I stayed at this hotel many times through the summer of 2011 This almost new hotel (started in 2007) is situated in the outskirts of Oporto It offers what the majority of the hotels in town don’t have: great cleanness, peaceful suburbs in an almost rural area, huge rooms and nice architecture. If you get to choose rooms go for the 9th floor they have wonderful views. The hotel rooms are huge, nicely decorated and very clean. When you turn the TV on, a speaker in the bathroom goes on so you don’t miss anything when relaxing in the bath. Listen carefully to the (actually very straightforward) directions for the 10 minuet walk to the Metro terminus will be explained by the delightfully friendly reception staff “Once you've mastered the route to the Metro this hotel is a real find!”( rather far away from the city centre.)
The hotel itself is absolutely superb - gleaming marble, tiles and mirrors with en-suite bedrooms fully equipped with all mod-cons, shower and bath, hairdryer, toiletries, towels galore, packets of cleansing tissues and sewing kit etc. etc. Also a mini-bar and digital safe
The piece -de- resistance of this establishment is the gargantuan buffet hot and cold breakfast - running for 3 hours per day - with at least 30 different foods and drinks according to taste. I have not stayed at other hotels in Porto but I would rate this 10 out of 10.The slightly odd location gives you a chance to discover local shops and cafes. Nothing very scenic to see when walking, although we felt very safe.
The SPA was great total relaxation!!!!
Good facilities in general and very good selection of typical dishes.
The indoors and outdoors was clean and well kept. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The food is great. Two PCs with free Internet near the reception. The receptionist helped me with directions to organize a trips
But most of all the cleanliness of rooms and Professionalism of all staff.
Ask for a room away from the lifts and if possible on the 9 floor for best views
