The rooms are very small but the location is very good. The staff was ok, nothing to say, and the room was clean. The walls are tiny so we can hear the people next door. For the price is a good option. Nice place to stay 2 nights maximum.

Choose this hotel with easyjet holidays. To be honest I didn't care about the quality of the hotel as I was looking for good location. Staff was ok... Not impressed but I expected low budget for the price. I literally slept there and popped in for a quick change while exploring the city.

Oh man, where do I start? This place is basically a dump. The building was dilapidated. The room was sizable, but drab. No decor to speak of. The bed has thin, saggy mattress, and it smells musky. But everything works, though: the lights, the tiny tv, the hot water, etc. I found no issue with cleanliness, but I wore my... More

The hotel we booked had a water issue and they moved us here. We would not have stayed except that we have paid for 2 nights already at the other hotel. It was very basic and not very comfortable. The doors to the balconies did not lock properly and you could hear street noise all night . The building is... More

Our room had a mouldy smell and walls had moulds. Damp was everywhere, after the night the newspaper which was left on the commode near the bed became damp! The wardrobe had a nasty smell, I did not risk to put my clothes in it. I am happy that I had to spend only one night in this hotel.

To say staying here is slumming it is an understatement. Never stayed anywhere as bad as this before. Will never trust a friend to book my accommodation again. Suspect wiring in the bathroom, Dodgy water taps and shower, not all the lights were working. The décor was totally substandard, and the bedding grubby. When we got home after 2 nights... More

Small and very cheap typical pension. Perfect position, just steps from shops, public transport, city center and the famous "Bairro Alto". Clean rooms ( daily maid service ) and very helpful staff. Absolutely a gret choice if you're looking for a cheap andclean option, in the best position.

Would advise all fellow travellers to stay well clear of this one. Not only was my i-phone charger stolen from my room but the reception staff offered no assistance whatsoever. The wouldn't phone the police, wouldn't question cleaning staff and generally took a very dismissive attitude to the whole thing. The best advice they could offer me was to "not"... More

Have just returned from staying 4 nights at this budget hotel. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to other travellers on a limited budget who want somewhere in a great central location. Our room was at the back of the hotel and very quiet, it was cleaned every day, and the staff were really friendly, giving us maps and great... More

Stayed here for a week in February, 2010. First we didn't find the hotel, because the sign was so unnoticeable. Me and my friend (both students) didn't expect much from the hotel, as you can imagine, we are super-low-budget-travelers and payed about 110e per person for five nights. Cheap huh?! The room itself was pretty good, I mean for the... More
