Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 21, 2013

The Neorion manages to achieve excellence in all major categories. Rooms are modern, comfortable and come with many amenities; the location is near major tourist sites; one airport transport is free; a good buffet breakfast is included at no additional cost; free food is available all day until evening; and a spa-type area with small pool is accessible for free. Finally, but most importantly, the service provided by the staff is excellent. They are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. This hotel has figured out how to make its guests happy, and is highly recommended.

We stayed at the Neorion on two separate ocassions, a week apart - used it as our base in Istanbul. The service and staff are impeccable, cannot fault them on anything - free airport pick-up in both instances went smoothly and without a hitch. The rooms are very spacious and clean, the breakfast is ample, the facilities are fantatsic. Not a budget hotel by any means, but in my opinion very good value for the money. Location-wise it is optimally located in the historic part of town with quick and easy access to all the sites. Enjoyed our stay very much!

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.

We stayed at the Neorion hotel for three nights. We were picked up by a helpful and cheerful driver of the hotel from the airport. The hotel is ideally located to explore grand Bazar, mosques and Palaces. The staff are most helpful, the rooms are clean, big and the beds are comfortable. The afternoon snacks are free and delicious. Undoubtably one of the best hotel we stayed in.

My cousin and I spent 3 nights at the Neorion at the end of March, as a result of reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. It fully justified the rave reviews it has been receiving. We were upgraded to a 6th floor room, with a balcony. Everything you could possibly ask for was supplied - we would just have liked a little more room to unpack, but otherwise it was wonderful. The toiletries in the bathroom were awesome and there was a list of extras you could ask for if you required them. The hotel is situated within easy walking distance of all the major sites and very close to the tram station, from where one could catch the tram to any one of the major destinations and also use it to go quickly and easily to Taksim Square and modern Istanbul. The staff were very helpful and even offered to get an Istanbulkart for the public transport for us if we had any problems. The spa area is very good indeed too. It was too cold to use the terrace while we were there, but we enjoyed the view from our balcony.

Everything about the hotel was great. What stood out the most was the friendliness of the staff. The members of the concierge team proactively helped, printed out schedules and information, patiently showed us where everything was on a map, and checked in with us throughout the trip.

The breakfast and afternoon food provided were delicious and included freshly squeezed orange juice, homemade jams, many kinds fresh bread, fruits, cakes & cookies, and deliciously marinated vegetables.

The pool, sauna and Hamam where clean and comfortable, and there were locker rooms that provided you with a key, slippers, a towel for the sauna, a towel for a shower, and a small towel/rug to stand on when changing.

The location is convenient for both sight-seeing and for exploring the rest of Istanbul, as it is just a couple minutes from the tram and ten minutes from the ferries that go all over Istanbul.

I can't say enough good things about it, but what stood out more than anything else was the sincerely friendly and helpful service.

We just came back from a 3 night trip to Istanbul where we stayed at the Neorion Hotel. This is a perfect example of what a boutique hotel should be like, without the exhorbitant cost. The hotel itself is stylish, comfortable, affordable and perfectly located in the historic centre. Our room on the 6th floor had great views, was really well-appointed and very comfy with a beautiful spacious bathroom. The breakfasts were good, and the afternoon mezes (free of charge) a nice touch. The underground spa was a great place to unwind after a busy day. However the best thing about this hotel is the staff, all of whom are friendly and very helpful, especially Ceyda who is without doubt the best concierge we have ever come across - outstanding service on every level.
