Good and comfortable hotel close to the subway station. Very friendly staff. We got a room with 2 beds that were really fantastic, made of heavy wood. Dining room is too small and breakfast here doesn't iclude hot dishes like bacon or scrumbled eggs.

Pros: Great Location Price Friendly staff breakfast is served Cons: Our specific room (Family room) was right next to the elevator and rather noisy. make sure your room is far away from the elevator The double bed was comfortable but the single beds are hard as rock. I suppose kids don't really notice these things. Overall we were happy with... More

Situated in the old town, near the metro, ten minutes walk to the main line station. Very friendly, helpful staff. Rooms very clean, clean sheets and towels every day. A good selection for breakfast served from seven thirty to ten. A city with beautiful buildings. The train station is really worth a few photos! I would recommend a train ride... More

Receptionist extremely helpful. Breakfast was good.Room was a good size, but needed to be updated as beds were hard and squeaky. Shower was awful. It was close to the metro and 15 minute walk to the River. It was right in the heart of the shopping mall.

We found the hotel easily enough and then tried to park in their car park . Most ( in our experience ) are tricky on the continent but this is a dandy . If your car is larger than a fiesta forget it even then think twice the multicoloured wall stripes tell many a tale of woe. The hotel though... More

Good hotel, comfortable rooms, can easy walk to centre and the river. Parking downstairs is quite small. Take care. They have a 2nd parking somewhere for bigger cars. Staff is friendly and very helpful.

The hotel is dated but that suited us. Breakfast was OK but was lacking a hot dish or two. The location is excellent for shopping and the Bus/Metro. Our room had a balcony so the fresh air was wonderful for sleeping. The street is very busy but with the windows closed it is sound proof.The shopping centre has great little... More

This hotel is very far from what the pictures shows. The rooms are very old, the bathrooms old and dirty, the bed is horrible, unconfortable pillows. The service, at least, is kind, they changed our first room, but it does not solve the problem of the bad rooms. Breakfast ok.

The location was the only problem with this place. It is a 20 minute walk to the Douro and the waterfront. Not a terribly long way from the centre of the city but a little further out than some might want. Very friendly service, clean rooms, decent breakfast, nice bar.
