A family-run hotel whose owners and staff go out of their way to provide an excellent experience. Nice and clean rooms, helpful staff, great breakfast; all included in a super affordable package. Its location is popular with tourists (5 walking minutes to Blue Mosque), there is a little convenience store across the street. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Paying a little extra will get you more space, and apparently some rooms even have balconies.

We were 3 couples and a baby on our way to Tel Aviv and decided to stop in Istanbul for 2 nights. We selected this hotel because we wanted to stay in the Old City and I must say, for the price we paid, I did not have very high expectations. I was completely wrong! The service we got from every one in the staff was superb. The owner (I believe that his name is Mr. Muharrem) even gave my son and his wife a ride to a restaurant in his personal car. Everything was perfect, and the attention to detail was un-paralleled, from help with our luggage, to a crib for the baby, to clean and well-appointed rooms (including shampoos, conditioners, and other amenities), a fabulous FULL breakfast that included eggs cooked to order and an enormous buffet. No, they did NOT pay me to write this review; I just had to relay what an excellent experience it has been for us to stay there. Looking for a great little hotel in a great location with superb staff and service at a reasonable rate? Look no further than the Basileus.

Room Tip: The room all the way in the back is adjacent to a bar; and sometimes the noise level is a bit high (not enough to keep you awake). No problem with any of the other rooms (we had 3 of them)

The ONLY reason this place gets five stars from me is that there is no way for me to award SIX!

Don't believe the other glowing reviews here because they don't go far enough!

Warm, welcoming, EAGER to help, Omar and Ekrem personify Turkish hospitality at its finest, and are always pleasant, friendly, and SO willing to assist!

Seriously, staying here is alone worth visiting Istanbul.

If you have mobility issues, there is no elevator, and you must go uphill to attractions, but its only 5 minutes from Hippodrome, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, etc.

STAY HERE! Just do it!!!!!! If you don't like it, send ME your bill!

I cannot add much more to the previous comments without repeating much of what has been said. A great family run hotel, excellent location, friendly and very informative and with a fantastic breakfast.
