“Jewel”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Jewels are not just in the Topkapi. We only had one night in this delightful hotel but it was the perfect way to end our adventure in Turkey. As soon as we walked in the door we were greeted as family members,whisked into the lovely sitting area,offered refreshments,delicious mezes,and given on overview of the hotel amenities. They had even stored our luggage for us 4 days before check-in as we were flying to Cappadocia. They helped me make phone calls, locate a hard to find item in Istanbul, offered to keep a package for me in their fridge for pickup by a friend,made reservation for dinner at sister restaurant Imbat(delicious).
Room 410 with balcony overlooking street was very comfortable and very quiet. I could go on and on but why not go and see for yourself. I plan to on my next trip.

It makes sense why this is a top rated hotel on Trip Advisor after our stay. The staff is incredibly accomodative and friendly. The location is prime and walking distance to all the old city sights. Highly recommended.

On first visit to Istanbul, the Neorion offered what we wanted. On arrival (free transit from the airport) we soon found an hotel that was far above expectations. The friendly but professional service reminded of the good old days, the room was spacious and very comfortable, the buffet breakfast all that could be desired, and (a surprise for us) they had a standing buffet lunch all afternoon. The view from the rooftop terrace with its complimentary drink to see the sunset over the city towards the Golden Horn, and the Sea of Mamara in the other direction, is unforgetable. The spa part was great. Best of all perhaps is the location, just minutes from the main sights, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, Grand Bazar, Topkapi, the station and the port for those cruise boats and ferries. Loved it. We are going back.

Room Tip: A room at the back, as we had, would probably be quieter than those at the front. But its a side str...

We actually moved to this hotel after staying at the Crowne Plaza oldtown for one night. This hotel is by far nicer in every respect. We were greeted by a nice young lady who served us tea and helped us organise our stay, giving us great advice on what to see. Rooms are very nice and breakfast was excellent. the staff here go out of there way to make sure you are happy. In the afternoon there are complimentary meses in the dining area, these are great if you just need a small snack.
We particularly liked the security at this hotel. the doors are closed to the street, so everyone entering the hotel is carefully monitored. This was not the case at the Crowne Plaza. In our opinion this is the perfect place to stay for a visit to Istanbul, great hotel, great location. It's No.1 for a reason.

the hotel is very well located and many of the main attractions can be reached by a short walk. The rooms are very clean, spacious and up to modern 4* standards. Although it is in the middle of the city our room was very quiet. The hotels offers a free meze ( tapas) buffet and a free glass of wine on the terrace roof during sunset. Breakfast buffet is sumptuous. The strongest point of the hotel is, however, the service and the warm hospitality the staff offers. The staff is professional, yet really makes a strong effort to treat you as their very special guest.

We booked the Neorion based on Tripadvisor reviews and what a great decision that was! As soon as we stepped out of the taxi we were greeted and our bags were brought in. Two steps inside the door,we received a warm welcome from the staff. They could not do enough for us. I have never felt such a friendly welcome at any hotel anywhere.

We arrived late afternoon,and were told we could enjoy their afternoon snacks. It consisted of wonderfully delicious Turkey dishes. They also gave us a complimentary glass of wine. Such a nice touch ,especially when you are so tired from long flights. The breakfast is excellent too.

Ceyda was so helpful with helping us by buying tickets to the Royal Palace and suggesting other possible tour recommendations. The gentleman (sorry don't remember his name) who helped us check out was so patient and helpful also arranging a taxi for our return trip to the airport. Thank you again for the Turkish Delight !

The rooms are lovely ,modern and clean. The location is excellent. We could walk to the Hagia Sophia,Blue Mosque,and the Grand Bazaar.

Really enjoyed our stay at the Neorion. Easy to see why it is #1 on Tripadvisor.

I highly recommend.

Thanks again to all the warm and wonderful staff of this marvelous hotel for making our stay the best.

We just returned from Istanbul. The staff at the Neorion goes above and beyond to be friendly and helpful, accommodating in every way. The hotel is very clean and well maintained. Our room was large but on the main street and we could hear the traffic, but had no problem sleeping. I am a light sleeper, but it was fine. The bed and pillows were comfortable, and the room has satellite Tv with American news channels like CNN. Breakfast was included, and was diverse and delicious, also afternoon appetizers. The location is superb, and we walked to all the major historical sights, restaurants, and shops. We would definitely stay there again. The atmosphere is not stuffy or formal, but warm and welcoming. We arrived on a cruise ship, and a driver from the hotel was right on time. When we left, several of the staff came out to wave good bye. They could give lessons on perfect hospitality!
