Great hotel with struggles
Everything was except the air conditioning in the room would not work. It was cooler in the lobby than in our room.

2/10 Poor

Very disappointing.
I must confess that I was truly disappointed with everything in this hotel. Location was in the middle of nowhere with difficult walking access. The staff in the reception were friendly but unfortunately they can do miracles. The room cleaning team are very messy and they make your journey to the rooms quite challenging. The rooms are very small, unpractical and dark. The bed cover had a stain on it. The pics on the web looked ok but the decor it’s quite tacky. Breakfast wasn’t what I was expecting.

Excellent Hotel out of the city centre
The Rubens is about a 15-20 minute downhill walk to the river and city centre. You can catch a bus or tram and taxis are quite cheap if you don't fancy the uphill walk at the end of the day. Bear in mind that everything in Porto is up or downhill. There was no shuttle bus operating whilst we were there. The staff are really friendly and breakfast was very good. There was no mini bar in our room but our friends had one. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and nicely furnished. I'd be very happy to stay there again.

Hotel de 5 * ao preço de 4*
Adorei o Hotel. O profissionalismo e simpatia dos funcionários, o conforto da cama, a pressão do chuveiro, a qualidade das toalhas e do roupão...tudo excelente. Voltarei seguramente.

10/10 Exceptional

The staff were courteous and friendly, The room was spacious and very clean. The bed comfortable with quality linen and ample pillows. Bathroom had modern fixtures and, like the room, very clean. The breakfast was the best we've had in 4 weeks travelling throughout Portugal. The location was not bad; quiet and seemingly safe with a 10 minute walk to Ponte Luiz bridge. The property decor reminded me of Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas. We would stay here again.

New & clean accommodations. Friendly staff. New facility- still working out some bugs in room and service. Room not made up upon arrival and after 4 PM after first night. Leaking shower connections/towel hook fell of wall. Breakfast was ok. Also seemed early on learning curve. Location required a decent walk to other activities- shuttle only runs until 5 PM. Parking at 7.5 euro per day... eh,
