Millennium Hotels and Resorts has debuted in Turkey with the launch of the five-star, 127-room Millennium Istanbul Golden Horn Hotel. 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.
The property is located in the city’s historical centre, within the garden of The Palace of Blachernae and opposite the Ayazma and the Church St. Mary of Blachaernae. Nearby sites include the Kariye (Khora) Mosque and Museum and the Balat neighborhood, with its Ottoman houses protected by UNESCO, with the iconic Pierre Loti Hill a five-minute drive away and the city’s historic Holy Churches, Synagogues and Mosques within walking distance.
Featuring 127 rooms and suites, Millennium Istanbul Golden Horn Hotel will also be home to a fitness centre, spa and Turkish hammam and business centre, including a 404-sqm ballroom and meeting rooms.
For all-day dining, Keros offers world cuisine and Turkish specialties including an extensive breakfast buffet. Those looking for a 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 the Byzantium period.
The hotel lies just a few steps from the nearest Metrobus station and Ayvansaray Pier and 15 km away from Atatürk International Airport.
