Most recent review:

What I liked:

The service offered by their people, I would happily call them “Portus House Ambassadors”, both exceeds your expectations and is far better than one can expect even in an average five starts property.

Central location – easy to walk towards most important landmarks, the hotel is surrounded by many good restaurants and bars.

Healthy breakfast available the whole day, one of the smoothest and quietest AC I’ve seen in a hotel during this year’s travels and (a little sporadic) free WiFi make one’s stay comfortable enough to make you want to return.

What the hotel could do better:

They could introduce pillow menu and install in-room fridges

Hotel Description

Urban hotels love to stretch the meaning of “centrally located” and “convenient,” but in the case of Portus House, both terms are understatements. Istanbul’s Beyoglu district is a microcosm of the sprawling city, where the mingling of cultures, religions, and entire empires can be experienced simply by walking the streets. And Portus House is situated right in the heart of it all, a quick walk from the Galata Bridge and Taksim Square. Unpretentious and pared down, with an artistic flair all its own, Portus House feels woven into the fabric of the neighborhood.

It doesn’t look like much from the outside, but in this case, fortune favors the bold. Make no mistake: this hotel is an affordable, charming alternative to larger design hotels and chains. If your tastes run to marble and gold, you’d probably be better served elsewhere. But Portus House has a great deal to recommend it, beginning with ten cheery guest rooms. The style is grounded in exposed brick (painted white) and various shades of turquoise and blue. This surprisingly nautical palette makes sense when you consider that the sea is only a block away.

There’s no shortage of culinary options just outside the front door, but Portus House does have a communal kitchen for guests looking to prepare their own meals. Furnished with bistro tables, this appealing little space also functions as a sort of lounge for anyone craving a bit of social interaction. What Portus House lacks in opulence, it more than makes up for in warmth, making it the ideal home base for a spirited exploration of Istanbul.
