Can't fault the location for the price.

Posted Jul 10, 2016
Pros: Location and security.
Cons: There are steps to enter with your suitcases so if you have back or knee problems this probably isn't the hotel for you.
Location: Walk the old city for sales then cross the Point Luiz I bridge and be rewarded with port tastings followed by sunset sangria and fish on the Rivera.
These are not expensive rooms so you get what you pay for but the staff are friendly and accommodating, they are security conscious so you feel looked after, no air conditioner but a fan, a common eating, kitchenette which is handy but walking distance to everything including the metro, the tourist bus, the old city and Porto Riveria. There is a great little cafe just after a small commercial centre just across the road up the hill where all the buses pull in. I popped into the Commercial Centre to print my boarding pass out as the hotel internet is slow and drops out.

Local is very good, but everything else's basic

Posted Dec 29, 2015
Pros: Location, location, location. It is located next to the long distance bus terminal and close to most attractions in the City.
Cons: A lot, such as adding more lighting source, portable heating units .....
Location: Close to bus terminal and most attractions.
It's located a block from the long distance bus terminal and close to most attractions in the City, so it is a perfect place for an overnight or a short stay. However, everything else is just basic .... or even below basic. During our stay, the temperature dropped below 10C or 50F, but the place does not have heating (I guess no air-conditioning in summer either?). Even though the owner provided us with an extra blanket, but the room was still cold. The room does not have enough lighting source (only one small light bulb), and the washroom is very small. Even though the staff seemed to be nice, but their English skills are a bit limited.

Budget hotel near the centre of Porto

Posted Feb 21, 2015
Pros: Good location and very low cost
Cons: Beds were hard and not very comfortable. Our room faced the road so road traffic noise was an issue.
Location: Walking distance to centre of Porto
Well located hotel and low cost, very traditional budget feel.

Close to downtown, but very thin walls, noisy!!

Posted Aug 18, 2014
Pros: staff, location, clean
Cons: noise insulation, would bring ear plugs if I returned
Location: 5 min walk from downtown, 10 min from Ribeira
Good location and clean. But a two big details that leave a sour taste. 1st - Payment is in cash only, even though the room is booked using a credit card. Not sure who's at fault (expedia vs. hotel) is it but it was not clear that it was the case. Would not be too bad except that portuguese ATMs only let you withdraw $200 euros at a time, and if you are using an international card you get charge for every withdrawal. 2nd - Walls between rooms are extremely thin, so if you have late/noisy neighbours it will make you restful sleep a challenge.

Ein absolutes NO GO in Porto

Posted Nov 3, 2016
Location: Hotel ist zentral gelegen und zu Fuss sind alle Sehenswürdigkeiten erreichbar.
Mein Zimmer war ein dunkles Loch ohne Fenster, das Hotel ist so hellhörig und man kann die Gäste, die eine Etage höher sind und in der entgegengesetzten Richtung ihr Zimmer haben, hören, wenn sie sich laut unterhalten. Ich bin um 22 Uhr nach Hause gekommen und um 23:15 Uhr klopft der Nachtportier und möchte den Zimmerpreis abkassieren. Total unmöglich, da ich gesagt habe, ich werde beim Auschecken bezahlen, da beim Check-in kein Wechselgeld vorhanden war. Das einzige Highlight war die freundliche Putzfrau!

All right, I guess

Posted Aug 10, 2016
The room is surprinsingly small. No window at all. It is located a bit far away from the nice places. But it was cheap, clean and quiet.

El hotel está cerca del centro

Posted May 3, 2016
Nos tocó una habitación al lado de la recepción, oíamos todas las conversaciones, a la gente en la cocina o hablando por skype. Por las noches el timbre todo el tiempo, o hablando por teléfono. El baño...no funcionaba el agua caliente, caía muy poca agua y apenas se veía de la poca luz que había.
