Our stay here was truly lovely. The reception staff were well versed, all spoke English, and were great with recommendations for travel within Turkey, places to eat in Istanbul, what to see and how to get around. While much of the furnishings may be from IKEA, the hotel was clean, offered a library of books, both travel, and novels, simple... More

We booked a double room with shared bath for two nights, room was pretty clean but for some reason there were so many mosquitos at night (didn't even open the window) and we couldn't sleep well at all. The hotel did let us leave our lugguages after we checked out, since our flight was late in the evening, and when... More

Dear NickyLin, Please accept my sincere apologies for the inconvenience you experienced and thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately, we were not able to find out how mosquitoes found their way into your room despite the mosquito net at the window, however, we have completely cleared the room after your departure, so all is well. In addition, certainly our guests... More

And just down the street are a number of trendy restaurants, cafes and shops. There is also a tram station 3... More

This was just a perfect long weekend stay at the Portus house. It started with having a transfer from and to the airport organized well in advance to getting some insights information about the "must sees" to secret, very local places that one should not miss out on. Any requests, from printing out the boarding pass to delivering any other... More

Me and my family stayed at Portus in August, and we felt like home! Rooms are cute and clean, breakfast is delicious... and the members of the staff are always ready to help with suggestions about good restaurants, cool cafés and nice spots. I would recommend it for sure!
