I have recently returned from a 5 night stay at the Basileus. I booked because of all the reviews on this site and I was more than happy. The hotel is excellent: the room was beautifully clean; comfortable double bed; lovely sheets and pillow; new sparkling bathroom; armchair; good lighting. Breakfast very good. The real winner in this hotel is the staff. The brothers run the hotel and all were excellent and Omer superlative. Nothing was to much trouble. Always available 24 hours, could not have been more hospitable.
There was a problem with my taxi from the airport which was not on time though it finally arrived.
As soon as I got to the hotel, I was welcomed with profuse and genuine apologies and they reduced my bill by15% in recompense. Could not better that.
I will definitely be back. I am an elderly man travelling alone and I felt perfectly at home for the whole stay. My ipad broke down and the brothers, the hoteliers, did everything to help me with contacting Apple and getting the replacement ipad.
The ambient heating in the hotel was excellent during the cold days of January and the temperature of the heating in one's room was on a controllable thermostat.
