We stayed over Easter in Istanbul in the Portus House. Rooms are well decorated and very clean. Breakfast its surprisingly good, Service is excellent. The guys booked restaurants for us (good recommendations) and gave us hints on where and how to go. We would stay at Portus House again!

I stayed here for one night between flights. The directions to the hotel from their website worked perfectly, and there is easy access to the T1 tram and Galata Bridge. The neighborhood is great, and still a quick tram ride or 25 minute walk to the major tourist sites. I had a room with shared bathroom. The bathroom was only...

I spent a few days at Portus House in December with a few friends while we explored Istanbul and I was very happy with our decision to stay at Portus House.

The service was great like in a real hotel and half the price in fact there was no difference from a hotel. The staff is very polite and will answer any question about the city. Rooms are cozy and bathroom/toilet really clean. There is free wi-fi and the breakfast was awesome. The location is in the hip area of Karakoy...

Portus House is a real gem. We had the best welcome there that I can think of: very personal! The decor is beautiful and I love the coziness of the hotel near a real trendy area but far enough way to not be directly in the chaos. We opted for the room with our own bathroom and it was perfect....

Staying in Karakoy

Neighbourhood Profile
Karakoy
Sitting pretty with an age-old air about it, Karakoy is situated on the European side of the Bosphorus at the mouth of the Golden Horn. Perhaps the city’s most historically significant area, it’s currently one of the most happening parts of town as well. Here street vendors and alfresco fish restaurants line the banks of the Horn where the views of major attractions across the water rival Karakoy’s own key attractions, such as the iconic 14th century Galata Tower and the Museum of Modern Art. A major hub for local and international waterborne traffic, Istanbul’s commercial and maritime heritage remains as relevant and evident as ever in Karakoy. Commuter ferries mingle with luxury cruise liners at its busy port, ensuring a continuously cosmopolitan flow of people..
