This April, the award-winning Millennium Hotels & Resorts celebrates its first opening 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.
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 neighbourhood of Balat, with its colourful century-old Ottoman houses protected by UNESCO, 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.
Perfectly placed for those travelling around the city, the hotel lies just a few steps from the nearest Metrobus station and Ayvansaray Pier, three kilometres away from Haliç Congress Centre, ten 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 commented: “Istanbul remains one of the world’s leading tourist destinations, attracting more than ten million travellers last year alone, so we are delighted to bring the first Millennium Hotels & 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.”
