“Very very friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013 via mobile

We stayed at this hotel for 8 nights and loved every minute of it. It felt like staying with family rather than at a hotel. Everyone could not be more welcoming and accommodating. They even arranged a complementary 4 hour bosphorus cruise for us and a taxi ride to airport which had not been a part of booking. We had some great chats and laughs with the staff who were all really really friendly. Everything was nearby and street was really lively. We had a lot of meals delivered to our room from restaurant across the street and everything was delicious and very cheap. We would love to go back soon. Dr I Babar

This place is as cute as it gets....and the location is walking distance to everything you could ask for. There are plenty of restaurants right outside the door. The beds are extremely comfortable and the room size was great. They have thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable as it could be...right down to a free minibar. The internet througout the hotel was excellent. Breakfast had a good selection as well as eggs made to order. Now for the staff....we could not have asked for a nicer group of folks. Alper and Taner at the front desk were exceptional and went out of their way to make sure all your needs were met. One thing to share....make sure to ask about major purchases...like rugs. We were the victims of a carpet scam which could have easily been avoided had we asked Alper or Taner. Once we told them what was going on, one of the Managing Parters, Alper, organized the entire staff to provide assistance...right down to accompanying us to the Police Station to translate our story. We cannot thank them enough.. You never really realize the importance of a knowledgeable hotel staff, especially in a foreign country, until you need them. It sure makes thing less stressful when without hesitation, someone is there to help and give reassurance. We will never forget!

Room Tip: Make sure to ask the front desk about any major purchases...BEFORE...you make them. They will help...

We recently spent 4 nights at the Millennium Suites while touring Istanbul and the found the hotel to be spotlessly clean with spacious rooms and a knowledgeable and extremely helpful staff. It is located within a short walk of the major sights in the old section with numerous restaurants nearby. This is a boutique hotel (only 7 rooms), but charming and accommodating and we would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: I would presume all rooms are similar in size and amenities. However, there is no elevator so consi...

My wife and I were travelling for the first time with our 12 week old baby. We thought we were biting off more than we could chew choosing Istanbul first up but the staff at Millennium Suites from the moment we arrived alleviated any concerns. We knew it was going to be a slower trip than usual so we booked in for 8 nights. The rooms were spacious and clean, breakfast (fresh cheesy bread) was great and knowledge of the local area was a big help. The hotel is located in the perfect spot next to all the major sights. To top it off the hotel only has seven rooms which gives the hotel a very homely touch. It was great to end the day with a wine sharing experiences with both the great staff and the other hotel guests. Suites. By the way if you have a baby it is definately the place to stay, they all love kids and will bend over backwards to help you. Thanks again to all the staff at Millennium we will be back!!!

My husband and I stayed here for four nights. The staff welcomed you as soon as you arrived- offered all sorts of help and advice to make your visit the best experience. It is a small and atmospheric hotel full of character. The rooms are quiet and well furnished. All the staff from reception to waitors etcv are excellent.
Food great at breakfast and meakls could be obtained from the sister restaurant which were of excellent value admirably aranged by Ugur snd staff.
We will definitely go back when next in IIstanbul.

Boutique hotel in the perfect location in the Heart of old town, steps from the Blue Mosque.
Quaint atmosphere, staff couldn't be more helpful, engaging, Nice!
Awesome breakfast spread. Bathroom big enough, with tub, nice amenities.
Only potential drawback is one central ac, heating, so what's good for one is good for all.

We were not sure what to expect when we arrived at the hotel. It was great! The staff were friendly and helpful. Staff carried luggage to our first floor room, which was a small suite. Suite met all our needs and was clean and comfortable and quiet. WiFi included. While waiting to check in, Taner made reservations at Turkish bath and message. It was a 10 minute walk and in front of the Blue Mosque. It was a great experience, masseuse took out all the aches and pains from our 10 days of visit the Greek ruins. He also made reservations to see the Whirling Dervish show. Again, only a 10 minute walk to the tram station, plus two stops. A wonderful exhibition.
Taner had also arrangements for a guide for two days. Ms Gunnur came the same day we checked, to review our expectations and discussed her suggestions. She walked us to the baths, showed us how to take the tram, gave us her extra tram card and how to add money to the card. By using the tram card it only cost us 2 TL per trip instead of 3 TL/trip.
The next morning we had eggs anyway we wanted, plus all sorts of Turkish delights. Our guide showed on time and off we went. The hotel was within 10-15 minutes walking of 8 of the top 10 sites in Istanbul. The street the hotel is located in is really in the "old town". We were within 5 minutes (walking) of restaurants and bars.
Taner arranged transportation to the airport with a private van service. Driver was courteous and drove sanely (no crazy Turkish taxi drivers).
Millennium Suites exceeded our expectations. We would return to this hotel.

Room Tip: Our room was quiet even though it faced to main street. I do not know if there is a bad room in the...
