We were prepared for the worst, as we had never been in any 1-star hotel before. When we left we said that this is more like a 2* superior... A clean hotel, a clean room with very old durniture but a rather comfortable bed, a TV set, bathroom amenities, a proper bathtub and even a hair dryer, let alone the... More

Hotel with real style (at least in the common areas, not in all the rooms), well located next to the train station. The breakfast is fine. The staff is welcoming. It is quiet and confortable. They offer very low rates, at least offseason. The cheap rooms are dark and have no outside windows, the TV is Portugese only. Many places,... More

Older hotel, but price was great, breakfast adequate. Across the road from the main station and an easy walk to the river Duro.Right in the centre of the old city. Plenty shops and restaurants close by. Porto is a wonderful old city.

We checked many hostels that day we arrived in Porto. All of them were quite expensive. The tourist office offered us this hotel for 36 euro and we had the intention to stay just 1 night and after search for something cheaper. All the other hotels and hostels we checked were very far from the center, dirty and did not... More

The rooms were the worst aspect of this place but at the price we paid that was to be understood. Lighting was poor, bathroom ok, room was warm, bed was ok, average cleanliness. The staff were very good and the included breakfast was fine. The outstanding aspect of this place was the proximity to Sao Bento rail station. We were... More

We chose this hotel as it is just across the train station and had a reasonable price. As historical center is not big, it is wise to stay close to the station if you are traveling with train so that you can easily reach the hotel. The room was clean and comfortable. The lady in the reception was kind and... More

The hotel is old and could use a facelift, but we found it to be enjoyable and clean. The location is perfect for exploring the city. The staff was helpful. The breakfast was good - make sure you try the fresh squeezed orange juice. I would recommend it to others.

I took my boyfriend for a suprise birthday trip to Oporto and thought that the choice of hotel would be its weakest point. However, finally we were satisfied. Our room (suite on the 4th floor) had a nice olde-worlde feel with antique furniture (without view), everything was clean, bathroom had a shower, a bathtub, a sink and a bidet. A... More

A very central hotel and although it is old fashioned, that is part of its charm. We had a spacious front facing room on the 4th. floor which had a street view towards the station. The furniture is all old but in keeping with the character of the hotel. All of the reception staff were very friendly and attentive and... More

I was given a single room which wasn't very attractive. Very small window, no view and very dark. The floor of the bathroom was covered in water. I reported this to reception when I went out and when I returned I was given a large room for 3 people. The room was spacious and very cold. There was no central... More
