“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Reserved here following the many positive reviews on tripadvisor. Having stayed for four nights this week I can see why.

The location is perfect for sightseeing, within walking distance are Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern, Topkapi Palace and Blue Mosque (and Grand Bazaar, Spice Market etc.).

Greeting when arriving is great and they take the time to explain everything to you, how to get around, where they are in relation to other sights.

Room itself was spotlessly clean, very comfortable with a great shower.

Spa facility was great with a pool, jacuzzi, sauna and Turkish bath.

All in all great place to stay for a fraction of the price of Four Seasons.

Stayed here 3/21/13-3/27/13 with family and friends. Prior to traveling they sent an email with a "guest folio" link which had all sorts of information about things to do in Istanbul and link where i could request they make reservations for some of these events. They promptly responded to my emails prior to our travel date. Because we were staying more than 3 days, the hotel provided transportation from the airport to the hotel free of charge. The hotel is located in front of the Sirkeci train stop which made getting to all the major tourist attractions easy and inexpensive(3 lira per ride but a pass is also available). Frankly it minimized the use of taxis for our group. The hotel is clean and modern. I cannot say enough about the staff. From the moment we walked in until we departed we felt very welcome, very safe and very secure. After you check in someone from guest relations will sit down with you and give you an "orientation" about Istanbul and nearby areas. Our guest relations person(Sirin) was fabulous. We shared our itinerary with her and she made suggestions as well as reserved taxis and tickets for us to get us started. She was incredibly warm, friendly and thoughtful. Two people in our group were celebrating birthdays and Sirin surprised us when she and the other staff brought out birthday cakes during lunch with singing and a gift. We were greeted every time we walked back into the hotel, the staff seemed to genuinely care, right down to the housekeepers. The hotel serves free breakfast and lunch(lunch is until 7 pm). The experience with this hotel from the moment we made reservations up until we departed Istanbul was nothing short of excellent!!!!!

Room Tip: The triple room is much bigger then the twin room.

For anyone wanting a hotel with a bit more character and personal service that the big multi-nationals I can thoroughly recommend the Noerion Hotel. Great situation for the historic parts of the city and near the tramway to get to other parts of the city. Room clean and spacious (Deluxe) and the staff always extremely helpful. There is no restaurant in the hotel but there are many nearby. Breakfast and afternoon mezze good.

Room Tip: The higher the floor the better.

The Neorion is a very nice hotel.....located close to many of the historic attractions in Sultanahmet. This hotel is spotless, great job by the cleaning staff. The concierge goes out their way to be helpful. Just a block or two from the Sirkeci tram stop.

When you arrive, you are made to feel welcome. You are asked to have a seat in the "living room," a beverage, and an orientation. Wow. The breakfast is so much more than just a continental breakfast, and they serve meze every afternoon....you'd hardly have to go out to dinner if you didn't want to.

We had a family room. The beds were comforable. The rooms are nice, clean, but not necessarily luxurious, if that is what you are looking for. We had no view...a wall....and the thermostat in our room didn't seeem to function.

Overall, I would recommend this hotel for it's service, and location.

We stayed for a couple of nights at Neorion and was the best hotel in our trip by far.
Location: just 3 blocks from Gulhane tram station which was perfect since we came from the airport by train/tram. Plus, it's a short walk from major landmarks such as Ayasofya and Topkapi palace.
Service: we were greeted like kings and offered a beverage and something to eat while they took care of the check in. Meanwhile, a girl from customer relations came with a map to explain all things to do in the city. This is something I've never seen in any hotel and should be imitated.
Room: big and spacious with nice wooden floors and king bed. The bathroom worked perfectly and had everything you needed. There was a safe in the room and worked just right. Very clean and a plus that it had water heater to make some coffee or tea before going to bed.
Breakfast: a great selection of hot and cold food with some great turkish tea and coffee.

One evening we found a gift in our room - box of turkish delight. A simple and not expensive gift but really a very nice touch and makes you feel more than welcome as a guest. We were going to Capadoccia and then going to a nearby hotel and they offered to store our luggage and move them to the other hotel which was fantastic for us.

We couldn't be more pleased with the choice of hotel and well deserves the number 1 in the city. Best service and location!!

Great location, close to all the attractions in the historical part, and easy to get to modern Istanbul.
Neorion's interior is unmistakably Istanbul, yet modern and tasteful, no tacky, false oriental decorations in sight. Rooms are really nice, although on a smaller side. Bathroom clean, modern, with high quality fittings, great shower.
Staff is extremely friendly, helpful, professional: managed to get us reservations in a very popular and overbooked restaurant, advised us when to use taxi and when to rely on public transport, even left a small gift for us when we were leaving!
If you are planning a trip to Istanbul, I highly recommend Neorion.
