The rooms are very basic, on the morning I didn't have hot water. No soap in the shower, few electrical sockets, almost no choice for breakfast. But the hotel is very well located and affordable and the staff was friendly

Good points: 1) Located at city center 2) very good pricing 3) Clean 4) you can get breakfast in 3.5 euro per day per person 5) Due to its location , you don't have to buy public transport tickets at least for one day since you can cover everything which is located in city center by foot in one day....

We were happy to find this inexpensive, well-located hotel on a busy weekend. Old but very clean, spacious room and bathroom, everything worked well. However, our room faced the busy main street, and to say the street and party noise was loud is an understatement! All night long. Not the fault of the hotel, of course...we did not view the...

This is an old building in the very heart of the city. No views but scrupulously clean with air con and heating. Beds made up every day and changed several times a week. Lovely staff and the manager is very helpful and speaks quite a few languages. There is the restaurant Girassol on the ground floor which is very good... More

Hotel Girassol is a budget hotel in the centre of Porto. It is just 100 m from main city square Praca Liberdade and 200 m from Sao Bento train station. Metro stations are also near, and bus station is just around the corner. But, you can easily walk all the way to Douro river and Caisa Riberia, it's really close.... More

Quite clean, close to the principal attractions of the city centre. Minimal furniture, good for those people who don't pretend to spend all the time at the hotel. It's also close to cafes, banks, supermarkets and a great churrascaria. The staff speaks portuguese, spanish and english. It has been a pleasent stay!
