“Sweet, sweet, sweet, like turkish delight!”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

It was my first time in hotel "Portus" with my family and everything was perfect! The place is absolutely clean and It feels like you're home!!!
The location is perfect and it saves a lot of money for transport. Also there is a parking place really close to the hotel with fair price so you can walk (definitely it's better). The staff is really friendly and helpful, you can ask them to recommend nice places, restaurants, coffee's.
"Portus" is sweet like turkish delight and it's a place that we will visit again :)

Portus House has at least few excellent qualities. This cosy and clean hotel has the best location (close to galata tower-bridge, istiklal street, tram or cruise stop) in a quiet area. The staff are friendly, super helpful, and speak English and German. Simple breakfast is served in a homely atmosphere and a little Turkish delight welcomes you in your room . Definitely a great place to stay,while in Istanbul.

Room Tip: Rooms with shared bathroom are quieter.

I stayed in Portus several times and different kind of rooms, and i absolutely suggest this place. Really comfortable and clean rooms, excellent location(close to galata tower-bridge, istiklal street, tram or cruise stop. with tram, you can reach other historical places in istanbul or metro line), extremely helpful staff. you should experience staying in Portus and than you will see what i am talking about:)

Room Tip: I stayed in different rooms but "ensuit double room" is the best one:)

Portus is definately the most wonderful and cosy place I have ever been while my traveling. Ever since we've discovered this place we keep on returning to Portus feeling just like at home. It's absolutely the best value for money. Always perfectly clean, really homy and cosy decorated rooms, quiet, nicely served delicious breakfast and always amazing friendly and helpful staff. Their level of service never goes down!!! Their location is also perfect, with walking distance major Istanbul highligts are located. If you want to spend unforgetable holiday inIstanbul this is the place to be!!!

My wife and I have started and ended our cruise in Mediterrana with a stay in Istanbul, and we've chosen Portus Hotel mainly due to the vicinity of cruise terminal and affordable prices.
Besides a perfect location (quiet streets at 100 m from Galata Bridge), comfortable and very clean rooms, and walking distances to the main Istanbul attractions, what has impressed us the most were the kindness and good-will of the staff, to say nothing of their sense of humour!
For sure we'll come back!

Easily the best place to stay in Istanbul. Just across the bridge from Sultanahmet and a short walk to Taksim, Portus is right in te middle of Galata, which is packed with excellent cafes and restaurants. The staff are fabulous and the rooms are cute and really comfortable. Could not recommend it more!

We arrived to Portus House by car and spent two days there. We were greeted by an extremely friendly receptionist with great knowledge about Istanbul and other places in Turkey who helped us find the best places to go. The hotel was very clean, the rooms are good and the people very friendly. I very much recommend staying here!
