Thank you comment. About cleaning, you could advise us and that would have been solved.

We booked a triple room with bath online here for a very reasonable EUR 35 per night. The residence is located in a somewhat run-down (but safe) neighborhood north of Campo 24 Agosto. While the exterior is unimpressive, the interior is very nice, featuring marble walls and vaulted ceilings, though it was a bit dark. When we arrived, it took...

Thank you for your fair review. About the staff, this is a small family run hotel, thats why we can't have someone always at font- desk but if you ring the bell there is no problem!

I stayed in this hotel for 3 days last year and I was pleasantly surprised. It has amazing value for it's price - it was clean, safe, and very comfortable. My boyfriend and I got a very large room which was probably the cleanest room I stayed in on my Portugal trip. Service was good too although not too many...

Reviewed 1 June 2014

Although I cannot say the residence was far from the city center, I don't think it was well located (awkward and isolated street). The room was clean but the service was very unprofessional, there was never people at the reception and we were welcomed by a lady wearing a bath robe. No place to leave the luggage before check-in/after check-out....

Thank you for your comment. We understand your comments but don't forget this a family guesthouse with few rooms so it is impossible to have someone always at the front desk but there is always someone in the guest house working so it is only necessary to wait one minute in the front desk. About the security we have security...

I stayed this hotel two weeks ago. The staffs were v nice and helpful. In my original planning, I have booked a room for two nights. However, since my trip have been changed, I have to cancel one night booking. They didn't charge me any cost even I decided to cancel the second night booking. It is very considerate. As...

Residencial Monte Carlo is an amazing bargain of a hotel, situated a stones throw from Campo 24 de Agosto Metro which is served direct from Porto airport (30 min journey for about 2 euros), and only about a 10 minute walk from the city centre. Our room was spacious, had a balcony, great en-suite, good wi-fi, very user-friendly heating/aircon. Staff...

We stayed in this place at the beginning of October. We enjoyed our stay here, however the room which we stayed in did not have any windows and had quite a damp smell. That being said, we paid a very low price for our 4 night stay (and we were in the economy double) The shower was good and bed...

Thank you for your comment! In fact you stayed in one of our 3 economic bedrooms. As you said it is very cheap but the downside is that it has no windows. However it has air conditioning, private bathroom, good area and was fully renovated 3 years ago.
