Why so chic?
Why travel experts chose this hotel
Only when you book with Chic
A much loved, kooky boutique hotel, Portus House is set in an Art Nouveau building in the Beyoglu area, just a scenic stroll away from most of the main sights. Perhaps it’s not much to look at from the outside but, once through the door, you’ll find a fun and fresh hotel. Colourful walls and friendly messages make up the rooms and there are plenty of entertaining design features dotted about, from swinging lights to faux taxidermy.
This is a relatively small Chic Retreat, with only 10 rooms, so you can expect a personable vibe and attentive service. The owners and staff here are wonderful and full of enthusiasm for their city, with plenty of suggestions on what to see and do.
It's worth noting that there is no lift, so the hotel is not suited to those less mobile.
A continental breakfast is served and is included in most room rates (see detail below). While there is no restaurant on site, a communal kitchen is available for guests' use and there are plenty of excellent options nearby.
There are 10 rooms at Portus House, which have all been tastefully done with bright colours and modern furnishings. It's worth noting that some offer shared bathrooms, so if you like your privacy we’d recommend upgrading. If you’re travelling with the little ones, there are Family Rooms available.
Located in Beyoğlu, you’re well-placed to explore; just a 5-minute walk will take you to Galata Bridge and Galata Tower, while a 10-minutes walk will bring you to the Grand Bazaar. The hotel staff are more than happy to arrange tours and boat trips for you.
