Basileus Hotel, in the Sultanahmet area of Istanbul.
It's hard to imagine a more wonderful group of people operating a Hotel in Istanbul.
From the moment we arrived we were treated with great warmth and hospitality. Eko, Yusuf and Muharrem did absolutely all they could to make our stay enjoyable…..from the excellent restaurant choices to suggestions on seeing the sights.
You are in the heart of the old city and as others have mentioned, you are within 10 minutes walk of so many famous sights. (Blue Mosque, Ayasofya, Hippodrome, Basilica Cistern and Topkapi just a few minutes more.
We had superb breakfast each of the 4 mornings we were there….and what a selection….cereal, breads, yogurt, cold meats, cheese, juices and coffees etc. Onar would even cook you an omelette if you so desired. Although it doesn't have a restaurant, the rating below is for the breakfast provided. Beds in Turkey may be a little firmer than back home but that didn't bother us. The room was large, extremely clean and was air conditioned. We would not hesitate to stay again. Istanbul is a fascinating and vibrant city…….Turkey is amazing.
