We booked our stay in Cristo Rei for 4 days. We didnt mind the dirtyness and weird smell of dampness at first. However, on our 3rd day during our sleep the ceiling of the bathroom collapsed !!! Like, totally collapsed. It was a nightmare. And the worse thing is at 5 in the morning there were literally NO ONE in...

Convenient location. Easy walk to both train stations and sites. Just off main shopping street and metro. Decor reminiscent of Edwardian eclectic mixed with 60's. Portuguese spoken. Band width variable.

Place is run down and dirty. Would not recommend. Have to be better places to stay in Porto for the price. There were 5 in our party in 3 rooms. Staff is helpful, but doesnt make up for the condition of the place.

Horrible, dirty, bad smell and not friendly hosts. We went away instantly. I wad with my mum, we asked to see the room because the entrance was incredible under our standard (and we like to sleep on the ground in the middle of nowhere on the grass).

We had a good time. The hotel is located pretty close to the center part, old town. Walking like 15 minutes to the center. The rooms are OK, clean and nice for the price :). Host is super nice and friendly, helped us much, showing what to check in the city.

Old fashioned rooms that lack maintenance. Matress that should be changed. And Toillets that deserve some maintenance... All in all not recommended because even if it is cheap the cost vs benefit is negative.

Very unconfirmed stay. It was very hot in the hotel with no air conditioning which was not promised in the site. However not even a fan? We were suffocating in there. The shower is tiny and would not drain for days. TV with no channels. The lighting was very low. I do not recommend.

-entire floor with only one toilet (not bathroom, toilet). -shower in room looking like someone was killed in there. -dirty as hell. -Seemed like anyone entered there, regardless staying there or not. -A place you would stay in with your least favorite hooker.

Thank you for your opinion. The problem is your language, only in this site you can write things like that.

The location is OK. Close to the historical center but the neighborhood has no special charm. The stuff is fantastic, cheerful and helpful. The room is really average: Old fourniture, not enough light. Bathroom pretty basic state and oldish and almost weak internet access in the room. During the high season the price is too expensive for what you get....

Thank Faiz M
