Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 June 2017

We have stayed in a lot of hotels in this area, Some had tiny rooms, others had loud street noise and were close to the call to prayer loudspeakers, others had paper thin walls. This hotel was the opposite- no street noise, a pleasant room (we got a superior room- the upgrade) because we had a lot of luggage. We could not hear our neighbors, the room was clean and attractive, the help and service from the staff was excellent, and the breakfast was great. No complaints, no criticisms. We are very satisfied customers, and the room rate was super. The wifi is strong and fast! Lots of hot water.

Room Tip: Top floor was excellent, but there is no elevator.

Spent 5 nights at this place last week. Excellent location (about a 5-10 mins uphill walk from here to Blue Mosque/ Tram station). The hotel is clean and serves a very good Turkish breakfast every morning.

The place is managed by 3 gentlemen who are happy to talk to you at any time you want, but are not intrusive. They will do their best to help you with whatever information/ assistance you want. In our case, they even lent their Istanbulkart (transport card) to us for the duration of our stay!

In-room Wi-Fi is available, but speed is average (good for web, emails etc). They also have a free computer in the lobby that you can use and have free cookies at all times of the day for you to munch on. What more can one want!! :-)

P.S. Ask for Omar and Ekrem at the reception, they seemed the most helpful!

Room Tip: Rooms on 1st floor (201, 203) are better than the ones on 2nd floor

This was our 1st visit to Turkey. We'd read good things about Basileus Hotel in TripAdvisor & other online resources it's true. From the moment we arrived & were upgraded to a 1st floor room (201) with a balcony looking over the street it's wonderful hotel and our room was very clean and supper, we were treated like so well by the friendly & helpful hotel staff Omer.

Room Tip: Request for a 1st floor room with balcony & views
