    Girl at reception was extremely helpful with tips about where to go in the city, how to get around and locations of the main tourist sites. Room a good size (we had the family room) and breakfast on the roof was great.

    Good

    Good location ! Hotel is situated very near of Metro Trindade (Conection to the airport and train station - Campanha). Very near of the Hotel (but not in front of the hotel what is also very important) there are many bars and clubs to go out. Very friendly staff. Good internet conection. On the last floor there is nice terrace for breakfast. It's better to pay a bit more and choice room with balcony.

    Internet is not free (3euros / hour). Simple breakfast.

    Exceptional

    It's unusual for me to write a hotel review, but this lovely hotel deserves a mention. Our room was clean and tidy. The staff at the front desk were very helpful with recommendations and genuinely wanted us to enjoy our time in Oporto. Calming and relaxing interior and, in my opinion, one of the best locations in Oporto, especially if you like to shop and visit all the interesting spots in the city. Breakfast at rooftop allow us to enjoy a unique view. All this... make this a home away from home. Absolutely worth the price!

    Location was good

    Hotel was too old. We had a room at the backside of the building, which had very small windows and almost no daylight. Breakfast was poor and rooms were very old-fashioned.

    Good position to visit the city

    No customer care oriented. Poor value of the money in case you have to add 10 euro per day to park 2 bikes in a understairs, not mentioned in the information of the booking. I have also called before booking and they did not mentionned it (they send me mail 3 hours before the check in ) Half dayly rate penalty in case of washing clothes in the room Suite at the first floor
