A great stay at the Poveira
Only 5 minutes walk from campinha metro station is hotel Poviera and easy to find. From the moment we were met at reception by the delightful Angelica we knew we would enjoy our stay. The room was clean, tidy, spacious with a good sized flat scree tv on the wall, plenty of storage space and beyond our expectation of a 1 star hotel. All the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The room was cleaned along with fresh towels and toiletries provided daily. The hotel is well located with the main train station across the road giving access to portugals rail network and travel between towns and regions, while to the left is the metro station giving full access to all areas of this wonderful city, rail and metro travel within the city is exceptionally cheap and efficient with metro trains every 5 minutes. A selection and decent range of restaraunts and bars are available around the hotel but the best night life is undoubtedly in the city and around the port area, just 3 or 4 stops down the metro line. I would definately recommend this hotel for a short or budget break, the only thing i would change would be a kettle and tea/ coffee making facilities in the room, however the staff were more than happy to let us get one from the breakfast room downstairs. All in all we had a fantastic time at this hotel meeting some wonderful people and will definately be returning.
