Enjoying a great location in the Historic Centre of Porto, in Grand Plaza Aliados, next to the City Hall and Metro Station Aliados, Hotel Vera Cruz equals comfort, quality and efficiency of service.
Very recently renovated, Hotel Vera Cruz is a modern and comfortable space where we can highlight the well equipped rooms with splendid views on the Grand Plaza, and the breakfast room terrace, on the top floor, where you can have a panoramic view of the city.
Those looking to discover the city, can start by strolling down the Grand Plaza, which will quick and easily lead to the Central Railway Station Sao Bento and the fabulous Clerigos Tower. In the meantime, spend some time enjoying a meal at the musicians' coffee shop Guarany, one of Oporto's finest historical cafés.
If you prefer to delight yourself doing some shopping, take the 5 minutes way to Santa Catarina, the main shopping street in the City and where you can find also the traditional market Bolhao. To recover from the run of shopping, take some moments to enjoy the feeling of being at the charming and welcoming Café Majestic.
Another five-minutes walk will take you to the Ribeira area and the world famous Wine Cellars of Port Wine.

Review of Vera Cruz Hotel

The Worst Hotel I've ever stayed
The photos of this hotel looked very nice on the Internet, yet when we arrived we were immediately disappointed. The room was dirty. There was hair in the bathroom, mold in the shower. We refused to shower and checked out the next day. The room
was small, dark, gross. I would not recommend this hotel.
