We recently stayed at Porta Marina Hotel. To our surprise, we were upgraded to a suite, which included a separate bedroom, a living room with sleeper sofa, a big table, wi-fi, microwave, small fridge and a cooktop. The room was very nice and the hotel was very clean. Despite the availability of cooking facilities, they did not provide cookware and do not permit cooking. We did use the microwave for heating. The bed was very firm, but not uncomfortable. The desk staff was very helpful by providing directions, arranging taxis and selling discounted tickets for the Red Double Decker Tour bus. The bus tour is a great way to get an overview of the city, with the ability to hop on and off at various sites. The hotel is a five minute walk from to the red or yellow metro line, giving quick access to the entire city.
As for other posts about the noise from adjacent student housing, we heard very little noise and our room even faced the residence hall. Our son is living in the residence hall during his study abroad. The hotel was very convenient while we visited him. We would highly recommend this hotel to other parents of students.
Our stay was very comfortable. In fact, we stayed for one weekend, left town during the school week, and returned to the hotel the following weekend.More
