“Very pleasant hotel in a great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

The first thing that strikes you about the Neorion is how friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable their staff is. They are truly happy to assist and they begin trying to make your stay comfortable with cheerful, informative, e-mails before you arrive. The location is great, just a short walk to the Golden Horn and all of the Sultanahmet sights. Our suite was comfortable, though of an odd shape, long and thin. There was a plumbing problem while my family was there, making for an unpleasant smell, but the staff offered to put us in two rooms (no other suites were available) for no additional charge. The breakfast buffet was great and there are good dining options within a short walk from the hotel.

Highly recommended hotel right in the middle of Istanbul. Everything in sultanahmet is within 10 mins walk, and 1 minute to the tram to take you anywhere else.
Very helpful and friendly staff who spent time at the beginning talking you through directions and opening times of all the attractions.
Rooms spacious, new and very clean. Beds were very comfortable.

Great selection at breakfast, and a really good mid afternoon free meze.
Definitely deserves place at top reviewed hotel in Istanbul!

The reception, the hospitality , the comfort, cleanliness and services at the Neorion are remarkable. Everything is done efficiently to make your stay memorable. Even before you arrive, the first signs of an exceptionnal reception is there. The hotel offers a free transfert from the airport, sends a personalized guestfolio with suggestions of activities , restaurants and asks whether they can do anything to prepare your stay.

As soon as you get to the hotel ( smooth Transfert ) you almost feel at home with friends.
The room is very comfortable, breakfast generous and delicious, a massage in the hammam is a must and the small swimming pool and sauna are just fine.

All this is within walking distance of all the major sites to visit in Sultanhamet , Blue mosque, Sophia, Topkapi etc..

The kindness and availability of the staff is exceptional . They had organized Istanbulkarts and museum passes for us , which saved us much time , especially on a short week end break. They also booked tickets for a dance show and reserved tables in restaurants , met all our demands with efficiency and kindness.

We particularly appreciated the kind attention of reception staff , 3 or 4 of them always ready to help and managing somehow to answer mutiple guests demands at the same time and always with a smile.
A special thank to Ezgi who welcomed us and saw us leave and to our breakfast waitress who taught us each morning a few turkish words.

The extras that really made the difference : the hotel little “news of the day “ placed on your breakfast table daily , which gives you weather forecast, a few turkish words and info on touristic sites and activities. The loukoums in the room; the mezzes available free of charge from 1pm to 7pm, and the last kind attentions, much appreciated.

Many many thanks for a superb stay. We will be back! It is with great pleasure that we recommend this hotel. Congratulations and warm regards to the whole team at The Neorion.

Room Tip: all rooms do not have a good view. If this is important to you ask the staff for a romm with a view.

There millions of reasons that Neorion is Number ONE. I really enjoyed my stay at Neorion.
They picked me up free of charge from the airport. The reception was really warm and welcoming.
Rooms are SUPER clean and modern. The location is perfect.
I had to extend my stay couple of times and they were very accommodating. Only one night in between I had to stay at a hotel nearby but in order to compensate the trouble Neorion upgraded rest of my stay to a bigger room. The breakfast counter is filled with lots of variety for different appetites. I addition to that you get a complimentary Meze/Snacks bar from 13h till 19h.
Anything you need just ask the friendly people at the hotel. I have never seen friendlier or politer than them. I will definitely recommend Neorion and am looking forward to return to Neorion soon.

Room Tip: Buy Istanbul Card for economy traveling and use of public transport. Book for massage and hamam...

This hotel may not have a big lobby or oversized rooms, but it does have an oversized sense of great customer service. From the free breakfast each morning to the hot and cold items served all afternoon to the friendly staff that looks after every need imaginable.
The location is superb. You can walk to virtually every hot spot in Istanbul within 10 minutes.
Don't like to walk? then grab a tram just a few blocks from the hotel. One of the best I have stayed at in over 50 years.

This hotel is terrific, set in the area historic parts of instanbul you are walking distance to all the sites. We were greated very kindly by the hotel staff, they took us through all the relevant sites and attractions. Because of the proximity of this hotel we saw in one day the Hagia Sophia; Blue Mosque; Grand Bizarre; TopKapi Palace and the Suleymaniye Mosque. Regretfully we didn't make it to the Basilica Cistern, but that too is close to the Neorion.

We had a room with one king bed. The room as a decent size, Bathroom was a little small but clean, shiney and white.

All in all this hotel deserves it's continued #1 rating in my opinion. When we return to Istanbul, we will definitely stay here.
