This is the most delightful hotel I have ever stayed in. The owners are two extremely pleasant brothers who go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and to make sure you enjoy Istanbul. They are full of advice and useful tips, they will organise trips or tours; they change money for you; organise adaptors and chargers...

The past reviews of this hotel are indeed true. For what you pay, the service is absolutely brilliant. Hotel location: 10 minutes walk from Hagia Sophia (Aya Sofia)/Hippodrome/Sultanahmet tram station. They provide free transport from Ataturk Airport (if you book more than 3 days) but if you're coming from Sabiha Gokcen Airport, the cheapest & convenient way to get there...

You book a hotel and you expect value for money. At the BASILEUS Hotel you get this without saying. But you get much more. As soon as you enter the house you feel like being with friends. Helpful day and night, smiling whenever you see each other. All the tips on good restaurants, hamams, must sees were 100% good places....

We booked the hotel based on the reviews on TA and were very happy with it. The personalized service is so hard to beat as compared to the other hotels. Would definitely return. The only downside is it is quite easy to get lost around the area, but no big deal and it gives you a chance to explore!

We booked this hotel for it's price and proximity to sites for our 36 hour layover from Rome. If we would have known what an amazing time we would have we would have stayed a few days longer. The Basileus has the BEST customer service we've experienced in a long time. They helped us plan our itinerary to maximize our...

We arrived in Istanbul on a cold rainy November evening. A Turkish smile beamed at us “Welcome to Basileus Hotel. Would you like some tea, coffee or a light snack”? Omar offers us a nicely arranged tray of cakes and cookies. “Definitely” we say. Thus began, a wonderful five-night stay for our Thanksgiving holiday in Turkey. As our hands were...

Pretty hard to express in words the feeling of warmness and the friendly atmosphere of this beautiful hotel. Just let Muharrem, Ekrem, Charlie and Omar help you, let them make you feel like home.

I picked this hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews, glad I did. Its 15 mins from Ataturk Airport. Its location is ideal, 5 mins walk to all the attractions of SultanAhmet / Old City area (hagia sofia,topkapi palace etc). Rooms and washrooms were really clean and in good condition, breakfast was also good. they can make omelettes on request as well....

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
