Portus House has a perfect location close to old city and modern city. There are many restuarants around so you don't need to think where to eat. The staff was excellent and very helpful. The room was clean, breakfast was sufficient!. Thanks for everything.

We had a great stay at Portus House. Although off a smaller side street it was easy to find using the directions provided, we even found it without a map! The staff were fantastic, very eager to help and with superb restaurant and sight-seeing advice. We hadn't held out too much hope for the breakfast provided but the mezze style spread was a great beginning to the day. We would HIGHLY recommend and thank Portus House.

Everything was good. Only thing I would comment room, bathroom, stairs and corridor was very narrow. and it is of course comes from nature of building itself. Since the building is located on small plot of land I accept it as normal. Also it would be better make doors with key card access.

Lovely staff, great location not far from Taksim with easy access to the old town (short walk or T1 tram). We switched to this side of town after spending our first few nights in Sultanahmet, and much preferred this location! Rooms and facilities are clean and nice.

You have such great taste to prefer this location over the old city! After all, who wants to be in Disney World all day & night? Sunny Regards from Karaköy, Your Portus Team

Excellent, helpful staff, but would suggest clearer directions on how to find the place.
