“Great location. Free Parking. Uncomfortable beds”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2011

We picked this hotel for our 2 night stay out of Michelin guide. The price was great and the hotel offered free parking which was a huge plus for us. It is located on a busy shopping street - Rua Santa Catarina, about 10-15 minute walk from the center.

Rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. The decor was very old and the mattresses were very uncomfortable. I would say that the sleep quality was the only big negative of this hotel because everything else was great for a budget hotel.

Breakfast had a good selection and there was even wireless internet in the lobby.

Staff helped us with good restaurant selection in the walking distance. It helped us since we arrived late at night and needed to eat something fast. Also, on the second day we wanted take an evening drive to the coast but our car was blocked in in the garage by other cars. It would take them a long time to pull it out. The hotel manager gave us the keys from one of his cars instead and refused to take the money for the gas when we got back. What a nice gesture!

The Hotel is walking distance to the River and tourist attractions. The rooms are small and basic, but the breakfast is impressive and the staff were friendly and informative. Thank you for a pleasant stay.

There were three in our group, and we booked a triple room with a rate that included breakfast. Great value for money!! The room was large with a lovely clean bathroom (even a bath). The breakfasts were amazing!! The location is great, easy to get to the city and metro station. Would advise people on a budget to get the metro to and from the airport if possible, as the cost of a taxi is about 30 euro.

The staff at the hotel were really helpful, Paulo was fantastic and speaks perfect english. He was happy to help in any way and a really great guy. Would tell anyone going to Porto to stay here if they want a great experience!!

I booked the hotel online and got a cheap deal for 2 nights. On arrival I was shown to a room that smelled strongly of smoke. I asked to change rooms but was told that there were no other rooms. The room was also much smaller than the rooms in the photos on the website. The hotel is on a main road so it is very noisy at night and my partner was not able to sleep at all. It is a shame that they haven't thought to double glaze the windows because otherwise this would be a good cheap no frills hotel. Whilst the staff were helpful and friendly, the manager was very rude and unfriendly. I would not go back to this hotel and I would definitely not recommend it.

Booked this hotel for a weekend getaway break.
Hotel is about 15-20 mins by taxi from the airport.
Hotel is in the main centre but is a fair way up the hill from the main shopping, so good location.
Room was excellent, basic, but very clean, powerful shower and was cleaned daily.
We arrived really early and the male receptionist who was the most helpful receptionist the whole weekend, said that we could go and eat breakfast, althoughy officially we were not checking in until 12 oclock.
Breakfast was more than adequate, cereal, juice, bread for toast, rolls, pastries, cake, ham and cheese, yohgurts, and scrambled eggs and sausages. Breakfast was from 7-10am and was frequenlty replenished.
We were also offered a taxi booking to the airport on our departure and also a complimentary port whilst we waited .

Excellent little hotel in good location. excellent for a budget weekend and would recommend and stay again .

  • Liked — LOCATION, PRICE
