No complaints here, very central, 3 minutes away from the very centre, the historic one I mean, convenient to restaurants, and the metro line and very accommodating and helpful. Rooms are nice and bright, clean with a safe, and good value at around €26 a night. I'd come back.

This by far the best hotel I've been to! The staff were very welcoming, helpful & polite. Basileus hotel is also very close to the highest attractions like the blue mosque and little Sofia hagia mosque. The breakfast has a variety of different food also very delicious and very fresh. I highly recommend going to basileus hotel!!

We stayed in March 2016. We were first greeted by the magnificent Selim, who explained to us everything we needed to know about the area, took our bags to our room, and helped us get situated. We came back to Selim again and again because he was friendly, funny, and knowledgeable. The rooms were nice: clean, good amount of space,...

I stayed here in November 2016 on a food discovery trip during the quiet season in Istanbul. The staff were incredibly helpful to our needs and really went out of their way to make us feel welcome and ensure we got the most out of our visit to Istanbul. The hotel is very clean and comfortable with a huge breakfast...

I stayed at Basileus Hotel for two nights and I highly recommend it. The location is great, especially for a first-time visitor. It's within walking distance to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and other major attractions. Rooms are clean, quiet and comfortable. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Even though I arrived a few hours before the check-in time,...

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.
