This Hotel is certainly a Gem as has been depicted in the reviews. We have travelled the world quite extensively an stayed in many standards of hotels but we believe the BASILEUS surpassed them all. The hotel is more than comfortable and ideally situated but it is the staff who make this hotel. They could not do enough to make our stay in Istanbul memorable. Where else in the world would the concierge (Yusof) loan you 200 Turkish Lire until we could exchange money the next day. He also was very knowledgeable about his city and able to reccomend the important sites to see and good resonabley priced restaurants. When our pre arranged transport to the airport let us down, the boys were only too willing to transfer us in their own car and at no cost to ensure that we were able to meet our flight home. When we returned home, we received a wonderful email to thank us for staying with them - a nice thought to top off our holiday.
