Beautiful hotel which is extremely homely with fantastic service. You can not go wrong staying at the Basileus Hotel, Istanbul. The Hotel is situated in the heart of Istanbul, no more than 500 meters away from the Blue Mosque, the Grand Bazaar, Arasta Bazaar and the tram station.

I have stayed at Basileus twice, once in 2012 and recently this past august. As usual you are greeted with warm happy faces from either Omer, Selim, or Ekrem. Their knowledge of Istanbul and the surrounding cities are very valuable. The stay was wonderful! Perfect location, perfect rooms, perfect breakfast and service! I highly recommend Basileus for your stay in...

We stayed at Basileus over a birthday weekend and this place does not disappoint. This was our first trip to Istanbul and there is no other place I would stay from here on out. We will be back. Turkey is extremely affordable right now and the price of this hotel can't be beat. The location is perfect as everything you...

We arrived on Christmas Eve 2916 and Salim made us so welcome. Our room is very nice considering the price range (below $100) and Salim was very accommodating to extend our stay for another day at even a better price. There is good warm friendly restaurant just across the hotel. The hotel is so close to all the must go...

He was also very insistence in helping us with our luggage as they do not...

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.
