Great budget hotel convenient for centre

by simply-peregrinating on 10 Jan 2017 (Friends Traveller)

This is a very clean well run hotel where all the staff work hard and try very much to please. The lady in the dining room never stops working, replenishing the buffet food, clearing and resetting tables making sure breakfast runs smoothly. It was very cold whilst we were there and the lady on reception came to our room twice to make sure we were warm enough, when we weren't sure how to get the room warm. We asked for an extra pillow which she brought to us after only 2 to 3 minutes of asking. ...

Awesome staff, great stay

by xvictoriax on 16 Aug 2016 (Solo Traveller)

First let me comment how lovely the staff are. I caught a Madrid bus which came in at 5 ( I thought 6). I didn't approach the hotel until 7 ( I thought 8), so they could hold my bags. Now they went above the call of duty and let me have a room so I could have a shower and a little nap. They were angels for me. While the rooms are small they contain all you need. The showers are strong and hot. Wifi was also strong. I can wholly recommend these guys.

good on budget

Clean room, wi-fi, simple breakfast but very helpfull and lovely stuff. About location: not in historic Portu, but very close. I prefer walking and getting down to centre took me about 15min. (just straight down the street).Metro station is 5min away and Bus Stop (to Matosinhos beach - 30min ride) is just around the corner. Basic breakfast (like everywhere around the coast) few restaurants, mercado's (food shops) and fresh fruit shops around.

porto for less

This is a small family run basic hotel which we found to be very clean, and welcoming by the staff. The hotel is tucked down a side street about five minutes from the metro line near the stop known as Marques, this is the line that goes directly to and over the river Douro (yellow line d) so very easy to get around Breakfast was very basic ,hot cold drinks, bread rolls,cheese ,meat and cereals but for the price we paid definitely no complaints we would certainly use again

Good budget option

by Heather B on 16 May 2016 (Couple Traveller)

Positives: lovely, helpful staff. Spacious, clean rooms. Secure parking in the basement of the hotel. Good value. Things to consider: it's a 2-star hotel. So not fancy, and breakfast is fairly simple. It's a short metro ride to the centre of town, but rather few restaurants and places to eat within walking distance.
