Location, friendly staff
Dated furniture, poorly working shower, lack of air-conditioning, monotonous breakfast, lack of free WiFi
Room very very very basic. Maybe there are others better. Wi-fi not free and not working.
Noisy if you have the street side room Jet in bath was not cleaned
Well managed, very clean, good location. Not luxurious but excellent value for money.
Small room and dark. Wi fi cost extra but at least it was a strong signal
Simple, inexpensive, clean, and quiet. Good value for money.
The hotel is within walking distance of the train station and the metro. The staff are on duty 24 hours and there is a bar to get a drink after a long day out. The room was clean and reasonably well appointed, though quite old. There is a charming lounge with a balcony where you can get a nice view of part of the city at night. There are restaurants and shops nearby and it is also very close to the tourist centre. There is a breakfast included.
The staff were not all capable of speaking English very well. The hotel was strangely dark in the public areas. The fact that there is a huge bidet in the bathroom was weird.
Great central location. Friendly helpful staff
nearest hotel from sao bent station.
elevator is only one. a darkend corridor.
Poor breakfast - bread, cheese and ham, and juice, nothing else; Small rooms and very old furniture Tiny bathroom, not clean, and impossible to regulate water temperature - either burning hot or freezing water Right next to church - the bell feels like it's inside your room..
With an excellent location, relaxed atmosphere, especially at breakfast
Urgent need of renovation and cleanliness is not at a sufficient level
The hotel is very close to everything, clean with friendly staff and the breakfast was simple but OK.
The bathroom was a bit doggy, the view from the room wasn't the most beautiful either
The location is very close from the station. Also, the front is very kind, and they speak several languages(English, French, Spanish).
Location, the oldschool design, fresh orange juice for breakfast
The staff: they were unhelpful. Polite, but cold and disinterested if you get this attitude. Despite ordering double bed via Booking.com we got two separate beds. When we complained we were told that in the this hotel they always join beds to make them double and because we booked late they could only do it for us a day later. But next day we had glimpses of other rooms and there were plenty rooms with proper double beds! The bathroom in our deluxe room was very small and the hydromassage bathtub was broken. This hotel needs proper cleaning and redecoration and the prices should be lower for what it offers. I would not recommend it, maybe only to those who like art deco shabby chic.
First of all we were given a room with three beds that were not been made up, the towels were used and on the floor, lots of rubbish in the bin and a very dirty room. Then we were given another room with four beds, what a dirty room, to much to explain here. both these rooms were on the upper floor, the lift did not go to this floor. It seems that the lower floors were not so bad as the walls of the coridors were nice and clean and the breakfast room was quite nice. My friend took fhotos of the room we had and I would not like someone else to experience what we did. They asked us to go out so they could clean the room but not even then was it clean This spoiled our whole weekend and I was very embarresed as I had an American lady from Nato with me
it's and old and really interesting building
The location is great
jaded staff, poor quality room
Staff were excellent Room was clean
De luxe room was same as standard. Bathroom very dated, shower not very good, stains on bath. Toiletries supplied were very poor.
Location is great Clean room
Staff was OK Breakfast was not good at all. They don't even allow you to take some water out of the breakfast room! No wi-fi and super expensive to buy
The hotel location is just perfect - very close to Praça de Liberdade, two metro stations and S. Bento train station. The Cathedral is in a walking distance, as well as Ponte Luis I (which offers wonderful panoramic views!). Good breakfast, great price, interesting hotel interior.
We were given a small room although we had reserved a "spacious deluxe double room", and there was a strong smell of some chemical (probably bleach) in the room. Bathroom needs some renovation, but it's ok for the price we paid. Many hotels in Porto don't even have private bathrooms.
Location is the key to staying at the Peninsular, what it lacks in comfort can be overlooked if you are only staying for a couple of nights
Very dated hotel.
Decor Olde World Style Breakfast good VFM Efficient Helpful Reception Staff
Lack of Bar
Centrally located with shops and restaurants within steps from the Hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. Ask for room 204, in my opinion was an excellent choice, nice balcony, air conditioned and good size. Angel
Gostei imenso! Ambiente acolhedor, limpo e sossegado. Os funcionários são uma simpatia e o pequeno almoço é fantástico, muita variedade! / I loved it! It's very confortable, clean and quiet. The staff is way too kind and the breakfast is amazing, one can chose within a lot of products!
