I'll keep this brief.... Pluses: Pretty cheap for an Ensure room, quite close to sao bento and the main areas, quiet street, clean enough. Negatives: WiFi did not work on my floor (I believe this was an ongoing issue as the night worker told me "sometimes if you connect down here then go up it will carry on.") I requested... More

The place was ok for the price we pay. It was not luxury or super comfortable but it was descent. Close to the city center. Nice view from the balcony and more or less nice service. The elevator was probably 2 hundred years old but it works. Only thing missing is a staff talking in english.

We stayed there for just one night but it was sufficient to experience one of the wrost nights ever. The room was ok, a small window, a shower, the location was good but... the room was riddled with bed bugs, some small some big, but big enough to suck our blood. We've raised the issue with the receptionist to which... More

Our bathroom was not clean, there where hairs everywhere. The room was so small that we could barely move around the bed and had no window! It says it has free wi-fi, but we where the first room right after the router and we had no signal in the room, we had to go to the stairs in order to... More

Reasonable distance from Bolhão metro station (10 minutes walk). Supermarket is not too far away. Walking distance to many places, very walkable city! There's an elevator! Most staff, except for the younger man who was there when I checked in, does not speak English. So hopefully you know more Portugese than I do. However, if you speak Spanish then that... More

Very inexpensive, small and unpretentious yet very clean rooms, good location, friendly receptionists. Basic Portuguese vocabulary knowlwdge will help as they don't speak English. It was a bit cold inside our room on the 4th floor.

It's located a block from the long distance bus terminal and close to most attractions in the City, so it is a perfect place for an overnight or a short stay. However, everything else is just basic .... or even below basic. During our stay, the temperature dropped below 10C or 50F, but the place does not have heating (I... More

It is located in the center of the city, very close to all top attractions. Hosts do not speak English, which is not so good, except one receptionist, but they are all very nice. It is really cheap, so you can not expect a miracle :), for that money it is a paradise. They clean the room every day which... More

The location is very good. The maid cleans the room every day and brings you fresh towels. I have to say that the walls are very thin so you can hear really everything (from your neighbours to running water), the beds were unstable and squeaky but the personel was friendly and altough they were speaking only portuguese we got the...

Came here with my friend to spend 2 nights which was fine. The price is ok, we paid 30,- per night for a double bed, bathroom and balcony with view on the river. The staff is lovely but has difficulty with English,but you'll be fine, and the bed comfortable enough. If you want to take a shower you'll have to... More
