Pão de Açúcar Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

My room, on the top floor, had windows but they were so high that you could only see the sky. I realise they looked out on air con equipment or similar, and I could check the weather; I prefer windows you can look out. The breakfast was ok but if you avoid bread, cake or cereal it was limiting. There was plenty of fruit, yogurt, cheese and ham. The room was small and got very congested at certain times although it was pleasant to sit out on the terrace. A photo on the hotel website shows the roof terrace with sun loungers. However, these are only for rooms on that side of the floor; other guests can sit at the chairs and tables which are comfy but slightly disappointing- especially when the loungers are unused! The hotel is very well placed to explore the city. The design is unusual with retro items displayed on each floor. I'm sure every guest takes a photo of the staircase. My room was very clean and the shower was powerful. Access to outside space was a big factor in my choice as I like to be able to relax in the sun after a day of walking. The terrace was cool at breakfast but in full sun by late morning. Staff were always helpful and friendly. I walked everywhere but took the metro back to the airport which was v quick, easy and cheap!

Very lovely hotel decorated in antiques and such, immaculately clean, and a great location downtown, but the walls are plaster and our neighbor was fond of early morning radio, and the restaurant played loud music late at night-- and the pillows a bit small so my wife nd I had a bit of a time adjusting and sleeping. Breakfast was very continental but the tea water was warm only and the tea selection not good for a black or dark tea drinker. However, it was a fun stay and the price was nice for such a well-maintained and historical hotel, and it had a very helpful staff. Prices at the honor bar are very reasonable and product is good.

We moved to this central hotel after finding our previous one not as comfortable as we thought it would be. Highlights: the engaging friendly helpful staff, the aircon, spacious spotlessly clean room, large well-appointed bathroom, and of course the funny decorations. This is a theme hotel in a 1930s building - it has decor and collections from the 50s and 60s - crazy bumper cars, models and half a ford anglia, with lights on, in the lounge - all beautifully restored. The stairwell is a treat just to look at - and very easy to walk up and down. There are two lifts. Breakfast is in a rooftop room and is basic continental. They opened the rooftop bar while we were there - very pleasant. The only negative was the ban on hand-washing clothes in the room, as they have a luandry service. Other than that, the hotel was perfect..

Lovely quirky hotel in the central hotel. would highly recommend to solo travellers as it is in a central location and you will feel safe. two min walk from metro 2.55 euro to airport by metro Single room was very small but clean. very clean bathroom too. extremely friendly staff a lot of hotels could learn from them. would totally recommend it

We had a great room with a cozy access to a terrace and a modern bathroom and tastefull amenities. Bed was comfortable and breakfast was included in the price. The staff was very attentive and professional and ready to help with any questions. The hotel was close to restaurants, the Metro and other public transportation and walking distance to most of the points of interest.

Very good from the start, friendly professional welcome at reception. Room larger than the average city centre 3* hotel, clean, comfy bed, mini bar. That's the ordinary part and Acucar is far from ordinary, a hotel with a gynacologist's office on the 2nd floor? That's handy! No real lounge but you can have a seat in a row of aeroplane chairs or a bumper car. It's preferable to use the stairs rather than the lift so you can view the memorabilia on each landing. No bar but you can take your own drinks to the rooftop terrace. We thought it was brilliant. One small niggle, the breakfast room was a bit small for the volume of people in residence.

Tough review as this is a good place in general, but needs simple TLC t are it a solid 4 star. Maybe they had nicer rooms - for 134$ euros we had 4 adults (our choice) in one very large room. The room was extremely musty, stuffy and in need of paint and new rugs. Very clean washroom (newly renovated). Noisy as it is an old building.. Location is dead centre of Porto, close to everything. Check in was quick and friendly. Staff were very welcoming and helpful. Lots (dozens) of excellent places to eat nearby.

Stayed here for only one night but we really enjoyed it. The staff are friendly and the rooms are clean. The hotel decor is quite amusing with the retro decorations taking you back to the 70's. The location is fantastic being at the center of the city

Fantastic location. Cordial, helpful staff. Loved the interior spiral staircase and vintage décor. Rooms plain but very clean. Excellent breakfast. One of the best restaurants in Porto across the street.

The hotel is centrally located in Porto walking distance to one of the main metro stations. The nearby plaza ond the riverside is quite close and well connedted with public transport. Having breakfast in the balcony was really nice.
