Portus house feels like a cosy little place. They have some rooms that are hostel-like (with shared bathroom etc), however we stayed in the normal room w attached bathroom and our stay was perfect. Room was clean and cosy. They have a little pantry area where they serve breakfast and snacks all day and where you can just hang out.

The hotel is located very centrally. We walked Everyday to the other side of the bridge (Sultan Ahmet area + spice markets) and it's a 20 minutes leisurely walk. The view of the Bosphorus is breathtaking so walking there is highly recommended.

The hotel is also close to other 'fun areas' like the Galata Tower and Taksim.

There's a bunch off really hip and cool restaurants and cafe on the same lane as the Portus House so finding food is not an issue.

The Staff at the Portus house were friendly and helpful. We would like to thank Lutfi for being so accommodating to our needs to for being extremely helpful.

We'd highly recommend Portus House and would definitely come back and they here again.

Superb location with very reasonable prices and excellent, attentive staff. It is a small hotel with high standards, very nicely decorated rooms and immaculately clean. As it has steep stairs and no elevator, like many hotels in Amsterdam, if you have much luggage request a room on the first or second floors. Some rooms have private bathrooms and in some you have to share the bathroom & shower with one other room on the same floor. I chose that option and never had to wait in line. Every morning you are treated to freshly brewed coffee or tea, cornflakes and tasty sandwiches. There is a market acrosss the street and you are welcome to buy eggs, cheese etc.. and make your own breakfast or other meal of the day. An excellent soup vendor, with over a dozen fresh and delicious soups is less than 50 feet away and is open 24/7. All the staff were friendly, cared to make you feel welcome and very efficient. Mr. Lütfi is a delight to meet and made sure my three day stay with my 10 year old son was pleasant. Great area and very close to public transportation and ferries. A wide variety of popular restaurants and hipster clubs in the area and the Modern Art Museum is less that 15 minutes by foot. Highly recommended small hotel that is sure to please and be easy on your wallet. A great find!

Room Tip: No elevator, so choose 1st or 2nd floor if you have much to carry.

We felt at our home and the housekeeping lady cleaned our rooms everyday. She was always smiling and seems to love her work. The hotel is located very central and easy to reach all sightseeings and public transport. Around the hotel you will find the local restaurants and bars. Friday and Saturday, get ready for street parties till early mornings. The manager is always available even on whatsapp :)) so don't hesitate to contact to him. He is very professional and really knows how to save your time. Grab your free tea&coffee from the 24hours open kitchen and ask for the best advice. When we back to hotel every night, we felt at our home.

Thanks for all, we will be back soon:-)

When we arrived at Portus House Istanbul there was no one there to check us in. They had forgot about our reservation. But fortunately they let us stay at a really nice nearby hotel. That was a good way to fix things. The next day we could check in to our room at Portus House, it was a clean, basic, comfortable room. The shared shower on the hallway was also nice and clean. The breakfast wasn't too great. Just an old sandwich that we tried to make tastier by toasting it... still wasn't great. But considering the good price, the perfect location, the cleanliness and the helpfull staff I'm still really happy that we stayed here.
