I was in Porto for Business and was moved from the hotel I booked due to an overbooking issue with lastminute.com. I was hesitant at first after discovering this hotel was 4km outside of porto, however it turned out to only be a very cheap ten minute taxi journey into the centre and there were always taxi's waiting in the hotel entrance. This is more of a spa hotel than business, my room was amazing and very modern with a view over the river. The building is stunning and very cleverly designed - the main hotel areas (bar, restaurant, library) are based in the palace which is an incredible building, this is linked through to a modern building where the bedrooms are housed allowing for extremely modern and up-to-date bedrooms with the feeling of a grand palace as soon as you step outside of your room.
