Stayed at this hotel just for one night unfortunatelly but we could stayed longer. As soon as we got in we felt like at home. Ekrem and Selim where perfect hosts. We arrived early and we where able to get in our room before check in time. Perfect since we where very tiered. Room was spacious, imaculate and clean. Since... More

We choose this Hotel because of the great reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. First the obvious:- Great location!. The breakfast is better than most with sausages and omelettes available. The first night we folded a blanket to serve as a pillow because I normally sleep with two pillows. The next day, without me saying anything, they doubled... More

Basileus hotel conciliates high professionalism with warmth and good quality, all of this at a very low price. Everything has been said before, but really there is no negative point to this place. Would highly recommend if you stay in Istanbul.

The owners really put lots of passion into this business. Excellent service! the room is very clean and spacious. Excellent location - 10 minutes away from the blue mosque. When you stay there, please spend some time chatting with Moharem, Ekrem, Salim...you will really learn a lot about the history and culture of Turkey, which will certainly make your trip... More

This is an excellent little hotel in the Sultanamet district of Istanbul. You will see from all the other good reviews about the lovely rooms, excellent breakfasts, free tea, coffee and cakes and biscuits available all day. It is in an excellent location to visit all the sights of Istanbul. But the best thing about this hotel is the staff.... More

This is a place, where you are always at home. Hotel located in the center of Sultanahmet, so you can easily reach the main sights, but it is hidden from the city noise. Tidy room, generous breakfast buffet, free tea and cookies at the comfy lounge. But the most important thing is amazing people who work here. Ask someone about... More

We chose Basileus Hotel based on the numerous excellent reviews that had put them in TripAdvisor's top 20. Now my review is stacking up with those. This Hotel is perfectly located, walking distance from everything you want (restaurants, shops, blue mosque, Hagia Sofia, Grand Bazar, Cistern Mosque, near the waterfront, metro station, etc..). The room was spacious, clean, tasteful with... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night on both ends of our trip to Italy (2 nights total). Both experiences were positive. The location of the hotel is great, just a short walk to the Blue Mosque. We paid to have the hotel send someone to get us from the airport. It was easy to find the person... More
