“Nice little hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

I took short break to Porto and stayed here for three nights. It's a small well run hotel , my room was small for a double room but clean and excellent value for money. The hotel is situated opposite an entrance to the Bolhao metro station which itself has a direct line to the airport - it takes about 30 minutes. The city centre is an easy walk away, the Douro riverside about 30 minutes on foot. The staff were really friendly and extremely helpful. One word of advice, it's not so good for those with mobility issues, there are no lifts and lots of stairs. There is no breakfast available but lots of small coffee bars nearby - boy do the Portuguese love their coffee! Would highly recommend this hotel, especially for those on a budget.

Room Tip: If you have a problem with mobility then get room on the first floor, there are no lifts and lots of...

Kind staff. Very clean. Nice terrace across from beautiful church (we could hear the children's choir practicing the evening of our stay!) Crazy small bathroom/shower as expected, but room was actually roomier than I expected. Super cheap and you can't miss it from the metro stop, which is a straight shot from the airport. Would definitely recommend for the budge conscious.

Room Tip: Ask for a terrace across from the church.

Very happy with this hotel recommended by a friend. It is located in a very good position close to the center and 1 minute walking distance from the metro station Bolhao which goes directly to the airport ( Line E) and to other city stations. The price for a double room is affordable, the room & bathroom was clean and modern, the staff is excellent; they speak English and are always willing to provide advice and recommendations. No breakfast is offered in the morning but outside is plenty of bars for very reasonable prices. WiFI access is available also in the room and for free. The only little disappointment is that the room is not well isolated from the noise outside the street and if you get a room on the first floor you might experience it. I would definitely recommend it for a short or long stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not on the street...it might be noisy.

Excellent location : when you get out of the metro BALHAO (direct line from the airport) the hotel is in front of you; it is next to the beautiful CAPELA DAS ALMAS and the main shopping street STA CATHARINA. Breakfast possibilities and restaurants of all categories in the surroundings.
I booked a single room for 4 nights and had a good bed (140*190), cupboard, 2 seats, table, flatscreen, fridge, airco. Although my room was on the 1st floor street side, no noise bothered me. Excellent FREE WIFI. Mini bathroom with WC, shower (plenty hot water) in the bath and the smallest hand basin ever. Good sized room for a single person (might be tiny for a couple but I understood the twin rooms were larger). Reception manned 24/7, friendly and English speaking. At €30/night I wholeheartedly recommend.

Room Tip: if you are not alone : book a twin room

Polished white marble greets one as well as bright helpful front desk. Price? Under 40,£
Metro across the street. Cathedrals down the street, across the street as well as much clothing and shoe shopping. Bakeries and many good restaurants are close by.
Return?
If my reservation is in early enough, especially for weekends.

Stayed there for only a night and is a very well locatedm¿, next to the metro station that comes from the airport. Rooms are simple and clean, but make sure to book one that is not on the top floors since there is no lift.
Staff was very helpful.
Look for deals on the internet when making your reservation.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street are very noisy.
