Witt Istanbul Suites is every inch the ultra-modern contemporary-design boutique hotel – sophisticated, modern suites with views overlooking the Golden Horn and Galata Tower. Formerly an ad agency HQ, it is located near to the central business district, as well as some of the best shopping, dining and nightlife in this modern quarter. The design is by Autoban, the local design firm that’s responsible for quite a lot of the contemporary-style interiors you’ll see around town. Their look for the Witt is modernist-inspired but also lush and luxurious, space-age lines expressed in rich textures of wood and leather and in many places they have used their own furniture designs, thus avoiding the off-the-shelf look of some hotels.
There are 18 suites, each one outfitted with apartment-style comforts, including living rooms and kitchens as well as standards like flat-screen entertainment centres.
Cihangir is very central and quietly exciting, an enclave of funky cafés, restaurants and boutiques - the place to be seen, to shop and to dine out.
