“good and BAD”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Ok ill start off with the good:
Location location location, good breakfast (oranges were amazing),very nice and helpful staff.
lets move to the bad:
The hotel is there since 1905,and it shows...
we think the beds are from the spanish inquesition or from some prison..so HARD!! its like sleeping on concrete.
its our first night in portugal and we havent slept in around 48 hours..we go to lisbon,took the train and what not and my wife STILL couldnt sleep because of the noise outside..
The pressure in the shower isnt very good and what tha heck is the deal with the tap inthe bathroom?!?! Its soooo short that its practicaly inline with the sink so you cannot wash your hands let alone wash your teeth and when you open it, it squirts on the sink which has an angle to the floor so.the floor is always wet!
renovate much?!?!

We got a very friendly reception here, though be warned that reception is manned by several different staff, with high potential for miscommunication! The hotel is centrally located, both for exploring on foot and taking daytrips further afield from Sao Bento station. Rooms, facilities and plumbing are a little tired, but rooms themselves are clean and generous in size. Very good breakfast.

A well located hotel in the centre of Porto with great staff. Very good value, would definitely stay here again. It is just a few minutes walk to the Aliados Metro station and also to the Sao Bento railway station.There are bus stops even closer. There are lots of restaurants and bars in the surrounding area and the main 'party' street, Galeria de Paris, is only 3 blocks away. The main shopping street, Rua Santa Catarina, is also only a short walk.

Just a 2 min walk from the aliados metro station, so marvellously central, and great value for money. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful providing maps, directions and advise on places to visit. Nothing was to much trouble, Even on departure day with check out at 12, they stored our bags till 6pm and allowed us to change for our departure. The room although basic was spotlessly clean with towels changed daily, plastic double glazed window kept it nice and quiet. (only downside no safe). breakfast was buffet style and more than enough to keep us going all day. Would deffiinately make a return visit to the hotel and recommend it to anyone

Room Tip: 206 on the front with a small balcolny

Great place to stay in Porto. Within a 10 minute walking distance to all the major sites. Lots of good restaurants nearby. Also within about 500 feet of a subway stop. The front desk personnel are wonderful and very helpful and there's always one that speaks English in addition to many other languages. I would stay here again anytime!

This is a centrally located hotel that is very good value with nice, very clean rooms and an excellent breakfast.

It is only one block from Praca de Trindade, metro, tourist buses and only a couple of blocks from the bus to the beach!

The best part of this hotel for us was the staff. They were very friendly, extremely helpful and went out of their way to help us with any queries that we had.

I would highly recommend this hotel for a stay in Porto.

The location of this hotel is fantastic - right in the heart of Porto and ideal for exploring the city. The public areas have a nice ambiance with attractive decor and appealing art work. Unfortunately the bedrooms are much less interesting! The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast buffet was very welcome. We would be happy to stay in this hotel again.
