“Excellent location, friendly staff, well-equipped rooms”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

The hotel is just 1 minute from Faria Guimaraes metro station, 3-4 stations from the old city centre (Ribeira). It's not easy to find, as the building are numbered randomly (it seems so). Just go uphill from the Faria Guimaraes station and you'll find it on your left-hand side.

The room was clean and well-equipped (en-suite bathroom with toiletries, double bed, TV, A/C). Staff was very friendly and helpful, we were even offered free bottle of delicious Porto wine. Given very reasonable price and great location, I wouldn't think twice before staying again in that hotel.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012

The price and location is perfect. Subway really close by. Presence of the staff was very poor. Everytime we came to the hotel we had to ring a bell and had to wait until somebody would come from another house in the street. Small rooms, but clean. Shower was ok. No breakfast included.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2011

This is a small hotel, with charming rooms. The rooms are colorful and cheerful. The manager was a lively cheerful woman, great fun. Breakfast is nice. The location is good, near a metro stop, and only about twenty minutes walk to town center. The only negative is that rooms in the front are noisy during the day from traffic but quiet at night.
