    I have been traveling for 5 months and this is the first time I have felt the need to write a review - the hotel is in a fantastic location - you are in the heart of the old city town - great for sightseeing - the hotel is a family run establishment and I can't stress how friendly and welcoming they make you feel - the rooms are spacious and very comfortable and very clean - I would recommend this hotel - had a brilliant stay

    Simple and clean, free parking, good value for money

    Bathroom is hideous.Breakfast room too small, only five tables in a miniature room.The hotel is not so close to the city centre.

    Very good location, free wifi, free parking place.

    Very old furniture, if you were in the 80'S.

    Free parking, friendly staff, relatively good location

    Smell of urine (!) on the corridor... From 10:30pm there was a terrible noise under our window so we had to close it despite the warm weather. Old, used-looking rooms (though clean).

    Close to the centre of Oporto , cheap, included a reasonable breakfast and good wireless facilities.

    Miserable, unfriendly and grumpy front desk staff !! Dreadful attitude towards guests . Very unhelpful. I dont think I saw any of them smile .....

    basic but everything worked, good location 3mins to metro station. fairly good value

    quite dated, brekfast although edible there is much room for improvment, 'luggage room' was just a unlockable service room but still least there was one.

    great location. walking distance from Bolhao metro station. right next to the shopping street, Rua do Sta. Catarina... very friendly staff, reception is manned 24/7. clean room as well. there's a bath also.. i got them to iron my suit for free. the housekeeping said i would only pay if i put it for laundry...wifi speed is okay.

    breakfast only had bread, jam/butter, and ham & cheese... some milk, coffee and juice. wouldn't hurt if they had scrambled egg perhaps... anyway still OK breakfast. the portuguese croissant is irresistable i would eat two everytime... can be noisy. i could hear my neighbors and/or people talking in the hallway. passing cars even with windows closed could be a nuisance...still my stay here is one of the most relaxing... very much worth the low price...

    Located in the historical center of the city so everything is within walking distance. Metro station nearby,perfect for going and coming from the airport. Hotel rooms were clean and the staff helpful. After checking out we were able to leave our suitcases there all day. Breakfast was simple but abundant. St. Catherina shopping mall nearby with numerous places to eat.

    The hotel was within walking distance of most of the sights in Porto. It had a free parking garage next door which was handy. Breakfast was standard for Portugal.

    Some of the walls were peeling and in need of paint and the hallway carpets were dirty. The hotel seemed to be full when we were there so apparently the reviews on this site which say the hotel needs refurbishing don't hold back the customers. After all, we booked there. I said I would recommend this hotel because overall the room was clean and for those looking for a budget hotel, this is pretty good.
