  • What is the difference between economy superior and standard. Double room.looking for a room with a view

    Hi!! I want tell this at the beginning we don't have sea or major monument view. We only have street view. The difference between the standard and economy rooms is which floor the room is located. Let me explain you in both rooms’ details; First type economy rooms which are located on the ground floor (lobby floor) have little window, but the size of the room is larger than the size of upper floor standard rooms. Second type economy rooms which are located on the basement floor have full window from ceiling to ground, these rooms are quite large as well and of course larger than upper floor rooms. I know it is hard to imagine, our building has different shape that is why it is hard to visualize. Standard rooms are located on ground floor (lobby floor) or upper floors and these standard rooms have little balcony and full window from ceiling to ground. And our superior rooms are bigger than standard rooms. Other than these, the facilities in both type of the rooms are the same. In fact there is no very big difference, it is mainly preference. The demand shaped our room types, as the upper floor required more often, maybe it is human nature, we lowered the ground floor and basement floor room rates. Please note that we didn’t increase standard room rates. For us both type of rooms are the same. Kind Regards, Selim , Basileus Hotel Manager
