Very Good8.0
Cozy hotel in a comfortable neighborhood
Very helpful staff that made an excellent, local restaurant recommendation for dinner. Room was basic, beds were a bit hard, and there is a rooster in the neighborhood (which we noticed at 4am because our window was open - not as noticeable when the window was shut). Working class neighborhood but safe, very convenient to the subway to get to the city center. Nice to be away from other tourists.

Great hotel
My wife and I stayed here three nights and it was great: well priced, in a very good, quiet neighbourhood and convenient for public transport with the metro. We'd book again!

Small nice friendly hotel. About 15 minute walk into city centre. There is a metro which is very clean and cheap to use. Wouldn't drive around Porto as traffic chaos in centre. Quite hilly so if you have problems walking would get hotel in centre.Felt very safe walking about but heard that one tourist had money stolen from a pickpocket.

Poor but friendly hotel
Hotel is situated in a very poor neighbourhood, at some walking distance from the metro station (change 2 lines for the airport). In the evening we were reluctant to be out on the streets. And a little far from the touristic center. There's no hotel parking (you park on the streets or in a private parking place for money on the next street), no elevator (we had the room at the top floor and we had to drag the 3 trolleys up the stairs), small room but clean, not isolated (you can hear the neighbours). But it is cosy and friendly. And we spent most of time outside (to visit the city) so we were not too affected by the minuses.
