My boyfriend and I booked a room in the Residencial at the end of June, so that we would enjoy Porto's Festa de Sao Joao (which was great fun and real worth it, as well as doing all the wine tastings). When we got to the Residencial we rang the bell and the lady explained that the room had had... More

Small, double room, single use. The room has everything one might need for a comfortable stay: Double bed, good mattress-pillows, small flat-screen tv, fan, fast internet connection and everything is clean. The shower and toilet might be odd but are clean and more than enough for a budget hotel. This room is located on the 2nd floor and the property... More

Good location - not far from the metro station and the city centre (available on foot). The hotel staff nice though at first might give the impression of unkind. The rooms spacious and tidy with comfortable bed, desk, chair, TV set, fridge, kettle (coffe and tea bags for free). Bathroom with shower separate from the toilet in each room which... More

The hotel is just 1 minute from Faria Guimaraes metro station, 3-4 stations from the old city centre (Ribeira). It's not easy to find, as the building are numbered randomly (it seems so). Just go uphill from the Faria Guimaraes station and you'll find it on your left-hand side. The room was clean and well-equipped (en-suite bathroom with toiletries, double... More

The price and location is perfect. Subway really close by. Presence of the staff was very poor. Everytime we came to the hotel we had to ring a bell and had to wait until somebody would come from another house in the street. Small rooms, but clean. Shower was ok. No breakfast included.

This is a small hotel, with charming rooms. The rooms are colorful and cheerful. The manager was a lively cheerful woman, great fun. Breakfast is nice. The location is good, near a metro stop, and only about twenty minutes walk to town center. The only negative is that rooms in the front are noisy during the day from traffic but... More
