We decided to extend our cruise tour (Fall, 2013) by a few days in Istanbul. My wife did her due diligence and selected the Neorion. During our communications with them even months before our arrival, they proved to be incredibly courteous, very helpful and solicitous of our questions. We were mightily impressed and we hadn't even gotten there! When we finally ended our cruise, our private transportation (arranged by the hotel) picked us up at the pier and whisked us safely and comfortably through the traffic that a city population of 15 million people generates. Arriving at the Neorion we were received with continued good will, attentiveness and charm by the staff. They invited us to have lunch in their dining area until our room was ready, as we had arrived prior to check-in time. The food was delicious and ample. When we got to our room, we found it spotless, and very comfortable. The entire operation is about the best hotel experience that we have had the pleasure to enjoy. Additionally, the Neorion is within reasonable walking distance to the major tourist areas such as the Spice Market, the Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, the Grand Bazaar and Topapki Palace. The staff was extremely helpful in advising us on how to get to where we wanted to go. I should also mention that they offer a 10% discount for cash payment (in any currency). It is a wonderful, wonderful hotel. You would be remiss, if you did not consider the Neorion as choice for your stay in Istanbul,
