Overall the experience was great. The place was very central, you can pretty much walk everywhere. Very easy and friendly communication with the hotel staff, check in and check out were easy, and we were able to store our luggage on the last day. Property was very clean and modern. There is quite a lot of traffic in the area, but once the windows are closed, that is not an issue. You have a fully equipped kitchen so you can easily cook, have a coffee etc. It would be nice if the hotel made basic cooking supplies available such as salt, pepper and oil.

Love it! Would definitely return!
Amazing amazing experience staying at Insitu!!! Our check in was a bit later than we were told but despite check in issue, room was amazing compared to other rooms at this rate in Europe, it was super clean, front desk was friendly and we could leave out luggage there until check in time. Beautiful room with kitchen , very close to bolhao market and catalina street. Just 20min walk to the riverside and luis bridge. Would stay here again when I go back to Porto
