“4 star hotel at 2 star price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

This hotel is lovely and modern inside and extremely good value for money at 42 euros a night. The reception staff are really helpful and the location is very central, we walked everywhere from the hotel. The only disadvantage is no hairdryer in the room, if you want one, ask at reception when you arrive to ensure you get it! The best value for money hotel I have ever stayed at.

Dear bam4d,

Thank you very much for posting your comments on TripAdvisor. It is always very rewarding to receive such nice comments.
The central location of the hotel, within walking distance from all the major highlights, is indeed very good. We're very happy that with our staff's help, you were able to still enjoy the city so much.
Regarding the hairdryer, it is true that the rooms do not have one but we have a lot of those in the Reception to borrow.
We could not agree more about the value for money!
We hope to be able to host you again soon.
Best regards,

Long story short - it's worth every single penny!

PROS: B&B Porto Centro is very reasonably priced, located in the excellent spot and for the small amount of money you get much more than you expect! Crew is friendly, rooms are clean, beds are comfy.

CONS: I wish that I could communicate with the maids, but they were not english speaking. Nevertheless they were always smiled :)

I would love to come back again!

Dear MarcinSteuer,
Thank you for taking the time to write about your stay at Hotel B&B Porto Centro.
We are very glad you enjoyed our hotel so much and that we succeeded in making your stay so pleasant. The hotel is indeed very well situated right in the heart of the city centre and offer great rates.
We are very sorry to learn that you had some difficulties in interacting with our Housekeeping team. Some of them are in fact non-portuguese and speak a good English. We're sorry this was inconvenient. So, whenever you come to visit us again, I'm sure you'll be very positively surprised.
Best regards,

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights in December 2012 (Our party consisted of two couples). Having booked online, we got a great rate of EUR 42 per night per room - very, very reasonable for the standard of hotel and location. As others have said, being right on Praca da Batalha we were were able to walk to most spots around Porto.

Check-in was not the quickest, but service in general was very good. The rooms were basic, clean and decently-sized for the price. Free WiFi, adequate toiletries, satellite TV.

As expected, the hotel and most of Porto was very quiet for the two days we were there (24th, 25th December). It was huge plus that the hotel lounge was open on both nights till midnight (1 euro for a lager!) and were also given glasses for the wine we had brought.

Overall, this is a fantastic hotel for the price and I would definitely stay there

Dear vikramvasu,
We are always very pleased to receive such positive comments on our guests' experiences.
We are delighted to learn that your stay with us during Christmas time was so rewarding and that we were able to surprise you in such a positive way.
The hotel is indeed very well situated right in the heart of the city centre. Our rooms offer a comfortable bed and pillows, free and unlimited Wi-Fi, a plasma screen with 70 channels, an office area with telephone, air conditioning and soundproofing. A double room has around 15m2. Our lounge area is also very comfortable and the receptions works 24h.
We just regret to hear that your check-in was a little bit long. We're sorry for this. Please, next time you come to visit us, do not hesitate to inform us of any inconveniences, so we can try and do our best to make your stay as pleasant as it should be.

Great hotel, cheap prices and clean rooms. The only draw back is that the location is sooo central that there are lots of drunks in the area and you have to be a little careful late at night. Not the hotels fault but it is info you should be aware of. If you want a really nice breakfast you can have it in the hotel though me and my wife found a nice bar just down the road called Marbella, very cheap and great selection of Portuguese pastries at a fraction of the price, both of us for less than 5 euros vs 5.95 at the hotel.

Room Tip: 204 is a very good room, only one side has a room next to it, it faces the patio not the exterior wi...

Dear Adrian R,
Thank you for taking the time to write about your stay at Hotel B&B Porto Centro.
We regret to hear that you've found some drunk people on the surroundings. Unfortunately, as you've said, we cannot control that and are indeed very sorry, especially when our guests found it inconvenient. As you've said, it might be one of the contingencies of being so well situated right in the city centre. However, you should agree that the area is very secure.
Nonetheless, we are very glad you enjoyed our hotel. We recommend our guests to pay the non-included breakfast (a fair offer of bread, juices, fruit, ham, cheese, pastries, etc) if enjoying leaving the hotel with a complete meal.
We look forward to your next visit.
Best regards,

This hotel is very-well located and extremely well-priced. It would be difficult to find anywhere in Europe such great accommodation for these prices.

Staff are friendly even if check-in took quite a long time.

I do not recommend breakfast. For the Euro5 they charge for their breakfast you can eat much better in the many nearby cafes.

Hotel decor is great and very tasteful.

Would definitely stay again at Hotel B&B Porto Centro. Best value for money in any hotel I have ever stayed

Dear FLondonUK,
We are very pleased to receive such positive comments.
You should know that B&B hotels are all over Europe with 300 hotels. B&B is clearly positioned at the budget segment so you will find the same comfort at the same price range.
We apologize for the delay on your check-in, but hope it won't prevent you from visiting us again soon.
We look forward to seeing you again in a not too distant future.

I stayed two nights at this hotel. Good price. Very good location. Free Wi-Fi. Close to the main bus station (and the new metro lines). You can walk to many places downtown easily. Friendly staff. The room was comfortable and clean. We didn't had breakfast because there are wonderful places around the corner much more cheaper (try Império pastry shop in Rua Santa Catarina).
The water on the floor after showering was not ok.

B&B Hotel was very new & clean. Good contempory design. No frills, ie: no facial tissues, hair dryer & or hot water kettle in room, but for that modest price, I wasn't disappointed! Convient central location, & helpful staff.
