My husband and I stayed at the Basileus Hotel during our first ever visit to Istanbul. I can't say enough about how accommodating and helpful the Basileus staff was to us. Besides needing the normal help with directions, reservations, and so forth, we had the added issue that my husband was/is on crutches, with a broken foot. The Basileus folks... More

My girlfriend and I stay here from September 14th until September 18th. The hotel is perfectly situated within a 5 minute walk of the Blue Mosque and Aya Sofya. The hotel owners could not have been more accommodating providing recommendations and taking an active interest each day in what we had done. Every afternoon they provided tea and cake. Breakfasts...

All the staff were awesome, helping us in every way possible to make sure we had the best experience in Istanbul. The buffet breakfast was always topped and well looked after. I did not... More

We spent 2 nights at the Basileus at the end of our 15 day trip to Turkey and those 2 nights were among the highlights of our trip. This is a wonderful hotel with a great location, fair price and owners and staff that truly care about their guests and attend to all the details. Our room was on the... More

On June 27, 2014, after the preliminaries at Istanbul airport, I was taken to The Basileus Hotel, in Istanbul by one of the staff. Upon arrival, I was met and welcomed by one of the brothers Ekram. I stayed at the Basileus Hotel for three nights before going to Europe and other five nights upon my return. I was welcomed... More

I stayed at the Basileus for two nights and it was a great stay. The owners were very nice. I didn't spend much time in the hotel as I was on the go but the room was clean, small like other European hotels but had a fridge with bottled water and soda, and safe. There was street noise that could... More

Hotel Basileus was very conveniently located and has a fabulous staff to recommend agendas and make terrific restaurant recommendations. It's the personal service that makes this hotel stand out. The location is 10 minutes walk from the Blue Mosque and 15 minutes from the Grand Bazaar. The breakfast was lovely. A group of Aussies breezed in one evening asking for... More
