“Fabulous little hotel”
Reviewed October 8, 2012 via mobile

We stayed here 4 nights. 2 nights on arrival in Turkey and 2 nights after 8 day tour. We loved the hotel and it felt like home after our tour. Staff were very attentive and were very helpful with dinner bookings and each time made excellent recommendations.
Hotel is on the tram line and this makes getting around Istanbul very easy.
Really liked the decor of the public areas. Will definitely recommend to friends.
Could easily walk to spice markets and Grand Bazaar and to many other points such as palaces and Blue Mosque.

Stayed October 2012, traveled as a couple

We had a wonderfull 2 night stay here. Everyone was so nice and helpful before and after our arrival. We were a little disappointed in the size of our room and the high tub side made it hard to get in for a shower. Our friends stayed in 601 and it was fabulous. The rooftop terrace provided a great place for drinks at sundown. The breakfast was extensive and delicious. Over all a wonderful place

There are so many great reviews for this hotel that you wonder whether the reality will live up to the expectation, but it does and even more!
There's an initial personal emai following your online booking; a welcome drink on arrival together with an explanation of where you are and how to get to where you want to visit and they were happy to book and print tickets each morning on line so we didn't have to queue; modern well appointed rooms with tea/coffee making facilities; comfy beds, great pillows and safe. Close enough to walk to the spice market and Bosphorus for a great evening river trip in the one direction and up to the 'sights' the other way including Topkapi, Blue Mosque and Santa Sophia, and a little further was the main bazaar (huge).
There was a free running mezze from lunchtime to 6pm and a complimentary glass of wine on the roof terrace to watch the sunset. Really nice touches. The pool in the basement was great together with the Turkish Bath marble area. Breakfast buffet was good with chatty daily newsletter. . No restaurant in the hotel but plenty just close by - mix of local and tourist.

There's free wifi and a couple of PCs with WiFi near the breakfast area for general use.
All the staff were lovely; especially Elfan who looked after us so well.
We look forward to returning to the Neorion - probably one of the nicest hotels we've stayed in across the world. Thank you.

Room Tip: The deluxe rooms have a balcony

Friendly, professional and very helpful staff make this a hotel that is a pleasure to stay in. The main reason to visit Istanbul - a wonderfully vibrant city - is to see the historical attractions eg., Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar and their all within easy walking distance of the Neorion so makes the visit easy as well as enjoyable. Our room was good size with larger than average en-suite, complete with large shower and extremely clean. In-room tea & coffee making is always nice too. The staff gave us a warm welcome and talked us through a City map showing us exact locations of all the main sights including how best to get there. The sun-set complementary drinks on the extensive roof terrace were gratefully received too!

Room Tip: Top two floors; 5th & 6th are better as higher from street, although it is only a side street bu...

A beautifully designed small hotel in a great location in walking distance to all the main tourist sites. We arrived late afternoon and were welcomed with a drink and mezes. Then given a map with an overview of what to do and see. It was also the only hotel in our 3 week trip that confirmed our booking via email with a list of websites attached that related to Istanbul. The rooms were modern and well appointed with an ottoman influence. The beds were comfortable and the pillows were like sleeping on a cloud! The complimentary Turkish delight on the coffee table was a nice touch.
It was also very close to the ferries which can take you to the Asian side, a very cheap way to see the Bosphorous and the sea of Marmara. The breakfast was lovely with a little newsletter each morning providing information on different events and places to eat. The free glass of wine on the roof top terrace is a wonderful way to take photos of the setting sun. If you're staying more than 3 days I recommend the Museum pass which gives you access to quite a few museums and the Hagia Sophia and also lets you jump the queue. This was well worth it for the Hagia Sophia because the queue was about well over 100 metres long at 10am! (It was a Sunday).
Overall the Neorion lived up to the reviewsand the staff were excellent. They even gave us a parting gift. Great experience.

We stayed a week in this hotel and the staff, the service, and the cleanliness of the hotel were beyond compare. On my birthday three of the front desk staff came to our room with a beautiful cake, a gift, and singing Happy Birthday. It made my day. The staff bent over backwards to make sure we were satisfied with their service and any of their affiliated restaurants. We would recommend The Neorion to anyone who appreciates a five star hotel at a reasonable price.

Room Tip: We had a room at the back of the hotel and there was no noise at all. Didn't hear the early mor...
