Moov Hotel Porto Centro in Porto


A few months ago we returned from our last getaway, the trip to Porto. Another New Year's Eve we celebrated outside the home although, on this occasion, the adventure took us very close to home, a place that we loved although you already know what you have read the articles. Now we want to give you an answer to that great unknown that we all do before leaving ...Where to sleep in Porto? And we do it with our already traditional review about the Moov Hotel Porto Centro hotel in Porto, which was our unbeatable choice and that, inour opinion, It is one of the best BBB in the city not only for all the amenities it offers, but for its location and value for money.

The hotel Moov Hotel Porto Centro It is one of the most recommended among travelers on forums and tripadvisor, in addition to being in the heart of the city.

Hotel Moov Hotel Porto Centro in Praça de Batalha in Porto

He Moov Hotel Porto Centro enter those hotels BBB (good, beautiful and cheap) that we all dream of on any trip.

his Location You will love it since you enter through its main door since it is next to… !! everything !!, besides being a new experience since its location was a centenary building, the mythical Cinema Águia D'ouro. It is in this emblematic construction of 1839 where a renovated, sophisticated and cozy space is now located, where the spirit of the cinema is still alive since its decoration demonstrates this in every corner of the hotel. From its hall to corridors and rooms have scenes of the most famous old films that have surely been screened in their day in this cinema converted into a great hotel

The hotel Moov Hotel Porto Centro of 2 stars It is located in Praça de Batalha a few minutes from the main attractions of the city and various means of transport such as: the subway at 450 meters, the train at 500m, Av. Dos Aliados at 600m and the airport at 16.2km.

Places near the Moov Hotel Porto Centro:

- Igreja de Santo Ildefonso, an 18th-century church built in a proto-baroque style that features a beautiful granite tile facade and tiles
- The street Rua Santa Catarina, one of the main ones in Porto, full of fashion stores and very busy, ideal for a pleasant walk.
- The Porto Coliseum, 150 meters away, a wonderful building both outside and inside where many events have been held
- He São João National Theater, ten minutes, very representative and recently restored. Worth a visit (there are guided tours)

The Moov Hotel Porto Centro offers 125 rooms modern, decorated with soft tones and black and white photographs of famous old films that, if we get carried away by the imagination, will have projected them in the cinema where the hotel is now.

It has free Wi-Fi (available throughout the building), heating, air conditioning, small flat screen TV and desk (which is certainly very necessary for Isaac)

Bathroom,in line with the room, it is something small but new and careful in terms of its appearance and above all clean, but complete with everything necessary.

The cleaning, We can say that it is excellent throughout the establishment from the entrance to the rooms.

There is option of breakfast Buffet type but does not enter the price of the room with what we did not take (we read that it is a bit limited and there are a thousand options around -very close is Lady Pe Da Goat-)

It also has a courtyard which is part of a terrace with tables and chairs facing a yard. In summer it has to be very nice to have a coffee here

Although it has private parking so as not to turn around, being necessary to reserve it, we do not recommend it much since it looked quite small and "something" complicated to maneuver. We prefer to leave it in a nearby parking lot to be more calm and not have to be aware of it since you will not need it on your route through Porto (yes for visits to Braga or Guimaraes with some freedom -if you do not make excursions-)

As for the staff, the attention is unbeatable. They speak Spanish and are very friendly to explain any questions you may have.

The value for money is unbeatable for everything already exposed. The price of a standard room according to season is between € 40 and € 60which, to be full center, is very cheap!

Verdict of the Moov Hotel Porto Centro hotel in Porto, our opinion

Although the variation is not much from one era to another, we leave you as always the possibility to check it yourself ...

Moov Hotel Porto Centro

As PROs We would discard almost everything but, if there is an order to be placed, it would be its unbeatable location (so central that you can walk to almost all the places of interest), how cozy the rooms are, the friendliness and the attention to the customer .

As against We can say some how not to include breakfast in the price of the room (although there are many places around to do so), the entry system in the room by keyboard is a bit of a pain, the television is very small for those who want to do use of it or a "somewhat complicated" parking lot.

Would we recommend it? Without a doubt, YES. Personally, when we return to Porto, it will be our choice again. If you want to be close to everything and you will spend more time outside than inside, this hotel is ideal.
