I have just returned from Istanbul 2 days ago. Before booking this hotel I was intrigued and a touch sceptical at the positive review of the Neorion.
But this is where I was pleasantly surprised. On arrival there was a warm welcome. And it continued until we left to return home.
I only have praise for the staff and hotel. The service and the lovely gift of Turkish delights topped off a fantastic holiday.
I have nothing negative to say about our stay at the hotel. There was a sense of pride in the work that the staff do which was evident in the thought that has gone into the small detail of their hospitality.
The spa was amazing. A perfect way to destress. The rooms were immaculate and every effort was made to make us feel welcome. Even at midnight for a pot of hot milk for our midnight tea sessions!
I hope that the hotel goes from strength to strength and don't lose the intimate feel that they've created. All were very lovely and nothing was too much for the staff. They have mastered the skill of hospitality, professionalism and personability (which can be devoid in larger glitzy places).
The location was quite special as it was equidistant to all the major sites and it was a treat to be able to step out of the hotel and have a midnight kebab/dessert/sheesha. It is tucked beautifully away from the commercial side allowing a glimpse of istanbullions going about their daily routine from the balconies.
We'll certainly be back inshallah! Thank you Neorion for a lovely holiday.
