Worst hotel experience ever, the place is filled with mug and rotten humidity and the rotten smell kills, right after we arrive we new we could stay because the smell of humidity was so heavy that its was difficult to breathe... We try to cancel the booking by paying only that night and leave but they wanted to charge us the full 3 nights even though we agreed to pay that night.. And just let us leave the place for healthy reasons... We could eve talk the receptionist flipped out screaming so aggressively, she was so rude and aggressive, that it was impossible to have a conversation with her. It's was a nightmare so so bad the service the place the smell was soo so bad. I don't wish anyone to stay in a place like that, it's not worth it and unhealthy. Believe me the smell of humidity mug was brutal. Nevertheless each time we used the sick the water would go out from below it was horrible, wost place I ever been. …
Rudest hotel front desk ever! They cursed, harassed and even locked down the guests because of the nonsense overnight charges. I saw this video on youtube that the hotel front desk locked down the entrance of the Taiwanese blogger and threatened them to pay for the overnight guest fee that the person didn't even stay! One of the guys in their group came early with the girls to help them drop luggage and left afterwords because the front desk called them to ask him to leave. Then they ask if he can just stayed outside the room, so they won't be charged for the fee and the front desk said yes. The guy left after and stayed at another hotel which he had the receipt. However, the next day morning when they are checking out, the front desk gave them attitude, cursed at them, locked down the lobby and tried to take away the phone that they are recording the video. They were trying to catch a flight but they won't listen. The police came after and see the evidence of that receipt but still urge them to pay the fee and delete the video which is unfair and injustice. This hotel is a nightmare for all tourists. Stay in another bigger brand, better rating hotels if you don't want to get locked down and yelled by a FG!!!…
The Peninsular must have been a splendid hotel when it first opened. While it has lost some of its lustre, it has a pleasant retro feel that was appealing to us. The rooms are a good size with everything functional. The breakfast spread is nice and the staff is very friendly. Given the price and the location, this place is tough to beat provided that you are willing to accept that it’s ripe for a major renovation.
Its proximity to Sao Bento is the primary factor I chose Peninsular. Not only it is value for money on my part, it is in the heart of Porto so whenever I was near, after walking around town, I dropped by my souvenirs or changed my shirt. Clean and serving breakfast, it's open anytime of the day, with pleasing and friendly personnel. Wi-Fi was super fast. As I was leaving for Lisbon early, I requested the reception at night for an early breakfast the next day, which they served before I left. The staff were friendly and helpful. I always felt something will appear and scare me in the dark hall. Every time I wait for the lift to open, the hair on the back of my neck seemed to stand up. It won"t be spooky if the halls have light sensors (instead of the press button). I liked the room in which I was assigned to. On the third floor, facing the grandly illuminated building across the street. I tried to open the window at night but i couldn't bear the cold. The street noise was gone past midnight, so i wasn't bothered by the flow of traffic below. I'd like to come back someday.…
