Hotel do Norte

Perfect location, very central. Room was big and clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful. All in all a great experience, particularly compared to other places in Porto that seem out to take from you as much as they can.

I booked this hotel for a one night stay. The primary reason for choosing this was its location to the metro as I was arriving on a late flight and wanted to get the metro into the city. The location is excellent, literally less than a minute walk from the Bolhao metro station and opposite a fantastic tiled church. The cost was also really good, EUR 45 for a twin room. There are plenty of shops and cafes close by and you can get to all the main sights by an easy walk or for quickness a short metro journey. The reception desk were very friendly and check in was quick. The room was nice and modern although quite cold as I arrived about midnight so it would have been nice if the heating had been on. Maybe if you are a late arrival at a cold time of the year you could maybe request them to put the heating on. I booked the standard double room which was adequate for 2 people for 1 night but if you were staying any longer it might be better to see if you can pay any more for a slightly bigger room. There is no breakfast facility but plenty of options close by. To summarise a really nice hotel offering great value in a great location for a short break to Lisbon.

This hotel is located very well, just see the view I had from my room, also friendly staff and good value. The downside though, the rooms are really noisy, I could hear the steps of more or less every person in the stairs, the room above, below, on the street etc. With earplugs this is a great hotel for that money and location though!

We stayed for 3 nights at this hotel. The rates are quite expensive for the quality of accommodation it offers. First problem is that there is no breakfast available. Then the rooms are not at all isolated from the noise both from outside and from the other rooms. Also, in our case the door was not blocking all the light from the hallway, so I can imagine that someone on the other side could see inside our room. The shower had some leakage problems. The only good part about this hotel (which I actually consider more like a hostel, not a two-star hotel) was the location, close to the shopping area and the city center. All in all, I would not recommend it for families and for staying more than 1 night.

I just back from Porto and now I know you have not got better place for stay in this city than Hotel do Norte. With my couple we took the studio apartment - room with the little kitchen. Its placed few meters from hotel do norte with the view for the main alley in Porto. I mean room its in the MIDDLE of Down town. First Times we was afraid but after one night we had not got the problem. Good window solved the problem. If you would like to spend time in Porto with comfortable solution Its the Best address. - quiet, clean, helpful crew.

We visited Porto at the end of September and reserved this hotel because of the location but it was a big mistake. Porto is a small city and you can stay basically anywhere in town. The Hotel is old, dirty, and rooms are tiny. The double bed barely fits in the room, the bathroom is about 2m2 small, the elevator does not work, the wifi did not work 2 days out of 3. This place really needs to be refurbished. The prices are not exactly the ones of a cheap hostel. This is probably the hotel with the worst price / quality relationship I have ever seen. The girls at the reception are nice and helpful. That's the only positive aspect of the hotel. I would clearly not recommend this place.

we stayed 3 nights at Do Norte and it was elevator and no breakfast but!!! friendly front desk, clean room, prime location. who need more than that? you find very cloth to the hotel a beautifull coffe place that serve also delicious Nata, the Bolhao market is 50 m' from the hotel and every thig is in wlaking distance....

For the price you pay this is a great hotel. Right by the metro and close to shops and restaurants. The rooms are tiny, especially the bathroom. If you're a larger person it would be extremely difficult to use the shower and washroom here. There is also no elevator in case you have trouble using the stairs. The bed is comfortable though and rooms are clean. The front staff are very friendly and helpful. My one complaint is that when we came back to our room the maid who cleaned it left our outside doors open... Yes we were on the third floor but not a great feeling when there's no safe and our stuff is out.

Old world style hotel, penso feel. Clean and the staff was great--friendly and informative. Great location to access the metro and near great shopping and cafes. Not luxury but very clean and great accessible to city.

I was staying with my sister. The hotel is on a busy street and close to everything but most importantly to Via Catherina the mall. I wouldnt recommend to people who would like a relaxing time. We are in Portugal for week and location is all it matters . Hotel is small but clean , room was nice and very clean also. The only thing I bothered was the bad internet since i needed for work. I would totally recommend this hotel. Worth every penny. PS stuff was friendly too:) Thank you
