Like so many others, we chose Millennium Suites because of the universally positive reviews. We were not disappointed.
Alper was, throughout, a gracious host/manager/owner, from prompt, crisp pre-arrival e-mail communications through excellent tour, meal, and shopping advice, to his arranging a final tour to our specifications on the day of our departure, wending through interesting parts of Istanbul, including a non-touristy, very upscale shopping mall at our request, and ending at the airport. Definitely better than a standard cab ride.
Alper’s chef and his assistant manager were equally helpful, warm, and kind. But the best part…and you probably won’t be able to avail yourselves of this(!)…was the chance to meet Alper’s totally adorable 2 ½ year-old son, hanging out with his dad for the day, who practiced his nursery school English on us (“What-is-your-name?”).
We agree with the many positive comments others have written, and would only add that our fourth floor room faced the busy street, but it was nearly as quiet as a country inn. For our second night, Alper moved us to a second floor rear room with its own lovely courtyard.
Without question, Millennium Suites is a home away from home, in a spectacular location.
