First let me comment how lovely the staff are. I caught a Madrid bus which came in at 5 ( I thought 6). I didn't approach the hotel until 7 ( I thought 8), so they could hold my bags. Now they went above the call of duty and let me have a room so I could have a shower... More

Clean room, wi-fi, simple breakfast but very helpfull and lovely stuff. About location: not in historic Portu, but very close. I prefer walking and getting down to centre took me about 15min. (just straight down the street).Metro station is 5min away and Bus Stop (to Matosinhos beach - 30min ride) is just around the corner. Basic breakfast (like everywhere around... More

This is a small family run basic hotel which we found to be very clean, and welcoming by the staff. The hotel is tucked down a side street about five minutes from the metro line near the stop known as Marques, this is the line that goes directly to and over the river Douro (yellow line d) so very easy...

Positives: lovely, helpful staff. Spacious, clean rooms. Secure parking in the basement of the hotel. Good value. Things to consider: it's a 2-star hotel. So not fancy, and breakfast is fairly simple. It's a short metro ride to the centre of town, but rather few restaurants and places to eat within walking distance.

It was very nice hotel. Very friendly staff and very good service. It's relatively close to the historic area of the city as well. It is also very easily accessed through public transportation which is a blessing.

Good location and good service. Nice two stars hotel, friendly and Nice Staff. Near the metro station "Marques". The room and bathroom are simple but clean. Ideal for people who want to stay all day discovering the city and in the evening return to a Nice and familíar hotel.

I stayed there for 8 nights with my friend. The price is amazingly low and the staffs are extremly friendly! It has a pretty good location, though we did not know it when we arrived, just 5 mins away from the metro Marquês and we only took 15 minutes from hotel walking down to the main pedestrian street! it's a...
