This hotel does just about everything right. The rooms are modern and elegant with stylish and functional decor.
The bed and bed linens are soft and luxurious feeling. The pillows and duvet are plush down.
The blackout curtains are the most effective I have ever experienced. I thought it was still the middle of the night when I woke up and opened the curtain and it was already sunny out.
The bathroom was large with a separate shower and soaking tub. The shower was effectively sealed with the door closed so the bathroom floor didn't get soaked. The tub is large and perfect for a long hot bath. The towels are huge and fluffy. The hairdryer in the room is the highest quality hair dryer I have ever found in a hotel.
The staff are helpful and attentive but the service is not suffocating. The lobby and the bar on the ground floor are very nice. The location is convenient to anything one could want to do in Porto.
The valet parking was inexpensive and convenient.
The only complaint I would register is that both checking in and checking out there was only one person working at the desk and I had to wait quite a long time both times.
