“Not bad at all”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

A small hotel at the heart of Porto. The price is more than fair. We had two rooms ( a double and a triple) and we payed only 70 euros in total including the car parking. The rooms are very simple but very clean and the girls at the reception were very kind and helpful.
The location and the price make this hotel perfect for someone who use the room just to sleep.

Stayed October 2013

Great location right on the main strip, which is quiet at nighttime so no problems sleeping. However there were three of us in a small room, three single beds literally side by side. It was very cozy (too cozy if you ask me). Staff were fine and spoke decent English. They provided towels which was a bonus.

O pior hotel de esta cidade a esse preço.
This is my second time in Porto, but this last experience was disappointing. The guy at the reception was really rude and pissed off. The internet connection almost inexistent, and no help to solve the problem somehow. Apparently the breakfast was not included (only for certain type of clients) and a single room for 30 euros is too damn expensive for Porto. Definitely you can find something better, with less rumour, for a convenient price. Porto people are really nice and there a places which really transmit the spirit of the city, but not this one.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

We caught the metro to Aliados from the airport, came up out of the station and there was Hotel Paulista in front of us .A very small lift takes you up to the reception where we greeted by Claudia who speaks very good English.
The room was just redecorated and very comfortable, ours was overlooking the square, it maybe noisy for some people. The rooms are very clean, plenty of hot water and free wifi in the room. Breakfast is available
There are plenty of good restaurants nearby and good shopping. I can recommend the hop on hop off bus tour. The stop is across the square and for 20 euros each we got 2 days on the bus, a Port bodega tour and a 50 minute boat trip on the Douro
Porto is easy to walk around if you don't mind a few hills. We are planning a return visit
