I liked this family owned hotel since I got a very good vibe from them and they were interested in helping me with where to eat, maps, etc. A very nice portuguese family who likes service and people. My room was clean and equipped with AC as expected. Location is 25 min walk to downtown/uber for almost no money. Area... More

This quaint B&B is perfectly situated to reach all attractions. 15 mins bus ride into Porto centre and the river Douro and a mere 30mins to the nearest beach. Bus stops are within 5 minutes of the residence and all busses have electronic signs telling you the name of each stop so brilliant for the non bus travellers like us,... More

Clean and nice hostel to stay a few nigths. Jose and his son were really friendly and tried to be helpful. I like heating in the room, especially during the cold nights, and quiet around the hostel. Ufortunately the hostel is pretty far away from metro station. Moreover communication was hard beacause we don't know spanish and Jose doesn't know... More

Great Hotel, Jose the owners father is very helpful and wanted to teach us the portugese for handy terms they gave us a map of local sites and how to get to and from the hotel using public transport. The room was clean and warm with free wifi. They were very security conscious perhaps a little too so. Would recommend... More

This residence- hotel was 10 min walk to Metro station and Bus stop. A neat and clean residence and hospitality at Budget Price. You can find some Bakeries and Restaurants in closed Locations. You may enjoy your stay likes a home with limited guests.

We stayed 3 nights on 3rd floor in large, well-furnished, clean room. Jose & his son are very helpful, despite language difficulties, & operate a 24 hour door service for security. We felt that a modern card-key system, or even just supply of front door keys would have been far less troublesome. Good recommendations for very cheap & cheerful local... More

Room was very clean and comfortable to stay. Wifi was fast enough. Location is a bit far from a center of old town. Please note that when I stayed this hotel, an owner didn't accept me to pay a fee with a credit card.

My husband and I stayed for two nights and very much enjoyed our stay. Our room was on the third floor and was not small. Reading some reviews below my only comment is stop complaining. If you have the need for elegance and have the money for this; go down town. This is a small family run business. Jose is... More

The receptionist (Jose) was very friendly. He tried his best to explain us everything in a bit of Spanish and Portugese, but he didn't know any English. The room was a bit tight and small, but it was okay for its price. It's a 20 minute walk from the centre of Porto, but there's a bus stop very near. I... More
