I chose Residencia Lis because almost everything else in Porto was booked out on the dates I had to go there for a scientific meeting. For the price I did not expect any luxury, just a small local hotel of reasonable standard. I was pleasantly surprised by what I got for my money. The staff is very friendly and informative, the free Wifi is working well, a reasonable breakfast is included, and the old city of Porto can conveniently be reached from the hotel's location by a bus that stops right in front of the hotel, or on foot by a 30 minutes walk. The area appears safe, too, even in the middle of the night. My (single) room was located right above the hotel's entrance, facing the road, and was quite noisy with the window open (but ok with the window closed) because of the traffic and the busses that run all night. The bed was good, the furniture was old but functional, and the bathroom was ok. The whole room, especially the carpet, was smelling a bit musty, but not so bad that it could ruin my (overall pleasant) experience. I would stay there again, especially for the price I paid (35 Euro per night). As to the overall rating, I would give the hotel a "good", but as this is not possible, I rate it as "very good" - but of course you have to take into account the category and the price, so "very good for the price" is maybe the fairest rating.
