A night stay before Black Sea Cruise

Posted Oct 29, 2014 on Hotels.com
The only thing not so hot was our room was located at the 4th floor. They do help with luggage. Otherwise, it is quite a good location to explore old town. ( Need bring with you a lot of $ bills to tip. You don't have to, but being an American....) You will pass a hug supermarket /restaurants, before reach the B & B. It is not a walking distance to cruise port with luggage. They will call taxi for you and tell you not to pay more than 10TL a car no matter what the driver has to say (Good advice! The one we rode to the port gave the infamous reputation to Turkish Taxi Drivers! Pesky and greedy! Thank goodness the ride was short.).

The staff treated me well.

Portus is a small hotel in the Karakoy area. I like the location close to the Galata Bridge, the Bosphorus, and many of Istanbul's main attractions to visitors. The hotel doesn't have an elevator and that is a minus for the elder or the handicapped. Breakfast is very limited and the quality of the offering needs to be improved. Finally, I found the bed to be uncomfortable and the rooms exposed to noise both from the interior of the hotel and to the outside. I'd give it a 3 out of 5.

The employees were kind, price was resonable, room was clean and decorated, but it tooks some time for us to find the right position. In conclusion, not bad.

Leukste hotel in Istanbul voor deze prijs.

Posted Oct 15, 2014 on Hotels.com
Portus is het waarschijnlijk het kleinste maar zeker het vriendelijkste hotel van Istanbul. Een aanrader want voor dit geld vindt je niets beters Het ligt in een buurt die heeel Istanbul is. Alles binnen loopafstand Gezellig druk maar dat hoor je 's avonds niet in je kamer. Geen overlast. Personeel is geweldig en niets is te veel moeite. Ik ga er beslist nog eens terug. Binnen loopafstand naar de cruise-terminal.

Average in every way

Posted Sep 26, 2014 on Hotels.com
The hotel is located near the Karakoy harbor, and 5 minutes walk from the tram station. Its nice cozy place, with very very helpful reception staff. The rooms are extremely clean but pretty average, with serious space constraint. The breakfast is available 24 hours (self-service). There is no room service option - you have to climb down to the reception for any requirement. Also, the neighbourhood is pretty average. Overall - a decent value for money option.

This nice botique hotel is very conveniently located. You can walk to virtually all the main attractions and restaurants. The rooms are small but immaculate. The staff is very accommodating in every way

posizione strategica

Posted Sep 2, 2014 on Hotels.com
La posizione dell'hotel è sicuramente strategica per chi vuole pernottare in tranquillità, fuori dalla zona turistica. Peraltro l'hotel è facilmente raggiungibile dalla fermata della metro. Nelle vicinanze c'è una ottima pasticceria ed almeno un paio di ristoranti che meritano una serata. Il museo di arte contemporanea è raggiungibile a piedi. Anche il molo delle partenze dei traghetti (KaraKoy) è molto vicino e si possono raggiungere tutte le destinazioni evitando di andare al molo di Eminonu. Relativamente alla struttura, più di un hotel sembra di essere in un B&B, e gli spazi sono piuttosto limitati. Il personale è accogliente e sempre pronto ad aiutare. Nel complesso il giudizio è positivo, e l'albergo è sicuramente da consigliare

Good choice for backpackers 좋은 숙소입니다

Posted Aug 14, 2014 on Hotels.com
Most of all, they give good services. Two staffs, Ismail and Murat, are very kind (I've never seen staffs of hotels in Turkey who can give better service and smile than them) You guys can get many information of trip in Istanbul and Turkey not only when you stay there but through e-mail before trip. Rooms are not big but good enough to feel fresh and comfortable. Location is cool too. You can avoid many crowds near Sultanahmet because It is located in New city moreover, you can go to many famous places in old city easily using tram and public transportation(Tram station is located 5minute distance from there)But pick upservice was too expensive than taxi and metro. If you have enough time, I want to recommand using them lol. Have nice trip 무엇보다 서비스가 좋습니다. 직원인 이스마일과 무라트는 매우 친절하며 터키 및 이스탄불 여행에 관한 많은 정보를 얻을 수 있습니다.(영어가 조금이라도 된다면).숙소안은 넓진 않지만 쾌적하고 아늑합니다. 장소도 굉장히 좋은데요 복잡한 술탄아흐메트를 조금 벗어난 뉴 시티쪽에 있어서 (갈라타 다리 위쪽) 한적하며 교통 접근성도 매우좋습니다. 집 바로 앞에(대문나와서 3초) 마트도 있어서 식수 및 군것질 해결하기도 좋았어요. 다만 픽업서비스가 업체와 컨넥션이 되있는지라 조금 비싸서 그게 불만이었습니다.(35유로=약5만원) 택시(25000원)타시거나 시간있으시면 지하철(인당 2~3000원)타세요. 첫 터키여행 이사라면 강력히 추천합니다. 여행전에 여러가지 정보를 이메일을 통해 문의 가능한점은 보너스.
