Hotel Aliados

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

If you like quaint and quirky this might be the place for you. Brilliantly situated for exploring. Staff friendly and helpful although we were sent on a wild goose chase for a take away coffee. Steps to lift could be a problem. Shower room had obviously been updated but no heating and decidedly chilly. The television mysteriously came on in the middle of each of the three nights we stayed!! Bedroom was like a cupboard with a dodgy door and bed was like a brick, the room was cold and the heater didn’t work. Dusty plastic flowers adorned every corner. This hotel is desperately in need of a facelift, the carpets are threadbare and everything looks so old and uncared for. Bedroom floor was not clean so don’t forget your slippers. No tea and coffee making facilities but take away place a couple of doors up the road or McDonald’s opposite. Hard Rock Cafe just round the corner. Breakfast, which starts at 8, was disappointing ....fruit and yoghurt, ham cheese and bread. Nothing hot and no toast and they are obviously fearful of you taking too much as waitress was watching everything that was going on. Wouldn’t visit again and wouldn’t recommend....although location excellent for getting out and abou

This hotel is charming. Wonderful architecture and a view of the avenue Aliados which is amazing! It is central and the breakfast is a good selection of breads, cheese, ham and fruit etc. Very good value for money and friendly staff.

My husband and I stayed for the weekend. The room was very confortable and clean, but a lit a bit old. The internet was good. The location is also good because it's in the center. The breakfast was normal for this type of hotel. The staff is very friendly. It is a ggod hotel If you go for a couple of days. One advice, ask for a rrom with a view to the Avenida dos Aliados.

Best possible location in the heart of the city, beautiful historical front, unfriendly service, mostly small and noisy rooms, no luggage service, no lift to the first and sixth floor, poor breakfast. NOT for elderly or handicapped people, people with infants or with heavy luggage.

In the middle of the heart of Porto and with a walk distance to everything. Nice staff but an hotel that only partly been modernized. We got a very small room with a balcony with a nice view to the square. The good things first, we did not freeze (AC worked fine) and the bathroom fresh and modernized (but small). Free wifi worked fine. A TV ( very small like 20 inches) with international TV channels (positive). Then to the downside, it was extremely noise (bring something to put into your ears if you intend to sleep, particular if there are events ongoing that the place outside). The double bed was small like max 140 cm. The breakfast was of the classic south Europe type so it was bread, coffee and a lot of cookies and not much more. The hotel mentioned that we could get a more robust breakfast at the restaurant around the corner (we tried that for 15 EUR each and was not impressed). Last but not least important that staff they where really service minded and the also surprised us at the new years eve by put some accessories and a bottle in our room. Do I recommend this place ? well if you want silence absolutely not not if you are handicapped because the stairs were very narrow (ok the got a small elevator but still).

After reading some reviews, I was a bit apprehensive about this hotel.How wrong was I. It is in a wonderfully central location, staff friendly, very clean rooms, a lift that worked and had unspoilt old fashioned charm. An excellent choice on my behalf. City tour buses leave from the square as do taxis, and there is a restaurant on the ground floor which is attached to the hotel serving really nice food (not budget though). W e were very lucky to get one of the suites on the fifth floor with a balcony overlooking the square and were able to watch the Christmas lights being switched on! Restaurants and bars all around the square and main attractions within walking distance. Decent breakfast for 5 euros in the hotel.

Central location close to bars and restaurants and in one of the few flattish parts of Porto. Welcoming staff - once you have worked out that the reception is on the second floor! Rooms are small with a tiny bathroom but comfortable . We were there on a weekend and found it was quite noisy with people leaving clubs and bars. Overall a good place for a short break

The reception is located on a second floor which you reach by climbing stairs to an elevator. We were told that there was only one room with a double bed (instead of two requested) and told that there would be a two hour wait for the room. perhaps if the receptionist had been fiendlier we would have waited, but instead we chose to find another hotel.

We were really relieved to obtain a room here when our apartment landlord at Oporto Clerigos Apartments let us down badly. However- despite the friendly and helpful staff- the main square and street noise was too great and we had to seek alternative accommodation the following morning.

Wonderful city lots to do and see hotel perfect positive. River trip is a must and the vertual reality trip over the vine yards in Santa cruise bodiga was good. There was a cable car trip and lots of good taps bars for lunch.the old boats where great and it's a photographers dream .
