We drove to Porto with no hotel in mind and chose Istay which was a good, affordable, well-located spot to see the city from, located across from a parking lot which charged 10€ per day. That can't be beat! There are several small eateries right near by and sites and transportation within walking distance. We liked it a lot! Friendly...

Stayed at the last floor of this hotel in Porto. The front desk staff were very friendly, no negative comments to them. But the room where we stayed was a sauna (last floor) and very poorly insulated, the noise of the street was very uncomfortable. When I tried to open the window to get some fresh air discovered it was...

Simple and clean hotel, but in a very noisy area. Bed was too flat and room service left our door open after cleaning our room. We came back at 9:00pm to find it open. Nothing was taken, but it was very alarming. Staff members were very friendly and helpful, especially Phlippe who helped us out the most. Would not recommend...

We had two different rooms in this hotel because we went to Aveiro in between and both were good. Perfect location, walking distance from Bento station and Porto center. Yes, it is not a very cosy hotel but you will be outside, exploring Porto! It is clean, the bathroom is clean and very strong (free) wifi, also in the rooms....

Small room, fiberglass bathroom, very practical, no luxury. Fair price in termos of Europe. Breakfast not included. For brazilians, It is equivalente to IBIS hotels. Porto is a beautiful place for walking despite some steep slopes, so one may not spend much time in a hotel room. No room service but lots of small snackbars and shops around. Very polite...

I stayed here for 5 nights. It's a simple hotel with all the basic needs in your room. It's clean. The room is cleaned each day. The wifi doesn't work that great quite a few times. Once I wanted to call the reception to inform them about the wifi not working so I picked up the phone and discovered that...

I stayed out here out of necessity not out of choice, and if I were you I'd do the same. My wife and i were given a room next to the reception desk which usually means an interesting night, but this was far and above interesting. It was downright annoying. 1 am: someone decides that banging on the door as...

I stayed here out of necessity, not out of choice, and if I were you I'd do the same. I was given room 0.4 which is right next to the reception desk, so I was already braced for what usually ends up being a more interesting night than usual. However, someone at the reception desk decided that playing songs as...

A very modern boutique hotel with very reasonable rates! It is also very convenient to get around to places of interest like 10 walk to Ponte de Luis, the Cathedral and downtown district. And it's right next to the bus station that has buses coming from the south of Porto. The staff are friendly, speaks good English and very honest!...
