Portus House is an ideal base to explore Istanbul from on foot or by public transportation. The Old City is just over the Galata Bridge, Istiklal is up the hill, and the metro and ferry terminal are within easy walking distance. The Karaköy neighborhood is safe, and there are several excellent cafes and restaurants within a few blocks. Like the... More

The room was great and very affordable. Everything was very clean and well decorated and quiet and the staff was extremely helpful. The area was mediocre but it is within walking distance to nice neighborhoods and prominent sites.

The location is great and central, and the staff is very helpful. It is clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend both for long and short stays. There is a supermarket in front of the hotel, so it is easy to get food.

You can really trust the very good rates on tripadvisor and booking.com! The hotel with its central location and its very nice staff was perfect for our weekend trip to Istanbul. We had a 3 bedroom and shared the bathroom with another room, it was always clean.

This hotel is in a great part of Istanbul--tonnes of cute cafes everywhere, Gulluoglu (the best Baklava) and the port. You can also easily walk across the bridge to Sultenahmet area or walk up to Istiklal for some shopping. The tram stop isn't far, which can take you to Besiktas, Ortakoy, Dolmabahce palace or other ports. The port that is... More

We booked this hotel after an advice from a friend. Unfortunately in the end due to personal issues we couldn't make it to go to istanbul. I found Portus way to deal the matter very professional, polite and comprehensive. Thank you again for your service and your understanding. I really wish you the best.

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..
