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.

We stayed at this great hotel during our recent family trip to Porto, Portugal. This hotel is not in the city center and therefore is quiet and you can actually find free parking outside or in the hotel's garage for 5 Euros per day. The staff is super friendly and helpful and the rooms are nice, comfortable and clean. It...

Hotel is very close to the highway. Not so close to the city centre. If you have a car, then its a good option. Very attractive ambiance. Free car park. Close to a shopping mall. Very well trained staff. Rooms are large and equipped with all the facilities. Bottom line: 9 on 10.
