A friend and I stayed 8 nights at the pensao central. We chose it because of its central location, since we wanted to be close to the beach (surfing) and also close to the public transportation. Both things are possible at this place. Also the great service we received. The rooms are very clean at any time and the whole... More

Arrivng late, I was cheerily greeted, and offered a choice of rooms. Since I was staying as a single the first night but expecting a friend for the second night, they gave me a double room no questions asked so Iwouldn't have to change rooms in the morning. Breakfast was simple fresh bread, croissant & beverage, served with a smile.... More

500 meters to the start off point for the Portugues Camino coastal route from Porto (Matosinhos) to Santiago de Compostela. Charming couple operate this spotlessly clean hotel located along the tram/metro line from Campanha train station where we arrived from Lisbon. Quiet and light room. Close to pretty city park and good choice of restaurants. Very reasonably priced. Good breakfast.

This is the most delightful B&B I have ever stayed in. The people who run it are super-friendly and kind and really look after their guests - nothing is too much trouble, and they smile lots! They area 1 -2 minute walk to the metro and 5 mins walk from the beach. The cleaner Suzanna is just delightful and leaves... More

I stayed here for the recent Primavera Sound festival. The hostel is located 2 minutes walk from the metro and 15 from the festival itself. Although the room is small it was adequate for one person. Cleanliness was excellent and the cleaners even made the effort to neatly fold any clothes I had left on chairs or the bed. Breakfast... More
