    Almost the chepest hotel in Porto with simple clean rooms for travellers. Good location. A lot of parkigns around. We were lucky to find free place on the street. Value for money.

    A lot of plastic inside. Nice first impression but later on we understand that it is not very comfurtable. No breakfast.

    The location was very good - considering the price - the old city centre was easy to reach by foot. There was a supermarket close by which was very nice. The staff was really helpful and kind. It wasn't too expensive. Aircondition was nice.

    One thing we didn't like about the location is that it's quite noisy - the traffic - so you have to close the windows when you're sleeping.

    The room was very clean and neat it was also big enough. The place is very close to city center

    They charge extra for everything including hair dryer, tv remote, early check in(which is at 11:00 and the normal chack-in is at 15:00) I think it's rather a late hour for a check-in.

    Very good with respect to price, new, clean, big rooms, with air conditioning.

    There is no wi-fi as indicated in the hotel description. You should remove this lie from the hotel description. There is a pc with iternet in the corridor and you have to pay to use it.

    Good location, next to main shopping street and not to far from main turistic attractions. Good value for money. Modern design, bathroom seems the ones from the plane... Only for 1/2 nights.

    Everything extra at extra cost, even leaving your bags for some time and putting on tv. They don't clean your room if you do not pay extra. There was no breakfast. Area after 20.00 is quite rare and empty, with strange people around, not to safe.

    Our stay at the easy hotel in Porto was great: cheap, cheap, cheap, good location, extremely friendly staff! The rooms were clean, the location was fine to get to the city center and: the panoramic elevator to go down to the Ribera is very close!

    On the downside: The rooms are not cosy, if people are looking for a romantic and intimate place to stay, this is definitely not the hotel. The rooms are brand-new though and superclean, so we didn't mind at all!

    Has a good location close to the main attraction of the river and center of town. Very clean, and friendly staff as well. Also good price for this location.

    Easy Porto Hotel is very cheap and it has a good location, it takes about 10 to 15 minutes by foot to the city center, but...

    I don't recommend this hotel for longer stays such as a week for several reasons. The room is extremely small and it was dusty and obviously not cleaned recently when we arrived. There was no wardrobe cabinet, just a small table with 5 hangers which is not nearly enough. Moreover the toilet gives you a feeling like you're being in a ship since is all plastic and it has the typical cabin round window. Also it is too small and gets messy easily, The fact that annoyed us the most were the hotel's so-called "dumping windows for maximum security". The hotel doesn't allow you to open your room window fully, so you can only dump them, which is crazy since you often feel like in a gas chamber and in need of more fresh air. The hotel staff was another story, since once of the ladies at the reception desk told us a wrong location for the Estadio do Dragao and one of the stops from the Yellow Bus tours. Also expect to be charged if you check in before 3 pm, or check out after 10 am, if you want to use the tv or have clean towels.

    A €5 fee for using the 12 channels television in the room is ridiculous.
