Everyone run away. Dirty hotel, smell and mold everywhere. Dangerous hotel. The hotel must be closed !!!! I do not recommend anyone! We immediately bought another hotel. The hotel said we could leave and not charge. Now the hotel is lying. You don't want to be accommodated in this hotel. Already at the entrance is the smell of mold. Very dirty air conditioning and odor, noise from them. There are much better hotels in Istanbul. Don't buy !!!! Check out real photos. Do not read a fraudulent and paid rating.

Easy walk to Blue Mosque and tourist spots. Safe well-lit area with restaurants and shops. I like that it wasn't a touristy area. Friendly staff. The shower could use some work-pretty moldy but otherwise, the room was a nice big size.

This hotel was a chock for me. It’s dirty and there is black mold in the shower so you cant even feel clean after a shower. There was also mold on the walls. Please see pictures. Allowing visitors in such room should not be allowed. This is a health risk.

We stayed at this hotel recently and the staff were fantastic from the booking throughout the stay and beyond. They even contacted me a week after I left regarding lost baggage. The location is great and rooms spacious. If I return to Istanbul and I hope I get the chance to I'll definitely stay back at this hotel. The staff made it very memorable indeed. Dan Australia

The backbone of this hotel are Ahmet and Faruk. They called taxis, ordered food, provided restaurant referrals, walked me to multiple points of interest, and provided great laughs! The quality of service, comfortable rooms, location, and price are absolutely phenomenal. Do not hesitate to book this hotel during your stay in Istanbul!

It was absolutely a good experience for us. The hotel is located pretty close to almost everything. Easy to walk historical area. Faruk and Tuğrul are giving exceptional service. Especially Faruk goes above and beyond for customers to feel comfortable and home. I must tell complex doesn't have an elevator which is not a big problem overall but ıt might be for some people. We had a good time there and if we will go to Istanbul again we'll be seriously considering basileus again.

Our 8 days in Istanbul were made memorable by the help & daily suggestions of the best places to visit, to eat etc by the front desk of the hotel, Faruk & Ahmet. There kindness to us was exemplary, nothing was to much trouble. Our room was superb, clean with everything you need to feel comfortable and safe. The hotel is within a 10min walk to transport and the Hagia Sophia Mosque. Visiting with my 10yr old daughter it was the perfect hotel for us. Will definitely stay here when we visit next time.
