“Really very good - the service and small touches make it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

A great hotel right in the heart of the old city - within walking distance of most of the major sites - this is a great place for a tourist stay.
the staff is great - from the complimentary drink and orientation, to the box of Turkish delight we were given on our departure, they looked after us really well.
The management look after you with lots of nice touches - free wine at sunset on the roof, free mese all afternoon, free internet, printing, etc.. The breakfast is simple, but excellent - packed with loads of fresh fruit, and various breads.
The room is comfortable and whilst there is tram noise from outside, that really hasn't disturbed my sleep (and I'm a relatively light sleeper). Afternoon naps were a little noisy, but otherwise no problem at all.

A really nice nice hotel, perfect for a few days seeing the sites of Istanbul.

Our trip to the fabulous vibrant city of Istanbul was a treat for my husband's birthday. We selected this hotel on the basis of the glowing Tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. I endorse all the positive comments left by previous reviewers. We appreciated the warm and friendly ambience - to me it was poles apart from the fairly superficial, impersonal, "corporate" feel I have experienced in many luxury hotels around the world. In places like that I have sometimes felt I was being ripped off in so far as being charged for every little thing. Here this was not the case. Little gestures like complimentary bottles of water provided every day, the afternoon meze (very tasty!), the roof terrace drinks, the Turkish Delight all contributed to a general "feel-good" factor. The breakfasts were delicious. Not only that but when paying for our extras at the end of our stay we were told not to pay for my husband's 2 cans of Coke from the mini bar - they were a present from the hotel! Little things like that can reap big rewards in terms of repeat custom - other hotels should learn from this. We were also allowed to keep our room till 2 30 for our check out and this was much appreciated.

The staff are a great asset to the hotel - charming, courteous, cheerful and most helpful at all times. They have a great "can-do" attitude. Given that most guests only stay a short time I am impressed how quickly the staff managed to establish positive relationships with guests. The owner is clearly keen for guests to be happy; giving his personal contact details in a welcome letter should anyone be dissatisfied was something I had not come across before. Impressive.

The communication with the hotel during the booking process was faultless. All my questions were answered promptly. My husband is a terrible sleeper so I requested a quiet room with a big bed and indeed this is what I got. It was on the sixth floor at the back and faced a blank wall. We didn't mind that as we are hardly in our room on a city break. Also we were 2 seconds away from the stairs to the lovely roof terrace and used that as our balcony with a view! Both the room and the shower room were large and spotlessly clean.

This is one of the most welcoming hotels I have stayed in and the fact that the location is brilliant too I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Istanbul.

I travel a lot and I happen to be very picky, trust me this was one my best experiences!
I was traveling from Los Angeles having a layover in Istanbul for two days and as always I picked this hotel from the trip advisor .Neorion is a trendy boutique hotel situated in the middle of the most touristic locations in Istanbul surrounded by great restaurants, old bazaars and old mosques .
The rooms are modern yet with a turkish touch ,super clean and convenient and great showers:)The service was amazing.The staff were exceptionally helpful.
Our check out was on 12 am but because our flight was at 8 pm they let us stay until 4pm which was very nice of them and least it never happened to me before.
The indoor swimming pool and the turkish bath were very clean and beautiful.The breakfast was great and besides the free wine they served at the roof top at the sunset,they also served free mezza(appetizers)from 1pm-7pm.
I loved the lobby atmosphere, cozy enough to sit and relax and work on my computer .There was a guide in the lobby for any assistance, if looking for addresses,restaurants ,reservations and any needed information .
I loved the welcome note from the owner expressing his hospitality and friendly reception :)…At the end I have to say if you haven't yet decided on the hotel during your trip to Istanbul I highly recommend this one and you will not regret it!

The Neorion hotel is an excellent place to stay in Istanbul. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms are a decent size and get cleaned every day. Furthermore, the swimmingt pool, hammam and sauna are an extra plus to relax after your busy day of city tripping... And then I almost forget the roof top terras where you can enjoy the sunset with a free drink. If you are planning a city trip to Istanbul, the Neorion hotel is the place to be!

Just returned from a 5 day break at this Hotel. Friendly staff, excellent variety of foods for breakfast, sunset on roof terrace with free glass of wine beautiful. My friend and I booked to stay here some time ago correspondence was always quick and helpful and it was lovely to receive a welcoming email just as we left the UK. Restaurants were recommended and booked with ease. The inhouse Turkish Bath Massage was a real treat and just wonderful. Would not hesitate to recommend this Hotel as is walkable to all the Major Sites.
We had a lovely large twin room and a largish bathroom whichh was daily replenished with all we needed shower gel etc etc. A bonus was the delicious Turkish Delight which was replenished every day.

Pros- Good location, close to major sites, and tram stop. Great rooftop deck to watch sunset over istanbul with a glass of free wine! Great service-assisted me with booking of restaurants, turkish bath, etc. Prompt reply to emails. Staff was wonderful,

Cons- Superior room still on smallish side. Bathrooms can use alittle updating, also on smallish side. Bed was a tad hard. Staff assisted me in making a reservation to a roof top restaurant months ahead. However, when I arrived to the restaurant, there was no booking and I was turned away. Not sure who dropped the ball on that one. However, it was just a minor hiccup to an otherwise pleasant experience.
