Ideally situated for most top sites, being just round the corner from the Sirkeci tram stop so you can reach both Sultanahmet and Galata Bridge very quickly.
We found the Neorion particularly welcoming - their all-afternoon meze buffet as well as their ability to find you a last minute table booking for the restaurant of your fancy allows optimum use of your time in Istanbul.
While low season February is a good time to avoid top attraction queues, it can be pretty cold and/or wet and you need to know you will be returning to a warm lodging like the Neorion.
We opted for a Superior room on the 6th floor and were not disappointed. A comfy big bed, plenty of room to sit and a balcony with rooftop views of the Suleymaniye Mosque backed up by a reliable and conscientious daily room service.
We have spent several years touring most of the countries fringing the Med (north & south) and the Near East, staying in hotels of all size and type. We thought that there was something special about the friendly and motivated team at the Neorion.
