Pretty decent for the price of a twin bed suite. in the university area so lots of young people around and close to restaurants and bars. tv in the room was a plus.

Almost like a hotel. Very clean. Very good standard. Room was cleaning every day. Nice bathrooms in the room. The only minus was no kitchen. But really value for the money. I think the best room condition during my trip.

Es un hotel familiar con un trato muy acogedor. Las habitaciones están muy limpias. El desayuno buffet muy correcto, sencillito pero bien...La conexión wifi funciona perfectamente y gratuita. Está perfectamente ubicado para salir de compras por Santa Catarina, para salir de bares ya que esta a 5 minutos de la rue Galería de París y Cándido dos Reis...con sus preciosos bares..Está un poco más alejado de la playa pero con el tranvía se puede realizar un paseo a orillas del Duero. Volviendo al hotel, nos gustaría destacar su hermoso jardín con zona solarium donde poder relajarse en a tumbona y tomar el sol con unas cervecitas....Tienen una ducha con agua caliente solar que es perfecta para refrescarse mientras se toma el sol...La propietaria lo cuida con mucho esmero diariamente, lleno de flores y frutos...En el corazón de Oporto un rinconcito muy tranquilo. Totalmente recomendable. Hemos pasado unos días preciosos y volveríamos a alojarnos sin duda allí. Jorge y Ana de Valladolid.
