We stayed at the Neorion for nine nights in late-December 2013 through early-January 2014. Our son and daughter-in-law also stayed for six nights. All four of us were very pleased with the hotel.
What makes the Neorion special is the friendly and helpful staff. Çağdaş is the single best hotel administrator I have observed anywhere in the world. He conscientiously looked after the hotel, the staff, and the guests. He also arranged a New Year’s Eve celebration so the guests could enjoy the fireworks all around the city from the terrace atop the hotel. Yet he always found time to make us feel special. Ceyda, too, was extremely helpful, from handling our reservations through advising us on our visit and making our stay special. Most remarkably, when they learned that we would be celebrating our wedding anniversary, they made reservations for us at the excellent Pasazade Restaurant (see my review in the restaurant section). In fact, without exception, every employee of the hotel consistently provided cheerful, competent service.
Our room was small, but spotless. The housekeeper, Kadriye, even made towels into sculptures of an elephant on one occasion and a pair of swans on another.
The hotel also has a great location. We enjoyed walking to the major sights and to the waterfront.
Every time we return to Istanbul we will stay there.
