We stayed at this great little hotel for 2 nights. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. They happily accommodated our early arrival. The breakfast was included and quite good. The room was clean and charming. The best part was the location. We were in walking distance of all the major sites. We would definitely stay here again.

The Basileus was a great base to explore Istanbul. We stayed 6 nights and the hotel provided us with detailed advice as to sites to visit, times to go and how to get there . The hotel was beautifully furnished and our room was spacious and clean. It is a lovely boutique hotel that provided a good breakfast to start... More

Basileus has excellent value for money rooms & a real good breakfast spread. The hosts are very friendly & flexible to changing needs. Also, very insightful of the local area. It is very nicely located with walking distance to blue mosque, hagya sofya, basilica & Topakapi palace

Perfect with outstanding service ! I like many other choose this hotel because of the great reviews and I would say in my 25 years of traveling the world I've never had better service than this hotel provides.

We stayed at Basileus for two nights in December 2014. Fantastic hotel. It's a no frills hotel with the following features: 1) Outstanding service. 2) Very clean and well maintained. 3) Excellent location. It was a 5-10 minute walk to Hagia Sohpia, Blue Mosque etc. All the key sites were very close. 5) Great breakfast with made to order eggs/omelettes... More

There's nothing fancy about this hotel, but it is run by family members who take great pride in the place and have dreams for its future. The rooms are simple, but more spacious than those of other hotels in Turkey, and they are clean. The brothers/cousins were super helpful with recommendations for restaurants and activities; they'll make calls for you... More

We booked this hotel based upon reviews here in Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. If you are looking for a plush room - this is not your place. It is relatively basic but very clean. Some of the towels in bath are old and could use replacing. Some of the wiring in the building is a little shaky ...... More

As others have said, the Basileus is a great place to stay in Istanbul. It's within easy walking distance of the Hippodrome/Blue Mosque area (although we thought the whole Sultanahmet area was very walkable), it's a good price, the rooms and baths are great, the breakfast is very good, and the help we got from the brothers/cousins who run the...
