“Decent city stop hotel”
Reviewed 2 January 2013

Stopping here for the night before arriving in Porto, Hotel Rali provided basic accommodation and convenient and free car-parking. Our room (and I assume the rest are the same, or similar) was simple and somewhat out-dated, but perfectly comfortable, and the price relatively reasonable. The staff were friendly and helpful, one women even offering us her own umbrella when we headed out for dinner (to the restaurant she recommended - wonderful goat stew) and it was pouring with rain. The manager also poured a mean gin and tonic, I think it was more tonic and gin, so a tick there!

It's a 1 star hotel! But having said that, the room we had was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was very small but functional. Sound proofing is not very good, we could hear the conversation in the room next to us. If I spoke Portuguese, I could have understood every word.
The room did have AC & there was free WiFi available in the lobby.
Parking is outdoor in front of the hotel and is free.
The hotel is bout a 10 minute from city centre and about a 5 minute walk to the funicular to go to the top to see the cathedral. Go there, climb the tower, it only costs a Euro each and the view is spectacular.
Breakfast was the minimum allowed in Portugal: cold cuts, cheese slices, buns, tea/coffee. No yogurt, no fruit.
There is an indoor pool but it looked quite dirty and the water was cold.
The front counter staff were very friendly and helpful.

There wasn't anything really wrong with the hotel, it is dated and needs to be refurbished but I would not stay here again.

Room Tip: See if they have any rooms with a larger bathroom.
