Very helpful staff. . Enjoyed the trip to Istanbul. ..
Nothing all good
The staff are very friendly and helpful with your needs. The generous breakfast is amazing with a wide selection of fresh and cooked food. Also teas and cakes available in the lobby. Very clean hotel, some small quirks but take that with the small price. Stairs may not suit all but very centrally located in the old city to easily walk to major sites of interest. Istanbul is hilly with cobblestones. Basileus Hotel was a quiet haven to return to.
Everything about this hotel is wonderful. From the moment I arrived to leaving, it's impossible to find any fault. The staff are the most helpful and friendly I have ever known. It's location is perfect and the hotel has a wow factor.. The reception is so pretty. I shall definitely go back and make sure my friends go there too. Perfect in every way Thankyou everyone at Basileus Hotel.
Nothing to write here ! Was perfect No negatives.
Customer Service was excellent! Location was very convenient and not noisy! The room was very comfortable and a great value for the price! Breakfast was quite good and always fresh:)
I wasn't able to stay additional days!
Friendly approach Nice and kind staff Location
Plumbing conditions (problems in the room) Towels in bad condition (some of these) Noise early in the morning (for economy rooms - next to the kitchen)
The helpful friendly staff. Great breakfast Terrific tea & snacks
My husband thought the bed was too hard
I have never stayed at hotel and lent so heavily on staff for help - which they happily gave with a sense of pride about their city. When our travelling companions had to return to Australia for a family emergency they did all they could calling hotels etc in other parts of Turkey to secure refunds. Loved the afternoon tea/snacks available no charge. So to everyone reading this - stop searching and just book this hotel!! It was superb and tremendous value for money.
Normally we travel with a more generous budget hence I approached this hotel with trepidation . I was very pleasantly surprised and was taught a valuable lesson. You don't always have to pay a high price for excellence. This hotel deserves applause and only the best of reviews
The owners/staff provided an unbelievably high level of service. Location is excellent. Food excellent. Quality and value for the money excellent.
Location is great- 5 min walking from all main sites in Istanbul (Hagia Sofia, Topkapi, Blue mosque) and staff is simply wonderful.. they help us out a lot organizing our trip and prevent issues
Some important things were complimentary: afternoon tea and cake, bottled water, conditioner as well as shampoo. The staff were extraordinarily cheerful and helpful.
Ecrem made us feel very welcome nothing was too much trouble we wished we could have stayed longer, really recommend the hotel to other travellers, already making plans to return.
In terms of comfort, cleanliness, quality of rooms, quality of breakfast, wi-fi availability, value, and the helpfullness of the staff, we give this hotel a 10 out of 10. But the best thing about it is it's location, which is within easy walking distance of virtually every major tourist attraction in central old Istanbul (Fatih District). You just can't do better.
Friendly and warm staff. Very Clean. Excellent service and food.Great value.
Great friendly bunch of people genuinely passionate about serving their customers. Loved their hospitality. Oh and lovely omelettes for breakfast:)
- On the house Cakes and cookies -Cleanliness - Staff was great and extremely helpful - Location was good (but could be better)
- Nothing really...just that our room (could be limited to us) was a bit small with little natural light - Location could have been better...was 650m from the nearest tram station and it was uphill (but we enjoyed burning those calories because it helped us chomp down on those iskender kebaps ;) )
All the personal touches
The staff were always welcoming and went out of their way to assist with anything. If you did not need help they were still genuinely interested in what you did for the day or had great suggestions for dinner that night or what to do the next day. These did not appear to be linked to a commission for the staff. Like much of Turkey, tea and hospitality was always available at any time.
The staff were amazing - nothing too much trouble (and all with a smile)! Great breakfast. Very comfortable room. Reliable fast wifi. Minutes walk from many Sultanahmet attractions.
Central location; friendly, smiling and helpful staff; tasty omelet for breakfast; clean nice rooms. The price is appropriate.
Helpful staff Amazing location Great value
The owners were wonderful, one time reaching in the drawer to give us 100TL when we were short for a taxi.."Pay us later" they said
NOTHING WARM FRIENDLY SMALL HOTEL
The staff did everything they could do to help and more. Location was great, close enough to the square yet far enough away from the hustle and bustle. Was great value for money. Happy that rate included breaky & wifi. Amenities were fine.
The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful--showing exactly how to get to places, offering to pack me a lunch when I had to leave for the airport at 3:30 am, etc. Great location close to many sights and restaurants. Nice breakfast buffet. Safe and fridge in the room. Great deal for a comfortable hotel.
It's not fancy but is clean and comfortable.
