Witt Istanbul Hotel
he modern interiors created by Turkish firm Autoban are attracting design aficionados to the new 17-room hotel. Laser-cut floral motifs, reflective subway tiles, and unusual furnishings (like a pumpkin coffee table) add whimsy to the loftlike 600-square-foot rooms. Best of all is the surrounding neighborhood: Cihangir, an olive’s toss from Beyoglu’s busy restaurants and nightlife.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
