Excellent breakfast. Helpful and friendly staff who speak good English. Very good value for money hotel. Spotlessly clean. Comfortable and quiet. Well fitted bathroom with toileteries. Quite close to metro station and easy to find.
The location is a 20 minutes walk away from the center in a less attractive area but I encountered no problems. I would certainly return here on a future visit to Popto.

Room Tip: My room was at the back and was very quiet but I don't think street noise is likely to be a prob...

with the excellent breakfast in the smart, if window-less, basement of this hotel. We had a large room with balcony but awful weather so no use ! The staff were very attentive.
Some people might prefer to stay nearer to the city centre as the area is run down and not pleasant to walk around.
Room 601 has the lift mechanism outside which was rather noisy and no bedside light.
But when we got soaked, the staff were kind enough to provide a heater without being asked so that we could dry our clothes.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front are on a busy road. Rooms at the back overlook the fire-escape. 601 is spacious...

...and you want value for money, think about Hotel Século. Ok, when you arrive by metro and start your descent on Rua Sta Catarina you may wonder why several houses need a serious make over, but when you arrive you will find a decent hotel for a fair price. Nice rooms, good breakfast and good working wifi. And as for the area, well, no problem, that can only get better over time.

Judging by the ratings given by other guests, I had very high expectations of this two-star about a half hour's walk from Porto's centre. What I found was very clean and relatively comfortable and reasonable, but not exceptionally spectacular. Room was clean and furnished adequately, breakfast was continental, service was friendly. Free parking area has some of the tightest spots in recorded human history. Neighborhood is not fantastic. Still the rates are good. It is perhaps closer to a good 3 star than anything more.

We recently spent two nights at this small hotel on Santa Catarina , very close to the main attractions in Porto. It's at the upper end of the street and the area is run down but we felt safe. We walked to everything we wanted to see , including the waterfront. the staff were very helpful , the breakfast was one of the better ones we had over the two weeks we spent in Portugal, the room was clean and spacious. the parking is a bit tricky but I hear they will park your car for you if you ask. Great value for a city hotel.

Room Tip: we did have a back room which was very quiet. the street facing rooms could be noisy.

The hotel is situated on a main street running down into Porto centre, in a rather run-down area, although near to a metro stop. Despite the surroundings the hotel is welcoming, very clean and with spacious rooms. Our bathroom had a bath with a shower over it. Solid double glazed windows mean quiet rooms. All very comfortable and wi-fi free with code from reception. Laundry service available.
Grey colour scheme in breakfast room was attractive with average continental breakfast and varied cakes.
There is a car park adjacent to the hotel, tight spaces but several free when we stayed in April. Helpful reception staff who provided us with maps and details of metro back to hotel.
Comfortable feel and good value for such a well cared for hotel.

Room Tip: We were lucky to have a large room with double bed and an additional single. Upper rooms further awa...
