Expert Review

Although the brother and sister duo of Tuncel Toprak and Seçil Erdoðan had never run a hotel before, when they opened the Witt Istanbul Hotel in 2008 they got everything right on their first try. Instead of choosing a space in the touristy Sultanahmet district or Taksim Square, they bought a building in cozy Cihangir, a lively mix of cafés, bohemian apartments, and cool little boutiques. Its spacious rooms, designed by the local studio Autoban, display a funky mélange of bathrooms of gray Italian marble, well-stocked kitchenettes of mirrored French tiles, and modern Scandinavian wooden rocking chairs. The 17 suites combine all the best characteristics of a loft  apartment with those of a hotel, including Molton Brown bath amenities and panoramic views of either Istanbul’s old city (on the lower floors) and the Bosphorus and Golden Horn, from the fourth floor and higher. 2010 Smart Luxury Award winner
