Portus house is wondeful! Istanbul is an amazing city & Portus House is in a great location, close to major city sites, yet in a more authentic, safe and quiet area that is not crowded with tourists. The room was nice and clean and well decorated and the shared bathrooms were not a problem at all. The staff at Portus House are marvellous. They all go out of there way to ensure that you have a great stay & time in their wonderful city. The breakfast room is cute and the complimentary breakfast is the perfect way to start the day! We were able to leave our luggage there on the day we checked out until the afternoon, tea and coffee was always available and we were provided with a city map & tips on what to do and see. We felt extremely well looked after and had a lovely stay. I definitely recommend staying at Portus House.

Absolutely loved the Portus House. The location was a huge selling point: close to touristy Sultanmet and the Karakoy ferry, but in a more residential neighborhood that didn't feel touristy at all. Bonus: around the corner from the delicious chocolate baklava at Gulloglu! A bunch of great restaurants close by as well, and an easy walk up to Galata. Staff is kind and helpful--they even helped me find a nearby yoga studio! The complimentary breakfast is AMAZING, and the little breakfast room is super cute with a terrace and nice details. I visited with a friend and we stayed in a shared double. Room was clean, beds were comfortable, and we only shared the bathroom with one other room. Bathroom was clean and we never had to wait to use it. Highly, highly recommend for anyone visiting Istanbul.

Portus House is in Karakoy, in a a very hopping area, day and night. Only a few blocks from the Galata Bridge and an easy walk to Sultanahment (the Old City). Our rooms were beautiful, clean and sunny. We had 2 rooms on our own hall with our own bathroom and shower.

The real gem of this gem of a guesthouse is Ismael Gulum, who mans the desk most days. In his excellent English, this charming man will help you with anything you need, from changing a light bulb to telling you the best places to see or eat and how to get there.

Room Tip: Portus House offers an airport shuttle, but a taxi is much cheaper and easy to find at the airport.

We loved the Portus House. Got great tips on where to go in the area, easy access to Galata, Istanbul Modern, ferries to Kadakoy. They can get you access to events and places where as a nonlocal you don't even know how to ask.

You may need to fortify your breakfast elsewhere and slip to Julius Meinl for espresso.

Room Tip: No views, so go for the lower floors to minimize stairs. Rooms on floors three through five.
