The Portus House was the perfect place for our short trip to Istanbul. The rooms were very comfortable, lovely furnished and very clean. Breakfast was turkish style and super delicious. The area around the hotel is dominated by many bars and cafés, but this won't disturb you during the night. You can easily experience Istanbul by foot or take the public transport. The staff was very welcoming, friendly and helpful and it felt like coming home every time we climbed up the stairs to the reception.

The staff were amazing , helping us even with luggage (we stayed on the top floor and had no elevator) . The room is great , spacious, very comfortable bed and a good bathroom . The location , although near the Galata Bridge, left us a little scared at night, because it was very dark . But nothing that would compromise our stay. We used the shuttle service to both airports in Istanbul and all went well . Thank you, Portus House Team!

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.
