Fantastic staff: very friendly and making their best to help even in spite of language barrier. Cozy room, perfect location (center of the city and as close to the underground station as possible), good breakfast, fast wifi in rooms. Great view from the room window: top floor facing the square and av. dos Aliados. Flexible check out time. Pensao Avenida... More

We stayed two nights at Pensão Avenida and we don't regret it! First, the location is perfect. Avenida dos Aliados is a very central spor, with just 2 minutes walk from São Bento, Clérigos, Trindade, Rua de Santa Catarina, and so on. Besides, the metro is just outside the hotel. We booking a double room bu upon arrival they gave... More

The first thing that hits you at the Pension Avenida is that there are several steps to get your luggage up until you reach the level that has the elevator which will whisk you up to the Pension located on the top floors of a kinda art nouveau building in the center of Porto. If you can navigate those steps,... More

Located near to the most important public buildings and the principal rail station. The location of the hotel is so good, the service is not bad, have no food or facilities, but if you looking for a low cost and excellent place to business days, it is the best option.

We arrived without any booking in Porto and lucked upon Pensao Avenida. We paused at the entrance to the pensao when a woman near the entrance said, "It's not bad and you won't find anything cheaper in Porto. Plus the girl at the front desk is cute." With that we climbed the steps and took the lift to the 4th... More

Just arrived back from a short break at the Avenida. We stayed here 2 years ago and were glad to see the same staff were still there. Lolinda and the others still work so hard. The place is spotless and the breakfast gives you a good start to the day.This time we used the sight seeing buses which we found... More

We had a stuffy back room on the fourth floor, it looked and felt like a 1950's boarding house and nobody could or would communicate with us positively, hardly anyone smiled at us, it was just bleak. We spent the evening in the glamorous Hotel Intercontinental opposite pretending we were staying there until at last we had to return to... More

How to describe succinctly the two nights we spent here? The first night was AWFUL - we were in a room on the fourth floor (main floor of the hotel) and our window opened onto a balcony shared with the kitchen...! The heat was oppressive and there was no breeze to be felt - and the poor night employee (with... More

The hotel is central located in Porto. Metro station in front of it. No luxury, but very clean and friendly staff. Value for money.
