The hotel is an express so expect the minimum necessities. This one also has a restaurant. Lobby area really nice . Rooms are typical holiday inn. The service however is excellent !!! Strange location for a hotel but there are several good restaurants within a 10 minute walk ..

We stayed here our last night of a tour of the douro because we had a 7am flight. For that it was great. The other positive was the friendly staff. They were VERY nice and arranged our cab for the morning etc. The room was okay, but the air conditioning did not work but when we opened the window it...

As the hotel is just across the street from exponor, it has an exccellent location if you are goin there. However, if you are going to Francisco Sa Carneiro airport, the hotel is a bit far away and requires you to take a taxi or to walk a while to the nearest metro station. Very polite and attentive staff. Not...

Good location, parking available outsider free of charge. Room spacious and clean! In my opinion very expensive for what it's offered. Breakfast very poor to say the least. Lack of choices, it felt like I was having breakfast in a staff restaurant, disappointment. Waiter very unfriendly. Small vending machine at the entrance area - what a joke. You have to...

Very nice and clean hotel. Personal is very kind and professional. The hotel is just 10minutes away from the airport by car and the taxi costs ca. 15€. The hotel works with taxi companies and they can arrange the transfer to the airport 24hors a day.

We stayed here purely to visit Porto. We chose the hotel because it had parking and was by a bus stop; we were not disappointed. Getting into town was only a twenty minute journey right to the centre, or you could get off at the big shopping centre in the north of Porto. As far as the hotel goes, it...

We enjoyed the hotel and it was a good location. Only a 15 minute bus ride to the city centre which was a great idea because Porto is a busy city. We were able to park no problem and the staff members were great. The room was comfortable and met our needs.

Very nice hotel and friendly staff. We parked our vehicle at the hotel and took the bus in front the hotel and went downtown. Great city to visit and the bus station was downtown so it was easy to get back.

We made the booking over the phone and we were surprised by the friendly, yet professional, attitude of the reception staff. The hotel is nothing fancy but clean and reasonable priced. For an extra 10 Euros, the hotel will book a taxi and pay your ride to the airport, very convenient. Breakfast is included (avoid if you are not hungry)...
