very good at an excellent price
it`s Porto, so expect noise at night, especially if your room is on the street side. apart from that, room was clean, bathrooms are renovated, and the kitchen and communal area is nice and functional. CAtarina was a great host.

Clean hotel; needs better bathroom air circulation
Very clean and modern rooms. The kitchen and dining areas were immaculate, and always looked super clean and put-together. Check-in was simple and straightforward because I arrived while the reception was open. Tip if you plan on booking this hotel: Reception closes at 4:00 PM daily, so if you plan on arriving after that hour, you'll need to call into the hotel to make sure you get access to the locked front door. Reception was really friendly, and was always willing to help with inquiries. My only complaint would be that the bathrooms need better air circulation because it would smell after a shower, and the bathroom air extractor fans weren't powerful enough to pull that air out. I also felt suspicious of the sink's water at times. After using the toilet, the water would get a slight tint of yellow, and only after running the water a bit, would it turn back to a clear colour. Maybe the pipes are connected to the pipes that fill the toilet water? I don't know.

I would stay again at The Colony Guest House
I would personally recommend The Colony Guest House. The guesthouse is kept very clean, tidy, and it felt very comfortable. The small details that you will find in this place will show you that they want to make their guests feel welcomed. The girl working there was attentive to our needs and very accommodating. I believe her name is pronounced J(sh)usta.
