Very close to the city centre, but there is a short up-hill hike from the nearest metro stop, which could be inconvenient with luggage.There is no lift in the hotel either, which could also be a problem. The rooms were clean but spartan, with no safe, fridge, or wardrobe. The power cut-out several times over a couple of nights. The... More

The hotel was very nice, clean and situated very closely to the city center. The bed was a bit uncomfortable but as we found out later, that is probably normal in Portugal. The staff was very helpful and nice. There were lots of small caffees and restaurants around to enjoy a breakfast. Since the hotel is close to the bar... More

I had read some good Trip Advisor reviews about this hotel so we decided to book with them for a trip to Porto last June. We wanted an economical hotel in a good location and it looked like it fit the bill. I was a bit concerned after booking because I never received a confirmation number or confirmation email. I...

It was very clean and comfortable. The room was very simple, but had everything we needed. The location was also very convenient. We had no issues while staying here, and I would definitely recommend it.

The hotel is within walking distance of most of the attractions of Porto and has public transportation nearby as well. Although it's not the fanciest place you can book, it's great value. Nothing really to remark except maybe that the communication with the staff could be quite challenging because their spoken English is not that good. I had the impression... More

The hotel is overall nice and the staff helpful. Rooms are clean. Nothing fancy though as room was pretty small as per the tv that you can't really watch from the bed. The location is brilliant just in the centre and close to most of things.

The hotel is perfectly located within walking distance to many historical attractions. Room was clean and sufficient. Price was excellent, as we booked in advance and benefited from some special promotion paying only 23 EUR per double room (one shared bathroom for two double rooms). Reception staff was very friendly and assisted us in most of our needs: - tickets... More

Hotel is very well located, near some of the main attractions of Porto. Service is OK, nothing special. Room was clean and had a nice small balcony. Free wireless internet worked well. Hotel is good conditions due to recent renovation. Towels and bed sheets seemed a bit too old. There is no elevator which may be an issue depending on... More

The location is pretty awesome (next to the streets with the bar, the famous library and a subway station) and it was quite cheap. Clean, comfortable beds, lots of breakfast options near the place. It's not luxury but it's not intended to be. It's nice and practical.

I thought this hotel was great. Although I can't remember how much we paid I know it was very reasonable. We managed to walk to most places. Rooms were clean, modern and we had no problem with noise. Great place and would defs stay again. No laundry service available but the lady directed us to a nearby Laundromat so all... More
