Low cost but location not that greatPosted Sep 11, 2012 on Hotels.com
The hotel is nice, modern, low cost and the service was good. The location is a bit too far from the centre but there are buses and once you know how to get there it's not too bad. Taxis are not recommended as they don't know the hotel and therefore cost a fortune. Overall not a bad hotel - cheap and cheerful is probably how I'd sum it up.

Star Inn Porto - Nice Hotel but VERY Inconvenient!Posted Jun 6, 2011 on Hotels.com
First off, for the price, the hotel itself is actually not bad at all. The rooms were clean, modern, and had a large plasma screen TV. Now, for the more important part. If you look online at googlemaps transport to see how to get to the hotel it tells you to take the metro to Ramalde, and then it's a 20 minute walk. DO NOT DO THIS. The Ramalde area is difficult to navigate, a bit scary once it gets late at night, and the walk is FAR from 20 minutes (took me about 45 after I asked directions like 5 times - though I had written them down using googlemaps). There is a bus that comes from Porto Campanha station straight to the hotel (Bus 205) but service is erratic on weekends (when i was staying there). Though it only takes about 20 minutes by bus if that is what you'll be doing. The closest stop is 'Via Norte'. If you are coming from Campanha stop at Via Norte, cross the street to the opposite side, and then go through the tunnels. Once you come out of the tunnel Star Inn is along the dirt path. You'll be able to see it from the main street. Just to give you an idea, Via Norte is about 3 stops after Sao Jao Hospital (so watch out for it). For the price, I suppose its not too bad if you have to travel a bit to get to the centre, but I certainly wouldn't recommend it for a weekend visit. One good thing though, it is only about 20 minutes from the airport, with good transit links (costing about 2 Euros) or about 7-8 Euros to take a taxi.

OKPosted Jun 30, 2010
This hotel was OK for a one-night stay. New construction, will probably not age well. Trendy decor. Local area working class residential, not close to anything significant but closer to airport than downtown. Did not assess metro or public transportation access. Would make a difference if planning a longer stay. Requested cab was waiting for me at 4:00 am as needed. Service was friendly and responsive.
