I wasn't expecting a room that was suitable for a brothel, not that I have anything against rooms suitable for a brothel. There were more mirrors than the Hall of mirrors at Madame Tussaud's. So the 200 of me, reflected in the mirrors, will write this review. For the price the place was fine, a much larger, better equipped room... More

Thank you for your evaluation. It is important to refer that the type of room you had is only one of two of that category (with mirrors in the ceiling). All the other rooms are very standard as you can check in our photos. More

Cost: although cheap, there are far nicer places that could be stayed in for the money. If you aren't too picky and just want a comfy bed then it's worth the money. The good points: the bed was comfortable, there was air conditioning, a wardrobe and an ensuit. The person who greeted us was friendly and helpful. Our room was... More

The residence is located in an area that is friendly and safe. The interior is simple and nice. The fair price means fair service, fair room and fair bathroom. Wi-Fi is less than fair. The best point, after sleeping, you will have more money to enjoy the town.

This was by far one of the best places where i stayed. Whenever i need to go to porto for a trip, i always stay at Monte Carlo. Central part, wifi, great bathroom, and a great room. Definitely compared to a 5star hotel when it comes to comfort.

The area around the hotel is unprepossessing but friendly and safe. The interior of the guest housel has been nicely restored recently. There is no reception service as such but ringing the bell brings a member of staff quickly. Our room was small and basic but perfectly clean and adequate. The metro station is a fifty metre walk away but... More

We booked a triple room with bath online here for a very reasonable EUR 35 per night. The residence is located in a somewhat run-down (but safe) neighborhood north of Campo 24 Agosto. While the exterior is unimpressive, the interior is very nice, featuring marble walls and vaulted ceilings, though it was a bit dark. When we arrived, it took... More
