Within walking distance of ferry, Galata Bridge, Galata Tower, small restaurants and Museum of Modern Art, Portus House offers clean, modern accommodation. Breakfast is simple (help yourself to ready-made sandwiches, fruit and tea/coffee) and the rooms are small but well-laid out. Hair dryers, towels, good linen and reading lamps in all rooms. Staff speaks excellent English - Lutfi is great?...

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..
