I enjoyed my stay here. The room was clean, comfortable and a short walk from the Metro. I was able to receive wifi in the room. When I went on a day trip, they provided the best early breakfast they could. They were extremely helpful with advice and helped me figure out how to change my train reservation. Would stay... More

I was here for a 3-day break to take some photos and meet an acquaintance. As someone who loves walking - with and without a camera - around cities, I think that the location was perfect. Around you is real life, not bars devoted to charter tour groups. There are several local restaurants right nearby that give you a taste... More

Like this hotel for location (away from hords of tourists and where river and ocean meet), service, roof top bar/pool, and water views. Breakfast included (better than average/almost same every morning). Front deak staff very helpful and grocery store near. Excellent access to town+ using Bus 500. Weakest score would be for bedding. Would certainly return as long as I... More

Good Afternoon, We would like to inform you that your review (although very good) is not for our hotel... We are Boavista Guest House and not Hotel Boa-Vista. We are located in the city center, so unfortunatly, no ocean view... :) We are glad you liked our beautiful Porto. Best Regards More

We only stayed for one night and arrived late so we literally only slept here, room was small and basic but clean and the bathroom had a good shower. Few mins walk to the metro which will have you in the centre in 5-10 mins, nice little area seemed nice and safe, they held our bags whilst we explored the... More

This was one of the better hostels, but was still very cold because in Portugal most houses don't have room heating. I did enjoy the place though. The staff are nice and will guide you well, but they are not necessarily very helpful when it comes to changing the bed.

Hotel staff very friendly, room clean, Internet not good in room but in lounge or terrace areas very good. Easy access to all sights. Porto is very nice enjoyed our 2 days there. Bars and restuarants are very good. Lots of places where you can enjoy the local tipple of Port

An average facility bot the location + the staff's friendliness and will to assist us in every aspect is very well worth it! True: the facility is not spacious but being surrounded by cute little pastry+coffee shops, a 15 minutes walk from the center of the city was just what we needed
