This hotel is very far from what the pictures shows. The rooms are very old, the bathrooms old and dirty, the bed is horrible, unconfortable pillows. The service, at least, is kind, they changed our first room, but it does not solve the problem of the bad rooms. Breakfast ok.

The location was the only problem with this place. It is a 20 minute walk to the Douro and the waterfront. Not a terribly long way from the centre of the city but a little further out than some might want. Very friendly service, clean rooms, decent breakfast, nice bar.

Hotel San Jose is well located in the heart of the city-centre with a bustling shopping district and metro station 1 min away. People travelling via train from Lisbon can arrive here seamlessly through the metro post a short ride. There are plentiful food and shopping options - the river is a 15 min walk away and the main square...

I spent a week at the Sao Jose hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful if somewhat limited in English. It was an easy pickup for tours and always a downhill walk to the historical areas with just a few dollars for a taxi back. The shopping area is only a few blocks away as is the big Mercado...

Excellent budget hotel in the heart of Porto's shopping district. Easy access to metro and a nice 20 minute walk to the Waterfront. Very painless check in and out. All amenities including free WIFI worked a treat. Breakfast was a simple tasty affair with plenty of fresh bread and fruit, I even liked the coffee!! Our room was simply furnished...

This is a lovely hotel. We had a family room which was more like two adjoining rooms with no door so we could sleep in a different area to the children. Staff were very helpful and efficient. We left before breakfast started but I asked the night before, and they opened it 15 minutes early so that we could eat...

I stayed at this hotel for 9 nights and enjoyed my stay very much! For me that most important requirements form an hotel are being quiet, comfortable, clean and having an efficient and helpful staff. In all those parameters that hotel is a perfect 10 out of 10! I really appreciated the fact that despite arriving as early as 9:00am,...

Relatively quiet location, but hotel itself is not very soundproof. I booked a room with double bed, but when arrived, there was only room with twin bed available. It wouldn't mind that, but when lying in bed, i couldn't sleep at all, because every couple of minutes there was a sound like someone has dragged a massive wooden table around....
