Great rooms..lots of hot water, rooms really nice! Breakfast was excellent as well! It' very modern in design, very earth friendly with the hallway lighting, the bed was very comfortable, the front desk people were always friendly. It was a bit out of the way of the downtown business district but we were on a coach so it didn't matter...

I have been there with my wife on a business trip, but stayed another night for holiday. We came early, around 12:00 noon, and I had to shower and dress. The receptionist made a special effort and gave us a room before the usual schedule. The hotel is nice, room are in good size, clean and comfortable. Breakfast in the...

Very nice modern clean rooms, big bathroom with full size bath & shower, good food at the restaurant. Kind & accomodating staff. Metro and bus lines not too far away. About a 15-20 minute walk from the Casa da Musica. Had a lovely stay!

Everything is nearly perfect. Only the location and surrounding are not very ideal for Porto visiting. I missed information about public Transportes to city and airport. Internet Site is not very helpful.

Good value hotel with a good breakfast modern decor. Exceptionally clean and well run. It is a bit far from the city centre if you just want to pop in to town but plenty of cheap busses and the uber taxi is about 6 euros. We got a two day tourist bus ticket which includes most of the local busses...

We were very pleased to stay at this hotel. Very friendly staff, nice rooms, very good location as we did not want to stay in the busiest areas but wanted easy access to all touristic sites. The only downs are the gym which is very small and that there is no swimming pool for general use. Breakfast was super good...

The hotel is nice but the rooms are very cold. The heating of the air conditioning was not working on the bedrooms although the heating in the corridors and the hotel was working fine. We had a very rough night because of that.

Hotel very nice. I recommend booking the breakfast as included in your booking, otherwise 9 euro per person. Location is a ways out of the city center, but I liked that and easy access with the bus system. I recommend and would stay again.

As on all my stays at the Hotel I was pleased by the Service and the very beautiful rooms. The Food and Drinks are very tasty as well as valuable. The Location is ideal, the way to the sea, the City centre as well as the Close Highway are very Close and perfect for any trip.
