This is the play to stay if you want a clean room for a great price in the city center (200 meters from the railway station and 500 meters from the bus station). You don't have breakfast but for the price is more than acceptable, but you can find many bakeries and pastries nearby! I've stayed there several times and...

Thank you for your generous consideration. It is true that a service breakfast is not necessary because there are plenty of cafes and bakeries along the Pensão Grande Oceano and with very affordable prices.

Great place to stay when visiting this nice and friendly city. I've been recomending it for some friends when coming to Porto and they all considerer a little gem - It's quite cheap, very cozy (a kind of small hostel), very typical, excelent location (right in city centre, 3 min from Aliados metro stop, 2 min from S.Bento train station,...

Quiet (at least on our room side), clean and comfortable. Great location: in the city center, near Sao Bento train station and many restaurants. The staff doesn't speak english but it's really friendly and helpful. Just one remark: the bathrooms are not well isolated so the quietness of your stay depends on your neighbours.

We appreciate all the positive aspects enhanced. The isolation of the bathrooms, in fact, technically it is impossible to totally isolate the sound that goes from one bathroom to another.

At €35 per night, nobody is complaining. Very well located, correct room with bathroom that functioned and was clean. A bit noisy due to shared bathroom next door. Nice view over the rooftops, TV in Portuguese only, very helpful staff at the desk, with very little English, some French and Spanish.

Thank you for your sincere comment. In fact, next to your room there is the only one shared bathroom of the Pensão Grande Oceano (which serves two bedrooms, because every other bedrooms have a private bathroom), so it is an area with a little more movement.

Our rooms are located in three floors and unfortunately we don’t have lift. We would like to have one, but there is not enough area to install it. So, to minimize that, we have rebuilt our stairs, in the present year, because our previous stairs were old and a bit irregular. In terms of noise we installed some sound proof...

Some friends and I were looking for an inexpensive pension for one night in Porto. Based on the reviews found here, we chose the Pensao grande oceano. We were pleased. When looking for a no-frills place to sleep I am primarily concerned with cleanliness. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The location is near the Aliados plaza but on...

When my boyfriend booked a room at this Pensão, I didn't expect much (by the way, the photos on the website do not do the owners any justice! :) ) ... I was wrong not to!
