I stayed at the Residencia Lis B&B in June while I was travelling on my own. What makes this a great place to stay is the owner. I was thrilled when I arrived to find that he was willing to give me as much information as I wanted, to the extent that he had a map of the city ready for me and had already laid out a recommended route for the two days I would be in Porto included which buses to take where and a few things that were off the beaten track a ways. However what makes me recommend this is the great care they took of me when I sprained my ankle on the uneven sidewalks of Porto my last evening. They offered to change my room to one downstairs so I wouldn't have to walk up, delivered ice for my to use, and in the morning he even got out his car and drove me to the train station so that I didn't have to try to navigate my own way there.
While the hotel is not in the big tourist area it was easy enough to get to. When I arrived I took the subte, but the walk was a bit farther than I expected. However the bus runs right by the hotel and stops half a block away. Follow the directions for the bus from the website to get there on your own. My normal dislike of taking buses to a location I didn't know were alleviated by the fact that the buses have displays indicating the upcoming stop.
The room I was in was clean, comfortable and basic. Breakfast is simple - bread, fruit, cheese and meat. If you want a small family run place to stay this is a great choice.
