“Wonderful boutique hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014

Great location to visit the historic part of the city. Within easy walking distance of the main tourist draws. Since the hotel had space they upgraded us to a larger room. Excellent air conditioning and room lighting as well as clean, spacious bathroom. Afternoon free light buffet came in handy as we stopped back to unload acquired treasures. The staff is very helpful and customer service focused. An excellent choice.

Room Tip: Our room had no view. No doubt one can ask for a better view, the hotel is pretty well surrounded b...

We stayed in this hotel on our first arrival at Istanbul and on the returned journey after our round trip of Turkey. We were upgraded to a supreme room during our second stay, showing that the hotel value their returned guests like us.

The supreme room (No.601) is very comfortable and spacious with a private terrace and adjacent wide windows. The bathroom shower, mirror, sink, etc have good setting. Lighting, furniture, wifi, TV are user friendly. They provide free breakfast where the quality of food is excellent. The staff are polite and extremely helpful.

There is a terrace on the 7/F which have panoramic view of the "two continents".

Our family of five recently returned from a four night stay at the Neorion and everything was perfect from start to finish! When we arrived on Tueday evening -- after a complimentary shuttle from the airport -- they were waiting for us in the lobby. They sat us down in the lounge for a refreshing drink and a quick overview of the hotel and city, and we were settled in our rooms within 15 minutes. As requested, they put us on an upper floor and gave us rooms directly across from each other. The rooms were above average in size for a European hotel. The bathrooms were a bit small, but the huge "rainfall" showers more than made up for this. We were expecting the usual tiny bath/shower combo with the half-door that allows most of the water to end up on the bathroom floor, so this was a nice surprise. Beds and pillows were very comfortable, and housekeeping continually refreshed a small dish of Turkish Delight (very nice touch!) and bottles of water. Really no problem with thin walls that you often experience at hotels, and the double-payned windows kept out all of the noise from the busy streets outside. We were never interrupted by housekeeping -- they always came while we were out and meticulously cleaned the rooms each day. The staff were all incredibly helpful and friendly -- no matter the request, we were never told "no." They gave us great directions and recommendations for sites and restaurants. The breakfast buffet was the best we had seen in all of our travels, and the main dishes were rotated each day. As an added bonus, the hotel puts out an afternoon buffet of appetizers -- mostly local dishes. This was a real treat after a long day of sightseeing. Very nice to have a snack to tide us over until dinner. Another real bonus at the Neorion is the spa. It is very quiet and peaceful. There is a Turkish bath, a dry sauna, a jaccuzi and a small swimming pool. It was really nice to go down there and relax after a long day of walking. The guys that work in the spa are great -- very helpful and cool. If I had one complaint about the entire experience, it's a pretty silly one. The jacuzzi is cold (same temperature as the pool), rather than hot. This was strange to us, but again, really minor in the grand scheme of things. Finally, the location of the Neorion can't be beat! We were able to walk to ALL of the major sites within 15 minutes. In addition, there is a tram stop within a block of the hotel. The hotel is in a neat neighborhood, with all sorts of shops and restaurants within a five-minute walk. We felt very safe in this area. The view from the rooftop terrace is absolutely amazing. Unfortunately, it was pretty cold while we were there, so we weren't able to enjoy drinks up there. But we still went up top for some great photos. The hotel was kind enough to "comp" us the return shuttle to the airport since we had booked two rooms, and the evening before we left, there was a gift in one of the rooms -- a pretty scarf with a note thanking us for staying there (Mom claimed the scarf rather than trying to decide which of three teenage daughters would get it). All-in-all, an absolutely terrific stay at the Neorion and I would highly recommend it to anyone. We've stayed in a couple dozen great hotels in great cities around the world, but we all agreed that the Neorion was our favorite!

Room Tip: Higher floor facing the street so you have a view and escape the street noise.

They were so welcoming it was one of the best hotel experiences I have ever had. I knew right after they helped me pay for my taxi since I didn't have Lira that this was going to be a great place to stay. Great location, really good free food, and great staff.

A friend and I stayed at The Neorion in early March to celebrate my birthday. We decided to book there on the basis of the rave reviews on TripAdvisor and were not disappointed. This is a lovely boutique style hotel, exceptionally clean, comfy beds and amazing pillows!, friendly and helpful staff and a real desire to go the extra mile. Nothing was too much trouble and some of the staff surprised me on my birthday with a delicious cake which was a really lovely touch. The complimentary appetisers they mention on the website as being available in the afternoon are actually served between 1-7pm which meant we were able to have a snack in the afternoon if we hadn't had much for lunch - this was a real bonus. The location of the hotel is superb, being very close to many of the major sites. My only complaint was the weather as it pretty much rained the entire time and was also cold and windy, but obviously the Neorion had no control over that!! (but they did have a very good supply of umbrellas for guest use which was great!). I would love to return to Istanbul sometime when it's warm and sunny and wouldn't hesitate to return to this hotel.

Room Tip: We opted for a superior room with city view on the 6th floor which was great!

Like many people, I booked on the basis of reviews I've read but also worried that the hotel would live up to the expectations - in our view it did.
Arrived (on our free airport transfer) to a very warm welcome at the hotel, with exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable staff who gave the impression that nothing would put them out.
The hotel is fantastically located, all of the old town attractions are around 10 mins walk away and the bridge, ports, tram and rail station are all within 5 mins for anything else you might want to do.
The room was really big and super clean (as was the rest of the hotel including the pool and spa facilities), and on 6th floor we had a lovely little terrace with fantastic views of the new mosque and Topkapi Palace.
Breakfast had lots of variety and the complimentary meze in the afternoons was an added bonus, when we weren't out exploring.
We really enjoyed our stay and would thoroughly recommend this hotel for your break in Istanbul.

Room Tip: After reading other comments, I asked for a high up street side room. We had 607 and would recommen...

I stayed at the Neorion Hotel last year with my husband and returned this year with my sister. I gave them a perfect score last year and they have earned it again. Rooms are lovely with modern baths that have both rain and hand held showers The superb, caring, young staff works as a team , never stops smiling and goes above and beyond duty to make your stay perfect. From the instant hot water in the shower, to its excellent location and great breakfast followed by a satisfying lentil soup and meze buffet ALL afternoon and ALL complimentary, the Neorion Hotel aims to please and they succeed ...PERFECTLY!

Room Tip: This year, I stayed in a twin room with my sister. The twin room looked exactly like the one picture...
