“Neorion lives up to its reviews”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

We stayed on January 24-26, for a short weekend. The checkin and orientation was friendly and efficient. Everyone was truly nice to us.

We stayed in Room 601, which has a large patio overlooking the city. Great view. Excellent room. Minibar was well stocked. Television offered many channels and many in English. Internet was quick and did not drop out, as I've experienced in many other hotels.

The breakfast buffet was not over the top, but it offered a nice variety, and we enjoyed it very much.

In the past we have stayed at the Sura Design Hotel, also in Sultanahmet. That hotel was quite nice, but I now like the Neorion a bit more. The Neorion is closer to the Tram stock, Spice Market and the Galatos bridge.

Checkout was a breeze, evening though paying partially in dollars and lira, I arranged airport transfer thru the hotel, which at E$25 each way might have been a bit high. However, the transport was quick and easy, and I'd do it again.....

Room Tip: Room 601 has a large patio, with a great view. I also think that Rooms 602 and 603 have small balco...

What is the perfect hotel? It has a friendly and informed staff; the room is spacious and attractive; the room has all the necessary facilities; there is a remarkable view from the little balcony outside the room; breakfast is delicious and generous; there are free snacks laid out all day long; the hotel's location is convenient; the hotel has connections with excellent neighbourhood restaurants. All of these criteria fit the Neorion. It is just wonderful -- and we hope to go back there soon!

Room Tip: The rooms on the upper floors have the best views of course.

Have just returned from a weekend in Istanbul, after being in Antakya Turkey for a couple of weeks. Had booked the Neorion on the basis of all the good comments on trip advisor. Every single one of those positive things I can confirm, this is a beautiful hotel, with incredibly helpful staff. It is the most opulent? No Is it the flashiest? No But those things pale into insignificance
with the amazing staff care, the incredible location and the beautifully simple, & cleanly presented interior of the hotel. Our room was beautiful, a lovely balcony overlooking some of the most incredible architecture (blue mosque and hagia sofia) and the river. The bedlinens were crisp and white, the bathroom clean and well equipped. 2 lovely white bathrobes were a nice touch, as was the personal note from the owner with a box of Turkish Delight. Sula the tourist information young lady was so helpful, as were all the other staff, nothing too much trouble, everything a pleasure. WOW I think they should market their staff training courses. What a
treat it was to stay here, we shall return definitely!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a great view - I imagine they dont all face the blue mosque. We were on the 6t...

Usually I'm quite skeptic about hotel ratings in travelling webs, but I must say this hotel deserves the qualification and comments from people. I travel a lot worldwide and for me this is the best hotel I've ever been in terms of customer oriented service. Staff is friendly, reactive and even proactive, offering you everything they can even if you don't ask about it. As an example, a late check out was offered to us even without asking and this made us better enjoy our last day in Istanbul. Excellent hotel, great location and extraordinary staff. Definitely, this is the choice for Istanbul.

Every single aspect of this hotel matched all our expectations. Staff friendly and professional. Very familiar with all guests needs. Loved the early evening roof top entertainment. Quite unique. Great safe and convenient location near to all the popular attractions in Istanbul , transport and very good restaurants. Highly recommended for all types of travellers-families and couples and friends. I will be back here. Thank you.

We celebrated my husband's birthday at the Neorion Hotel and couldn't have been happier with our stay.

The hotel is very centrally located -- it's a 5-minute walk to the Spice Market and a 10-minute walk to the Hagia Sofia -- but situated on a relatively quiet road so there was limited street noise.

Our room was very spacious and well appointed. The bed was large and comfortable, and there was a separate seating area where you could read by the window.

For us, the highlight of the hotel was it's phenomenal roof terrace. We spent each night enjoying the sunset on the comfortable couches they had upstairs. From the rooftop, you get incredible views over the Bosporus and the Golden Horn.

From 11-5pm or so, the hotel provided a complimentary snack buffet which was another generous touch. The snacks were so plentiful that you could easily make this your lunch. It was a great way to sample some of the different local favorites.

We stayed here for 4 nights and found the service to be exceptional throughout our visit. The staff could not do enough to make us happy and seemed genuinely committed to showing us a great time. We were surprised to find that the service we received here was far better than what we'd experienced at several "brand name" luxury hotels!

We'll definitely stay at the Neorion during our next visit to Istanbul.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor to minimize street noise. Be mindful that the morning call to pray...

My wife and I stayed at the Neorion for six nights. We found that all the positive reports on TA were justified.
The hotel is in a great location, in walking distance of the well know attractions. The tram stop is very close by as well.
It is a very nice boutique hotel. We paid for a better room and so had a nice view from the top floor.
Most of all the staff were fantastic. They were always friendly, willing to help, and managed to sort out a few of our problems.
