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.

Please note: Portus House contains some shared hostel-style rooms; only the fully private hotel-style rooms are available on Tablet.
