This was the first time my wife and I have travelled to Istanbul and we felt so happy that we had chosen to stay at the Basileus Hotel. We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights.
First of all, the staff is wonderful. They made us feel as if they really cared about us having an enjoyable vacation in Istanbul. Our room was spacious, very clean, and located close to major destinations which we wanted to see, such as the Blue Mosque. Although the hotel itself seems to be a bit off the beaten path, once you get to know the way to where you want to go, you will find that you can easily walk to many places from this hotel.
The breakfast is fine, although after 3 days of eating the same breakfast we would have liked to have more variety of food. Still, we felt the breakfast was acceptable to us.
Although we stayed in Turkey for 4 nights, they were booked the first night so we stayed in another hotel. Thus, we had a chance to compare hotels and the Basileus Hotel was by far more superior in every way.
If you are in Istanbul, I highly suggest that you stay at this hotel, primarily because of the people working there. They were wonderful!!
