Hi there,
My mother, sister and I are doing the Camino Portugues from Porto to Santiago. We would like to stay in a hotel, close to the official starting point:
The Cathedral Sè.

Do you have any recommendations?

Thank you

xx

We really liked the Nice Way Hostel when we were there in 2016. It had only been open two weeks at that time so there were a couple of kinks I'm sure have been taken care of since then, but nothing serious. Very clean and friendly, highly recommended.

If you have the time, take a motorcycle sidecar tour. We waited until our last day/evening and wish we'd done it upon arrival - a great way to see the city, our driver found a great place for dinner for us, and you feel like a rock star. Highly recommended.

walked the portuguese way (senda littoral). from porto, vila do conde via viana and redondela Jun 17
I stayed at hotel ibis centro porto which is well located in the old city area and its a short walk down hill to the cathedral https://www.accorhotels.com/gb/hotel-3344-ibis-porto-centro/index.shtml ...if you register on the site you get a discount.
The rooms are en suite, not huge, but the bed was the most comfortable of all my stays and breakfast was decent inc pastel de nata. I took the metro from airport to Bolhao station which brings you out close, and directly in front of Capella de almas (pic). One of Portos treats....if you have time do spend some of it in Porto....

I recommend using www.booking.com and review your search results using the map view. Most hotel descriptions will also give you the distance to the Cathedral.

I hope this helps.

Since we were staying for 3 days, we stayed at a very nice Airbnb apartment for less than a hotel. It had a washer and nice kitchen facilities. I don't remember how many beds though. 2 blocks from the cathedral.

There are a couple of Hotels. You have Ibis, there is also a Mercure within a couple of bocks, and also a Comfort in. I have stayed in all 3 of them. They are very convenient if you coming in the metro.

Buen Camino!

I can't recommend the passenger hostel enough if you want to consider a hostel?
Check it out online and see if its something you might enjoy too?
