This modern hotel is located in a restored theater and is decorated with photos of old movie actors. It is sort of spooky to wake up to a live size photo of Joan Crawford. Several cafes across the street offer good coffee, lunch and dinner. Walk every where from here. Staff was very helpful

Thank you very much for posting your comments on TripAdvisor.
We hope that after a good rest at your comfortable bed you did not started your day frightened by the harmless Joan Crawford ;)
We hope that you've enjoyed Oporto and look forward to welcoming you again soon, here or our new hotel in the center of the UNESCO city of Évora (later on this 2013).
Best regards,

My husband and I stayed at Hotel B&B Porto Centro for 2 nights in March and we really think it was a bargain!! If you arrive at Porto by train and walk up to the hotel, you may feel a little worried about the hill you have to climb to get there. However, you will soon realize that Porto is all about hills and this is why they have lovely trams, cable car, and funicular. It’s probably a good idea to buy a city pass with unlimited access to all these transportations.

Our room was very quiet, clean, and looked brand new. It wasn’t large, but it was comfortable. Wifi worked quite well. Front desk gave us nice tips on restaurants, and breakfast was good.

I certainly recommend this hotel!

Dear AndreaSP,
Thank you very much for posting your comments on TripAdvisor.
For you description on the lovely Porto's hills, you seem to have pointed out that Porto is a great place for a very romantic city break, isn't it?
We hope that you've enjoyed our city as you seem to have enjoyed your stay with us.
We hope to be able to host you and your family and friends again soon! Please accept our invitation and search for Évora, a city classified as UNESCO heritage and where this Summer we will open a new property.
Kind regards,

Can't believe how nice this place was compared to the price paid. The value alone earns it this rating.

Hotel is brand new. Everything is modern and clean. Rooms were on the small side.

Not a lot of amenities, but I liked how "green" this hotel is. Very little waste.

Location is very good. Everything is within walking distance. Metro/train station just down the street (1 block away).

Breakfast, although convenient, is not very substantial. Skip it if you’re looking for a real hot breakfast.

The hotel is fine, clean and organized, modern and cool style. People at the desk are very friendly. It is right in the centre of the city. Rooms are quite "spartan", maybe too much. No wardrobe (just a small open one), no drawers ... The worst: the parking. It should be prohibited. You cannot park in the street, so you have only one chance: the hotel 7 euros/day parking. The entrance is so small that a car hardly gets in. And then you run into an impossible ramp. Cars left wildly out of the entrance make things even more difficult. I cannot believe this is legal in terms of standard norms. So a pretty good minimalistic hotel, but they have to solve the parking issue!

we stayed as Room only as this suited us, we found the hotel with ease from Soa Bento station, which we got the metro from the Airport on the metro. The Hotel is situated in a main square with a few bars and restaurants nearby, however it is located at the stat of one massive shopping street, for all of you shoppers. Also it is next to a bus stop that is also a Tram stop and a stop for all 3 of the tourist bus routes in Porto. The rooms are spacious and modern, and the hotel does it bit for the environment too with lightening sensors everywhere. Staff were helpful and knowledable

Dear cazash,
Thank you for posting your comments, and especially for enhancing our location, price and our energy efficiency! We really take great pride on that feature! In fact, many of the B&B hotels have already been awarded the Clef Verte (or “green key”) showing our commitment with the environment.
We look forward to welcome you again, here or in Evora, where we will open a new hotel this Summer!

Up a steep street from Sao Bento station and metro sits B&B hotel at a small square with trams and other hotels and a good sprinkling of eateries. At €46 it is excellent value with very modern and clean fittings, comfy bed, great bathroom and reasonable wifi if you use it at 5am.

The front desk service is helpful. It is unfortunately very popular so we were able to only get one night (we were walk-ups).
The front entrance is "home" for many homeless with the accompanying begging can be a little disconcerting at first.

Dear OzGronk,
Thank you for taking the time to review us.
We regret to learn that you experienced some unusual problems with wi-fi coverage. And of course we regret that you could not stay with us any longer but I guess being proud of such demand is not a bad thing, right? :)
Also it is never too much to reinforce that although some street-sleepers may exist, unfortunately as in every city.center, the square is 100% secure.
We hope that you have enjoyed our city, in which we take great pride and hope to be able to host you again. This Summer we open in the city center of Evora, also classified as World Heritage by the UNESCO!
Best regards,

This is a lovely clean modern place. The service is very good. It is centrally located for visiting the city ! Our room was facing the front with a lovely view of the church. Excellent value for money. We would return.

Room Tip: Second floor overlooking the front with balcony was very nice.
