I stayed there for 8 nights with my friend. The price is amazingly low and the staffs are extremly friendly! It has a pretty good location, though we did not know it when we arrived, just 5 mins away from the metro Marquês and we only took 15 minutes from hotel walking down to the main pedestrian street! it's a...

Stopped here from the 15th - 22nd May on a university trip. The staff were excellent, always very friendly and wiling to help with any query that you had. I think it is a family run hotel so this adds to the feeling. For the hotel itself, you do pay for what you get. In line with the cheap price... More

Very friendly staff, basic but clean facilities, a little far from the centre on foot (25 minutes downhill) but 5 minutes from Metro station Marques. The very small hotel parking was already full when we checked in. However, street parking was free as it was Easter bank holiday weekend. Reception told us as soon as a space became available. The...

Hotel located 5min by walk from metro station. Tasty breakfast has been included. Room and bathroom was clean. Only noisily working elevator makes me nervous fo first minutes but... More

I had a great experience at this hotel. The staff was extremely friendly, breakfast was tasty and generous (served individually instead of buffet style), and the room was clean and quiet, all for a very affordable price. The decor is definitely outdated, but that did not bother me. The only thing that bothered me was the darkness of the hallways;... More

Clean and basic room, but what a staff and what a location. The people here, Annabell, Juan Carlos and the guys we don't know names of were so kind, so helpful, and so willing to give you some of their time, it was a joy. The hotel is located really near the metro, bus stop, taxi rank, or a brisk... More

Rooms clean and spacious. Avoid rooms near the elevator: noisy and makes you not sleep at night. Breakfast simple but plentiful. Staff very kind. Free indoor parking is difficult, but is convenient free parking on the street. Metro station 500 meters. Good quality-money.
