I'm so lucky to find an available room at Basileus Hotel during my visit to Istanbul.
The location is great; it very close to Sultanahmet square and tram station .
The staff ( Salim , Umar & Mohamed are extremely helpful and nice).
Excellent location, walkable to many attractions, nice breakfast . Selim and his team make you feel at home, always ready to help. Next time in Istanbul, I know where to go and will recommend to my friends.

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.

The hotel can arrange a transfer on a minibus - there is also a travel agent almost opposite who also advertises transfers. Price - from memory it was around U.K.£10.to Ataturk. stature is on the Europe side. The same as via a travel agent. There’s a timetable.
(There’s another airport on the Asian side and that ismuch further away. The guy (s) on Reception at the hotel are really helpful ... for example they said don’t buy anything in the Grand Bazaar as it is a tourist rip/off area. The little shops are outdide the Bazaar are more normal prices. The Spice Market is good value and really worth going to. Enjoy your trip. Julie
P.S. the tram/metro are great for getting around the city.
