    central, close to metro, tour buses and local bus stops.close to some good cheap cafes and restuarants down the side streets.

  • Couple
    5.0

    This hotel should be put down in stars. Rooms smell badly. Walls are thin; you can hear people taking the shower, speaking, watching TV. Beds are very very unconfortable! I am 1,80 m and my head and feet were touching the two extremes of the bed. Furthermore the matress was old; its springs were hurting my back the all night. The remote of the airco was missing and it was not possible to regulate the temperature. The breakfast was limited in choice and those few things available were of low quality (no fresh fruit, low quality ham and cheese, disgusting coffee). Personel was impolite and was doing noise at midnight in the kitchen (one floor over my room). I advise you not to go to this hotel.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    Great location near Metro stop. Two bedrooms suitable for family with children. Nice breakfast room.

    Family suite was on back side of hotel with views of building walls. Very dreary. Noisy when trying to sleep (outside noise as well as other guests' doors and plumbing.) Sister hotel down the block is a far better choice for family suite.

  • Couple
    6.6

    Surely the location was veryyyy convenience, we went everywhere by walking and did great shopping.Breakfast was fair, everything was fresh!!

    we can't say we didn't like, but we wanted to stay in downtow and Porto downtow is old therefore all buidings and hotels around the strutural is veryy old..so don't get surprise!!! but really the city is magic!!!

  • Family with children
    3.2

    Cental location (not that important in Porto due to excellent transportation around town)

    Dirty, smelly, noisy, outdated, small hotel and rooms (and lacking any character or charm). Received a proposal to pay an extra 20-30$ to "upgrade to suite" (same as above but bigger!). Very unprofessional staff, unreasonable charges (E.G. 5 eur to keep the small bag after check- out)....Skimpy breakfast. Nothing good to say - expecially considering that you can find a bunch of great hotels in Porto for the same money (we move to a real 4-star hotel in the center for 5 eur more). This "hostel" should not be rated 3 stars, and can not be offered for more than 30 eur.

  • Older travelers
    4.2

    The two members of staff that we came into contact with were both pleasant and tried to be helpful.

    We booked a King Size suite - the only things that can be described as "king size" were the bed and the price we paid for such an awful room. The bathroom was not of the standard we would have expected - there was no plug in the sink and in general it was shabby. We will not be returning to this hotel ever

  • Family with children
    8.8

    Very friendly staff. Good family room with two separate bed rooms.

    The staff's recommendation for restaurant and cafe turned out to be owned by the hotel owner. We should have been informed about that.

  • Single
    9.2

    The Hotel is very well located, the staff was friendly and always ready to share some good tips about the city.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    The hotel is well located and clean, it is simple and modern and provides a good base from which to enjoy Porto.

  • Couple
    9.6

    Staff were extremly helpful.the rooms were great as was the breakfast.great comfort and value for money!!

    Has a mini bar but no tea/coffee facilities

  • Family with children
    9.6

    Nice staff, good location, clean

    some rooms are with "backdor" view

  • Couple
    8.8

    Helpfulness of the staff. Comfortable rooms. Simple but plentiful breakfast. Hotel was in a great position, just off the main centre.

    Only complaint would be of other guests who insisted on banging doors late at night but that is not the fault of the hotel, just guests who gave no thought to other guests in the hotel.

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    Easy accessible to public transport facilities.

    Very noisy. No lobby area and no facilities for coffee, snacks etc with the exception of breakfast which finished at 10am.

  • Single
    9.6

    The staff were really friendly and helpful, and the location is good being right outside Aliados Metro station.

  • Couple
    7.8

    good, relax breakfast at the balcony with nice view, convenient location to thake touristic bus, or metro train
