“Boavista Guest House review”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

I really enjoyed my stay. The hotel is small , clean and cosy. Excellent value for money .The room was a bit small but very comfortable. The breakfast menu was simple but fulfilling. The staff was extremely helpful , speaking fluently english, I had not problem connecting to the internet or using any of the facilities. If you are looking for a reasonably priced accomodation close to the Rue de Boavista this guest house is ideal. It is also close to train station and bus stops. A/C was working nicely as well
Overall if you are looking for a cheap but good quality hotel for a short stay this is ideal.

It was nice enough for my purposes, but there was nothing fancy. I couldn't connect to the wireless internet while I was there, which was disappointing. The staff were nice. It was within walking distance of some of the popular attractions. In general, you can get around Porto by walking pretty easily.

Firstly the hotel was not clearly marked as 'Cesar Residencial' but 'Boavista hotel'. Residencial was written on the front step only. We took ages trying to find it. We paid for the room with the breakfast brought up in the morning (Romantic package) but realised the room was too small for this. I was very disappointed with the room - small, the bed was smaller than a normal sized double and really uncomfortable and creaky. The toilet didn't work properly and the shower was hand held - not relaxing at all. The toilet was practically next to the bed so killed the romance a bit! The TV was in an annoying position almost on the floor. My partner was pissed off with the church bell ringing next door (for 5mins) early in the morning but i didn't mind that. We didn't spend much time in the room but stayed the week we paid for only cos we were too lazy to book into another place and better the devil you know! On a brighter note the girls working there are lovely and helpful with info on the city. All spoke moderate english. The breakfast was ok but the exact same everyday but was fine for one morning. The hotel is a short walk from the metro Carolina Michaelis - only 2 stops away from Trindade, city centre. Metro easy to go to Povoa de Varzim (Coast). V. Efficient and cheap. The restaurant next to the hotel is very nice and very popular with the locals, no english menu but that was half the fun! Also nice little coffee place near the hotel called Bella Vista where we opted for breakfast. I wouldn't stay here again but it could have been worse. If you're on a budget its grand and I suppose you get what you pay for here. Hope this helps!
