Perfect guest house, 3 minutes from the metro linePosted Mar 7, 2014
Pros: Great knowledge of the town. Perfect english, free wifi. Very nice pleasant workers. The room was immaculate and clean. fully air conditioned. perfect
Cons: Nope, it is what it is, very well run guest house, lets not give an unjustified Improvement constructive criticism when it was perfect for what it was
Location: Metro round the corner, links the whole city. beautiful cafes and restaurants literally next door and opposite. massive shopping centre 10 minute walk
Very helpful, knowledge of everywhere in town to go and how much things cost. First thing they sat me down and opened up a map and said what would you like to see or do during your stay, they then drew out exactly how I could get around the town and explained how to find the metro line and how to use it. They upgraded me without any charge, had free wifi throughout the guest house too. I throughly recommend that you think of the Boavista Guest House, it is 75% cheaper than over priced places like 'The Grande Porto Hotel' and from what I saw of that place it was living on old fortunes, completely didn't deserve to charge people the prices it did.

Great HotelPosted Sep 21, 2013 on Hotels.com
A great hotel near the metro and a comfortable walk into town. Far enough away from the centre to be a Portuguese area, and close enough to the tourist bits! Next door to a great Cervejaria/Retaurant too.

Great location and helpful staffPosted Sep 23, 2012 on Hotels.com
Right around the corner from a Metro station and 10-15mins stroll into the centre this hotel is in a great location. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was clean, a little small but that doesn't matter if you're not staying indoors much. Great en suite, modern shower and fittings. Breakfast isn't hot, cereals, coffee and bread rolls, croissants and cheese/ham slices. It's adequate but not hangover breakfasts! They run breakfasts til 10.30 on weekends so you can lay in. Overall a great little place... oh and a fab terrace for relaxing.

You don't even get what you paid forPosted May 2, 2012 on Hotels.com
This hotel seemed great at first, but just kept getting worse and worse. I put a "do not disturb" sign out, the cleaning lady came into my room, cleaned anyways and left my room unlocked for the whole day! The 5euro breakfast was awful. Only 2/4 front desk workers were friendly. One lady was too busy checking her facebook to help me with my stroller out the front door. The bed was harder than most of the European hard beds I've slept on. In the shower one has to hold the shower head. The walls are super thin to the point noises from others and people outside woke up my hard sleeping toddler! The only positive thing is the location, but that too could have been better!
