I really enjoyed stay in S Garbriel Hotel, it's located in super location, you can basicly get everywhere in city center by foot. Metro is very close, around 3 min walk. What's more, there are a lot of authentic and cheap Portugeese restaurants. Room was big, clean but could be better. In overall, hotel is old-fashioned, dont expect anything fancy....

If you're after luxury, then I suggest you book and pay for a luxury hotel. This is a budget hotel with a budget price tag, but it also has some excellent features that places it above other hotels. 1) location!!! It is one street back from the 'heart of Porto' 2) free wifi 3) free breakfast 4) free, secure parking...

Not the most up-to-date accommodation, but a great central location and friendly hosts. Breakfast was simple but more than adequate, with an open-air terrace; there was secure off-street parking and great flexibility about how long we used the parking space the next day. I would stay here again, and recommend to a friend.

First impression when I got to the "hotel" was: well, the receptionist doesn't seem really happy. There's a couple of receptionists who change shifts constantly and only one old man is nice and puts on a a smile sometimes. Second impression: what kind of prison is this? (the room). It feels really suffocating to be inside the room. The shutters...

We have stayed there for 3 nights and were fully satisfied. If you intend to spend some time in hotel during the day, or looking for some luxury things, it is not for you. But if you need room just to sleep after saturated entertaining program than it might be attractive. As advantages I would mention Location (15 minutes’ walk...

Chose this hotel for the price, location and off street parking for my bike. Although the hotel has seen better days it was exactly as we expected. clean and tidy, decent sized rooms and garage underneath. The staff were extremely helpful, giving us good directions to the sights providing information for our short stay. WIFI was only good downstairs near...

We wanted a reasonable Hotel in the centre of Oporto with free parking, not an easy task. We found this little gem which is run by the kindest and most helpful couple to please and insure the happiness of their customers. Clean and very adequately fitted out I would recommend this place and would happily stay here again.

Warning - This hotel is sold as a four star hotel by Hotwire. At best it is a one star hotel. You will be very disappointed if you expect a four star hotel. Damp, smelly and cracks in the walls. Dirty carpets and towels.

I have nothing against this hotel or its staff. It is a two-star hotel at a two star price. It was probably quite a nice hotel in the 1960's but very little seems to have been done to maintain it in at least a decade. That being said, staying in this hotel almost ruined a romantic get-away for my girlfriend...

Simple hotel with great location, free parking, good breakfast, free wifi, clean, staff very friendly and helpful. Of course it is not brand new but for the price we paid we thought it was very good value. We would definitely stay again in this hotel when we come back to Porto!
