“I really enjoyed my stay at Portus House! Absolutely friendly and welcoming staff, very clean (both rooms, bathroom/shower, kitchen), nice ambience, good breakfast, and a great starting point for getting around in Istanbul. Would come back any time!”

ıt was an excellent accommodation. Portus has perfect location and it very closed to Taksim, you can go by walk easily. It is also closed to public transportation station and ferry port. Our room war very comfortable and had cosy atmosphere. rooms and all things were really clean. In addition, their breakfast was fresh, filling and delicious.

Portus House has a great location. It is very closed to both old city and Taksim Squere. Although we stayed only one night, we could visit both part of the city. Our room was very clean and good prepared for us. Staff were very kind and well-informed. In addition to delicious fresh breakfast, hot beverages were free and unlimited for all day. Next time we absolutely choose this hotel to stay.

Portus House is located at the heart of İstanbul.. It's very easy to reach all parts of the city from Portus House ( Taksim, Beyoglu, Eminonu, Sirkeci, Cihangir, Bebek, Ortaköy...).. Although I live in İstanbul ( 50 km from Portus House) sometimes me and my friends stay at Portus house just to feel the city :)
Its one of the best location in İstanbul to stay. The owners of the hotel are very nice and friendly. I like the breakfast served and what is more, everything is so clean ...
Thanks to Portus House staff..

I just came back home from my first trip to Istanbul and a stay at this hotel. I must say that this hotel made my trip to Istanbul even better than I expected it to be. The hotel is situated in a great part of Istanbul near the Galata bridge, and the staff are very friendly and always helpful in explaining me how to find my way around in the city. It can easily be reached by public transport and it's close to the shopping areas. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anybody who's going to Istanbul. Keep up the good work, Portus!

We were a group of five who stayed here from 27th Dec to 1st Jan. We have only positive things to say about Portus House! The location is great, about 3 min walk from the Galata Bridge and a metro stop, close to the Taksim area and the main pedestrian shopping area. If you want, you could walk across the bridge to the old town and the main attractions like the hagia sophia and the topkapi palace in about half an hour, or an easy 4 stops on the tram.

The host, Cigdem, and all the other staff were friendly and helpful, offering suggestions about the best and easiest way to get around and see the sights. They were also more than happy to help us make reservations and enquiries. We were there for New Year's Eve and they helped us find somewhere to go for dinner. There is also a fantastic hammam (traditional Turkish baths) down the street which we highly recommend - the staff at the desk called and made a reservation for us.

There were some vegetarians and vegans in our group and they went out of their way to get different food for their breakfasts (breakfast was great, by the way) and did everything they could to make our stay a pleasant one.

We would come back in a heartbeat!
