    Breakfast only good thing about this hole

    Furniture old, mattress extremely old and uncomfortable (my wife slept on pillows on floor instead of in bed), bathroom very small, shower space tiny (would be unusable for people of heavier build. Hotel does not have any parking, on arrival was told to park on street. When that proved impossible was directed to a nearby parking station.

    If you want to know Porto, but do not want much to pay for the hotel, the Rio Grande is right. 5 minute walk from the subway, 10 minutes from popular tourist attractions.

    Breakfast room is very small, may have to wait for your turn. Room facilities for some time already seeking the restoration.

    Very nics, very polite, value for money, good breakfast

  • Couple

    (1) The room was clean and the breakfast was good. Basically you get everything you pay for. (2) The staff was always helpfull. (3) it's close to the subway so you'll be in the city centre within 15 minutes or so.

    if you're a light sleeper, bring some earplugs as the hotel can be a little noisy, mostly depending on your fellow guests. But this is a minor thing not only for this hotel.

  • Couple

    Very nice staff, good location (very close to Metro) and pleasant walk to river and downtown. Room was simple, but clean and pleasant. Breakfast was simple but good with enough variety for three mornings. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

  • Older travelers

    Very friendly staff; close to a metro station. The hotel guests seemed to have been very nice also. A very good value for your money.

    To enter the hotel you had to ring at the main entrance even in the day time.

    Very nice and helpfull personnel. Hotel is about 150 m from metro station bound for city centre. Personnel speak english and french.Very good breakfast and free access to internet thru 2 computers.

  • Couple

    We really liked this hotel. The room was really clean, we got a lot of towels and it was quite modern. The room was rather small, but this didn't matter for us, because we only slept over there. Also the staff was very helpfull and friendly.

  • Couple

    Quiet location, short walk to the metro line. The staff were very helpful

    Breakfast was very 'light' and the bedroom had an overpowering smell of bleach/cleaning agent which mad my wife a little ill.

    Close to the city center and subway. Also a nice brakefeast

    They dont have elevators, so if youre on 2nd floor prepare to carry luggage upstairs.

    I liked the Hotel's location - it's near to the metro station and it's located at the city center. Hotel staff was very friendly.

  • Couple
    8.8

    Good location (near old city center and close to metro station), clean room, helpful staff

    Would be perfect if the room and bathroom were a bit bigger and with a decent tv

  • Single
    8.2

    The person in the receprion was great ! Location near the metro and bus station or even if you need to do a 15 minute walk to the center is OK. Breakfast various and good to start the day.

    Small bathroom (but clean and usefull anyway)

  • Couple
    8.8

    Very friendly reception, clean room and well located, nice breakfast, excellent for its price.

    Some buildings in the neighborhood are abandoned, which made us feeling not so good.

  • Group of friends
    9.2

    Very clean and family ambiance

    They should add french channels on tv choice like : euronews in french, france 24. they are free and there are many french speaking people coming at this hotel. Actually there are no french speaking channel
