The Portus Cale Hotel is a very clean and modern hotel which serves as a good value option in Porto.

The hotel is on Avenida da Boavista, a major street in Porto, filled with restaurants and shops in the vicinity. It is almost 4 kilometers away from the Ponte Luis I bridge. There is a public transit Metro station fairly close by (Casa da musica), about a 10 minute walk from the hotel.

The room was extremely clean, which started with a long hallway from the door to the bed area. This hallway served as a perfect place to park our suitcases.

Closet & storage space:
The closet had ample space and coat hangers for two people.

The bathroom also was ample, which included a bathtub. Counter space was a bit tight though, but there would be plenty of space if only one person was in the room.

Work Desk:
The work desk was wonderful as there was plenty of space to place many items.

Night Stand:
There were night stand on each side of the bed as well as electrical outlets which made charging our electronics very convenient.

The safe was an unexpected surprise. It is an additional 3 Euros per night which is essentially a lock cylinder rental. Note that there are two types of cylinders, one big and one small, so take a photo of the safe door's lock cylinder hole with your smartphone to know exactly which type of lock cylinder to ask for before going to the front desk to rent one.

Climate Control:
The climate control maintained its temperature quite well. Note that all the electricity is regulated by your room key. If you have to leave the room, which means taking your key, everything including the air conditioning will power off.

Exterior Noise:
Our room offered tremendous peace and quiet. We could not hear anything outside, in the hallways, or in the adjacent room.

The wi-fi worked without any issues.

The elevators are very small: only two people at a time with their luggage can fit. If you do not have anything with you, use the stairs. It is not like your typical hotel staircase but rather much more nicer (you will know what I mean if you use it).

The lobby is very open and full of natural light, with a bar area in the rear.

Breakfast offered a hot and cold buffet in a dedicated room on the mezzanine level. There was plenty of seating with the offerings worth the cost.

Check-in and Check-out:
Check in and check out was fairly smooth. The hotel can also arrange for excursions and airport transfers if required.

The Portus Cale is in a convenient location in Porto, but also away from all the tourist areas. As Porto is a compact city, it is fairly easy to get to anywhere in the city from this well-kept hotel.

It’s ok. First of all, I booked and got a confirmation for a room with a queen bed. I got 2 single beds. Not happy. Then, it is still warm in Portugal and the room is hot despite the A/C being on high and the lowest temperature. I am not overly impressed with the room. It is very basic. It is clean though, so it’s got that going for it.

So a friend and I stayed there for 2 nights. The second night we asked for advice on a fish restaurant so Miguel tells us to go to a place in an area called matosinho near the water very close to the port. First the area it’s in is very shady and the one street we came in on around the corner was simply stated , ugly. The buildings were in shambles and the area was dirty. Then we read the menu outside from a hard cover menu in the dining area outside and the prices were so high. The food might have been good but the prices were astronomical for the area. The menu is not posted outside luckily we happened to grab a hard cover one. Now, I know hotel concierges have deals with restaurants so they can eat for free or get special deals. This was a stupid move. Like I said the area was horrible and the prices too high. So we went back to the hotel area and found something reasonable. Now what makes matters worse. The next morning we had to kill some time before we took a plane at the airport. We read about Foz. A small seaside town with a fortress. Now this is where he should have recommended. The area is near a great neighborhood and this town was quaint and the restaurants were mostly reasonable. He could have showed off his area of Portugal by sending us for dinner in this town. Oh well.

We booked a long weekend at this hotel and were very impressed with it. First of all, the location is excellent. The metro station is about a 5-7 minute walk from the hotel and we never waited more than 3 minutes for a train! The machine system is easy to follow but we bought our tickets from the office in the station simply because there was never a queue. Everyone we approached had an excellent command of English which we found incredible. The hotel was modern and clean, the room was more spacious than I expected for a city hotel and the beds were very comfortable. For 6 euros we had a breakfast in the hotel which was a fairly standard affair, everything on offer was cooked well and was warm when it was meant to be! The reception staff were very helpful as was the barman in charge of the small bar on the ground floor. There are a few bars and restaurants en route to on the metro statio ( musica) and surprisingly, a small fairground nearby. Porto is a beautiful place with lots to see and if I get the chance to return I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again.
