We stayed at the Quality Inn Porto for a couple of nights after a river cruise in November 2012. We paid 12.50 Euros for an "unmetered" taxi from the port to the hotel. This taxi was arranged by the river cruise company, so we didn't know until we entered the taxi that it wasn't metered. The hotel is walkable from the port, for those who are hearty enough, by using the funicular (elevator) which costs 1.80 Euros per person, one-way. When you leave the station at the top, walk straight uphill (it's not steep) one and a half blocks to Batalha Square (Praca da Batalha). The hotel is the large pinkish building just to the left across the square.
Check-in was easy and the staff friendly. The location of the Quality Inn Port was superb for walking to different places of interest, shopping, and restaurants. Our double room was moderately priced at 137 Euros for 2 nights. The room was clean and the bathroom was a decent size---not huge, but manageable. It had a tub/shower (with shower curtain), sink, toilet, and bidet. Two sealed plastic cups were on the bathroom sink along with a small basket that had a small bar of soap and a couple of shower caps. The room had a king-size bed, flat screen TV, phone, and had plenty of storage space. It also had a coffee/tea making tray with a variety of coffees and teas. Our room (#606) was pretty quiet, even though it faced onto Batalha Square. My brother had a single room (#604) which was smaller and had a double bed with flat screen TV, phone, and coffee/tea-making tray. His bathroom had a shower cubicle, not a tub/shower combo like in the double room. He paid 127 Euros for two nights.
The included full buffet breakfast was excellent and had hot items such as scrambled eggs, sausage and make-your-own toast, and cold items such as cereals, fruits, juices, yogurt and rolls. Breakfast was served from 6:30am to 10:30am.
This hotel was better than we expected for the price we paid. If you're looking for a moderately-priced, clean, well-located hotel, this is the one.
