    4/5 Good

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

    Very friendly staff. The room was basic but pleasant. The door to the bathroom was broken but the staff were very apologetic when we raised it but we weren't offered another room (maybe they were full) . It didn't bother us too much but if you were travelling with friends it would have been a bigger issue. It was nice that the kitchen area and dining room are available all the time. Breakfast felt homely. The location was brilliant and in walking distance from most sights and from a metro.

    very good at an excellent price

    it`s Porto, so expect noise at night, especially if your room is on the street side. apart from that, room was clean, bathrooms are renovated, and the kitchen and communal area is nice and functional. CAtarina was a great host.
