Be careful before you book this place particularly if you have mobility issues. Very basic, although well,placed in town. The rooms are on the 4th and 5th floor which are accessible by a very ancient lift ,which was broken for length of our stay! Also before reaching the lift clients have to navigate about 30 steep stoats which isn't for... More

Central location is about as good as it gets - breakfast redeemed a rather unwelcoming experience. No parking, very steep narrow stairs to entrance, really unfriendly, unhelpful person on reception. Room straight across from kitchen (behind reception) so woken up in the wee small hours with the clatter of crockery and constant chatter of staff. If you are independent, able... More

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
