“Don't look for anywhere else....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

We changed our booking to this hotel after seeing the reviews and realising that it would be a lot less expensive then the original hotel we had booked.

From the moment we booked we knew that we had made the right choice as we received an email from the hotel with our own client area. Prior to arriving we requested a taxi from the airport and adjoining rooms as we were traveling with our 3 children. The taxi was there to greet us, (unlike our luggage!) and took us straight to the hotel. We were given rooms 308 and 309 which seemed like a wing of the hotel all to ourselves. The family room with a double bedroom, single bedroom, 2 bathrooms and seating area was well above our expectations given that city centre hotel rooms are usually quite small. After unpacking we went downstairs for a welcome drink and to be given information about Istanbul. It was our youngest sons 10th birthday and the staff came in with a cake with candles singing happy birthday - this was a fantastic gesture on their part and very much appreciated.

The rooms had everything we needed and more including a list of pillow choices. Very comfortable beds. The breakfast buffet was good as was the roof top bar. We did not try the main restaurant. The spa and pool area was a welcome relief after a day sightseeing and whilst small lets not forget this is a city centre hotel and space is of a premium and they have put that available space to great use.

The location is another reason to choose this hotel. Everything you come to Istanbul for as a tourist is right on your doorstep and there is a real buzz to the area at nighttime.

Our experience here could not have been better and would not think of staying in any other hotel should we return to Istanbul.

My wife and I stayed for 7 nights in June 2014 in executive suite 602.

It had a good shower and bath tub. There is a good usable balcony with furniture. The hotel has a fabulous rooftop terrace with panoramic views. The pool is clean. Fast complimentary wi-fi. A huge bed for two. Linen is changed every second day. Air conditioning is good. Relatively quiet. The hotel is near tram and sights.The breakfast was great. Perfect customer service in all areas of hotel service and management.

However the room is small. The bathroom sink cannot be plugged to hold water. More wall hooks and shelf space are needed in both the bathroom and main room. Small inadequate towel racks. More power points are needed. Floor rugs need replacing. The fridge turns off when outside the room.

Stayed June 2014, travelled as a couple

The location for this hotel is unbeatable – it is within walking distance to Topkapi Palace Museum, the tram, the cisterns, and important-to-see mosques. The rooftop view is amazing, too! The facilities are clean and the staff is very nice. Don’t expect Celiac-safe gluten-free food here, though. In fact, in general, it’s hard to come across any Celiac-safe food in Istanbul. There are some gluten-free options around the city but none of them take cross-contamination precautions.

For travelers to Istanbul, the Neorion was a FABULOUS hotel option. Great service, located in the heart of old town and walkable to most sites, good complimentary breakfast, PM snacks/cocktails and terrific roof top terrace with forever views and comfortable rooms. When we next travel to Istanbul, we'll stay no other place than the Neorion!

Room Tip: If available, stay on the 6thg floor.....we were in room 602 and the balcony views were nice.

I stayed at this hotel as a bit of a treat on my way home from a business trip to Bangladesh - the location was great, the bed was divine, the daily snacks / tapas were delicious and the spa / Turkish bath onsite was okay.

The funniest thing was getting a massage in a room with a mirrored wall... and the male massage therapist holding the tower for me to turn around while he was standing facing the mirrored wall - which gave him a full view!

The staff were nice and helpful and I would definitely stay here again - but if you are on a budget there are cheaper option within 1-2 blocks of this location where one of my colleagues stayed - but I will say the value is good here with higher rates = higher service.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be high quality - I faced the street and was not bothered at all by any noise...

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights in July 2014. I couldn't recommend this hotel more highly.

First and foremost, the service was wonderful. From the moment we arrived the staff were exemplary and went out of their way to make our stay special. We were greeted with information, turkish delight, free wine and fruit. We were presented with a gift on the second (final) night.

The hotel itself is immaculate. We were upgraded - free of charge - to a deluxe suite on the top floor with a balcony. The room, large and airy, was tastefully decorated and comfortable.

Two other things well worth a mention include the spa (with spotless and well-maintained hamam, jacuzzi etc) and the complimentary Turkish meze served all day which was delicious.

Don't hesitate to book here - you won't be disappointed!

We travelled to Istanbul recently with as a family with 2 children aged 4 and 6 years. We chose Neorion based on TripAdvisor reviews and we were not disappointed at all. We had a family room on the 4th floor - the living area had a sofa bed and a rollaway bed for the children with their own bathroom. We had our room with our own bathroom down a short hallway, so it allowed plenty of space for all 4 of us.

We felt like we were being welcomed to a Turkish home - the staff were all so warm and friendly, and there were nice unexpected touches - like Turkish Delight in silver trays, a gift that was waiting for us in our room, and mezes in the afternoon (which we didn't get to try unfortunately). There is a travel advisor in the lobby during the day who is happy to sit down with you and discuss travel and sightseeing options around the Old Town. We got clear instructions and felt confident on heading out to explore Istanbul on our own. We were also given a complimentary blank tramcard to use (I've been told it costs 7 euro to buy a blank tramcard and then you top it up with money to use on fares).

The location was convenient - we felt safe and confident walking to the major sights with our boys. The drive to and from the airport took about 30min by taxi (on the weekend) but we were told to allow an hour with traffic.

The highlight was definitely watching the sunset on the rooftop terrace with the complimentary drink and the great music. It set such a great mood for us to farewell Istanbul and will always be remembered as one of the highlights of our entire European visit.

We highly recommend this hotel and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if we are lucky enough to visit Istanbul another time!

Room Tip: We stayed during Ramadan, so it is noisy late into the night. With the windows shut and air-conditio...
