Hotel is located not far from main sights like Sultanahmet, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi palace ... Breakfast was very good even for child, also turkish coffee was available for free. Receptionist gave a lot of information regarding facilities in Istanbul, it helped to save money and to avoid some not acceptable things. Room was clean and fresh, water was free of... More

My wife and I had a great 5 night stay here. While the price was that of a budget hotel, our experience was so much more. The room was spotlessly clean, the breakfast had excellent variety including omelettes made to order, and the staff took time to introduce us to the area and point out the many Istanbul attractions on...

We stayed at the Basileus hotel in November 2014. And it was an excellent stay. The hotel is very beautiful and clean, our room was spacious, cozy and warm, the breakfast was superb, besides, the hotel guests can enjoy tea and pastries at any time of the day. The staff at the reception was wonderful - very helpful, friendly and... More

This hotel is a clear example that service still triumphs. Stayed there with my wife for Holidays. Both Selim and Akram, who run the hotels always paid personal attention to us and were ever ready to help us out, be it with directions to a tourist place, choosing the right restaurant, or even buying the right stuff. It has all... More

Our three-night stay at this small family-owned hotel in the historic Sultanahmet district was great. The free pick-up at the airport, arranged in advance was fine, even though it took a bit of time to find our luggage claim, The hotel is clean, friendly, and the rooms were above budget level in amenities. The two brothers running the hotel and... More

This was the second time we stayed at Basileus Hotel within three and a half years. We brought additional family with us for this stay. How can everything be perfect at the Basileus- the location, customer Service, breakfast, cleanliness, free wifi and the cost? Well, it undeniably is!! We used to start the day with an awesomely generous breakfast buffet... More

Basileus is a wonderful hotel run by a very helpful and welcoming family. We arrived early without a reservation and were lucky they had a room free that day. While we waited for it to be ready they let us have breakfast (which we were not entitled to that day). The breakfast was really good with quite a lot of... More

This hotel has the best customer service and staff/owners that I have ever experienced in my life. The hotel is just a short walk away from the Blue Mosque. The hotel has free wifi, and each floor has it's own router to ensure you have a strong wifi connection. The free breakfast is wonderful. Again - the hotel staff and... More
