Great value for the price. You could easily spend much more and get less in another hotel. Very clean, well maintained, and up to date. Quiet and comfortable room and a generally quiet hotel, even when full, in a quiet neighborhood and street. Excellent breakfast. Very helpful staff. Will stay there again if I revisit Porto.

8/10 Very Good

Hotel Cristal
The staff were excellent. The hotel had problems with bathroom drains but was clean and rooms spacious. The distance from the centre was very misleading - much more than 15mins The breakfast was disappointing. I left my phone charger but the hotel will not return it I have to arrange collection of it - disappointing response.

2/10 Poor

No complimentary water in the room unless you check with reception and have to specify that you are not buying water but requesting a promised complimentary water that you didn’t receive on the first night of your stay, otherwise, they will charge you naturally assuming you are trying to buy some water since you didn’t mention it at check-in because you should have received the water one way or another. They refused to admit that it was their mistake not to put a complimentary water in the room and claimed it was the guest who is misleading them. The first staff who checked me in said it should be on the table in my room. The second guy who assumed I wanted to buy a bottle of water said I should receive the complimentary one at check-in. Really funny. It feels like they are suspecting if I really didn’t receive the free water and they act like I’m trying to scam one small bottle of water from them. And it is 4-star hotel. And the room I booked was for two-people use since singles were sold out. And I can get only one small bottle of water only on the first night of my stay only by asking for it. Not even a second bottle or a large size. And they don’t even provide slippers for guests who do not have reservation for a suite. So I guess the eco-friendly is exclusively for guests who can’t pay for a suite.

Amazing hotel, in a quiet part in the central area. You can walk to major landmarks in 10-15mins, lovely staff - because of COVID the breakfast arrangements where different but I had mine brought to my room and the suite was just magical with 2 baths and a balcony. Very clean hotel.
