“Excellent hotel in prime spot”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

The hotel is in a top location just a short walk from some of Istanbul's top attractions. We were able to get everywhere we wanted to go (Blue Mosque, Cisterns, river cruise, bazaar etc) in less than a 10 min walk. Our greeting was really nice. We were given a drink on the house and then a member of staff talked us through how things worked and where things were. It's also worth noting they provided a mini bus pick up from the airport. Rooms were clean and spacious without being grand. Breakfast was good quality and as expected from a standard hotel buffet, without being special. There's a really nice roof terrace with good views of the Bosphorus and whilst it doesn't have an in situ bar there is a phone to order drinks which appear without bother, although a touch slowly when it's busy

Room Tip: Ideally go for a higher floor to distance yourself from street noise (though this isn't too bad...

The Neorion hotel was everything we could have asked for in a city centre hotel in Istanbul. Central location, spotlessly clean rooms which provided everything we needed and decent breakfast buffet. The thing that really set it apart was the amazing staff, everyone we met could not do enough for us, from the very informative but not over the top welcome chat, the great restaurant that they booked for us for dinner (Matbah) to the service we received on check out, they were superb all the way through. I would stay here again without hesitation and recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in the heart of the old city. Only point for improvement would be to have a bar on the roof terrace, the fact you had to ring down did delay the service, but this is a minor point in the overall experience.

We have spent a full week at the Neorion Hotel in Istanbul. The location of this hotel is perfect, all the major sites being within walking distance. Service quality and the excellent hospitality made us feel “at home”. Although small, the room was pleasant, and the bed extremely comfortable. Breakfast is good, and the free buffet, served between 1 and 7 p.m., may feel very welcoming after a full day of sightseeing, or as an invitation for a mid-day break at the hotel. The menu, however, could be more imaginative. Guests can also benefit from the spa until late at night, and enjoy a splendid view of the old city from the terrace. Overall, a peculiar mixture of high professionalism and genuine human warmth made our stay at the Neorion Hotel a delightful experience.

The staff at the Neorion were wonderful and made us feel very welcomed. They gave us 5 star treatment. The rooms were very nice and clean, the breakfast and afternoon snacks were a great plus. The best part of the property is the roof deck with sweeping views of both sides of the Bosphorous. We watched sunset and drank wine up there almost every night of our visit. It was great!

Neorion is one of the best places you can possibly stay if you are a first-time visitor to Istanbul, like me and my wife during our recent stay. Within walking distance of the major sights in Sultanahmet, but first and foremost an excellent hotel with extremely pleasant and friendly staff, who seem genuinely interested in making your stay a good one. The hotel is small enough to be personal, but maintains a luxury feel in its nice spa and rooftop bar. Rooms are not extremely large, but well designed and maintained and with high quality interior. Good breakfast and complimentary mezes in the afternoon. One of the most likeable hotels we have stayed in!

Wife and I stayed for 11 days. Staff are superb to all guests, rooms and common areas are suitable and breakfast and afternoon mezze service a plus. Friendliness of front desk and concierge exceptional. They even set up breakfast early for us when we had an early day planned. This group has sister hotel (orient Express) and 2 sister restaurants. I do not recommend Pasazade Restaurant.

My mother and I stayed for three nights in a superior twin room (602) with balcony in May. We had a very long trip from Australia culminating in coping with the chaos of Ataturk airport customs, so the calm and warm welcome of Loreta at Neorion was very much appreciated! Our room was spotless, and complete with lovely balcony with views of Marmara sea, mosques etc. A great spot for morning coffee or evening drink, as was the rooftop terrace. Beds very comfy, crisp linens. Lovely deep bath tub, great shower, excellent housekeeping. I had hamam treatment-just the thing after a long flight! Breakfast buffet generous, varied, and delicious. The location is perfect- easy walking distance to blue mosque, Aya Sofia, bazaars, Galata bridge etc. Easy to get tram then funicular to Taksim. Undoubtedly this hotel deserves it's high rating as all the staff are so helpful, nothing is too much trouble. Unfortunately we had to move to the hilton for a conference for the rest of our stay which was fine but 'corporate'- we much preferred the authenticity and real 'turkishness' (if that's a word?!) of Neorion. Would happily stay here next time I come to Istanbul, which will hopefully be soon!

Room Tip: Ask for room on sixth floor with balcony
