Set in a poorer area 5 mins out of the centre this hotel was extremely good.
Lots of Porto is poor and falling down especially just out of the centre but that can add to its character. Next door can be a mansion - thats the charm of Porto.
The hotel is close to 2 metro stations 1 up a hill 1 down! and when you enter its like being in a different world. The attention to detail especially cleanliness and decorative order is immediately noticed.
We were greated like old friends - big smiles and the feeling that you were No 1. A map was given to us with points of interest , eating places, transport points and walk ways pointed out. Toanyone who has not been to wonderful Porto the staff want to make your stay fruitful in every respect.
The room was impecable a tiny bit small but remember always the price you are paying!
The area is silent next to no traffic so very suitable for light sleepers.
Breakfast was the usual European buffet breakfast - meats, cheeses, breads, cakes, yoghurts, fruit juice, coffee & other drinks such as chocolate etc. Everything presented well especially tea where different types are available and at least 12 speciality teas! - A really nice touch.
I can highly recommend this hotel in every respect at a very good price. Remember it is not a 5star hotel! so dont expect the room bar and swimming pool
Another stay here would be certain
