“Overall comfortable”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

The hotel doesn't look pretty on the outside, it's the inside which counts. It's recently refurbished and looks modern and clean. Rooms are comfortable, tidy and also very clean! Staff is friendly and helpfull and speak propper english. Breakfast is basic but good, enjoyed it every morning! Location is key, less than 5 minute walk to the center, waterside and other sights. Great value for money!!!

Room Tip: first floor, street side can be noisy. We were moved from 101 (streetside, 1st floor next to elevato...

I´ve stayed with some friends in this hotel for 6 nights.
In the beggining i had some problems to sleep because of the noise of the closest kizomba bar, but the bed is confortable so.
The location is perfect, the best places are around 10/15 minutes walking, in less than a day we may see a lot of the best monuments, like Livraria Lello or Torre dos Clérigos.
Breakfast is so so.
Receptionists are kind and communicative.

We stayed here for 3 nights during the week and had an undisturbed sleep every night. The room had a balcony with 2 chairs and a table. The location is good, a 10 minute walk from the main square and the tourist buses. It was a great bonus having free wifi in the room. An unexpected pleasure was having the linen changed every day. The room and en-suite were very clean. The breakfast provided a good choice although the room is rather small. The staff are friendly, helpful and speak English. There is 24 hour reception and a lift. All this for 46 euro a night including breakfast .Why stay anywhere else ?

Room Tip: Our room was top floor at the front which gave a great view over the rooftops.

I spent a week with my mum in Feb. There's air con to keep you warm or cool you off. Free wifi.
The staff are friendly and helpfull. It's a laid back place. Rooms are a good size. And no issues with the room or cleaning.
It's in a good location. Close to everything.

The only problem is when it comes to the weekend Friday - Sunday, you can hear loud music all night. I believe there are two nightclubs further down the road, hence the noise. But during the week its quiet.

Stayed February 2014, travelled with family

Very central, with free wi-fi, budget hotel, the A/C smelled very old when working.
pay attention on the day you are staying, if you like to sleep, better to chose a higher floor, during the weekends is very noisy

Room Tip: nice for a few hours of sleep and in the heart of the town (lots of bars around)

Malaposta is a well positioned hotel: near the center, but far enough from it, letting guests the opportunity to discover a less tourist part of the city.

The breakfast is nice and well-stocked.

Despite of these good points, in my humble opinion services could be largely improved, specially reception and cleaning.

I've been accommodated in a 4th floor room and I personally suggest to avoid this floor in the sunny periods, since the room was like an oven and air conditioning is so light that after 2 hours the room was still hot.

I had to discuss to obtain a change of room. I think that it is not fair to offer such rooms in these conditions.

Anyway, rooms are not fully cleaned. Hairs are very common both in the bathroom (that was spacious) and near the bed.

Room Tip: avoid 4th floor rooms in the sunny periods

i was there in may 2013. for 3 days.
room was ok, breakfast was poor, but location is wonderful. down the street are two clubs. one is for rock fans, and one is for fancy ppl. little bit for everyone. because that all night people cruising through the street. all in all not bad. once again: location is a key.
