Our port in Istanbul was a welcoming refuge from the bustle on the streets. We were supported by staff on our travel plans, finding local tours and returned there to say hello again. Great spot to access both the old and the new. Cosy and personal.

Portus House right in the middle of Istanbul. Everything in Istanbul is within 10 mins walk, and 1 minute to the tram to take you anywhere else. Very helpful and friendly staff who spent time at the beginning talking you through directions and opening times of all the attractions. Rooms spacious, new and very clean. Beds were very comfortable. Great... More

I stayed in this hotel with a group of students on a study trip. The location is really central. A few minutes walk to galata bridge and close to nice restaurants/bars. The staff is really kind and helpful, the rooms pretty and clean.

This was my first time in Istanbul, and staying at Portus couldn't have been a more perfect choice. The staff was extremely professional and friendly, and even patient enough to help with offering directions, suggestions, and turkish lessons. The environment itself was warm. comfortable, clean, and charmingly designed. Soft beds, cute rooms, cozy atmosphere, and as always in Turkey, plenty... More

In five person we occupied one whole floor, that gave us a more "private" environment, because we shared the shower and the WC only amongst our group. The single beds, although quite small, have good mattresses. The street is quiet, no problem there. The walls... More
