We actually booked our reservation at the Neorion based on glowing TripAdvisor reviews, and we're so happy we did. From the moment we walked in the door after being picked up at the airport by a hotel representative, we were treated like royalty by the very sweet and professional hotel staff. A guest relations concierge, Zeynep, welcomed us and presented us with Turkish coffee and fresh juices as she sat with us and outlined city highlights and helpful tips on getting around the city before presenting us with our own map and train schedule. Our room was spacious, immaculate, modern, and comfortable...we opted for the Superior room and had a wonderful verandah with a great view of the Blue Mosque and the Bosphorus. The hotel offers complimentary wine on the upstairs terrace from 19:00-19:30, where guests can gather to watch the sunset. The food was incredible...breakfast is a feast of meats, breads, eggs, yogurts, fruit, honeycomb, juices, and coffee, and always included a selection of local dishes, as well. Afternoon mezzes are available from 1300-1900, and were also impressive. We happened to be in town for my birthday, and the lovely staff brought a cake to my room and presented me with a lovely turkish coffee set as a gift...I was so surprised and moved by the personal touches and attention to detail. We have both stayed in tons of luxury hotels all over the world, and upon leaving, we agreed that Neorion takes the prize as the best customer service we've ever experienced. The hotel itself is also charming and comfortable, with great city views. We especially liked our bathroom...great lighting, spacious shower, and again, the whole place was spotless...we could've eaten off the floors. We're so glad we chose this hotel, and will definitely be back.
