Hotel is a few minutes from the Metro station which has a direct line to the airport. The staff were very accommodating, giving us rooms next to each other which meant and upgrade on one of the rooms. Breakfast was basic but adequate. Room was clean but pillows were very lumpy and towels very old. The TV had quite a...

From Lisbon to Porto it was easy to travel, the trains are really good, clean. The Sao Bento train station in Porto is really nice, a taxi from the station to hotel costs 8 euros but if you want you can also go by foot, the hotel is not so far from the train station. The room was amazing, I...

Good location, very close to metro. About 15 minutes downhill to the river (but via the main shopping street, which was a plus for us). We never walked back up, but got metro/taxis, all very reasonable. We didn't actually notice very many hotels right in the city centre, so I'd imagine the ones there are are more expensive. We had...

First the good points. The hotel is very close to a metro station and is within walking distance of the city centre (10 minutes) and buses. Staff were very helpful and Wi-fi worked first time. Although small, the room was very clean with firm but comfortable beds. Very comfortable lounge and a separate bar. Now to the disappointing bits. The...

The place is a good value, clean, friendly staff and centrally located. Pros: metro station 1 block away, climate controlled rooms, attentive staff, wifi everywhere, double exterior windows to eliminate street noise completely, Porto is small so you're -15 mins walking from absolutely everything. Cons: walls are a little thin- minor noise from adjacent rooms but not a deal breaker,...

I spent 4 days in this hotel with a group as part of our trip through Portugal. Hotel is on excellent location in the center of town near the main shopping street of Santa Catarina with many shops, restaurants, shopping centers… The rooms are very unusually decorated. Breakfast is below average. All in all a very decent city hotel for...
