The hotel is cheap with friendly staff, excellent wifi, satysfying breakfast, cleaning service very good. It has free parking. The surroundings are very sad (not to blame the hotel). If you walk hard, you may reconsider as it isalways a hike up the hill, otherwise if you are on short budget and want to stay at nice, comfortable hotel then... More

The hotel is located within 20 minutes from the city center on a quite part of the street, the room was clean, comfortable and adequately furnished with a flat screen television that had a multitude of channels, the breakfast was very good with a decent selection and cakes and coffee. The staff was friendly and very helpful and gave us... More

We stayed at this hotel for a weekend, we were a group of three people, and we liked our stay. Friendly staff, breakfast included within the room price, good quality and variety. Although the room was a little bit small for three people, we didn't need more since we only needed the hotel for sleeping and having a shower. It... More

Located within a long but doable walk from the city center. The street the hotel is on has a lot of empty houses, actually most of Porto is like that. The hotel is very good, rooms, bathrooms, balconies are very specious, nice practical design, clean. Staff is friendly and helpful. There is free parking in the hotel's gaurage. They allowed...

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
