I had a good room with spa bath and tv. It was very clean and had a thermostat to help regulate heat. I also had a balcony but rained every day so couldn't make much use. Handy to have a torch as had power cut and no lighting on floor (5th). Breakfast was average, continental style,suited me. No tea coffee... More

Ignore what the other reviews say! This is a DUSTY and old hotel, quite a walk away from the centre! Breakfast is ok which is why it has one star. Humidity in the room is so badly regulated that I'm either shivering or perspiring. Staff is quite helpful.

Excellent breakfast. Helpful and friendly staff who speak good English. Very good value for money hotel. Spotlessly clean. Comfortable and quiet. Well fitted bathroom with toileteries. Quite close to metro station and easy to find. The location is a 20 minutes walk away from the center in a less attractive area but I encountered no problems. I would certainly return... More

with the excellent breakfast in the smart, if window-less, basement of this hotel. We had a large room with balcony but awful weather so no use ! The staff were very attentive. Some people might prefer to stay nearer to the city centre as the area is run down and not pleasant to walk around. Room 601 has the lift... More

...and you want value for money, think about Hotel Século. Ok, when you arrive by metro and start your descent on Rua Sta Catarina you may wonder why several houses need a serious make over, but when you arrive you will find a decent hotel for a fair price. Nice rooms, good breakfast and good working wifi. And as for... More

Judging by the ratings given by other guests, I had very high expectations of this two-star about a half hour's walk from Porto's centre. What I found was very clean and relatively comfortable and reasonable, but not exceptionally spectacular. Room was clean and furnished adequately, breakfast was continental, service was friendly. Free parking area has some of the tightest spots... More

We walked to everything we wanted to see , including the waterfront. the staff were very helpful , the breakfast was... More

The hotel is situated on a main street running down into Porto centre, in a rather run-down area, although near to a metro stop. Despite the surroundings the hotel is welcoming, very clean and with spacious rooms. Our bathroom had a bath with a shower over it. Solid double glazed windows mean quiet rooms. All very comfortable and wi-fi free... More

We stayed for one week in this hotel and had a really nice time , it is in a slightly shabby area but lots of places in Porto are a bit run down and a lot of derelict buildings but the Seculo is clean with great staff and free parking on site , it is only a 10/15 minute walk... More
