                  The staff was great and more then great, the hotel is extra clean, the food was perfect and we felt really welcomed. Basileus hotel, we are coming back!!!

                • Family with children
                  10.0

                  We were very nervous about choosing a hotel in the Sultanamet. So pleased we chose this one. The room was smart and clean - refurbished 15 months ago. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I think I need to emphasize that point more - they were very in tune with what people want to see and do and give good recommendations. It is walking distance of most things you will want to see. The breakfast is basic but fine. Definitely wish to go back and spend more time located here.

                  These are actually not complaints. You are in a old area of a large city. You hear the call to prayer in the morning. You hear a car pass or people making noise late at night if you have a street room. It will be no different in any other hotel in this area. If that is really going to ruin your trip then bring some earplugs. But it did not bother us in the least just noting that it can happen.

                  I stayed with a friend and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. They told us to ring them if we needed any help when we were sightseeing & if they couldn't help us by phone they would be with us in a few minutes. This was re-assuring for 2 female tourists - luckily help was never needed but good to know we could call. They helped us with recommendations on where to go and what to do. I would say they go out of their way. We would definitely choose this hotel again and wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who wants to visit Istanbul.

                  Shower was not very powerful but it is such a minor thing when everything else was perfect

                  The hotel staff were outstanding - they explained everything we wanted to know and somethings we ought to know but didn't, they helped with every little thing and they charm was inexhaustable .... their approach made us feel we will go back to that particular hotel, next time we go to Istanbul

                  We liked everything

                  The staff - Yusuf was very helpful, accomodating, and kind. Always had everything ready as promised. He made our trip/visit very enjoyable.

                  The beds are uncomfortable - other than that - everything was great.

                  Large rooms and good bathrooms. Comfortable and clean.

                  Breakfast could be improved - in particular one would expect real coffee and not just instant Nescafé. Also one staff member not very commercial.

                  A great little hotel, close to historic areas and restaurants. Friendly staff, great breakfast spread.

                  Bed mattress a little hard.

                  Staff is very friendly and helpful Small but nice lobby Clean rooms

                  Noise insulation is quite poor On the ground floor the air is very humid

                  "Echo" at the desk and other staff made us feel welcome from the first. He acted as concierge and front desk,etc. Very nice and welcoming. Hotel nicely appointed and except for the traffic noise because of temporary construction it would have been very nice. Huge bathroom with full tub, nice breakfast with good variety and service.

                  Could be a bit more soundproof from room to room and hall noise. Needs a trash container in the room in addition to the one in the bath. Good window /exterior door soundproofing.

                  The Hotel was close to all the main sights but most of all was the exceptional customer service we received from all members of staff at this hotel -they were all superb knowledgeable and proud of their city gave us some great information.

                  Location is outstanding close to all tourist attraction and within walking distance to the fishery market (10 minute walk). Hotel staffs were great Mr. Yousef, Mr. Akram, and Mr. Muhram provided great suggestions weather for dining, shopping or for sightseeing. However, Mr. Yousef has a great choice in restaurants definitely you should ask him. I would definitely come back and can’t wait till my next visit.

                  I used the family room and for four people is a bit tight and not enough cabinet’s I had to use my luggage

                  The staff were excellent. Location was good

                  Rooms bit grim and basic. Nothing wrong with them bit basic. Could hear the bathroom next door which was annoying.
