The service was great like in a real hotel and half the price in fact there was no difference from a hotel. The staff is very polite and will answer any question about the city. Rooms are cozy and bathroom/toilet really clean. There is free wi-fi and the breakfast was awesome. The location is in the hip area of Karakoy... More

We spend 3 days in Portus House and we loved it. The Hotel is located in the upcoming and hip area in Istanbul called Karakoy. Even if most of hotels, in the same location is over then hundred euros, we paid too less for the Portus House. But also we get the very well clean (thanks a lot to Julide),... More

Portus House is a real gem. We had the best welcome there that I can think of: very personal! The decor is beautiful and I love the coziness of the hotel near a real trendy area but far enough way to not be directly in the chaos. We opted for the room with our own bathroom and it was perfect.... More

Stylish accommodation in karakoy, the centre of town, not far from galata tower and the karakoy seabus/ferry. A lovely homely feel with the most friendly and helpful staff. We had a family suite, two rooms, shower and toilet, off our own private corridor. Spotlessly clean and remarkably good value.

Staying in Karakoy

Neighbourhood Profile
Karakoy
Sitting pretty with an age-old air about it, Karakoy is situated on the European side of the Bosphorus at the mouth of the Golden Horn. Perhaps the city’s most historically significant area, it’s currently one of the most happening parts of town as well. Here street vendors and alfresco fish restaurants line the banks of the Horn where the views of major attractions across the water rival Karakoy’s own key attractions, such as the iconic 14th century Galata Tower and the Museum of Modern Art. A major hub for local and international waterborne traffic, Istanbul’s commercial and maritime heritage remains as relevant and evident as ever in Karakoy. Commuter ferries mingle with luxury cruise liners at its busy port, ensuring a continuously cosmopolitan flow of people..
