This hotel is in the downtown area of Porto. It's difficult to find a VW to park and traffic is mad. HINT: stop your car in the left lane of traffic right in front of the hotel. Put you hazard lights on and don't worry about it. Unload your luggage then go park around the block. The hotel is a... More

Nothing fancy in that hotel but we must say we had a good deal on a website so we did not mind as the location is ideal to walk around Porto because the hotel is in the middle of the city. The staff is friendly and helpful and with a parking 10 mn walks away (7,5 e/day) We would definitely... More

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.
