We drove from the Algarve to Porto,about 350 miles,on the Motorway.So tolls payable,but much less traffic. God bless sat-nav.It took us straight to the Hotel.Traffic very busy,but found an underground car park just around the corner. The Hotel,much like the surrounding area,has a lot of charm ,albeit with a fading grandeur. We wanted to be close to the Sao Bento... More

This hotel is very near the Sao Bento station and metro. The hotel is quiet, clean and has beautiful old decorations, you could be in the 1920. For the price we paid the breakfast was very reasonable and the room with bathroom adequate. The staff was friendly and helpful .Only one pity no English TV station! We very much enjoyed... More

Low budget is what you book and what you will get. The breakfast in the mornings was very basic but filling. No warm breakfast. I found it a bit boring after 6 days. The room was clean but very old. The bathrooms are in very old condition. The worst was the mattress. I am aware that you get what you... More

I stayed in the infamous fifth floor, which is the low cost section of the hotel (the rest looked better) The room had a good price, so I wasn't expecting luxury and in fact you get a small and basic (but resonably clean) room with a shared bathroom (which needs some refurbishment). It could have been ok for the price,... More

Very conveniently located near the Sao Benito train station and the city. Quiet, clean, and reasonably priced. The personnel helped get us a taxi to the metro station as we left. The breakfast is well-provisioned and is served in a beautifully-tiled dining room.

Room dirty, old and everything broken. A lot of problems about the reservations, charging the credit card even if I say expressly not to do. Even they threatened to call the police and throw me away when I asked about the Complaining Book. I could do this only at the check out. Really the worst experience ever. I don't recommend,...

We stayed twice, in a total of 3 different rooms. Cleanliness is questionable, the floors are wonky, the carpets are threadbare and all 3 bathrooms stank. The only place you can get wifi is in the dark and dingy 'bar' area, and you can't buy anything by the glass in the bar, you wouldn't know it was a bar if... More

We last stayed here 9 years ago and nothing has changed except our tastes and expectations. The hotel certainly hasn't. First, the good points. Location! However, we did pay extra for a ' deluxe 'room where the beds were large and comfy, a roomy bathroom with timed lighting and toiletries. I appreciate they wish to retain olde worldly charm BUT...

Room tired, dirty, dusty, sad, needs a lot of attention, just terrible. Location is the only plus. There are plenty of hotels much cheaper and so much better could not recommend this hotel ever.internet only in a common room!
