Accommodation for Singles

by suzannescm

Further to my previous question "Safe for singles", I am struggling to find somewhere to stay for a week in November on a small budget. I am looking for a guest house or small apartment near the city centre and would welcome any suggestions.
Thanks
Suzanne

Re: Accommodation for Singles

I don't know what your budget is, but do suggest you explore what is on offer on www.booking.com and www.venere.com Both are reliable sites with honest guest reviews and good mapping. You won't pay them anything....you pay the accommodation as usual. Venere also lists some b&bs and apartments.

I've usually found apartments for one person not as budget-friendly as a small hotel/guesthouse.

On booking.com, the cheapest I've found for a random 7-night stay in Porto in November is 174 euro.

There are some decent Pensions 3 minutes walk from Porto bus station.

2 pensions are right beside the station, but they were shabby.

The decent one is at the crossroads, walk back to the junction the bus passes if coming into Porto. Can't miss it.

Decent beds, ensuite, for 20 EUR a day!

Travel Tips for Porto

Governing the finances

by rexvaughan

This is not exactly a tip, but a personal observation. In the photo is a pink building labeled "Brigada Fiscal" which I take to indicate that it is the offices of the financial staff for the city or province. Since I retired from our local county finance department, I took the photo to some old friends there and we discussed whether our office should be called the Financial Brigade. It certainly has a more authoritarian and threatening ring to it!

Porto Tip

by pmckenna

After wondering aroung Lisbon, Porto didn't seem quite so impressive. The fact that lots of the roads were being dug up at the time probably didn't help matters, but, down by the Douro and up above the rooftops offered some beautiful views of the city.

crossing the bridge

by arasnosliw

Ok, some might say that the bridge looks "ugly" right now because of the current renovations going on. But this view, while crossing the bridge, looks awesome to me. I feel like I'm trapped in some sort of complex spiderweb of metal and rope.

Entertainment

by IneXisTenZ

Entertainment
The Portuguese love to talk and enjoy themselves by getting together in a group on the pretext of celebrating family birthdays, weddings and baptisms, or even without any excuse at all. Preferably outside the house, because Portugal’s mild climate encourages this.
The Portuguese people’s natural taste for conversation has its own privileged setting: the Café. Here, gathered together around a small cup of coffee, the famous “bica”, people discuss such subjects as politics, work, women, men and the day’s news.

In the summer months, under the pleasant warmth of the sun, or at night, when the music becomes confused with the rhythmic sound of the breaking waves, the small beach bars provide an excellent and original alternative for having a good time. The climate is particularly helpful: in Portugal, the temperatures stubbornly refuse to break records for either the highest or the lowest.

Old spaces have been intelligently redesigned and are now extremely popular leisure areas. These are places with great charm, offering entertainment designed to suit all kinds of tastes and for people of all ages.

In the summer, there is a great wealth of cultural events. Mingle with our friendly and hospitable inhabitants at the festivities held in honour of the so-called Popular Saints, held mainly in the month of June, and enjoy the lively street entertainment. Music and dancing are to be found at internationally famous festivals, bringing excitement to the hot summer nights. Make the most of your stay!

As places that are regularly used for meeting friends and for taking part in animated discussions, cafés already enjoy more than a century of tradition in Portugal. Even today, a time when everything is done at great speed and in a hurry, to sit calmly sipping a cup of coffee is more than just a habit, it’s a religion. You’ll find cafés everywhere, but above all don’t forget to visit those where our poets and artists have left their distinctive marks.
