Receptionist extremely helpful. Breakfast was good.Room was a good size, but needed to be updated as beds were hard and squeaky. Shower was awful. It was close to the metro and 15 minute walk to the River. It was right in the heart of the shopping mall.

We found the hotel easily enough and then tried to park in their car park . Most ( in our experience ) are tricky on the continent but this is a dandy . If your car is larger than a fiesta forget it even then think twice the multicoloured wall stripes tell many a tale of woe. The hotel though... More

Good hotel, comfortable rooms, can easy walk to centre and the river. Parking downstairs is quite small. Take care. They have a 2nd parking somewhere for bigger cars. Staff is friendly and very helpful.

The hotel is dated but that suited us. Breakfast was OK but was lacking a hot dish or two. The location is excellent for shopping and the Bus/Metro. Our room had a balcony so the fresh air was wonderful for sleeping. The street is very busy but with the windows closed it is sound proof.The shopping centre has great little... More

This hotel is very far from what the pictures shows. The rooms are very old, the bathrooms old and dirty, the bed is horrible, unconfortable pillows. The service, at least, is kind, they changed our first room, but it does not solve the problem of the bad rooms. Breakfast ok.

The location was the only problem with this place. It is a 20 minute walk to the Douro and the waterfront. Not a terribly long way from the centre of the city but a little further out than some might want. Very friendly service, clean rooms, decent breakfast, nice bar.

Hotel San Jose is well located in the heart of the city-centre with a bustling shopping district and metro station 1 min away. People travelling via train from Lisbon can arrive here seamlessly through the metro post a short ride. There are plentiful food and shopping options - the river is a 15 min walk away and the main square... More

I spent a week at the Sao Jose hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful if somewhat limited in English. It was an easy pickup for tours and always a downhill walk to the historical areas with just a few dollars for a taxi back. The shopping area is only a few blocks away as is the big Mercado... More

Excellent budget hotel in the heart of Porto's shopping district. Easy access to metro and a nice 20 minute walk to the Waterfront. Very painless check in and out. All amenities including free WIFI worked a treat. Breakfast was a simple tasty affair with plenty of fresh bread and fruit, I even liked the coffee!! Our room was simply furnished... More
