“Nice stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

We enjoyed our stay in general. Room OK, service OK, personnel OK. Only thing, the breakfast buffet could include some hot items (eggs, sausages, etc.), not such cold stuff. The hotel is highly recommended.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2015

When my husband first booked this hotel for our recent stay in Porto I was extremely wary. He paid less than $50 a night WITH breakfast. When we arrived at the hotel I was extremely surprised. The hotel was rather austere from the outside but inside was very nice. The rooms were small but cozy, with a decent size bathroom and nice shower (beware the floor when getting out of the shower... extremely slippery when wet!). The bed was comfortable and the breakfast was good. The rooms were very quiet... you don't hear your neighbors like you usually do in cheaper hotels but you do hear noise from the hallway. The hotel is a bit far from town center but with a metro stop just outside the hotel it takes only 10 minutes to get to the main railway station! In addition below the hotel is a food court with several fast food restaurants.. they are very good and reasonably inexpensive. There is also a small shopping center with a grocery store and a few other shops.

I liked it !
It is a 2** hotel only and so, i was anxious and thinking if i would like it. I liked it!
Nothing special but you have all the basic in the room , at entrance, at breakfast, at lobby. Good.

The hotel it's placed in a quiet street. No street noise.

The breakfast shows less different possibilities that a 'normal' hotel of course, but it had always what i want and used to eat. Only the variety of food is reduced. But they have all the basic stuff of a south europe country breakfast. No sauciches or eggs, for example. But perhaps if you ask for it at the lady in the breakfast room, they will do it at the spot.

The place is very clean and the people working there is nice and friendly.
I was been there already two times and it was always good enough for what i need and for what i want to pay.

You have a surface metro line 50m away that takes you any place at Porto. This city is very well served with this surface metro option!

You also have a small shopping mall with lots of eating options just beneath the hotel. Perfect to complement what you need and don't have at Ibis.

All rooms have WC of course. Even at a 2** hotel like this.

WIFI exists and it is free!

I didn't used the meals room for dinner or lunch. I didn't used the room service as well. But if you use it keep in mind it is a 2** hotel. It may takes some time as they are not 'ready behind the balcony' at kictchen with the food ready to serve to you - i think. At least i wouldn't get surprised if that happens.

Enjoy your stay !

Fast check in and check out. The rooms are in accordance to what you pay for them and has for the location, the hotel has a subway station and shopping with a lot of eating options just beneath it. It's also located in a Campus (there are a lot of campus in Porto so make sure its the correct one) if you happen to be a student/teacher.

Room Tip: Parking isn't free. Try to get a room facing the universities.

The room smelt bad. The quality is adequate to the number of stars (2), but you could clean it better. Close to the metro. There's wifi and shipping center under the hotel. Next time I will choose something different
