The Rex Hotel, Porto
Great Stay. Beautiful hotel. Clean and very comfortable. Surprisingly good for a small hotel with parking. I highly recommend.

Lovely service!
It's by no means a fancy hotel but your the cost we were very happy with our stay. Room was clean and comfortable. A little bit of a walk to the main sights, but we didn't think it was that bad. Anywhere you stay in Porto will have you walking up and down hills to explore anyway. Service was fantastic. Special mention to Jorge who went out of his way to help us and really turned our tough day around!! Thank you so much. Interesting old building too.

4 days in Porto
We came to Porto with great expectations and the City, it's inhabitants, food and drink didn't disappoint. We will be back.❤ As to the hotel, we prefer independent hotels to big chains. Once again we were not disappointed, for a 2 star hotel, we got a central location, about 15 mins from centre and majority of museum and points of interest. Lapa station round the corner , with all 5 lines passing through it is really convinient if yoy plan to travel further afield. The hotel Room was clean , bathroom was spacious and what I say a typical portuguese bathroom looked like. There is a huge wardrobe, confortable bed. I loved the period features in the room and troughout this charming hotel. We were on a budget , so got the cheapest room right opposite reception as were out early b4 8:30, noise was not a issue for us as we live in noisy busy area, but you may want to take ear plugs with you if you are a light sleeper or intend to sleep in late. To resume we loved our stay, the staff were really helpful and friendly. I even got my little historical tour of hotel.

Beautiful room - more than 2 stars for sure!
A very nice hotel in a truly gorgeous art-nouveau house! The room was apparently one of the newest ones opened and the door to the room is actually outside the main door of the hotel, right at the top of the stairs leading to the main entrance. This also means that the street noise is quite present in the room. The room was very nice, with an extremely comfortable mattress and a lovely bathroom. The ceiling was a masterpiece, with intricate carvings and patterns. The bathroom was built as a separate room into the room and featured a stunning shower with a very clean and comfortable bathroom. The concierge was lovely and very friendly, and we even got a small tour from the manager in the beautiful house. Additionally, two metro stations were only about 7 minute walk away, with a cafe pretty much next door. A wonderful stay all in all!

quiet & conveniently located
The hotel is in a quiet area, yet walking distance to downtown Porto, the Santa Catarina pedestrian & shopping street, and the main tourist attractions. The Trinidade metro station is also conveniently close by, although there is an an uphill stretch on the way from the station to the hotel. The hotel amenities were basic but clean. I was glad to have heating (through the AC unit), as the weather was still chilly at night. I was given a room in the basement, which was a bit of a letdown, because renovation works on the rest of the hotel started the day after I arrived. However, the works did not disturb me the least as I was usually out and about town when they were taking place. The wifi connection was good. The hotel staff were very helpful and gave me useful pointers on places to visit and where to eat nearby. Overall, I wouldn't mind returning to stay at this hotel after its facelift.
