I stayed here for 5 days in March. Here's a link to my Porto Trip Report: https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g189180-i598-k9362147-Trip_Report_Porto_5_Days_In_March-Porto_Porto_District_Northern_Portugal.html First of all, this Hotel is situated half-way up a fairly steep hill which I found challenging. This may be a consideration if you have any mobility problems. Check-in was quick and easy and I made my way to my 2nd floor room... More

The positives to this property are that it has a really good location just up from the Bolhao market and walkable from Sao Bente station, if you're not weighed down with too much luggage. It's also a good price. The staff are very friendly but spoke little English, but that wasn't too much of a problem. Gaining access/ leaving can... More

For the price, it was very good and as you would expect in this pricerange. It has a central location and is easy to get to from Porto airport (Metro to Bolhao station). The staff was sweet but not very good at english.

Even though it was a cheap hotel, we were really surprised about everything: the room was clean, quite big, comfortable. The breakfast was included and excellent. The staff was really nice. The wifi was very fast and worked well in our room. Everything to see in Porto was at a walking distance.

I think they put linoleum on top of the previous carpeting. The w/c was so small you had to turn sideways to close the door. The bathtub was in the main room. The neighbor's balcony was right outside the window, which you couldn't lock, so we had to keep the security shutters closed for noise and safety. Great location, close... More

The cost for what we got was excellent. Staff was really great and helpful, room was nicely arranged and clean. Easy access by car or train, not hard to park on surrounding streets on weekends. Breakfast is good for the price.

Personnel hardly spoke any English, so communication was unproductive. Room was nice and clean. Although it did not seem like it, the place is positioned at a busy street with a lot of traffic during the night, it was impossible to sleep.

The hotel is at walking distance from all the highlights. The room was nice with a very small balcony. The bathroom was old, but clean. We had breakfast for 3,50 p.p. It was OK, but you can also choose to have breakfast around the corner. There is the main shopping street of porto. Here was also the pick up for... More

We were extremely happy with our recent stay at Residencial Santa Clara. The staff were very friendly and willing to help - they let us store food and drink in their fridge, use the internet and printer for free and tried their best to help with any info required. The location is great, five minutes walk to Bolhao metro station... More
