The hotel is in a very good location in the city centre and not far from the port area. This gave us the possibility to go back in the afternoon for a little rest before going out for dinner and to go around without taking any bus or underground. The furniture is a bit old, it is not a beautiful... More

This hotel was fantastic. The location was perfect - 10 min walk from the marina and right in the middle of the old quarter. We came straight from the airport via the metro which let us off ten mins away. We had a suite of rooms for just the two of us, along with a private and spacious bathroom. While... More

Fantastic location, within walking distance of everywhere, beside the train station and metro station. The hotel itself is basic but clean and very reasonably priced. Very good buffet breakfast. Friendly, helpful staff.

Just love it here. We have just had 4 nights here. Great value for money. You get what you pay for so dont stay here and expect 4 star luxury. its clean and comfy and all you need after a days sightseeing. The staff are so helpful. Great location and good breakfast!

It is not the kind of hotel you want to arrive to. Ok it is cheap but that doesnt't overcome it's deficiencies. It is just to sleep and not to return during the daytime. A hotel to forget, sleep in it only if everything else is taken.

I went with my mother for a weekend and chose a hotel on the cheap side but I never EVER thought that I would find something like this. The room they gave us was on the 5th floor, which looks like a floor on an adjacent building and has an absolutely different "decoration". I'll just let the pictures speak for... More

I stayed in Peninsular for 6 nights. I had a two-bed room for single person use. The room was big enough. Unfortunately it does not have an AC a defficiency in the hot Portuguese nights. Generally in this hotel you have a feeling that everything is going to fall apart. Everything is very dated. The shower is working oddly it... More

Location is excellent but the hotel is OK. Kinda old and musky smelling. Bathroom is very small and extremely dated. Water pressure is very very bad and there was no air conditioning in this hotel. Breakfast was decent. Can't say we would stay here again.

Our TAP Portugal flight got cancelled, so we could arrive to Porto one day later. I updated the hotel by mail with this information, hoping they would not charge us with the price of the first (missed) night. However, we found no empathy there, they charged us anyway, what's more, we got a mail from booking.com about our "no show".... More

We stayed in this hotel for one night. It is situated very close to the Sao Bento train station. It is a nice hotel, quite old with the staff speaking adequate english. We made a last-minute reservation and we had to stay in a triple room, although we were a couple, however, the price was reasonable. The room was very... More
