“I have stayed worse places in my life... Barely.”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

The hotel is by no means a 4* - max 3, if even so. And the service was even less so.
When I arrived, my room was unbearably hot. After a long drive I needed a nap, which was impossible in the room. Staff couldn't care less and only asked me to turn on the aircon, which of course I had already done - but the quality of it would cool down the room in hours, not minutes.
Parking is very limited as in all of Porto, which of course is ok - but the attitude from reception and other staff to the challenge was not. At least they didn't laugh up in my face as they did to other incoming guests at the time, but still the only answer was "pay 15€ and we can help"... OK, thanks... I tried my luck at the street parking and it worked out fine for the single night I was staying at the hotel.
The location is so-so, not really inviting, but only 15-20 minutes walk to any sight... Bear this in mind if you actually want to stay at this hotel.
Bathrooms are tiny - very tiny. You can barely sit at the toilet without banging your knees on the "bathtub" (which itself is tiny: like 60 x 90 cm).
Breakfast has been seen worse, but definitely wasn't inviting either. Options are limited, and fresh fruit was kept to a minimum, just as the "fresh juices" are poured out of boxes that has never seen any orange or other fruits in their lifes. Just not good enough when so much fruit and greens are in season.
I was in doubt whether to grade the place with one or two dots... I still am. But as cleanliness was okay, I suppose the lowest grade would not be entirely fair.

Room Tip: Best advice for this hotel: Find another hotel to stay at.

For a small hotel I found the staff here to be tremendously professional. Breakfast is always a welcomed inclusion when travel on a budget. It was actually a pretty good spread of food choices. I expected a better wifi internet connection. Just because it is included for free doesn't mean it should be terrible. Perhaps is was just my room 506, but very slow and a tab unreliable. Decor is a bit dated and could use a renovation but in saying that it was well maintained and very clean. The was a gym but I don't think it was working, the door was locked. 4 stars? More like 3. For the price and the location I would stay here again.

The hotel is well located for walking around on foot. Our room were clean and comfortable and spotless - and there was loads of storage space. Breakfast provided a good selection to suit everyone. Free WiFi. The staff were, without exception, friendly, courteous, and most helpful. We would stay there again without hesitation.

We took a trip in Porto between 10 and 13th of January and choose this hotel based on TA reviews.Location is good but quite far from all things to to or see.
Room was good but old,old furniture,beds were ok,AC worked well,bathroom clean.
Windows need replacing,furniture as well.
Breakfast was ok,less of everything tho.

A combination of trains made access to this hotel easy. The hotel is well located for walking around on foot. The room was not large, but adequate; and the staff were friendly and helpful. I would certainly use this hitel again in Porto.

Well situated hotel, with helpful and friendly staff. Wouldn't advise driving there, as car park in front of the hotel was always full with others waiting for spaces. Rooms were clean and comfortable, and breakfast provided a good selection to suit everyone. Also provided free wifi.
