“Good hotel”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

We stayed at the hotek for 1 night at February 2012 with my friends. The hotel is good, furniture is new, flat TV, air condition, The room is small and there is no hair dryer. The breakfast was good: ham, chees, bread etc. There is no lift at the hotel. The parking is about 500m away from the hotel. I can recomenr this hotel for 1 or 2 night stay.

Pros: Good location, less than 10 mintutes from centre. Staff is nice and friendly, all of them speak english. Room and bathroom was clean. Breakfast was good and with wide choise of dishes.

Cons: Room on the first floor near the reception is very noisy. No parking nearby.


Excellent value for money, better than many of 3 star hotels.

Room Tip: Do not choose room near receprion.

I agree on everything what was told about this hotel before - it's lovely, nice, perfectly clean hotel. Rooms have only basic things and are small, but when you eat your breakfast, you will forget about your small room (see room tips below). Hotel staff is more then friendly, they were glad to help us in everything.
Location is a little far from the downtown, but there are some pluses: hotel is in quiet location, and only 15 minutes (1 km) walking to downtown and close to 2 metro stops.
Rooms don't have enough soundproofing, so be prepared you may hear your noisy neighbors (if any ;)).
There is free wi-fi in every room, but its quality depends on how far your room is from the lobby. We stayed on quiet 3rd floor with nice view on a church from the window, but Internet connection was not good at all in the room.
In general I would say: Excellent price to quality ratio.

Room Tip: If you are going to use Internet in your room (free wi-fi), then it's better to choose a room on...

The staff were very friendly. About 5 minutes from the center of Porto by metro. Great and cheap restaurant just near the hotel (Brazilian) O Mordomo, great food just for 6-9 euro and honestly wonderful food and service!The bathroom and the room was perfectly clean. Breakfast was fresh and good with wide choice. There is free wifi in the lobby of the hotel. I would definitely consider staying there again when I return to Porto! Located in a quiet area.
