8.4.Very Good.
  • 8.0.Very Good

    Upon arrival a day later than expected the girls at the reception desk were very helpful and gave us all the info we needed it in Porto. The room was very small and had almost no space to put anything but we made it work. The bathroom was tiny and shower curtain smell bad (I am not a complainer so we decided not to say anything). The breakfast buffet was good and had options. Hotel location was close to a bus stop so It was easier to get around the city.

    This hotel is central and handy to transit and at least one really good local homestyle restaurant. For shoppers, high-end fashion stores are just a couple of streets away.

    Is in a great location, all staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms basic but very clean and functional. Breakfast buffet very good with good choice of pastries, bread etc and lovely big bowl of fresh fruit every morning. Nothing negative to say about our stay there.

    Istay

    Stopped for 3 nights,, room was ok,, beds quite comfy and bathroom did its job,, the room was let down by being on the ground floor next to reception,, very noisy in the mornings with large groups checking out,, also a lot of traffic noise early in the morning,, continental breakfast filled a gap,, fresh rolls,, ham,, cheese,, fruits,, yoghurt,, tea, coffee, juices,, bread for toasting,, hotel wasn't far from main bridge and quayside,, would definitely recommend taxi back as its uphill,, overall not a bad stay,, would be better with a higher floor room

    Reasonable price for a truly outstanding location. Very central to all of Porto’s places of interest. Walking distance to Sao Bento and Bolhao Metro stations. Convenient to the Batalha station where you can take the funicular down to tge and up the Ribeira area. Very basic but clean surroundings. Next to a bus station for traveling in and around Portugal.

    Well situated near the midevel city

    Very small room without a closet. Too little room for unpacking of luggage. A/C and bathroom OK. Breakfast also OK, however to be taken in the cellar. Welcome service was really great, the attendant gave us a very good briefing of Porto and the nearby restaurants etc. All in all the hotel lived up to our expectations, amd we like to give our recommendation to a visit here.
