Reviewed 20 September 2012

We were very surprised with the friendliness and professionalism of the hotel staff as soon as we entered this hotel. The person at the front desk was always helpful and very keen to help in any way that he could. My husband had a bad headache one afternoon and the staff went out of their way to try to make him comfortable. We truly appreciate their efforts and the kindness shown to him that we wrote the owner to inform him about the great staff he has at this hotel.
The conciege also recommended the 72 hour museum card. If you are planning to be in Istanbul for 2 to 3 days and plan to visit places such as the topkapi palace ( the Harem Rooms at the Topkapi are really worth visiting) and Hagia Sophia along with a few other museums such as the Chora Church (out of the way but amazing), this card is worth it. Plus, you get 10% off in the museum shops.

Room Tip: We had a sixth floor room which was nice since it was close to the terrace. The terrace has fantasti...

Book well in advance as I found out the hard way and after changing my dates managed to get 3 consecutive days. Extremely happy that I changed my schedule as the experience was probably one of the best I have ever had with any hotel. This is a lovely clean, central and well maintained property. The staff though are the biggest asset as they are always available for travel tips and to assist with any requests. from the welcome drink to the farewell gift our stay was amazing. thank you and we will see you again next year.

We recently stayed 5 nights at Neorion. In the weeks before our visit I e-mailed the hotel a few times with queries and always recieved a very quick and helpful response (thanks Merve!). As a result, we arrived with high expectations of great service and were not disappointed. The staff were outstanding; the friendliest and most helpful we have ever come across in our travels. The welcome drink with Merve and information/map was a nice touch and very useful. The staff really helped make our stay in Istanbul special. Our room was in excellent condition and very clean and comfortable. There is free wireless available in all rooms and we also enjoyed the complimentary evening drinks on the hotel's rooftop terrace. There is a very good breakfast selection. The location of the hotel is excellent for sightseeing and walking distance to the main sites. We were given a leaving gift too which completed a perfect stay. If we return to Istanbul, we will definitely stay at Neorion again.

The welcome started with the friendly email exchange when booking this hotel and continued through our stay. We were met at the airport and ferried to the hotel, which was brilliant because we would never have found it otherwise. A welcome drink with lots of useful information about trips; the family room was great for our 4 children (21, 19, 15 & 9) with TWO bathrooms and pleasantly decorated. Our room was also nicely decorated but unfortunately stank of cigarette smoke, 'though a 'no smoking' room. The staff were very helpful and tried to remedy this with lots of airfreshener, which only worked for a while. However, they were kind enough to offer us a complementary meal for all 6 of us as compensation so can't fault their hospitalilty. The hotel is well-situated for the sites to which we could walk easily and you could easily book trips at reception. The only other problem was that we could not eat breakfast as a family because there were never enough of the small breakfast tables unoccupied for us to push together for 6 people. Also there is a roof terrace with a fantastic view where it would have been more pleasant to breakfast than in the dark enclosed ground floor breakfast room. This did not affect the pleasantness of our stay and overall we enjoyed this hotel very much.

Room Tip: The trams are quite noisy so ask for rooms on the opposite side if this bothers you.

We were very pleased to have this hotel recommended. The staff is very kind, the location is close to the “must see” places. Room was ample, clean, comfortable and well furnished. They have an excellent spa and massage service. The only thing that we missed was room service, since we were very tired after visiting so many places and to go out for dinner was not a choice. However the area is surrounded by many local restaurants.
