Very good 8.0
The hotel was a little noisy, the walls are not sound proof and we could hear the children next door. Outside of this we were satisfied with everything else.

It is nice little hotel in old town of Istanbul, area of Sultan Ahmet. So many sights are walking distance as they have written on their page. You might run out of hot water if you intend to shower at busy morning times. Breakfast is okeyish, it is going to be same stuff everyday if you plan to stay for more 2-3 days. Staff are very helpful with any help you need. They let us do late check out on our request and offered to store our luggage even after that. There is free tea-coffee-water dispenser at the lobby with little sweet treats. One suggestion: please try to name the stuff you put at the breakfast room so we know whats what. some varities on different days would be great.

Best hotel anyone can ever dream of
This is the best hotel anyone can ever dream of. Selim, Murad & Omer were very welcoming and helpful just like a family. I stayed there with a family for almost 5 days and the hotel itself, rooms, service, breakfast and staff get 5 out of 5. Very close to the famous tourist spots and value for money. Proper guidance was provided for visiting attractions and airport pickup / drop via private taxi service was provided as well.

Wonderful stay
Wonderful service. Fast responses. Great location. Breakfast was fantastic. Quick airport shuttle. Very convenient. Terrific customer service! Had a long layover and booked at Basileus hotel and had incredible experience. 24 hour layover turned into a mini getaway because of Basileus hotel. Location is great and convenient. 10 minute walk to blue mosque and Hagia Sophia.

Basileus vow!
Excellent Comfort on a budget, great value for money in the heart of Sultanahmet, full of old-fashioned charm. Excellent location, just a 5-15 minuets walking distance to most of the premier tourist attractions like The ancient Hippodrom, Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia, Spice Market, and the Aya Sofya, the gardens, Grand Bazaar, massive covered market (where everyone comes), and Basilica Cistern (one of Istanbul's most surprising tourist attractions). I loved the meandering olden streets, shops & restaurants along the street, no high rise buildings, no hustle bustle, quiet, serene, environs. Its just like a cozy home, where the managers are very amiable, friendly, very cultured & responsive. And the on- the- house sumptuous breakfast, free water bottles, tea, coffee, and other assistance add to the charm of Basileus. Thank and Accolades to you Mr Umer & Mr Ahmad! Keep it up!

An absolutely wonderful hotel, extremely friendly & helpful staff, lots of good advice on restaurants & places to visit. Our rooms were cleaned and fresh towels left every day. Good choice of food for breakfast each day. Great location and extremely good value for the money paid. We will stay here again when we revisit Istanbul.
