Better fit

As I mentioned in the previous post, there were no cats being swung in my hotel room in Porto last night.  I forgot to mention that the price I paid (€25 per night) was less than I had originally agreed to pay when I reserved a few weeks ago (€37 per night).  This was a spontaneous gesture by the owner to compensate me for getting the smallest room in the house.

This morning when leaving to visit the city I asked if the was a place nearby where I could do laundry.  There is, quite close, but the hotel owner said he'd do it for me.  How nice can you get?

Well, even nicer!   This evening when I got back, he told me that a better room had become available so he offered me that at no extra charge.  It's more than twice the size, has a bigger bathroom and a strong wifi signal.

There are lots of family-run restaurants in the area that do really good seafood.  I tried one last night and another tonight and on both occasions had a large-ish meal with fairly decent house white wine for around €16.

Pensão Central, Rua Brito Capelo, 599, Matosinhos (Porto).

I'll be back!
