“Best location and service/advice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

The best location in old town and the most helpful and friendly staff of our entire 3 week trip in Turkey. Breakfast options were outstanding. It truly felt like home. We spent 5 nights at the beginning of our trip at Millennium. Bathroom is small but well equipped with bath/shower combo. Room is adequate in size and very clean with comfortable bed. Be aware of stairs and no elevator for older folks. Staff gives excellent advice. This hotel is excellent value for the price and perfect for site seeing, within walking distance to Blue Mosque, Topkapi, and museums. Neighborhood is safe at night and plenty of restaurants to eat at or just sit and enjoy people watching.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back are quieter. If stairs are an issue request first or second floor. They are very a...

Fantastic hotel in the centre of everything, run by the most welcoming people you will meet in Turkey. Travelled in October with young children and took two rooms adjoined by a small corridor. Will not think twice about re-booking when next in Istanbul

We stayed three nights at this wonderful little hotel (seven rooms). The personnel helped us to plan our short visit and their advice proved to be most helpful for us. The rooms are clean and large. The minibar, the Wifi (wich also works) and the air conditioning is included. My advice is to tell the staff what you want to see and do. Their advice are reliable and by using service of their partners they make the reservations for you and the service providers pick you up at the hotel. You can surely find cheaper hotels but this place is worth every cent, especially if you are short on time. If you are interested in buying a hand made carpet or just to learn about how hand made carpets are made, my advice is to tell the hotel staff about that too.

Room Tip: We had the room 101 on the ground floor. No view but easy to get in and out. No noise from the stree...

If you want to be in the old town, this is it!!! The hotel sits perfectly situated along the main strip in Sultanhamet, which is where you want to be as a tourist. The Blue and Sophia Mosques, theTokapi Palace & museums are all under 5 minutes away by foot and this is also where the hop on tour buses begin. The rooms here are very charming, romantic, perfect for couples and definitely larger than average for the neighborhood, but you are paying for it.
The staff and service are exceptional, the breakfast was by European standards okay, but sitting out on the terrace every morning watching the old town come to life was worthwhile, and of course the fabulous attention to service detail. If you are budget sensitive, there are better options in far lesser locations, but if you are seeking a great bed and breakfast experience and want all your tourist destinations at your fingertips, this is it.
Also the street is loaded with excellent restaurants, late night drinking and shisha. Loads of fun, yet quiet just where the hotel is located. Most of the rooftop restaurants in the immediate vicinity are overpriced and underwhelming, but pick the right ones anytime of day and its worth the price of admission just for the amazing views, especially at sunset.

We stayed in IST for 4 nights and had picked Millennium suites from Trip Advisor. It was a good choice. The most amazing part was that the moment we got in the hotel, we felt at home. Alper(both Alpers!) and Tanner have such personalities that they make you feel comfortable and are very responsive. They sit in the lobby and whenever a guest is around, they chat informally about anything which you can imagine. The rooms are very clean, elegantly furnished and minibar is free. The hotel is small but is hidden gem in IST with walking distance from Aya Sofia, Topkapi, Blue Mosque etc. Highly recommended.

The hotel itself is older but very nice. The rooms are large and comfortable. The tub in room 401 is very high off the ground and challenging to get into, but it works well and is clean.There are a few places where they need some paint or wall paper repair, but over all it is well kept. There is no elevator, but the staff is very willing to help you with your bags. The fridge is kept stocked with free beverages.
The breakfast buffet they have every morning is well stocked. It has several bread items, fruits, some cheese, some meat, and many more local items that I'm not sure what they were. There was a cookie my wife loved. They would also custom cook eggs for you and they made fresh squeezed orange juice.
The staff is the best asset of the hotel. We had trouble getting our bags from the airline and had difficultly finding where they were due to our lack of Turkish skills. Alper, the manager, got on the phone and was able to track them down. His associate, Taner, also went out of his way with our requests for reservations and directions. At the end of my week long stay, there were no unexpected financial surprises. Everything was as quoted.
If you're looking for Four Seasons plushness, look elsewhere. If you are looking for a small, boutique place which has large rooms, is clean and has the most personal service, in a great location, this is the place for you!

Room Tip: Room 401 is a large room with a king bed, but the tub is not for those with mobility issues.

Millennium Suites, a boutique hotel in old town Istanbul is outstanding. The room was very large and luxurious. The staff were extremely helpful and bent over backwards to be of assistance. Breakfast was a feast made for a Sultan. I would recommend this hotel to friends traveling as either a couple or solo. The staff went out of their way to make sure I had what I needed as far as recommendations on what to see, where to eat and how to get there. They even took time to help me learn a few words in Turkish.

On this trip I was alone, but next time I will bring my husband.

Room Tip: My room faced the street and I was on the second floor of a multiple story hotel. The street activit...
