“Good value hotel!”
Reviewed 14 July 2008

This hotel has a great location near the city hall and you can get there easily from the airport (metro station Trindade 200m away!). The hotel is good value for your money! The rooms in Vera Cruz are quite small, but all the basics are ok. Our double room itself was quite old, but we saw them renovating some rooms. They had just finished renovating the hotel from outside and doing the work inside. The work was not disturbing, because they did it at daytime when we were away. Our room was also very quiet at night because it was facing the back yard.
We liked the buffet breakfast very much and was served in the toproof breakfast room with balcony. Nice view!
Especially the lady in the reception was incredibly friendly and helpful!! She was always smiling and willing to help us!

I would recommend this hotel if you are not looking for any "extras".
It is perfectly located in the centre, the breakfast was good and the room was correct (simple) but unfortunately not clean enough to my standards (the wardrobe had a lot of dust on top of each shelf but the essential was clean!).
So if you will be out the whole day to explore Porto I would recommend it. That’s why we were there and this hotel was good enough.

The staffs in this hotel are the best I have ever met and we travel approx. every twelfth weeks in Europe.
Breakfast great and location brilliant but the
problem is the hotel is being done up and there is painting which means fumes and loud laughing and joking work men early in the morning followed by windows and patio doors being hammered out.
we had to complain and was given a 15% discount which is standard if you complain but it spoils the holiday to have banging and shouting waking you up in the morning

  • Liked — position within porto very central
  • Disliked — building work/painting and small room
