I chose this hotel for several reasons: centre location, recently built hotel that revitalized an important part of the city. Stayed there for two nights and the first impression you get from the hotel aren’t deceiving: fresh yet classic look, very well decorated, the staff is very pleasant and cordial, ready, willing and able to give good informations on what you need.
To be fair, the hotel is great and provides a great experience to its guests, however, there were two things that I didn’t appreciate:
The first was that they forgot to deliver the brunch that was ordered when I booked the room. They were prompt to apologise for their mistake and to correct it, however I got a feeling of poor organization that is not adequate for a 5* hotel;
The second thing was the fact that inside the room, at night, you can hear the noises that come from the street. My room was in the corner near Estação de S. Bento, and people who have a light sleep that could be an issue.
Apart from this, I that this hotel should be considered if staying in Porto.
