We spent a lovely week at the Basileus. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. Our room, No 206 was very nice and tastefully furnished. There is air conditioning and double glazing, we also had a small balcony It was quiet, spotlessly clean, with a comfortable bed with a two comfortable armchairs and an ottoman.
The shower was excellent and there was a large bath. The bath was quiet high so care had to be taken getting in and out of the shower.
There was a bar fridge in the room to keep your water cool which was great.
There isn't tea and coffee making facilities in the room but there is Coffee and Turkish Tea available in the foyer which is complimentary - we would take it to our room and have it there.
Ekrem, Yusef and Omar were always available with helpful information and a friendly welcome when we’d get home after a long day. Nothing was too much trouble for them. They recommended places to eat - all excellent choices. Ekrem even booked our tickets for the palace online saving us a wait in a long queue to buy them.
Breakfast was very good with something for everyone and always a good selection of fresh fruit. Omelette was available if requested and was excellent.
The location is good, an easy walk from the hotel to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Basilica System and Topkapi Palace. It is also a short walk to the tram stop. The Grand Bazaar and the Spice Market are also an easy walk from the hotel.
We would stay there again without hesitation.
