“Friendly, helpful, quiet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2011

We didn't have reservations for Porto and got Menfis from the tourist office--always a little disquieting. We were very pleasantly surprised. Double room with a window over a little garden, clean in every respect, free WIFI, decent breakfast and a supremely friendly and helpful staff. Even helped my husband learn some basics of rugby as he watched a match from the bar. We believe in sleeping inexpensively when we can and eating/drinking well with the savings and this hotel measured up in every respect. I'd stay there again with pleasure.

The hotel is a few minutes walk from a central metro and bus station, so it's a good location and by foot too you can reach the center of Porto. After staying at the Holiday Inn in Lisbon, this hotel was a bit of a downgrade. Bed and bathroom were clean and shower had hot water - that was enough for us. All the rest, nothing to write home about. Front desk staff do not always speak English. If you don't really have to be in the center of Porto, get another hotel. Again, it's what we paid for and it's fair enough.

We stayed for 2 nights in a dobble bed room. It was exelent!

The hotel is about 10 min away from the citycentre. The street to the hotel is very steep but if you are young its ok.
Its a really nice hotel and we had everyday a clean service who did the beds and gave us new towels and so on.
The bathroom was really nice with hot water 24 h a day. The staff was very nice and helpfull.
They let us check in earlier so that we could sleep a few hours because we arrived really early in the morning (about 7 am). They didnt make us problems because of the early check in.

We love that hotel and will definitly come back!!

The hotel is staffed by friendly and polite people, who are willing to help and speak good English. The hotel itself looks a bit tatty and the rooms we had could have used a more thorough cleaning as they seemed as if they weren't used that often. The towels in the bathroom are changed daily and the beds are made up neatly each morning, so there is good attention to detail. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were spacious, the air conditioning unit was also very effective. There are no safes in the rooms, although individual safes are available at reception and you keep the key. The breakfast is good and consists of cereals, breads, cheese & meats there are also a selection of teas, cold drinks or coffee. The location is slightly out of the city centre and up a very steep hill if walking from the Rua Santa Catarina, so if you are not keen on hill walking, this probably isn't the hotel for you. Busses go up the main road near the hotel, but there didn't seem to be much in the way of public transport nearby.

Not a bad hotel. My single room was large, with a queen sized bed, air conditioning and a large bathroom. The room was clean, but basic. I was never able to get the curtains to fully close but the light in the morning never proved to be a real problem. The bar fridge was locked for some reason.

Breakfast was fine. Nice fresh bread, ham, cheese and some basic pastries and fruit. The fresh coffee was OK.

The staff were helpful, albeit a little 'cold'.

The location was OK, in a quiet part of town about a half hours walk (or a 10 min, 5 Euro cab ride) from the river.

All up, a nice hotel at a very good price.

  • Liked — Breakfast
  • Disliked — The fact that I was unable to fully close the curtains
