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,...

Good and comfortable hotel close to the subway station. Very friendly staff. We got a room with 2 beds that were really fantastic, made of heavy wood. Dining room is too small and breakfast here doesn't iclude hot dishes like bacon or scrumbled eggs.

Situated in the old town, near the metro, ten minutes walk to the main line station. Very friendly, helpful staff. Rooms very clean, clean sheets and towels every day. A good selection for breakfast served from seven thirty to ten. A city with beautiful buildings. The train station is really worth a few photos! I would recommend a train ride...
