Had been to Istanbul recently for a short trip. Had stayed at Neorion for 3 days.. While the hotel comes across as a small hotel, it has a fantastic location in the Sultan Ahmet district.. located very close to most of the historical sites of Istanbul including The Hagia Sofia, Topkapi palace, The Cistern, Grand Bazar and all the key turkish baths. All these places are within the walking distance.... It is also located near the Sirkeci Tram station.
The rooms are neat, clean and spacious.. The bathroom is spic and span. They have a lovely breakfast spread and also offer a good snack(meze) free between 1pm to 6pm..(in case you happen to be in the hotel in that time)..
Lastly, they also have a very helpful staff which guides you patiently on your queries about getting about the city. The staff was particularly courteous and helpful.
While the hotel doesnt offer any great views and is a kind of a city hotel.. I liked the place on account of the warmth of the staff and location.
