I spent 2 nights at Porto Riad Guesthose and I could not wait to leave. Very nice oriental decorations and stuff, but dirty. My room had this very funny smell that I have no idea where it came from, but it persisted. The window was so old that one rainy day when I arrived there was a little pool of... More

Porto riad is a very nice guesthouse. Staff was very friendly and the breakfast was very nice. The outdoor area was very cosy. The guesthouse is very close to downtown. Would definitely stay there again.

I chosed this guest house for a relaxing weekend in Porto with my partner, mainly for the nice location (10mins by feet from city center in a quiet zone with a lot of parking spots) and for the theme of the place (north african style). And I was amazed when I arrived: the staff was very kind, talkative and warm.... More

It's an old charming building in a nice Maroccan decoration but also know it has some inconvinience. In the evening the lights went out and no wifi for 2 hours. This happens often... It's noisy because of the wooden floors and the noise outside (street and disco) The kitchen is really small and old stuff. Breakfast is provided. Basic but... More

Everything about this hotel is just horrible! Some rooms in the basement have no windows, and others are so loud because of the people in there and the street... It's dirty, mouldy and... just horrible :/

I stayed in this hotel in October 2014., and because fo the reviews and pictures here I expected a great little budget hotel. Instead I got a stuffy moldy room in which clothes did not dry, they actually got wet from the humidity. Everything creaks, the plumbing from the rooms above is whooshing next to your head the whole night,... More

This hotel was just an awful experience I would like to forget ASAP. 1 - The hotel is built in the "Arabic" or "Moroccan" whimsical style, but it's actually to cover the fact that it's half-finished and dirty. The rooms are awfully built. 2 - They put us in a -1 floor room with no windows anywhere... They have a... More

Beautifully decorated in Moroccan style throughout, with spacious relaxing areas including outdoor terrace. Very pleasant helpful hosts. We stayed here for 3 nights and booked one of the downstairs bedrooms. The room was spacious, clean, and was serviced daily. It was also wonderfully cool during the very warm weather while we were there. The bed was comfortable and the area... More

Have you ever heard of the show, "Hotel Impossible"? Well, I think that Anthony Melchiorri would be appalled if he saw this place. Avoid the basement rooms at all cost! I don't care how much of a budget you are on. The rooms smell of musty sewage and there isn't any good ventilation. They're dusty and mostly. One of the... More
