The Neorion Hotel was like comfort food for the weary body and soul - like coming home after a hard day and having your favorite meal. From check-in and the helpful orientation with Ceyda to our comfortable room and bed, there was an easy and relaxed vibe throughout the hotel. Ceyda and Sirin were the best and most friendly concierges we have ever had the pleasure to meet - always smiling, ready to help or make dinner reservations for us. The front desk staff were also helpful and professional. Then there were the little touches, like the towel elephant that our room attendant left on the bed to cheer us up after a long day of touring...need more pillows, or another blanket...no problem, they were delivered in minutes with a smile. We spent 4 nights there in a superior room on the 6th floor, and it was very quiet, the distant, muffled bells on the passing tram were comforting rather than annoying, and even had a view of the Blue Mosque from our room and balcony, which we were pleases to use one sunny afternoon looking over the rooftops or down at the street life below us. The location is excellent as others have said, perfectly placed to walk to sights in Sultanahmet or to the Spice Market and ferries on the Golden Horn. Do we have any complaints? Softer towels, perhaps, and maybe tea or coffee available in the lobby during the day, but it seems so petty when some much else was perfect. And the bananas and honey along with the rest of the very nice breakfast spread...they were the icing on the cake.
