We stayed in this hotel in our first visit to Oporto. On one hand, the hotel's location is excellent, very near to some of the main attractions in Oporto. We found the room clean, spacious and the bed comfortable, although not soundproof at all. On the other hand, we found some of the staff very unfriendly towards us and we don't know exactly why. As an example, the first day we arrived I went to talk with a young guy at the front desk to ask him about the breakfast service that the hotel sells at 10 euros pp. I asked him what is in the breakfast and he said "continental breakfast" when I try to get more info, he just said "continental breakfast". Then I asked him if we can go and see what was in the buffet very paying, he said no in not a nice tone. We have never experienced something like this before, normally the staff at the front desk go into detail because the hotel is interested in selling the service. In other establishments they have a leaflet detailing the breakfast offering. A bad day could happen to anyone, but it just happens that few minutes before our exchange the same staff member was happily given plenty of details to some French guests about the city. I found his change of demeanor odd. This is one example. I have my own conclusions about what could have trigger this behavior after reading some of the bad reviews of this hotel.

I don’t understand how this hotel gets good ratings and reviews. Mind you, the hotel is in a very good location (close to bus route), however there are some interesting people that were hanging out around it. The rooms are below standard. Walls are banged up, bathroom unfathomably small. You must squeeze yourself against the sink or around the door and toilet in order to fill close the door. Old rooms with new furniture that isn’t even nice. Rooms were not even clean. We saw bed bugs and left immediately without even staying the night. Staff was nice about it and we got all our money back. Honestly shocked I originally payed $180 CAD per night. I’m so glad we moved to the hotel right across the street. Don’t stay here.
