Residencial Sol da Nave

Reviewed 5 July 2017

all the staff here are extra special, couldnt have asked for more attentive and friendly people, the outside doesnt look anything special but the original style interior is functional but interesting, the room was clean and suitable for a short break , everything you need is provided (wifi - TV in non Portuguese languages) except for a new pair of calf muscles - didnt realise how hilly Porto really is, I would stay here again if I ever returned to Porto - a fantastic hotel experience , the one and only complaint would be the noisy dog next door but if you have walked the hills you soon sleep

Room Tip: first floor has access to an outside seating area

Location was good and the staff were excellent, but being an old building in an old area, the hotel does need some TLC. Rooms were clean, wifi good. Neighbours were noisy!
Good transit links with a bus right outside and the metro a 10 minute walk.
Host very helpful providing maps and suggestions.
There are grocery stores close by and a small fridge in the room so we bought yogurt and croissants for breakfast.

Situated at a busy road, Sol da nave offers you a great parkingspot on the other side of the street (€6,00 per day). The very friendly owner welcomes you with his greatest smile. He helps you with your lugage upstairs. The rooms are simple but the shower and bathroom are superb! There is no breakfast served but look for a place called "paõdock" 2 streets away and they serve you the best breakfast and coffee. Did I already mentioned the friendly people? They are!!!

Situated about a fifteen minute walk from the Central district, room and bathroom were super clean. Bed was very comfortable. Room was on quite a busy street but the windows have wooden shutters to block the noise. The owner was very friendly and helpful. I had a very pleasant and enjoyable stay here.

We spent one week at Sol Da Nave in August 2016.It was a wonderful holiday with extreme comfort.

We were delighted with the service. Mr. John and his family are very kind, friendly and would do their best to help us. The room was really clean. we had access to a terrace with beautiful flowers.

The hotel is about 5 minutes from the city centre with a bus stop nearly in front of the hotel.
If you are looking for a cheap nice hotel then Residential Sol Da Nave would be best for you

Me and my fiancee stayed at the Sol da Nave in early October this year and had a great time. The hotel is less than a ten minute walk away from the Marques metro station, which itself is situated in a nice little inner city park, in which there is also an open air bar! The rest of the area immediately around the hotel and metro station is not especially interesting - a handful of shops, cafes and restaurants (and a church which is incongruously modern looking for Porto) - but it is nice enough.

The hotel is quite old fashioned, but by design rather than being tired and outdated. There was a large bath in the room with a good shower, a decent little fridge and a television with access to channels for many nationalities. We were at the back of the hotel and the view from the window was frankly not good, but that's a tiny complaint.

The room was cleaned, the bed tidied, and towels replaced every day, which was above and beyond what I would expect in a little city hotel, so thumbs up to the maid.

Quadruple thumbs up though to the fantastic gentleman who runs this place, he appears to be working for near enough 24 hours per day - he is at reception when you nip out for a coffee in the morning and he is serving behind the cute little bar behind reception last thing at night. His English isn't great (but, naturally, is better than my Portuguese) but he was genuinely helpful and approachable and really added something to the quality of our stay - one of the marks out of five is for him alone :)

Only slightly odd thing about the stay was that you had to leave your key at reception when you went out for the day, which struck me as a bit 1950's bed & breakfast in England...

I won't say too much about Porto itself other than that we had a great time in a very interesting city, but it's a city that I couldn't recommend to people with mobility problems - some of the hills are killer and the metro system, whilst great, doesn't get you absolutely everywhere.

Residencial Sol da Nave is a small, cheap family owned hotel in Porto. The owner is a very nice person that helps you in every situation although he's English is not perfect. Hotel is situated near bus stop that will take you to the city center every 10 minutes and about 10-15 minutes walk from metro station. Nearby you have a lot of pastries and small shops. If you are not fastidious and you are looking for a cheap place to stay in Porto this hotel is perfect to you.
