Good place for a night or two, very cheap, I had a big room with a huge bed (N°3) the air conditioning was working and the room was warm, (I had been scared by comments on this site saying there was no heating system) and they are installing central heating. Yes there are stairs to climb to reach your room,... More

We have stayed at this hotel during January and we got 400€ stolen from our room from a wallet inside pants. Staff didn't do anything even to check who entered the room only they claimed they didn't do that and no one entered room. We have such a bad experience with this stay. DON'T STAY HERE.

We are sorry about your bad experience. After your callings we contacted the company who manages our security lockers system. They issued a report (for which we paid 200 Euros) that proves that after your check-in your room was only opened in the check out day after you left. And, because you asked for us not to clean the room... More

The first impression wasn't that good because they were remodeling so it was noisy and the lobby was dirty. Staff is nice but they don't speak English (they try their best though), they let me do early check in. Wifi was good in al the hotel. It smells humid but otherwise is clean. I think is a good value for... More

Since the hotel is located so central, you can find all you need next to it: nice cafes and restaurants where you can have... More

Shower took forever to drain. Smells like there has been water damage. Seems very clean otherwise. Wifi was great. Quiet. Beds comfortable. Helpful front desk. No elevator but that wasn't an issue. Really close to the train station. Easy to find.

Stayed here last week for a few days. Big plus is that it's very central, and rooms cleaned everyday. No breakfast, but lots of cafes nearby. If stairs are a problem for you, avoid, as no lifts and steep stairs to the rooms. In reception is a terrible musty smell. The rooms were fine so I didn't really mind. Free... More

This is the family run hotel with the charm and friendliness of Portugal finest traditions. Modest, but very comfortable. All rooms have high quality bathrooms. Immaculately clean. Freshly renovated. It takes 6 minutes by walk from the nearest underground stations. If you walk from the Porto railway station - it is up the hill. Easy access from the airport, only... More

Excellent location, spacious room with a big bathroom, clean. Never saw such a big shower head ... But sadly the shower had no door/ curtain on one side so we couldn't splash too much. No lift and we were on the top floor so tough with bags. The staff were helpful - and have free luggage storage. Can be really... More

After realising our current accomodation was the home to a brothel, we quickly made a new booking. Good price, good location. Lots of stairs, and uneven ones. Clean nice bathroom, hot water was great. Although you can very easily hear the plumbing and the bathroom (and associated noises) next door - sometimes it felt like we were in their bathroom...
