“Very good stay - Excellent Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2011

We had a great long weekend stay at Sol da Nave. It is an old town house. From the outside it doesn't look that good, but it is really nice from the inside, and a very good breakfast.

The room is in a good size (for 3 persons) and clean, with a tacky/kitsch decoration. There's free wifi.

Joao, the owner, is a typical Portuguese, a great guy and helps on whatever he can. Since I am Brazilian, I can't give any opinion on his english.

The breakfast is really good, and served every morning by the omnipresent Joao. There's a parking lot right in front of the hotel (ask Joao for the voucher), a bus stop also right next door, and a subway stop about a 5-10 minute walk (Marques), making the way to downtown easy and affordable (about a 30 min walk, 10 min subway or 5 min drive).

The restaurant right next corner recommended by Joao (Chamico) had a great Francesinha.

For EUR 40 a night (3 persons!) including breakfast, it is definitely a bargain!

Would definitely stay there again!

In a nutshell: remarkable value: good location, free parking in garage across the street, breakfast included and free wi-fi. Friendly owner. This for less than 40,-€ a night.

What a find... doesn't look like much from the outside being on a rather busy street. The tiny "reception" desk is right at the door step. The pensao is a former town house which is easily noticed once you step into the main staircase in the middle of the house. No elevator, but only 2 stories and very helpful staff make up for that.

This place does not have many rooms, but they are all rather big, freshly renovated with high ceilings, modern bathrooms and some Ikea furnishing. No carpet floors in the room.

Location is great: the bus stop is right in front of the hotel which takes you directly to the riverfront. The Metro station is 5-10 Minutes by foot. Or you can walk the entire way to the riverfront in 20-30 Minutes. During the day the street is rather busy, but quite quiet at night time. Didn't have a problem of sleeping after walking through Porto the entire day. You can hear people when they are walking and talking through the staircase since it is directly connected to the room, but not much of a problem either.

Parking garage is right across the street. I would advise to park there for unloading the luggage and walking over the street. Tell the guy in the garage that you are staying across the street and you will bring him a voucher later. Wi-Fi is available for free - make sure to get the passkey at check-in. Breakfast is included - as usual in Portugal not much to speak of. Basically Coffee, Tea, Croissants, some fruits, yoghurt drinks and the usual fake ham and cheese slices.

The owner is a gem. His English could be better, but so could my Portuguese. He is extremely friendly and helpful. Would come back here anytime.
