The Hotel is located on the Santa Catarina street, which is connected to many touring places. The Hotel is located at the north part that is a bit away from the Duoro River, however within 10 to 15 minutes walk one can reach to the city center and to most of the places of interest in Porto. Surprisingly, the hotel... More

Situated very close to the center of Porto (Oporto), Hotel America is easily accessible by car and on foot. They offer a parking on location for 10€ a night – keep in mind it’s a garage parking so it would be vise to check maximum height if you have a large car or baggage on the roof. Room was very...

Definitely value for money, the room was spacious and clean although a bit outdated. A plus of this hotel is that it has it own garage to park your car which is a big plus on this price range and in central Porto. The staff was nice and the breakfast was good with plenty of choice.

The hotel was clean and the breakfast generous and the room was good for the money. The receptionist was very friendly. It was not to far from the center of Porto...of course you need to walk a bit but this is nice.... it's good enough for a short stay in Porto

Although the hotel was clean and the breakfast generous, the room was very dark, gave onto a dilapidated area. The receptionist was not very friendly, the price was exaggerated. It looked like it was a failed attempt at being modern. Only the waitress at breakfast was amiable, but the staff looked so busy and nervous it wasn't very relaxing.

The hotel is well located in the centre of Porto. The rooms are very reasonably priced (we paid about €50 a night in the high season) and the staff are very friendly. The breakfast has a decent selection of food. That said I would not stay here again. We had a room facing the street. I thought the room was... More

We were moved here from a booking at a cheaper hotel down the road as there was a problem with the bathroom in our room there. We were not asked to pay more but were offered the buffet breakfast every day and even a tasting of some port. Our original booking did not include breakfast at all so we were... More

Localisation - very good. Room and bathroom - average. The smell in bathroom - scary. On the third floor we had problems with wi-fi. Service in hotel - I expected more. Service in restaurant and breakfast - very good. Luckily they had tasty and varied breakfast, comparing to other places.
