8/10 Very Good

Good room, great location, poor wifi
Good budget hotel. Spacious room and bathroom. Good location; shopping, markets, and many dining options nearby, and walkable to all the great sights. I didn’t use public transit at all as I could walk everywhere I needed to go, including meeting points for tours. The room shows some signs of wear and tear, not a problem. The biggest downfall of this hotel is the poor wifi. I used a lot of data during my stay here. Fix this, and I’d stay again.

6/10 Good

As many of the reviews stated I would not recommend this for a longer stay. The breakfast is fantastic and worth adding onto your stay. The room comes with no toiletries and a single pillow the bed is not very comfortable. I would recommend spending a little more on a nicer hotel. Our room flooded in the night and they sent our stuff to be dry cleaned but didn’t offer any other accommodations so service is alright.

Is in a great location, all staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms basic but very clean and functional. Breakfast buffet very good with good choice of pastries, bread etc and lovely big bowl of fresh fruit every morning. Nothing negative to say about our stay there.

Stopped for 3 nights,, room was ok,, beds quite comfy and bathroom did its job,, the room was let down by being on the ground floor next to reception,, very noisy in the mornings with large groups checking out,, also a lot of traffic noise early in the morning,, continental breakfast filled a gap,, fresh rolls,, ham,, cheese,, fruits,, yoghurt,, tea, coffee, juices,, bread for toasting,, hotel wasn't far from main bridge and quayside,, would definitely recommend taxi back as its uphill,, overall not a bad stay,, would be better with a higher floor room

Reasonable price for a truly outstanding location. Very central to all of Porto’s places of interest. Walking distance to Sao Bento and Bolhao Metro stations. Convenient to the Batalha station where you can take the funicular down to tge and up the Ribeira area. Very basic but clean surroundings. Next to a bus station for traveling in and around Portugal.
