We stayed here out of Season and were pleasantly surprised given some of the reviews found here. Our booking for a double room saw us allocated a twin, but this was soon rectified. Our welcome was not overwhelming but was certainly professional and the staff were friendly and helpful throughout. The rooms are very tired. We had what looks to... More

While dated, the hotel has character and is perfectly located for the main sights and close to Metro. Staff are very helpful and attentive. Fairly quiet except when other guests shout when coming in late. but that happens everywhere I guess.Air conditioning fairly quiet. Main objection was breakfast was very poor and lacking any variety. Supermarket breads and cakes and... More

The hotel is in a quiet area not far from the tourist centre and at first sight seemed just a little dated. However, the bathroom was very uncomfortable, water everywhere after taking a shower, wifi didn't work in the hotel room and the worst thing we found ants crawling all over the bed in the morning! Not the best place... More

This hotel in Porto was the 1st one of the 6 hotels where we stayed during our journey across Portugal. It is a standard hotel very well located, close to all sightseeings, in a walking distance (15 min) to the river and the quay. There is a metro station very close to the hotel. Very friendly staff, ready to support... More

This hotel is near the central area of Porto; the rooms are rather small but pleasantly furnished, and the reception staff were very helpful and friendly. Parking is rather expensive at 15 euro, but there is street parking available in the area, and is free from 8 pm to 8 am. There are no refrigerators in the rooms - apparently... More

Stayed for 5 days. Can say that the hotel is in walking range for most of the city's attraction points (didn't need the transport passes) and its situated in a quiet area. However, one of the bigger issues is that the sleep isn't very good due to the fact that any movement in the hallways or neighboring rooms can wake... More

We were allowed to checkin early and that always is a good thing after a ryannair flight ! The room assigned to us was huge with a single bed and another huge king bed. The pillows were really comfortable. As mentioned by almost everyone, the location is bang in the centre, very close to all attractions and 2 malls. The... More

We took a family trip and chose Sao Jose Hotel because it´s practically downtown. The staff is very friendly, Breakfast ins included and is adequate (European style). Parking under the hotel is a nightmare if your car seats more than 2 people. Most attractions of this beautiful city are within walking distance. The rooms are OK, they are good size.... More
