    Such friendly and helpful staff. Always ready to recommend somewhere or help book a trip. The hotel is in a perfect central location. You can walk to all the main attractions from here. The beach is just a short tram ride. The rooms were spacious and spotlessly clean. The breakfast was great too.

    We stayed over the New Year (2019/2020) for 5 nights and struggle to find any fault in this guest house. Above all, the service provided by the three working in the reception area stands out at the very highest levels. From the moment we arrived, they were friendly, helpful and no request was too much effort. They made suggestions on places to visit, eat, drink and when bookings were needed, they would make all the necessary arrangements. As an example, nn New Years Day, they phoned around until they found a place for us to hire bikes. Every place recommended was great. And always welcoming everytime we got back to the guest house. A hot drink and a piece of cake or fruit was available. A truly relaxing experience. The location is perfeect for access to the river and main sites in the centre of Porto and less than 10 mins walk to the main train station. We would definitely return

    This was a great place in a great location! Good view and really nice staff! The breakfast is a good cold breakfast but the same every day. The room we stayed in with city view was large and beautiful and affordable. The only thing is that the place could use a few small things like new towels (not dirty just quite old), the shower fixture was a bit broken. These things are made up for with the hardworking kind staff.

    This is a very old property in the centre of the old town. There are no lifts but staff will help you with the stairs if you struggle. It's full of character and the rooms we had were huge, clean and airy. There's air conditioning for the night time - you probably don't want windows open at the front because of the noise from the nearby restaurants. The staff can't do enough to help you with anything you need, from checking train times to recommending a restaurant. They are extremely professional and friendly and by the time you leave you'll feel like one of the family.
