Hotel Grande Rio
Ranked #74 of 168 Porto B&B and Inns
Reviewed 11 March 2012

Couple with a 10month old baby. We stayed there 5nights.

We had a very good stay in this hotel.
The hotel is not very central but just next to the tube station so perfectly fine. You can also walk to the center.
It is clean and they clean the room every day.
It has a bath which is conveniont when travelling with a baby.
It is a cheap hotel so do not expect luxoury but it is good for this money.
Very nice breakfast. Very kind waiter. We could also use a kitchen to boil a water or clean baby stuff.
Nice helpful staff.
A small grocery just across the street.

Weaknesses:
- you smell some of cigaretes in the floor in a non-smoking part of the hotel (not a big problem)
- the double room was not too big for 3 of us but for a couple is enough
- we got a room on the groundfloor so we do not have to carry a babytrolley but you have windows to the street which is not a problem,you get used to it very quickly but there is no a special view from the window.
- you hear neighbours going to the bathroom

These all points are facts but for us it was not a problem. I am a pretty light sleeper but the window to the street ets were no problem to me.

We stayed at the hotek for 1 night at February 2012 with my friends. The hotel is good, furniture is new, flat TV, air condition, The room is small and there is no hair dryer. The breakfast was good: ham, chees, bread etc. There is no lift at the hotel. The parking is about 500m away from the hotel. I can recomenr this hotel for 1 or 2 night stay.

Pros: Good location, less than 10 mintutes from centre. Staff is nice and friendly, all of them speak english. Room and bathroom was clean. Breakfast was good and with wide choise of dishes.

Cons: Room on the first floor near the reception is very noisy. No parking nearby.


Excellent value for money, better than many of 3 star hotels.

Room Tip: Do not choose room near receprion.

I agree on everything what was told about this hotel before - it's lovely, nice, perfectly clean hotel. Rooms have only basic things and are small, but when you eat your breakfast, you will forget about your small room (see room tips below). Hotel staff is more then friendly, they were glad to help us in everything.
Location is a little far from the downtown, but there are some pluses: hotel is in quiet location, and only 15 minutes (1 km) walking to downtown and close to 2 metro stops.
Rooms don't have enough soundproofing, so be prepared you may hear your noisy neighbors (if any ;)).
There is free wi-fi in every room, but its quality depends on how far your room is from the lobby. We stayed on quiet 3rd floor with nice view on a church from the window, but Internet connection was not good at all in the room.
In general I would say: Excellent price to quality ratio.

Room Tip: If you are going to use Internet in your room (free wi-fi), then it's better to choose a room on...
