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.

Rooftop breakfast room is so nice

Rooftop breakfast room is so nice to view all over the city (but windy). Staff are nice and friendly. But it's funny they put a fridge in our room on the last day we stay (brand-new fridge! We found the cardboard box of the fridge at the staircase...)

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.

Very good

The best moment of the day is the breakfast on the last floor. The detail that I didn't like is the plastic under the sheets. It is really uncomfortable.

A déconseiller

Impossible de se garer, l'hotel est en plein centre ville plus de voitures que de places. Il fait très froid dans les chambres, pas de chauffage dans la salle de bain. Les rideaux des chambres sont plus court que les fenêtres donc beaucoup de jour. Pas d'insonorisation on entend tout les bruits de la rue. La wifi ne fonctionne pas il faut être à la réception pour y arriver. Seul point positif le petit déjeuner (qui à mon gout est ouvert trop tard. )

Las instalaciones necesitan una reforma. Las habitaciones no son muy grandes, pero están limpias y en el baño tienes de todo, incluso secador de pelo. La situación del hotel es perfecta, y el desayuno en la azotea con vistas a la avenida dos aliados es algo excepcional.

Quarto pequeno, mas localização, limpeza e preços excelentes. Recepção bastante atenciosa, com destaque para a senhora Sonia. O café da manhã é bom, com uma bela vista da Avenida Aliados, e a senhora Cidália, responsável pelo mesmo, é extremamente eficaz e simpática. Vale muito a pena ficar lá.

El personal muy amable, el precio

El personal muy amable, el precio muy bueno y la localización insuperable pero las camas eran pequeñas y el cuarto tabmién pequeño y oscuro. No había sitio para dejar abierta la maleta y andar (me choqué con la esquina de la cama).
