I'm not used to say that but I really felt in love with this place. The staff is incredibly nice and helpful. Rooms are awesome, big and the place is quiet for sleeping. The location is perfect for visiting Sulthanamet. And the breakfast is… how to say… the best breakfast I've ever done in a hotel. Next time in Istambul, it will be this place for sure.
very friendly behavior ,actually they were the best part in helping us to reach various places they guided us any time we wanted,when we reached back to our rooms they kept our rooms neat & tidy , we begin our day with the wonderful breakfast which includes many items and are tasty too... Really like to thank Mr. Akram for being a good companion,also his bro Mr.Saleem and their uncle
The hosts were fantastic, very helpful and informative. The location is near all the historic sites and the neighborhood is safe to walk around at night. Hotel is very charming and there are really nice touches like awesome deserts and cookies near the tee and coffee area.
Nothing place is great.
Cleanliness and the comfort of the facilities
Getting the shower to the right temperature was difficult. Cupboards could be better,particularly for packing space eg drawers
Excellent location, very good value for money
Staff was especially helpful with suggestions and recommendations Location is great Breakfast was big with variety of choices Provided a nice crib
Bathroom had a window with shade, but shade wouldn't close the whole way.
The excellent staff were helpful and nothing was too much trouble. They were great with the kids and even organised a surprise birthday cake for our little boy. Hotel was a lovely boutique hotel close to all attractions.
Spacious room, very helpful staff
Our room felt humid, even though we ventilated it for a whole sunny day.
Basileus is a small hotel at the heart of old Istanbul, next to excellent little restaurants and reasonably-priced souvenir shops. The rooms are large, the bathroom had a jacuzzi, Wi-Fi is free, and the service very friendly. We had to leave in the middle of the night for Ataturk airport and the night manager made sure to pack us a breakfast to go. Would definitely stay there again and would recommend the place to budget travelers - families and students traveling in groups (each room can accommodate at least three people).
location, breakfast, hotel service, possitive and well behaved stuff
nothing to mention
Excellent service, great location and very comfortable rooms at a great price. Will definitely stay there again.
Great location and great staff. The hotel is located within walking distance of major attractions in Istanbul. The staff went the extra mile to help us with everything we needed, they made us feel at home. If we come back to Istanbul we will surely stay here again, and we recommend it to anyone that wants to visit Istanbul.
The staff was excellent. The rooms were clean and warm. The hotel had cookies, cakes, water and teas every day at the ground floor, free of charge. The breakfast was nice.
The first room was spacious and nice, but it had a weird smell like mould and the flush in the bathroom had a problem from the beginning until it broke down. The staff was very helpful and offered us to change room. The second room was smaller, but cute. The hotel was a bit far from any public transportation. The nearest was Sultanahmet station, about 10-15 minutes away plus it was a slope.
Liked everything about the hotel.from cleanliness to the hospitality of the staff.its a family run business,hence they are fully into it. The breakfast was wonderfull and the reception was 24*7.always ready to provide all the information.and special thanks to akram, the owner for all the arrangements.will definetly promote to everyone visiting istanbul.
Really lovely staff who are very helpful make this great choice for anyone visiting Istanbul. The hotel is brilliantly located in the old part of the city close to many of the main sights.
location, price, and staff were excellent. Great breakfast.
nothing to complain about.
The hotel was in the perfect location, just minutes from the Blue Mosque and walking distance to trams. Their breakfast had so much food that you never started the day hungry. Also the staff gave me all the best suggestions for what to see and where to eat. I was traveling for five weeks and this was one of my favorite stays during my travels.
Very central hotel: just a short walk away from the Blue mosque and Hagia Sophia. Amazing breakfast and extremely friendly and helpful staff.
Staff, couldn't do enough to help Location, 5 mins to Blue Mosque Value, excellent price and even included eggs for breakfast however you want them
The staff were very helpful and the hotel was very nice. It's a traditional Turkish hotel and is family run. The breakfast was very good and they supplied lovely cakes and coffee in the afternoon in the lobby.the hotel is very close to the old town.
Service, location, and cleanliness. We had an amazing stay at the Basileus and one of the reasons is the service. It's a family run business and everyone is so helpful and kind. You're greeted every time you walk by the main desk and you're asked what you have planned for the day or how your day went
We were on the basement floor so wifi was a bit slow but no big deal at all. The lobby had an excellent signal
Lovely (helpful and hospitable) staff, fantastic location, nice breakfast.
Reception. Advise from Staff for visit, restaurant. All the person working in the hotel. Location of the Hotel.
Humm.....hard to find something, let's say: a little bit noisy.
All was good. Perfect travel!
