From the minute we arrive till our last day in Istanbul the staff at Basileus hotel took care of us.
Every morning Fatih greeted us with a smile and a great breakfast. The staff at the Basileus hotel(Ekram, Usaf, Omer, Mehmet, Maharram, and Mustafa) go out of their way to make you feel at home. They were also a great resource for recommending restaurants and places to visit in Istanbul.This hotel is also close to all the main historical monuments and the Tram. After having a busy day of sightseeing and shopping we were sometimes to tired to go out to eat and the staff would helps us by recommending and calling restaurants for take out. Next to the hotel is a small convenient store where we would get our beverages( including a good selection of Turkish wine). Close to the hotel are several bakeries where they have fresh bread all day and good pastries.
The rooms were clean and spacious. We were there for seven days and housekeeping always maintained our room with fresh clean linen and towels.
The staff at Basileus hotel made our visit to Istanbul a great experience. Maharram and Mehmet were always so eager to share their knowledge of Turkish history and culture.They went out of their way to take us to some of the great eateries in Istanbul.
After our great stay in Basileus Hotel we are definitely coming back to this home away from home!
