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

You get what you pay for. Nothing fancy or great about the room but it was really cheap so there is nothing to complain about. Security there is definitely very good as they lock their doors after a certain time and they would open it whenever you come back. Best part is that the owner would be so happy to... More

We stayed at the Residencia Vale Formoso for one night in late May 2014. It’s quite hard to decide what rating it should be, 2 or 3 star, I’ll let you judge from my list of pros and cons below: Pros: 1. Clean – no dirt/dust. Bedroom, ensuite and house very tidy. 2. Nice owners – friendly, accommodating, provided us... More

Thank you for your review. About the cons, we would like to say a few clarification: - The room you choose was an economic double room, so it is smaller than the standard. - About the TV you could advise in front desk so we could solve the problem. - The breakfast and the general service like you said is...

Pros: Great location, you can walk to downtown in 25 minutes max. Also, the personnel is very friendly. They try to solve your problems ASAP. The price was great too, just 20 Euros per room. If you have a car, free parking around the corner. Cons: The main photo on hotels.com is deceiving, that is not the correct one. The... More

Thank you for the review. Like you said we have a very low price. At this price is impossible for us to have a heating because the light cost would be enormous. So we preffer to provide a lower price and an extra blanket than have air conditioning and increase the price. About the smell we must remember that this... More

This hotel is really simple and friendly. I have been there for 4 nights with my girlfriend and that was so good. It is only 20 min walk from the historical center and bit less from the big metro station so it is easy. Joseph; owner of the hotel is so friendly that is has helped us every time that... More

We went to Porto for one week and looked for something cheap near the center. Vale Formoso performed this task very well. I think its about 15 minutes to walk to the city center. Sometimes it was beacause of the heat very exhausting to walk, so we took the bus (the station is VERY close to Vale Formose) or we... More
