Located just across Galata Bridge it is an outstanding place for everyone wanting to escape from the over-priced and tourist-oriented Sultanahmet. Portus House can be reached very conveniently by tram, as well as by bus or ferry. As mentioned in previous reviews, there is a supermarket just across the street, so you can keep your budget tight easily. We reserved a room for two, but instead got a three-bedded one, which was great, since we had more than enough place to keep our stuff on. However, the walls certainly need re-painting (blood spots from squeezed mosquitoes are not among the most pleasant of views) and the breakfasts could have been more ample (note that this is my opinion, as my better half kept saying that they were OK). Overall — highly recommended!
