On our first trip to Istanbul we stayed at Portus and were really pleasantly surprised by the place. Approaching the location at night was a bit difficult as it's tucked away on a side-street in a non-touristy area, but like other great little finds I've experienced, the interior was in great contrast to the exterior. Once we climbed the steep stairs to the lobby we were surprised at how orderly, clean and nicely decorated the place was. The rooms are really comfortable and well taken care of and the breakfast was served in a spotless kitchen with free wireless and all the mod cons. We especially enjoyed the location as it's just a short walk to the ferries, seafood eateries and Gallata bridge and the trams. The price is right too! Nice little find!!
