        Pleasant stay, relaxing hotel”
        The hotel is very well located close to Haga Sofia with lots of shops and cute little cafes and restaurant on the street and many more on adjacent streets. The room was normal, nothing special. The furniture was a bit dated as certainly the towels and sheets, but otherwise the room was comfortable and clean. The breakfast was terrible - nothing seemed fresh, but the price and location of the hotel made up for it.

        Omar and Mohamad Did Not Disappoint”
        We flew on Turkish Airlines to Copenhagen for a Baltic cruise. Since I've never been to Istanbul, I was happy for the stopover both ways. From the many good reviews on TripAdvisor, we decided to stay in Basileus Hotel for the stopovers. Omar and Mohamad truly made our brief stays relaxing and enjoyable. They are like old friends going the extra miles and attentive to our needs. We ate at a neighborhood restaurant thinking they would take our credit card, or at least Dollars, but they didn't. We walked back to ask if Omar would exchange a small bill for us. He gladly did it; and we were able to pay for our food which, by the way, was VERY good! We had a pleasant walk to see the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. This hotel is as one reviewer put it - a 3-star hotel with a 5-star service. And the breakfast was very good as well. Only problems are the fridge wasn't cold, and the TV didn't work on our second overnight stay.

        They give a real personal touch to the interactions; that's probably the main reason for people selecting this hotel. The breakfast was wonderful with nice selection of cheese, Olives and bread etc. Overall a great place to stay.

        Our stay in Istanbul”
        While reviewing hotels for our trip to Turkey, my husband came across Basileus hotel. Located just off of Sultanahmet main road, this hotel was a great pick. Right near all the great landmarks, such as Blue Mosque and Basilica Cistern, this hotel is a ggood budget hotel. The rooms are cozy and the staff extremely friendly. We were treated to turkish coffee upon our arrival and even though we arrived early, Salim the manager made it a point to get our room ready before the regular check in time and even gave us breakfast at no extra charge. Muhammad and Omar who also work shifts at the front desk are extremely courteous and helpful with whatever we needed, whether it was for our room or info about places to visit or things to do. The kitchen help would also make us malameen everyday for breakfast cos it was my favorite (a local version of scrambled eggs). All in all, we would say that out visit was made even more pleasurable due to the staff and their friendly nature.

        Depending on your speed, blue mosque was about 10-15 minutes away. My old mother and my 4 year old managed to walk it there, uphill in parts. Staff were super friendly, Mohammed was helpful. Breakfast was simple and good value. Rooms were clean, we took 2 family rooms, which was was clean. No elevators if you require lifts, thought the flight of steps did good workout.

        Very humble and cooperative staff. The Manager Guided us so well to move around that we didn’t feel need to hire any guide. Location is superb because many of the attractions are in sultan ahmet area or close to it so one can simply walk from the hotel to all these attractions. Good free breakfast also 😉. Highly recommended!

Hotel is in need of some reno but it is still good. breakfast was ok. walking distance to attractions in istanbul. there are shops and supermarkets all along the streets. have to be careful walking the streets s vehicles passing quite dangerous. in fact the whole istanbul the roads are busy. airport to hotel cost 25 euro which is reasonably arranged by the hotel. we are already planning our 2nd trip to this beautiful country n our choice would probably this cozy place
