I liked the location of the hotel, it was near to important sites and near city train, I felt at home and among family, the staff were keen to please and the men on the reception desk always asked if any help was needed and if everything was ok. The hotel was spotless clean. I did not like the location of breakfast room, it was in basement area, better if it was on top overseeing the lovely nature.

Every single hotel staff are amazing people. If I visit Istanbul again, I will be sure to look for this hotel.

The hotel is clean the service awesome the staff very nice and helpful. And they provide very good selection for breakfast. The location for the hotel fantastic all is walking distance to all attractions. Love it and have great time

This hotel was at a great location. It was just a 10 minute walking distance from Sultan Ahmet and Aya Sophia (making it very close to the Istanbul Tram). Omar and Muhammad were very kind and helpful during our stay. They helped us get around (shuttle and taxi services), provided a lot of advice about traveling/eating, and were very kind. This is also a very family and child friendly place to stay. We will stay here again the next time we are in Istanbul!

This hotel is in a quiet section of the Old City, but within walking to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and other major attractions. The front desk staff is incredibly helpful with directions, information and recommendations. My flight landed early in the morning and I arrived three or four hours before the check-in time. They had a room ready and offered me the complimentary breakfast, which was very kind. Rooms were clean, quiet and comfortable. The breakfast spread offered a nice variety of food. I would definitely stay here again.

Found this hotel on Orbitz and it fully justified the reviews. We unfortunately only had a quick overnight stay, but definitely plan to return to the beautiful city and friendly people of Istanbul. Omar was extremely welcoming and gracious. He gave us tips on where to go for our brief visit and prepared sandwiches and fruit for us to take in the morning, since we had to leave before the start of breakfast. We booked a family room for our family of 4, and were surprised and very thankful when Omar instead gave us 2 rooms for the same price, explaining that the hotel was not full and he thought we would be more comfortable that way (which we were after all staying together in Paris the past several days with a shared shower and toilet). The people of Istanbul were very warm and welcoming, and the city has so many incredible sights and communities. We wish we had more time there, but plan to return in coming years and will definitely stay at Hotel Basileus again.

Great tip and above arrange hospitality. They are very caring and make sure you do not overspend in attractions recommending you the best deal and giving you an idea of what are you expected to pay. Breakfast buffet was delicious. Very satisfied
