Travel: Turkey Istanbul Hotel Neorion

A very high recommendation for an Istanbul Hotel from a friend who had a coach tour of Turkey in August 2011.
Let me tell you they had severe food poisoning elsewhere from  help your self buffet. So must have been outstanding service that caused Jill  to be so pleased with this hotel.

The Boutique hotel in the heart of Istanbul was the Neorion, Orhaniye Caddessi No. 14 Sirkeci Istanbul/Turkiye phone +90 212 527 90 90  www.neorionhotel.com 

 
The Turkish are an amazing race of people and in Istanbul they did speak enough English for us to get by very, very well.   

Also, I mentioned the wonderful 'birthday treat' the people at the Neorion gave me. Which included large cake and even a lovely gift .....
I'm not sure of the restaurant we went to on the rooftop of hotel just around another corner and which had a connection to our hotel, I have asked our friends to forward the name, if they cannot remember I'll email the Neorion as also want to thank them for the birthday treat.
We had a drink at a cafe/bar just around the corner, it was called 'Home Made', the address is complicated as has those little curly things, would be best for people to look up the web site www.homemadeistanbul.com
the people at the bar were amazing, we sat in a huge open window 1 metre from the tram line and trams full of commuters whizzing by, what an experience.   Our friends whom we were meeting that night for dinner were walking by on the other side of the road, we called out to them and they came and chatted through the huge open window.   The proprietor called them in and said, please sit with your friends and have complimentary apple tea, which is very much served everywhere, like warm apple juice.   Then after we finished our drink and our friends had gone they gave us complimentary apple tea.
