“An excellent stay.”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

We read the reviews and expected a fabulous stay. We were not disappointed. Every member of staff was very welcoming and helpful; nothing was too much trouble, morning, noon or night. The room was the cleanest I have ever experienced as was the immaculate shower room. The public areas were equally clean. The room was quite splendid for a standard double with perfect finishing. The bed was most comfortable and although there was a pillow menu, we found the default pillows to be perfect. The roof terrace surely had one of the best views of the city, the beer was cold ;) and the bar staff were quick to serve.The hotel is situated very nicely for access to areas of interest and although was right in the middle of things, and during Ramadan, the hotel was quiet. I could not fault this hotel and the staff. Will return.

Room Tip: A standard double is great. You may wish to book a superior room or one of the suites if you would l...

This hotel was recommended to us last year by an American traveler at the airport. We fell in love with it. The location allows easy access to the metro, Marmaray, and ferry boats. You are located within walking distance to all the sites of old Constantinople. They have a excellent breakfast buffet and between 1 and 7 pm they serve mezes in the lobby. At sunset you can go to the rooftop and enjoy complimentary wine and the incredible views of the Bosphorus and and surrounding mosques. They have an indoor pool witha hamam so take advantage of them. I left the best for last the staff is incredible! You are the customer and they're there to serve you. You're never wrong. We will definitely stay here again.

I've stayed in numerous hotels around the world but few come close to the Neorion. The welcome is now legendary, the service exemplary, and you genuinely feel everyone wants to make your stay special. With the staff its almost personal, not just being paid to do a job.

We had a room on the fourth floor which was medium sized and spotless, plus one of the largest beds I've ever slept in. Everything worked, nothing was broken. Just when you think nothing can get better you arrive at the roof terrace for your free sundowner drink at 8pm.... Wow. The view over Istanbul is superb, everyone taking photographs. The location was great too. A 10 minute walk to the ferries and all the attractions. When we were there the swimming pool was 100% functional and made a really great end to the day.

Room Tip: Rooms not on the road are a little quieter.

This was the one of the best hotel. All of the staff are fabulous - they were courteous, helpful and friendly. The rooms are very clean & cozy, excellent location, SPA is excellent & worth!! Most of reviewer already have had commented the hotel offer. But can you believe any hotels would offer you another available room to use without extra charges until 10pm because of our flight at 1am? Highly recommend & absolutely will come back again!!

Conveniently located - we walked to both mosques, Grand Bazaar, Spice Market and Bospherous River cruise from the hotel. Loved the roof top bar - great place to watch the sun set! Rooms were spacious with comfortable beds. Staff were very helpful. Kids loved the pool, and I had a massage in the Haman which was very pleasant.

This hotel is wonderful. It is a modern boutique hotel located 2 minutes from a tram route which takes you up to The sites aroung the Hagia Sofia or across to the Galata side in a few minutes. The bedrooms are modern with super bathrooms and large firm beds. The breakfast and complimentary meze (read 'lunch') are excellent. The swimming pool and hammam in the basement are spotless and a great retreat from bustling Istanbul. Most of all, the view from the roof where they serve complimentary drinks each evening are stunning and the staff go out of their way to be charming and helpful. We had a wonderful holiday.

Room Tip: The front side of the hotel has noisy traffic. We quickly got used to it but they provide earplugs...

My husband and I spent almost 5 days on our own in Istanbul before joining up with a small group tour. I chose the Neorion partially because it was #1 on TA at the time, but more because the location, pictures and comments all appealed. It's a small hotel, located near all the sights of Sultanahmet, as well as the Galata bridge, which we walked across a couple of times. The staff was lovely, rooms were pleasantly furnished, great breakfast, plus nice views from the roof where you can sip a glass of wine. They did offer some sort of complimentary mezes in the afternoon but we were too busy to get back in time.
The first room they put us in was really rather unpleasant (We arrived extremely early and that was what was available), and not what we had been led to expect, but they moved our bags into a much nicer room at our request while we were out. It wasn't quite the room on the top floor with a view of the famous sights which we had been told it would be, but it was more than adequate.
If I have any quibbles, they would be--1. don't promise rooms you're not going to actually give your guests. and 2: they were almost a little too anxious to make sure that I gave them a good review on TA. , including a bit of follow-up after we had left. But they are a fairly new hotel in a city with a super-abundance of hotels, so I can understand this. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for a charming and convenient place to stay.

Room Tip: It's been almost 2 months since we were there, but I think the unpleasant room was on the first...
