Great staff, good location
Basileus is conveniently located close to all the attractions, the front desk staff , Omar and Mohamed were very friendly and very helpful. Our cab driver had a hard time finding it so either the hotel should provide more detailed instructions on its location on its website or have a more visible sign. The hotel is across an old building/ ruin with a dome. The hotel does not an elevator so it could be a problem for guests if they have a issues climbing stairs. The bathroom cleanliness can be improved. The buffet breakfast has a large selection and is very tasty.

Basileus Hotel, Istanbul
Great Value, Superb People
My wife and I stayed there for 5 nights recently. Chose it for the great reviews and we were not disappointed. Excellent location - close to all the old city landmarks. Reasonable size rooms and breakfast for what we paid. Rooms are neat and cleaned daily. However, highlight of this little boutique hotel is its wonderful staff. Starting from Selim and Omar on the front desk to the cleaning and breakfast staff, everyone was friendly and willing to go out of their way to help us. Thank you folks for your hospitality!
