We enjoyed our Porto experience very much and this small family owned hotel made our stay there a very pleasant one. The owner, Don Jose and his son made for a very welcoming, almost "homelike" reception that made us feel as we were visiting with relatives. The room was ample, clean and serviced every day. The location made for a...

Owners are really nice people and their son helped us and gave us directions to where to go and what to see. Our room was super clean and it had air conditioner and little refrigerator. We had a car and we could park right in front of the residence. It's close to the center of Porto and you could walk...

I liked this family owned hotel since I got a very good vibe from them and they were interested in helping me with where to eat, maps, etc. A very nice portuguese family who likes service and people. My room was clean and equipped with AC as expected. Location is 25 min walk to downtown/uber for almost no money. Area...

This quaint B&B is perfectly situated to reach all attractions. 15 mins bus ride into Porto centre and the river Douro and a mere 30mins to the nearest beach. Bus stops are within 5 minutes of the residence and all busses have electronic signs telling you the name of each stop so brilliant for the non bus travellers like us,...

Clean and nice hostel to stay a few nigths. Jose and his son were really friendly and tried to be helpful. I like heating in the room, especially during the cold nights, and quiet around the hostel. Ufortunately the hostel is pretty far away from metro station. Moreover communication was hard beacause we don't know spanish and Jose doesn't know...

We stayed 3 nights on 3rd floor in large, well-furnished, clean room. Jose & his son are very helpful, despite language difficulties, & operate a 24 hour door service for security. We felt that a modern card-key system, or even just supply of front door keys would have been far less troublesome. Good recommendations for very cheap & cheerful local...

Room was very clean and comfortable to stay. Wifi was fast enough. Location is a bit far from a center of old town. Please note that when I stayed this hotel, an owner didn't accept me to pay a fee with a credit card.
