“Excellent time at the Neorion!”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

I just came back from a wonderful trip to Turkey and I would highly recommend this wonderful hotel to anyone visiting. I have traveled quite a bit and this hotel by far made me feel very comfortable and welcomed. From the moment I arrived to the wonderful parting (which they go out of their way to make you feel appreciated) this hotel was nothing but top rate. I highly recommend the spa (and had a great massage), the roof deck (beautiful view and relaxing from the crowded streets), and the hotel staff (was top rate). Every time I came back to the hotel I felt I was coming home and greeting warmly. The hotel also arranged all my tours (Istanbul Walks-the best), my hamani, plus gave me all the best suggestions.

Thank you Neorion for making my stay so enjoyable in your beautiuful city.

Everything was perfect, again and we were enchanted. We were upgraded to a suite on the 5th floor and the room, no need to mention, was spectacular. All in all, another wonderful experience at the Neorion.

Just returned from a 2 day stay at this excellent hotel which is ideally situated near the historic area of Istanbul. We booked this hotel after reading the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor and this decison was justified.

Straight from check in we were given a free drink and quick run down of the area by the extremely friendly and knowledgable Sule. She really is a credit to the hotel. We had travelled on the early flight from London so the free Meze that the hotel lay on from 1pm - 7pm was a welcome surprise and very tasty.

Our room was well appointed and very clean and had everything one would expect in a modern hotel. They even leave you a supply of Turkish Delight on a daily basis which is a nice touch.

The hotel itself isnt very big but is well laid out. The SPA is located on level -2 but with the corridors being quite small you can change in your room into the dressing gown and slippers provided by the Neorion and be in the lift and into the spa within a minute or so. The SPA itself is quite small but has what you would expect (a small pool, jacuzzi, sauna, private hamam and larger communal hamam).

The terrace on Level 6+ was a lovely surprise too. Its large and has plenty of comfortable rattan furniture to grab a seat to enjoy the views. It overlooks the Bosphurus and the back of Hagia Sophia. They run a request bar on this level so a quick call to reception and your drinks are delievered within minutes. Sitting on the Terrace enjoying a beer whilst watching the sun set over the mosques is not only a photographers dream, but a lovely experience.

The breakfasts were great here too. The usual array of continental breakfast fare plus plenty of hot food like sausage, eggs, croquettes etc. They also lay on a fantastic selection of cheese and meat. Breakfast is included in the room rate for all I believe.

Outside the area is lively and has a spectacular array of restaurants, Baklava shops and bazaars. Locationwide you are about a 5 min walk to the sea and a 5 min walk to the heart of the historic centre which is the triangke of the Byzantine Cisterns, Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia.

All in all this hotel provides great service in a cracking location but the most important aspect is that the staff take immense pride in their work and it shows in the number of postive reviews on this site.

You will not be disapointed if you book this hotel.

Are all the reviews truthful? In one word Yes.

I have just spent one week at the Neorion, a modern hotel in the centre of the Sultanahmet district of old Istanbul and within walking distance of most of the top sites and 300 yards from the tram station. I chose to stay here because of the reviews on Trip Advisor, but surely it cannot really be as good as everyone says. Well it certainly is. I have never met such genuinely, well caring and friendly hotel staff, nothing is too much trouble.

We stayed in a superior room on the 6th floor. It was spotlessly clean, with a small balcony with two chairs. There were also two armchairs in our room as well. The bathroom was modern with ample choice of toiletries and, according to my wife, a good hairdryer. From the 6th floor you can see the Bosphorus but the view is obscured by other buildings, however do not let that put you off. You have a much better view from its roof terrace wher you can sit and have a drink.

The breakfast choice was vast and as mentioned many times there is a complimentary and very varied meze style buffet from 1pm to 7pm everyday. Yes if you do not want to eat out for lunch, or dinner or indeed both you do not have to.

The hotel group has two local restaurants and we had dinner one evening at the Imbat roof top restaurant which is a must to visit, you will not be disappointed. (See separate review)

The hotel offers a pick up from the airport and also a return. I would suggest that you take advantage of this and depending on the length of your stay one trip is free.

In conclusion the Neorion offers better than 5 star service in a spotlessly clean environment and at a fraction of the price. Are all the reviews truthful? Yes.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 6th floor are the best

This is a great place with very nice and helpful staff, generous and spacy rooms and very centrally located. From the perfect and friendly reception until the final minutes of our stay it was just great. A Pool is available but it is too little for swimming. Otherwise perfect! Juerg W. & Irene B.

After seeing all of the positive reviews on tripadvisor, I decided to stay at Neorion for 4 days. First of all, the service is fantastic. The only other place I have seen this level of service is the Four Seasons. Upon arrival, we were greeted with tea and someone from the hotel gave us information about the amenities and the surrounding area. We came in on an overnight flight, so it was really nice to eat a nice breakfast (both hot and cold foods) and head upstairs for a nap.

The location of the hotel is very near to Hagia Sofia, the Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern, and Topkapi Palace - I couldn't think of a better location.

The room itself was spacious and very clean. My favorite part of the hotel was the roofdeck. Because we were jet-lagged, we tended to go to bed early and wake up early. This meant watching beautiful sunrises over the city while sipping tea on the roof - one of my favorite experiences in Istanbul.

With all of the different places to go, things to see, and food to eat, choosing to stay at the Neorion should be the easiest decision you make.

Our stay at the Neorion was over the top excellent. From the moment we arrived without luggage (thank you Air France) the staff was incredable. The property is close to all the Historic Attractions and with the Tram Stop just steps away, all of Instanbul is at your door step. The free transfer from the Airport was seamless and the service overall gets five stars. We came back to the Neorion two more times; after a cruise of the Black Sea and again after six days in Southern Turkey. The rooftop terrace with a killer view is a nice amenity.

Room Tip: 6th floor rooms have balconies.
