Went with my family to Porto. The hotel is a bit out of center. The real nice part of Porto is near the river and the sea. Good connections available though. Easy accessible via subway Busses nearby Good breakfast, nice indoor pool with sauna Rooms are nice Good internet connection Friendly staff at the reception

Not very convenient for the centre of Porto, and had little Portuguese character, which I hoped for on a leisure trip. Very busy indeed, so staff had little time to attend to our needs. Buffet meals expensive and unappetising.
