I booked this hotel for a colleague, three graduate students, and me. Our rooms were quiet, pleasantly furnished, spectacularly clean, and had reliable wi-fi access. Yusef, Eko, Omar and Muharrem were always friendly and helpful with advice on any subject. They offered maps, transportation methods and routes. They knew excellent places to eat and where to buy the best Turkish Delight. Breakfast was a delicious buffet that included Western and Turkish breakfast staples and omelets made to order. Evening chats with the hotel staff after long work days or days of exploring Istanbul's many attractions were pleasant and illuminating. All of us will happily return to the Basileus on our next visit to Istanbul.
