This residence- hotel was 10 min walk to Metro station and Bus stop. A neat and clean residence and hospitality at Budget Price. You can find some Bakeries and Restaurants in closed Locations. You may enjoy your stay likes a home with limited guests.

We stayed 3 nights on 3rd floor in large, well-furnished, clean room. Jose & his son are very helpful, despite language difficulties, & operate a 24 hour door service for security. We felt that a modern card-key system, or even just supply of front door keys would have been far less troublesome. Good recommendations for very cheap & cheerful local... More

Room was very clean and comfortable to stay. Wifi was fast enough. Location is a bit far from a center of old town. Please note that when I stayed this hotel, an owner didn't accept me to pay a fee with a credit card.

My husband and I stayed for two nights and very much enjoyed our stay. Our room was on the third floor and was not small. Reading some reviews below my only comment is stop complaining. If you have the need for elegance and have the money for this; go down town. This is a small family run business. Jose is... More

The receptionist (Jose) was very friendly. He tried his best to explain us everything in a bit of Spanish and Portugese, but he didn't know any English. The room was a bit tight and small, but it was okay for its price. It's a 20 minute walk from the centre of Porto, but there's a bus stop very near. I... More

We would recommend it to people who are looking for a cheap and comfortable place to stay. Nice location (the grocery store and a good restaurant are just around the corner and it is just 20 min away from the university and city center. Good bus service. The Marques metro station is not far away) The room is clean, comfortable,... More

I am enjoying a wonderful stay at Residencial Vale Formoso. It is important to understand that this is a not a hotel. If you want hotel treatment you should pay for it. If you want a convenient location, a great neighborhood, helpful hosts, and a clean, spacious private room with private bathroom (for 30 euro) you will be very happy... More
