I'm delighted with this little hotel. The location is fabulous and the room is really great. For the price you absolutely can't beat it. And you get a pretty decent breakfast as well. I'm thrilled to be here a week!

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights, it was a very good experience that helped us maximize our trip to Porto city. The location is just great around the corner from St. Catarina street with many shops and cafes. At the end of this street is beautiful Batalha Square and if you completed your way up, you will find... More

Quite convenient location on the border of city-center, every main sight is within maximum 10 minutes reach, main shopping street with its famous Café Majestic and the main market just across the corner. One minute from metro station with direct connection to airport (a 50 minutes ride).Overall, we liked our stay at the hotel, but weren't overly impressed. We would... More

Great transport links to/from the Airport and train station, being just 100m from the Metro line and into town using bus or metro. Warm welcome from efficient and helpful staff. Comfortable air-conditioned room. Family room had two separate bedrooms.

Average hotel. The hotel room floor cracks when stepping on it. The beds were cracking too by every move you made. Shower was ok. Hotel is in walking distance to the centre. Breakfast was good! Staff is very friendly.

We booked into hotel São Jose and when we arrived were told our rooms were not available. They called a taxi and transferred us to another hotel which was absolutely terrible. We were not happy with our experience overall.

A small, friendly hotel, Sao Jose is very well positioned to explore Porto's old town and quayside - rooms are fine, little bit tired perhaps and I'd recommend having one that overlooks the street rather than one at the back -although light sleepers might disagree. We were driving south afterwards and Sao Jose has parking at c.15 euros for 24... More
