Individual guest reviews

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    The location was excellent, full value for money. enjoyed my stay

    Breakfast was horrible

  • Single
    7.8

    Price! 59€ (Flash Deal) Rooms are good, but the view terrible (2nd floor, view to staircase). Location very good, if you want sightseeing.

    Where to start... The staff is absolutely incompetent. They all should to a training how to run a hotel and handle guests. 1.) I kindly asked to get a room with better view, with my booking and again in the hotel. They said its booked out, which was a lie. 2.) Breakfast is for Non-Turkish people terrible. Fresh O-juice not included, you have to pay. One morning the waiter pushed me several times to leave the room, because breakfast time is over (10:30 - actually it was 5 minutes before that) - unbelievable. As soon as I got up, Turkish guests have been moved to my table. 3.)They try often to squeeze some more Liras out of you. Parking should be paid (Denied, because Booked.net said its free), they try to fool you with the exchange rate... much more to complain here, when it comes to the staff!

    The hotel has excelent location. From our room we had a beautiful view :from the Golden Horn to the Hagia Sofia. Good size room and bathroom, the breakfast generaly was ok, From the breakfast terrace the panorama is fantastic. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

    From Monday to Wednesday the variety of the breakfast was a little bit poorer than on the other days.

  • Family with children

    The staff were helpful almost to a fault. The masseur in the Turkish bath was excellent as was the entire bath experience.

    The quality of their cots is below the standard set by the rest of the hotel experience.

    Basiliaca has great rooms on the fourth and fifth floor with views to the city skyline and the Blue Mosque and Aya Sofia. Very pleasant. The room is clean and comfortable.

    Breakfast could be better; same things were served for many days. Very limited fruit options.

  • Single

    Convenient, 3 mins walking distance to places of interest. New, big room and clean. Excellent bathroom with jacuzzi and lot's of amenities.

    No boiling jar/complimentary of bottle mineral water. Unfriendly front desk as he don't understand English.

  • Group of friends

    The shower hose was broken in our room (it was impossible to take a shower) of which we notified the hotel staff. Two days later with nothing done to rectifying the situation, they finally gave us a different room. The staff did not handle the situation well.

  • Older travelers

    I enjoyed sightseeing and absorbing all of Istanbul's history, then going back to the warmth of the hotel and relaxing. The breakfast truthfully boasts 75 varieties of sumptuous breakfast and brunch options. The location was perfect.

    Location. Perfect location right near the Aya Sofia.

    Staff were so tip hungry, even when they have not done anything! Doorman took tip from taxi driver, which was added to our taxi fair. It's a shame - this is a great hotel, but their doorman lets them down.
