Hotels & Resorts
Millennium opens in Istanbul

The award-winning Millennium Hotels and Resorts celebrates its first opening in Turkey with the launch of the five-star, 127-key Millennium Istanbul Golden Horn Hotel this month.

Named after the nearby ‘Haliç’ or primary inlet of the famous Bosphorus, guests will have a front row seat to Istanbul’s world famous urban waterway.

Located in the heart of the city’s historical centre, within the garden of The Palace of Blachernae and

opposite the Ayazma and the Church St Mary of Blachaernae, the hotel is within easy reach of Istanbul’s most exciting places of interest. These include the Kariye (Khora) Mosque and Museum and the characteristic neighborhood of Balat, with its colorful century-old Ottoman houses protected by Uneco, with the iconic Pierre Loti Hill only a five minute drive away and the city’s historic Holy churches, synagogues and mosques within walking distance.

Accommodating 127 chicly designed rooms and suites, Millennium Istanbul Golden Horn Hotel will boast a state of the art fitness centre, luxury spa and Turkish hammam and extensive business centre, including a 404-sqm ballroom and meeting rooms.

For all-day dining, Keros offers a wide range of innovative world cuisine and Turkish specialties including an extensive breakfast buffet. Those looking for a superior steakhouse coupled with magnificent views across the Golden Horn can visit Tekfur for lunch or dinner, whilst the Kathisma Private Dining Room invites diners to experience an array of famous special plates, with dishes designed to take guests back to the Byzantium period.

Perfectly placed for those travelling around the city, the hotel lies just a few steps from the nearest Metrobus station and Ayvansaray Pier, 3 km away from Haliç Congress Centre, 10 minutes walking distance to Old City and just 15 km away from Atatürk International Airport.

Orhan Yeserenyuva, general manager of Millennium Istanbul Golden Horn Hotel, said: “Istanbul

remains one of the world’s leading tourist destinations, attracting more than 10 million travellers last year alone, so we are delighted to bring the first Millennium Hotels’ and Resorts’ hotel to this vibrant city. While being surrounded by historical walls of Byzantine Empire, Ayazma and the Church St. Mary of Blachaernae, we offer an exciting new choice for travellers and look forward to delivering unique standards of Millennium hospitality in the city.”
