We had made a booking for Portus Hotel Karakoy and had read good reviews. However, we were shocked to land at a property which was more of a hostel rather than a hotel. The rooms didn't even have an attached toilet, 2-3 rooms on a floor were sharing the toilet. We were really shocked and after a lot of arguing with them, finally we were made to shift to their OTHER property, which was the Sub Hotel.
The Sub Hotel has very nice and courteous staff. The hotel itself, though a little too expensive, is located at a very good place, just walking distance from Istiklal Street and Sultanahmet also is not far. The Bosphorus Cruise starts from right across the road! The rooms are clean and very cosy, the interiors are artistic and have a cultural feel.
Overall the Sub Hotel was very nice. But be careful while booking, if you end up in Portus Hotel then you will have to share your toilet / bathroom!More
