First, let me say that Istanbul is a safe and beautiful city to visit. The recent political unrest is not evident, unless you go looking for it around the Taksim Square area. And, in the Square, as of my review there is nothing to worry about. My advice: Do not put off a trip to Istanbul due to news media coverage. Follow the advice of your State Department and do not be influenced by the CNN video loops and news coverage.
If you are planning a trip to Istanbul I highly recommend the Neorion Hotel. The Hotel rooms are spacious, well air-conditioned, and quite comfortable. The facility itself is lovely. the best feature of the Neorion is the view from their roof-top terrace. Truly, the view from the Neorion Terrace provides you with the best view of the Old City of Istanbul. At sunset, it is truly spectacular.
So, what makes the Neorion stand out from the others? The service and the staff. The staff put the customer first and do everything possible to make your trip to Istanbul as nice as possible. You cannot go wrong staying at this hotel! You will feel most welcome and sad to say goodbye to the staff, that feel more like new friends.
