Great place to stay in a good location. Modern, clean and with a wonderful food hall attached. Very helpful and pleasant staff. Comfortable bed, quiet room, slept like a log. My only gripe is that there were no coffee/tea making facilities in the room but to be fair the staff did offer to bring up a pot of hot water whenever I wanted it. I have already recommended the hotel to my daughter for her visit and I would definitely stay there again.
Lovely room. Reception staff were very welcoming and helpful.
I forgot a shirt and 7 days later they were able to locate it. Most hotels would not want to know. This is typical of their helpful and friendly attitude.
Not in the river side part of town but a good location anyway.
Recommend O Paparicio restaurant also which can be reached by bus from near this hotel.
I loved this hotel from start to finish! I usually stay in bigger hotels when I travel and generally like to be more inconspicuous in a hotel so was unsure about the 6 rooms and it being smaller, but it was just so warm and lovely! The staff spend a lot of time with you when you have any questions but they are not intrusive or over the top, they are just so helpful and friendly! The location is PERFECT and the rooms are super cool and the hotel is really stylish all over! I cant recommend it enough! Don't hesitate, stay here!! :)
"Basic but clean and friendly hotel, in city centre"
We didn't need anything posh, just a base to be tourists from. The room was better than basic,very clean, and had its own bathroom. We emailed and asked specifically for a room at the back as we had read on trip advisor that the local streets can be a bit noisy at night. We received an email confirming that we had a back room. The first night it was quite noisy as we had the window open, an unseasonably hot autumn, and had not discovered the air con. The next night we closed the window and all was fine.
The breakfast was basic, two rolls and a pastry with Juice and either tea or coffee, I saw people ask for 2nds with no trouble, it set us up nicely for the day. We could have had it in our room if we wanted.
The staff were friendly and polite, and offered us advice when asked.
There are lots of trendy bars and eateries in the two local streets some of them doing an kind of after work deal of a snack (eg quiche) and a drink (eg wine or beer) for about 4 euros.
Nice little place to use as a base to visit the city from and not very far from all the sites.
I was in an executive room and it had sea view. It was very spacious and quiet. Great view of the city and sea, albeit it not being close to the sea. There is a separate sitting room and it was very spacious and comfortable.
I would return to this hotel if we were ever in Porto again. Our studio apartment was quite nice and modern. They had an Ikea crib set up for our infant in our room with really pretty/fun baby print linen. The room was nicely decorated and clean. We had a view of the park across the street. We walked to the downtown area twice in about 30minutes. The park across the street is also a noted in the tourist book as is a church 5 minutes walk away. We also took the metro to and from downtown and we went to the beach and caught bus 502 close to the hotel. There is no front desk and we never saw hotel staff. We received the codes in an email to the hotel and all worked as planned. Our hotel room wasn't serviced but we were there 4 days and we don't need new linen or towels for four days. We could have used more toilet paper so we went out and bought some. For the price of this hotel it was really great.
The neighborhood looks run down, but it was safe. The room was small but tidy, with marble floors, a comfortable bed and a very powerful air conditioner, not that we needed it too much. The rest of the place was clean as well, lots of marble tile, brass rails on the stairs. The metro stop is only two blocks away, one block past the police station, something which made us feel safe as well. There are lots of cafeterias with a three block walk to get breakfast. The best thing about this place was the staff. Very helpful people. And very nice as well. I highly recommend this to budget conscious folks. For the money, it is a great bargain and will enable you to enjoy lovely old Porto, three metro stops away.
