Arriving at night, the first impression might be that of a cheap and decadent hotel in line with the architectual style of Oporto, but once we where assigned two apartments in the building opposite the frontdesk, the opinion change completely. Full equiped apartments with two rooms ensuite bathroom and full kitchen, tv. Very clean and in order. The apartment on... More

We were a group of 5 people and were supposed to stay all together in the same room, but when we arrived the staff proposed us to stay in a real apartment with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, for the same price. We really appreaciated this proposal and were not disappointed. Apartment was clean and everything was OK. If I... More

Simple rooms, not very cozy, but ok for an overnight stay. The lady in the reception was very helpful, she asked for how long we were going to stay, than with... More

BUT, you know that feeling, "it was so little money when I booked, what is it going to be like?" Well it was a friendly greeting... More

Stayed here recently. Like one of the reviews below has intimated, it was cheap, but has some serious limitations. Primarily, the stink from the drain in our double room ensuite. It was clean and - apart from a very creaky bed - acceptable. But the stink from the drain in the toilet eventually drove us out. It wasn't that the... More

The good bits - staff were friendly, the room was spotlessly clean, the bed was very comfortable, the balcony overlooked a quiet courtyard and when I asked for a hairdryer it wasnt a problem. It was close to a metro station. The not so good bits - no door, not even a curtain on the ensuite bathroom door nor was... More
