- Free Wifi
It's pretty old, and more than a little shabby, but if you want a no-frills base in Porto then this is a good bet. We were on the third floor, and there's no lift, but exercise is good for you. the bed was comfortable (though a bit on the short side) the shower was hot and decent strength, and the wifi worked fine, You can't expect more at that price.
IT's 10 mins walk from the metro, which some might not like, and the area round is a bit dead at night, but we managed to find some good bars and restaurants
the staff is friendly, but the room was cold and moist (imagine the crypt of a church, only w windows) w mold on the ceiling. no heating. cut my hand on the towel holder in the bathroom which has a sharp metallic egde. w mold cold and moisture, not even sure its healthy to stay. mb other rooms are better but mine was not fit for a hotel no matter which price.
Good location, in the city centre, on the way to the train station.
Decadent building and furniture, almost depressing.
Loud staff coupled with thin walls.
My room's window opened on an indoor space where staff dwelled (no privacy with the window open), with just a rooftop opening (not easy to freshen up the air).
The floor of the room wasn't very clean.
Some of the staff don't speak English at all, they just speak louder and louder in Portuguese.
Some of the staff are not friendly.
It is an ok residencial, not the newest place but fair enough. We had a room on the second floor with a private balcony, the room was a bit dusty and we could smell it, old beds, old furniture. The private bathroom was clean but the sink leaked from under, it clogged, and the shower head holder was also broken.
They make the bed and change towels every day.
The staff is attentive if you get to a hold on them.
Well located near bus station (Rede Expresso), main shopping street, grocery store like Mini Preço and Pingo Doce within 5 minutes walk and of course many cafés (try Lobito café next to bus station!!)
I stayed with my boyfriend while backpacking in North Portugal.
The room was not very clean, without heating and poor internet... But it's well located, near monuments and stations, all in all the price is fair...
