Portus House
Ranked #15 of 1,260 Specialty Lodging in Istanbul
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 17, 2011

Brand new, smack clean, very friendly staff, comfortable beds with very good mattresses. The Family room for 5 was not just a room but an entire closed corridor with two separate rooms, a separate shower and a separate toilet. We were four persons and could not ask for more. The locations are in walking distance to all major sites and breakfasting every day at a different place in the area prepared us just well for the rest of the day. Definitely a no brainer

The hotel is a small house, beautifully built, the staff is very warm and friendly.

This is beautiful place with top notch service and accommodations. It is well worth staying here. The location is excellent central. Close to restaurants, bars, shopping and nightlife. Everything is in walking distance. The staff was extremely helpful in terms of making recommendations about places to eat, getting to the beach and responding to general questions about the area.

The accommodations and service is excellent and the location is premium. I have to rate this place as one of the best places I have ever stayed in.

Room Tip: well worth the price for what you get

The hotel is very nicely situated. It's close to Galata Tower, the Blue Mosque, a ferry terminal and many other interesting things. There are many great restaurants nearby. The people in the hotel are extremely friendly and the place is very clean.
