“The Vera Cruz has been my stopping place for years!”
Reviewed 6 May 2013

I have been staying at the hotel Vera Cruz in Porto since 1997 and have always found the service excellent and the staff friendly, They go out of their way to help if they can. It's conveniently situated so that you can easily explore the old city. The view from the breakfast room is very good too. Enjoy exploring Porto from there!

Stayed here for 4 nights at Easter. Staff was very welcoming and helpful. We booked a double room and was given 2 beds pushed together, but they changed it immediately to another room with proper double bed when we asked. Clean room and bathroom, both good sizes, wi-fi worked well, but had to log in sometimes again after a while using it. Room was a bit dark because of the buildings next to it, so no view. Breakfast was on the top floor, nice view and a good selection of food + they had Portuguese special food and cakes as well that you can buy in the bakery, but could try it here.
Staff was always helpful and smiling. Location is great, very central and close to buses, metro, train station and to the river and sight seeing buses. You can buy ticket for the sight seeing buses at the hotel.
The only disadvantage maybe, they have only 1 lift and the dining room is on the top floor on the 7th floor, the lift goes up only to the 6th floor, so for old people there is some extra stairs to climb. And when the lift is broken....... well, you do need to use the stairs. It happened to us.
We would go back to this hotel again.

Room Tip: Dining room is on the top floor and there are extra stairs to climb as the lift goes only one floor...

The Vera Cruz is a small budget hotel that prides it's self on a great location, but that's all. Rooms are outdated and the bathroom is small, so if you are a big person forget about it. We had breakfast which is on the 8th Floor and for the price was OK, however the room was too hot to enjoy your breakfast. Wi-FI was too slow to the point of given up waiting. On the plus side the staff were friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: we had a room on the front and it was a view of the square

I stayed here for two nights with a friend and I had a very pleasant stay. The room was simple but great value value for money and had a very spacious bathroom. There were extra duvets and pillows, a hairdryer, air conditioning, good wifi and a Samsung LCD TV.
The continental breakfast was as to be expected, the usual, but no complaints.
Also in a reasonably safe and central area!

Staff is very polite and helpful. Rooms are clean, a bit small, but ok. There's a bathroom also a bit small but functional. Wi-fi worked but was slow. Breakfast was good and enough variety for me and for the price you pay.
Location is perfect, very close to metro, bus, train and all the main atractions in the city center.
A good low-budget hotel.

Nice hotel in the city center. Rooms were clean with nice bathroom. Close to many attractions and shopping in old city center. Rooms are not huge but standard for a budget European hotel. Would recommend for short stays.

Room Tip: Booked the room through Booking.com and gor a much better rate than through the hotel website.

Reviewed 5 November 2012

Stayed here for 7 days in late October/early November.It is reasonably priced and very well situated for central Porto and the local Metro stops. (get a 3 day Metro pass from the information office just round the corner - 15€ - this will get you round Porto by metro, bus and funicular railway from the river to Sao Bento station - it certainly helps with the hilly nature of the city.
Staff at hotel are very friendly and helpful and the rooms mainly adequate - beware some rooms are very small. Room 405 is fine but 404 is pretty small.Everything is clean. My main complaint is the lack of choice and enterprise in the breakfast. Vera Cruz shares this with Hotel Aliados and Pao de Acucar - they are all part of the same group and I have stopped at them all.Come on lets have a bit of improvement in this field.
