A very modern boutique hotel with very reasonable rates! It is also very convenient to get around to places of interest like 10 walk to Ponte de Luis, the Cathedral and downtown district. And it's right next to the bus station that has buses coming from the south of Porto. The staff are friendly, speaks good English and very honest!... More

Good hotel if you search something basic and cheap, but still ok qua room and location. Bathroom floor is a bit weird, most of the times the whole floor gets wet if you shower. And I really don't like those curtains in the shower. But ok, that is a detail. In general it is a good hotel for the money... More

Continental breakfast in the cellar with good rolls: functional but depressing atmosphere. Yes you can put the AC off. Yes the bathroom is some sort of plastic unit installed as a whole, but it works with sufficient warm water and good drainage (4th floor). Desk is open 24h and the elevators works. Wifi was ok. Good connection with busses and... More

Entering in your room you may feel if it is a room or a metallic chamber. Only a bed and a rack and a chair and that's it. Neat, clean, spacious, AC blaring on full, near to Sao Bento train station (Comboio) and Metro station as well. Breakfast with limited variety in basement the hotel does not have anything special...

Me and my boyfriend really enjoyed our stay at iStay Hotel in Porto. Location of the hotel is just perfect - few minutes walking to main Porto's attractions. Hotel has only two stars, so we cannot expect red carpet waiting for us. The room was clean everyday, fresh linen and towels. Big bed and air conditioning. I wish the room... More

The windows can't open up, the room smells of perfume and it fells like being in a spaceship/camper. Not good for claustrophobic people or people allergic to perfume. The hotel has a nice location and the staff are sweet.

This hotel is in excellent location. The location is the best bit. The breakfast buffet is average.(one type of ham and cheese). No eggs which I'm quite disappointed with. The room are clean and comfortable. The bed is very comfy. Staff is nice.

This place was fine, but had no public areas whatsoever to relax in. Poor wifi reception in rooms. The hotel is well located, and a good buffet breakfast was on offer. However, we saw another hotel for the same price nearby, with access to garden, public rooms and more central to shops and restaurants. As we were only staying for... More
