We were couple travelling around Portugal at the end of October spending one night in Hotel Paulista. We were offered really small room of quite used shape and incredibly small double bed. It was clean, anyway. Unfortunately on the floor above us there was a party all night long and the poorly English speaking (euphemism) staff was not able to... More

Listen to the reviews: Don't stay here! The hotel looks very shady and not at all inviting. The toilet seat was broken, there were no toiletries in the bathroom besides the classic soap. We could barely sleep at night: for one the vent from the air conditioning from another room was on our balcony and it worked the entire night;... More

Stayed here for 4 nights on the 4th floor and it's difficult to find anything negative to say. Yes, it's a budget hotel and doesn't pretend to be anything else. But for £25 a night (not including breakfast) for an clean & comfortable double ensuite room right in the middle of a city, what else could you ask for? And... More

We arrived before check-in time and they stored our luggage. When we returned at 2pm, we checked in. Room was good size and everything worked. Arranged for breakfast next day. Warm coffee and a bun, don't bother. Lovely cafeteria style spots very close by. Small elevator worked great. This is a must as I age. Outside noise from busy area,... More

This is an old hotel with very basic facilities but it is superbly located right in the centre of Porto. Rooms at the front of the hotel are very noisy with traffic noise right through the night. The rooms are quite small and basic but are clean and the showers/plumbing worked fine. Beds are not very comfortable but this is... More

It is an old, fifty years old hotel with a magnific location. The rooms were unacceptable: there was no renovation lately, the walls, the curtains, the bad, the matrasse, everything was old and unacceptable. Such an environment is a punishment for a tourist, there is no feeling of home and comfort. The bathroom was clean, but it smelled a little... More

A lovely two star hotel, with character, a wonderful laundry service and great location until it double billed my credit card. VISA removed one bill but not the other; also cheated on bus shuttle fee.

The hotel is in the centre of Porto, so the position is strategic; nonetheless, the rooms are really small (we didn't have the place for our luggages neither), and on the whole it seems like it's falling to pieces: the wc is made of plastic, the window at a certain point broke. Barely sufficient

I went as part of a stag do and couldn't believe how reasonable the hotel was. For the price you would forgive any issues but we really didn't find any. The rooms has TV, air conditioning, were clean and perfectly adequate for a few nights stay. Straight outside the hotel you are perfectly placed to explore the city but far... More
