Compact bathroom with everything you would expect including hairdryer. Lots of toiletries and replenished daily. Room changed daily and kept very clean and tidy. Breakfast was really good with plenty of variety though not sure about sprouts for...

With great views over the town and river, this was a brilliant find. The hotel staff were excellent ensuring we had everything we needed. They gave us advice on sights to see and also how much to pay for a taxi. Although close to the town it would be a 45 minute walk down a steep hil and of course...

The hotel is close to the main sights. The hotel provides access to the Shopping Arrábida and supermarket, as well as being close to one of the best hospitals in Portugal. Excellent staff care, breakfast and exceptional room cleanliness. I'II be back!

I stayed for a 3 night business trip. The hotel was ideally located for my needs but probably not if I was visiting to see more of Porto itself. The reception staff were friendly, room was large and room service satisfied my needs. All in all a very good hotel and very good value for money.
