Room was very clean and comfortable to stay. Wifi was fast enough. Location is a bit far from a center of old town. Please note that when I stayed this hotel, an owner didn't accept me to pay a fee with a credit card.

It was a very pleasant place, the owner and his son are amazing ! The room was clean and the bathroom as well. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for something inexpensive and a place with a character.

My husband and I stayed for two nights and very much enjoyed our stay. Our room was on the third floor and was not small. Reading some reviews below my only comment is stop complaining. If you have the need for elegance and have the money for this; go down town. This is a small family run business. Jose is...

The receptionist (Jose) was very friendly. He tried his best to explain us everything in a bit of Spanish and Portugese, but he didn't know any English. The room was a bit tight and small, but it was okay for its price. It's a 20 minute walk from the centre of Porto, but there's a bus stop very near. I...

I am enjoying a wonderful stay at Residencial Vale Formoso. It is important to understand that this is a not a hotel. If you want hotel treatment you should pay for it. If you want a convenient location, a great neighborhood, helpful hosts, and a clean, spacious private room with private bathroom (for 30 euro) you will be very happy...

You get what you pay for. Nothing fancy or great about the room but it was really cheap so there is nothing to complain about. Security there is definitely very good as they lock their doors after a certain time and they would open it whenever you come back. Best part is that the owner would be so happy to...

We stayed at the Residencia Vale Formoso for one night in late May 2014. It’s quite hard to decide what rating it should be, 2 or 3 star, I’ll let you judge from my list of pros and cons below: Pros: 1. Clean – no dirt/dust. Bedroom, ensuite and house very tidy. 2. Nice owners – friendly, accommodating, provided us...

Thank you for your review. About the cons, we would like to say a few clarification: - The room you choose was an economic double room, so it is smaller than the standard. - About the TV you could advise in front desk so we could solve the problem. - The breakfast and the general service like you said is...
