“Excellent piece of business”
Reviewed 30 August 2011

Last time I visited Porto, I've stayed in this hotel. It's a simple and clean hotel inside Porto, with minimal services.
The rooms are clean, but small and there is no restaurant in the hotel. You can eat a frozen pizza, by buying it at the reception and putting it on the microwave hoven that is available in the hotel atrium.
It's not near the city centre and you will need transportation (probably taxi) to reach the city center.
However, it's probably virtually impossible to arrange a cheaper hotel with this conditions (clean, tidy and quiet) in Porto.
Private car parking spaces are available if you pay a fee but you have an excellent parking lot in front of the hotel for free.

Room Tip: Book in the internet and you will get better rates

We (my wife and I) have been there just for one night. the hotel is very nice. it is not in the heart of the city , so you need a car. I didn't use public transport there but I believe there should be a bus line passing there. the rooms are clean and the staffs are kind. we didn't have breakfast because it was not included in our room.

Thanks for leaving your testimonial about your staying with us.

You're completely right. There is more than one place where you can reach public transportation nerby.

We hope to welcoming you again on your next visit to Porto.

veeery goood, with a modern design, cool breakfasts which are available 24 hours in a bar, cost 5 euros...))) there is a free wi-fi connection!! every day cleaning. i really enjoyed it. the only thing - the beds are twin-beds... so if u are a couple which wants a romantic weekend, maybe it's better to get some other hotel with a more comfortable bed...the rest is SUPER FINE!!!!

I stood one night at Star Inn Hotel and was very surprised with the quality of the hotel. I took my car, so I don't know anything about transportation, but it was very clean, with great bed and nicely furbished. I would go back again without thinking.

Good ONLY if you have a car or want to be close to the airport. This place is very isolated, although you can find restaurants, banks if you walk a good distance. The lounge/dining areas are very uninviting. They should offer a free breakfast and not be cheap about it. I switched to another hotel in the center of Porto after 2 nights in this Siberia location.

This is supposed to be the first low-coast hotel in Portugal, great hotel, very clean the workers are very nice and friendly, the location and the food is are not so great. But if can find a few good restaurants nearby. Go to Churrasqueira Portuguesa da Prelada, GREAT restaurant.

On the bright side: Good price/quality relationship, clean, excellent accessibility, new restoration/ construction, and finally a pair of clean towels everyday (I read a review that stated that you'd only receive one towel for your stay).

On the downside: the rooms on the main entrance side are faced to a motorway and even having double glazed windows, you could still hear the engines revving by.
