I was in room number 3. This particular room was spacious, clean, it looked like has just been renovated, very pleasant staff, right in the center of Porto. I saw another room on the top floor but it was too small, however 30% cheaper.

I was in this hotel in December 2013 and it did not disappoint me. It was just what we were looking for. Simple bedroom with shared bathroom and very nice hosts. They tried to help us as much as possible giving some clues to visit the city, even the language spoken between us was different :) The best thing is... More

There were no surprises when we stayed in this Pensao, everything was as we expected: the room was rather big, the bed comfortable, the bathroom ok (the shower could be improved, but it was nothing extraordinary), and the staff was friendly and keen to explain anything we asked them. It's true that the street was noisy two nights (of three),... More

I really enjoyed my stay here, I stayed an extra few days. Despite the cons I listed, the only one that was a problem for me was how chilly it was at night. I suggest the hotel get some portable heater. I stayed top floor room 14. Single room. Pros: -private bathroom. Great hot water pressure. Spacious. -great views of... More

Great location. Rooms are very clean, but small with old furniture, bed creaks whenever you move. Our room was pretty quiet, but you hear everything that is happening in hotel. Staff doesn't speak any english.

The staff is very available and the location is perfect. The room is very simple but confortable. There isn't lift, so be light! During the weekend the place around the hotel is very noisy, so if you can ask for a room on top.

The only thing going for this place is the cost and location. I had booked a double room, but instead in my room there were 2 single beds. I had been told there was good quality wifi, but it was ridiculously slow. I was on the top floor, with several heavy bags and no elevator. This was OK for me... More

My girlfriend and I stayed in Porto for a week at the end of March. When looking for a hotel we always put location with reasonable price at the heart of our hotel choice, this hotel seemed to tick all the boxes. How right we were. This hotel is centrally located, with nice size and very clean rooms. Staff are... More

About two weeks ago, my husband and I stayed at the Pensao Grande Oceano in Porto. Our room was a large room, that faced the street. We were happily surprised how quiet it was. The window really sealed off the street noises (it wasn't a very noisy street anyway). The lady at the front desk and her son were very... More

My partner and me stayed here for 2 weeks in May/June. We just wanted a clean place, not expensive, on a good location where we could shut our eyes and get a decent night of sleep after sightseeing all day. And that is what we got. The owners are really lovely and helpful, we didn't have any language trouble (just... More
