As two intrepid travellers, who look for culture, historic background and an inviting atmosphere, where better place to stay in the city of Istanbul than The Neorion Hotel aptly named after an ancient settlement in the now Sirkeci area of the city. Vibrant, bustling, colourful and friendly, it's the perfect area to be in if you want to visit the historical part of the city aswell as enjoying the amenities of the Neorion hotel close at hand.
What makes the Neorion stand out from the usual plethora of branded 4 star hotels ? Well, its down to previous stay reports on Trip Advisor and the little touches the hotel is able to offer to differentiate it from others !
On first arrival at the hotel, a welcoming greeting with offer of refreshment drink and an explanation of the facilities of the hotel together with help to organise an itinerary of places to visit and where to eat and how to get there puts one straight away at ease.
Our room was well appointed and very comfortable with an added bonus of delicious Turkish Delight and mineral water provided on top of the usual tea/coffee making facilities. Excellent power show in the bathroom with all the usual gels etc together with provision of bathrobe and slippers made life more pleasurable!
We very much enjoyed the spa and swimming amenities that attracted us to the hotel originally, especially after an often exhaustive day of walking and visiting, allowing us to 'chill out' and recuperate our spirits !
The afternoon complimentary self service meze food aswell as wine served on the roof to watch the sunset view over the Bosphorus straits all added to a most memorable stay at the Neorion.
A very attentive staff , where nothing was too much trouble, friendliness with professionalism and a relaxed and informal atmosphere made you feel at home , a true mark of hospitality without too much overbearing.
To sum up, an excellent hotel providing good food, ambience, and very thoughtful staff and management who want to make your stay relaxed , pleasant and enjoyable and in our case highly recommendable to either friends or fellow visitors to the city of Istanbul.
