Beautiful hotel which is extremely homely with fantastic service. You can not go wrong staying at the Basileus Hotel, Istanbul. The Hotel is situated in the heart of Istanbul, no more than 500 meters away from the Blue Mosque, the Grand Bazaar, Arasta Bazaar and the tram station.

I visited Istanbul in August with my husband. He has stayed here before and have heard great things about it. There are many benefits to staying here:

1. Location is great
2. Knowledgeable staff such as Ekrem, selim, omer. Always had warm faces helping us address any questions we had.
3. Great service and very clean
4. Breakfast was delicious. Don't forget to order the omlette!

I have no regrets staying at Basileus hotel and I plan on staying there in the future!

I have stayed at Basileus twice, once in 2012 and recently this past august. As usual you are greeted with warm happy faces from either Omer, Selim, or Ekrem. Their knowledge of Istanbul and the surrounding cities are very valuable. The stay was wonderful! Perfect location, perfect rooms, perfect breakfast and service! I highly recommend Basileus for your stay in Istanbul. There is a reason they are ranked in the top! Thanks again for a wonderful stay and see you soon!

First of all, We were upgraded to a better room. Super thanks for that.

My wife and I felt very special during the duration of our stay. Everyone, esp the Reception guys were very hospitable and made sure that we are looked at.

The room size is good. It is clean and pleasant.

We will definitely be back again!

We stayed at Basileus over a birthday weekend and this place does not disappoint. This was our first trip to Istanbul and there is no other place I would stay from here on out. We will be back.

Turkey is extremely affordable right now and the price of this hotel can't be beat. The location is perfect as everything you want to see is walking distance. We walked to the Grand Bazaar (a must) in 10-15 minutes, the Blue Mosque, etc. The staff is incredibly friendly and welcoming. They told us everything we needed to know, including things to watch out for as tourists. The breakfast buffet is out of this world and I still can't believe it's included in the price. The hype is real. This place is a gem.

I have to also say that it's a shame what's happening in Turkey because it's affecting great businesses like Basileus. Turkey needs tourists and we felt extremely safe during our time there. Go and support great places like Basileus Hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms are great but if you can snag the room on the 3rd floor that looks out over one of the mos...
