    Brilliant location, friendly and very helpful staff, and comfortable modern rooms. If you’re sensitive to noise then request a room at the back of the building as the road at the front can be noisy.

    Great hotel, We got a map, a phone and lots of information when we arrived. Room was great but we noticed a few hairs on the back of the bathroom door.

    Gem of a guesthouse in a lovely city

    Beautiful guest house, well located for a city trip around Porto - an incredible city! The rooms and common areas are wonderfully decorated and clean and stylish, breakfast is simple (toast / cold meats / fruit / cereal) but plentiful. Theres even a terrace at the back to enjoy a coffee and book after breakfast which gets great morning sunshine. Would 100% recommend this as a B&B for a city break and we’ll be booking back in again in the future. Also easy to get to on the light rail from the airport.

    A lovely stay in Porto

    It was a lovely hotel and we were made to feel very welcome. We were given a complimentary breakfast on arrival and given access to our room well before the advertised time.

    The staff were very helpfull and the rooms were unique- bathroom was large and had a beautiful tiled floor. Bed was very comfortable. When we left it was raining hard and Anna, who was at the front desk that morning, actually escorted each of us to our cab across the street with an umbrella. Very thoughtful. Overall a charming guest house!

    We didn’t stay in this place, they relocated us to an apparent that was ok but the bathroom shower was mouldy, they really need to scrubber the bathroom, the soap dispenser was almost out of the wall, to use the washer machine we had to clean the softener dispenser that was all black mouldy! Don’t know was wrong in Porto but seems that cleanesty is not priority, completely disappeared!!
