Unpredictable bathroom/shower quality and cleanliness
Reviewed 9 November, 2019
Was here on two different nights, spaced by a week or so. Overall, hotel location is ok, near multiple malls, but far from historic area, so a long ride depending on crazy Manaus traffic conditions. Hotel lobby somewhat small,for volume of traffic, hard to get a place to sit sometime. Rooms spacious, generally clean and comfortable bed/mattress. Staff generally friendly, but some look overworked and overwhelmed, again given the umber of people that checkin/checkout constantly. One of the checkout staff was extremely helpful, facilitating uber pickup despite the language differences. Bar/breakfast area has nice seating and friendly service. Breakfast quality was good.
What really bothered me was the bathroom/shower maintenace/cleanliness during the second stay. Wall tiles along shower edge/floor cracked with gaping hole and sign of mold. General caulk and grout on entire bathroom floor blackened, grimy and dirty, as if they haven't been cleaned, or if cleaned stains simply won't remove. I tried as hard I could not walking bare feet. Also, hotel couldn't provide early check-in (although I was only at hotel for 8 hours to catch a mid-night international flight)
My first stay (first room) bathroom/shower was more presentable, cleanliness wise, but the very dark grouts/caulk even there give a persistent concern if it could be moldy. But I was staying only for a few hours (having checked in 3 AM in the morning), so I would have given 3 stars based on that single experience.
Both rooms were pre-booked, pre-paid, otherwise I would have probably opted to stay somewhere else on my second stay, based on the feedback of another colleague/traveller (in our cruise party) who had a similar experience with her room at this hotel
Clearly this hotel has potential, given the more affordable rates and a central location (even if not close to historic downtown area). But they need to invest in updating/upgrading all bathrooms/showers.
Nightlife, city center, City Lights - what more do you want!?!

Great location to stay while in Manaus. Reception staff were good - knowledgeable and helpful. Restaurant staff were super, and the breakfast buffet was more than you'll need. Bed was comfortable, room was large. View from the top floor swimming pool was breathtaking, and the RATES were good! I know it's a little out of the way for the typical U.S. traveler, but if you're up for a nice 4-5 day getaway, Manaus can be your place!

Breakfast was good. Wonderful fruit. Unusual crepe from manioc flour. Filled with cheese but could get ham.
I also had dinner. A good white fish with rise, cheese and bananas. Rise was new to my taste but interesting.

5 days in Manaus, stayed at the Hotel Millennium. The rooms were good and the bed was excellent. Located next to small shopping mall with a larger one in walking distance, some bars also nearby. Short taxi trip for downtown, including the Theatre and Port for the river trips. Overall great hotel very near Ibis hotel which maybe worth a look for a budget hotel.
The hotel offers great views over Manaus

We stayed here for three nights before going on a cruise on the Amazon.
We stayed on the 8th floor which gave great views over the town to the river. We were high enough to not be bothered by traffic noise which other reviewers have complained about.
We were on a corner of the building which gave us a really big room. We had a large bed which was very comfortable. There was a small kitchenette area with a fridge.
The en-suite bathroom was also a good size.
The room looked a little tired but it didn't matter.
Breakfasts were very good with plenty of choice but the dinners were the highlight. Service was usually fairly slow but we were in a large group of 20 people but the food was excellent as was our waiter.
On the top floor of the hotel on the 18th floor is a small swimming pool with fantastic views of the city. When we were there it was very hot so it was lovely to cool off in the water and exercise after the long flight getting there.
The hotel is situated in a busy part of town attached to a shopping mall. Across the road is a small river which is very dirty but held some interesting wildlife. There were a couple of Alligators and lots of birds. The other side of the river was a small park but it didn't feel particularly safe in daylight. We definitely wouldn't go in there at night.
If we're back in Manaus sometime we would probably stay here again.
