I stayed in Basileus hotel in April 2014 for one night when I had my transit point in Turkey before flying to the USA. It was earlier recommended to me so I decided to try it out. When I arrived at the hotel I fell in love with its location: tiny hilly stony streets reminding me of Istanbul I saw in the movies. Then, when I entered the hotel the next thing that caught my attention was the ceiling. It was so unique and beautiful that I didn't notice how my waiting time for registration flew by. I asked about it and the hotel staff took time to explain to me the work invested in different pieces of the ceiling. While I was waiting and looking at the ceiling, I noticed how every visitor was treated specially, starting from the check-in process to explaining the area. After the check-in I was accompanied to my room and yes, this was exactly what I was expecting and more. Simple but sharp, cozy and clean, and a super comfortable mattress! In terms of the price I must admit it was an exceptional value for its location, service and coziness. Next time I am in Istanbul with a family or alone, I will certainly go back to Basileus for it impressed me for long :).
