had a partial view of the Galata Tower as well. the room was quiet and there is a very nice minibar with complementary tea. the marble bathroom has Molton brown bath products, and the shower is amazing with 5 shower heads. A full Turkish breakfast is included. the staff was young and very helpful. They gave honest opinions and great recommendations for restaurants. The area around the Witt is fun for exploring on foot. There are amazing antique and art shops, restaurants and tea houses within walking distance and the Istanbul modern is close by. we paid more for our hotel in the Sultanhamet district and received much less value...on second thought we would now stay at the Witt for the entire time and take the tram to the tourist sites in the old city.
