My brother and I stayed here in Nov 09 when we took a 10 day trip of Spain and Portugal. We were trying to find relatively cheap accommodations, and this fit the bill at under $90 / night. The place looks and feels like an old castle. We got one of the rooms on the upper floor of the tower. It had a nice size queen bed, although it was pretty hard and looked like it hadn't been updated in some time. The best part of the room was the small balcony off the side, which gave us a view over a good part of Porto. Was a real nice treat to steal a cigar smoke up there around sundown.
By far the best part of this hotel is the staff. They went out of their way to make sure we had a great stay. The breakfast in the morning has lots of options with complimentary coffee and a variety of pastries and cereals. The internet in the lobby was free, although their computer looks to be about as old as the castle.
The hotel is situated up quite a hill, so walking to and from could be a bit much. But for those concerned there is a subway stop up the hill so you never have to walk up if you don't want.
If you have the cash look for a better place, but if you wanna stay somewhere under $100 i couldn't think of a better spot.
