Great value for money in the center of Porto
We booked a deluxe room, and loved the place: - Staff is incredibly friendly - Room was modern, clean and spacious - Daily breakfast is modest but has all you need, including fresh orange juice - Good location, 10 mins walk to city center We heard some of the other rooms weren’t as good, so I recommend paying a bit extra for the deluxe. Anyway, we had a fabulous time.

Good stay but read on….
Overall, it was a good stay. The downsides are no one at the front desk to ask questions and get help the majority of the time and breakfast starts at 8-8:30. Most tours and transportation occurs before this time so breakfast gets missed. They do not offer a to go breakfast bag like many hotels offer. The room and bed were fine.

Perfect place in Porto
Great location, actually very close to city centre and walking distance to most of the Porto’s attractions. Beautiful modern design, great customer service. Local supermarkets nearby, high class and locals restaurants are only 5 minutes distance. Bonus is the free tea, coffee and water 24 hours. Because I was struggling where to have my hot tea in other hotel room! Free hot water is a gem for tea obsessed traveler. Oh and the free self-laundry! We will come back for sure.

Nicely renovated city house.
Renovated building with an excellent design. Tasty breakfasts, friendly host and possibility to park your car nearby. It is within walking distance to the center, but remember, Porto is mostly on hills;) the only problem we had is "delux" room with no daylight. It is a room without window. The only window was in a bathroom with a glass door.
