A good surprise from the beginning: I had booked a bed in a 6 bed dormroom and I got a single bedroom for the same price, and the room was really nice. They also offered me to have breakfast on my arrival even though I was a bit past the end time. I really liked the Arabic atmosphere with tapestries...

Me and my girlfriend, stayed one hour. :) Hygiene was not up to par. Which is a critical success factor even for economical based end rooms. At first we thought it was weird to be lead to the basement, by the owner, but then it got weirder, we had a fitness equipment in the room. Why?!? Then hair in the...

I spent 2 nights at Porto Riad Guesthose and I could not wait to leave. Very nice oriental decorations and stuff, but dirty. My room had this very funny smell that I have no idea where it came from, but it persisted. The window was so old that one rainy day when I arrived there was a little pool of...

Porto riad is a very nice guesthouse. Staff was very friendly and the breakfast was very nice. The outdoor area was very cosy. The guesthouse is very close to downtown. Would definitely stay there again.

I chosed this guest house for a relaxing weekend in Porto with my partner, mainly for the nice location (10mins by feet from city center in a quiet zone with a lot of parking spots) and for the theme of the place (north african style). And I was amazed when I arrived: the staff was very kind, talkative and warm....

It's an old charming building in a nice Maroccan decoration but also know it has some inconvinience. In the evening the lights went out and no wifi for 2 hours. This happens often... It's noisy because of the wooden floors and the noise outside (street and disco) The kitchen is really small and old stuff. Breakfast is provided. Basic but...

Everything about this hotel is just horrible! Some rooms in the basement have no windows, and others are so loud because of the people in there and the street... It's dirty, mouldy and... just horrible :/

I stayed in this hotel in October 2014., and because fo the reviews and pictures here I expected a great little budget hotel. Instead I got a stuffy moldy room in which clothes did not dry, they actually got wet from the humidity. Everything creaks, the plumbing from the rooms above is whooshing next to your head the whole night,...

This hotel was just an awful experience I would like to forget ASAP. 1 - The hotel is built in the "Arabic" or "Moroccan" whimsical style, but it's actually to cover the fact that it's half-finished and dirty. The rooms are awfully built. 2 - They put us in a -1 floor room with no windows anywhere... They have a...
