Incredible value hotel, great location and friendly staff. The rooms were clean and nice, there's free parking available(ask at the reception) and free wi-fi(ask at the reception for the password). The breakfast was pretty good.

The location is great since it's on one of the main tourist streets, while there make sure to visit the Bolhão market, and the cafés in the area(Majestic Café, while very nice, is pricey too). About 50m from the hotel's entrance(towards the river) you have one of the best places in Oporto to eat Francezinha(all meat sandwich in spice sauce, incredible!), Bufete Fase, recommended.

My husband, 6 year old daughter and myself stayed 2 nights at this family-run small hotel in July, 2012. The location was ~15 min. walk to town and was in a rundown neighborhood, but the staff were very nice and helpful, the rooms/bed were clean and the breakfast was good. I would recommend this hotel to others.

Seculo residencial was very nice little hotel we stayed in during our 4 day trip to Porto. Located in not so attractive neighborhood but this hotel did not give us a chance to complain about any other thing. Rooms were spacious, well appointed and serviced, these were regularly cleaned and sheets were changed with fresh ones everyday. Staff was very understanding and cooperative, prompt in their services and always ready to help and attend the requests. Location of the hotel make it a very convenient place to stay it is hardly five to ten minutes walk away from city center. Though the surroundings are rough but they are safe and manageable. It is a very good place to stay with family or group if visiting Porto.

We stayed at the Seculo Hotel because it was very close to the city centre of Porto, just 15 minutes walking. The hotel itself is a small family hotel, and it had everything we needed for our stay. There was a problem with the beds (we asked for a room with two individual beds but they gave us a room with one double bed), and the staff just gave us 2 different rooms (each with a double bed) instead, so we were very pleased. The breakfast was good, and the rooms itself were very clean. The hotel is located close to the street, but thanks to double windows you practically don't hear a thing of the outside traffic.

I am a physician who travelles internationally 4-5 times yearly. When I travel with my wine and food doctor buds we like to stay at clean, good value (lower cost) central hotels with free WiFi. Seculo Residencial has it and more...in spades. The staff and faciltiy are spot on. You get a full spead breakfast and a Bika (espresso) for a very low price. Free parking is always so nice. The only drawback is the location is in a rundown part of town (but safe). Gutted buildings all over Porto. (What is wrong with the Porto?) It is a brisk 5-10 minute walk to the "fun" parts of the city.
You will not be sorry if you stay here.
Enjoy!!

We stayed here just one night and it was fine. The room was spacious and clean and had all we needed. The staff were lovely, friendly and helpful. Its a bit of a walk to the tourist area but only 4 stops by nearby metro, so easy enough. I doubt Id want to spend a week here, but for an overnight stay we were quite happy. Big bonus is free off-road parking. For what we paid we thought it was fine.
