    Very helpful staff, the rooms were clean, free wifi near to the reception, location was close to the centre of Porto and the prices were very competative.

    The breakfast was basic but ok, the lift was very noisey and it could keep you awake if your a light sleeper and the nearest metro was a 10 minute walk.

  • Couple
    10.0

    The hotel was very clean. The staff was very helpful, they all speak English. It is 15 min walking to the centre and taxi costs about 3 euros during the day and 6 euros during the night.

    Close to the metropolitane line, very kind staff, good breakfast.

  • Couple

    Helpful and kind staff, clean room, close to metro station

    All day noise from the busy street. Old building and furnishing (but that's Porto's style). Low quality breakfast, without many choices but good enough for the money we paid.

  • Couple

    Staff was 10+, breakfast was good, room was small but nice and very clean, 5 min walk to the metro

  • Group of friends

    Very nice and friendly staff, great price and location.

    The heating was broken... It was the coldest night in my life...

    Parking is a nightmare, under the hotel and very small.

  • Single
    8.2

    excellent staff, clean room, decently furnished, resonable distance to city centre

    poor sound insulation, you can hear the elevator each time it moves

  • Group of friends

    really nice place with friendly staff and good equipped and clean rooms.

  • Group of friends

    position and price

    our rooms were very dirty and noisy (they were near a npisy elevator that hadn't revised). Old fashioned.

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    Ideal for access to metro - two blocks to Marques. FC Porto training ground/shop around corner. Good restaurants/grocers/cake shops nearby. Fantastic value at 40 euros a double room per night.

  • Couple
    7.4

    The location in Oporto is good an the rooms are quiet. Bathroom is relatively big. They have a parking under the building (notify them in advance). Windows have blinds

    The beds are hard and you tend to roll out.

  • Single
    8.8

    The staff were excellent! They made me feel like I was at home. Because I was a solo traveller they took care to have real conversations with me and help me out. They took real care with the cleaning of the rooms.

    The lift is so old that it sounds like a dinosaur every time it moved.

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    Basic but comfortable. Staff ate great especially Vigor and the gentlemen that does the night shift, as well as the lady. Location is great: short walk into the city. Highly recommend this place as there is no fuss. Thanks for a great stay

    Very clean, helpful staff and attractive price.

    Limited breakfast choice.
