I agree with the other reviews - modern hotel in a quiet location. Very large room and bathroom with a kitchenette worked for us. We preferred not staying in the center of very busy Porto. Getting to city center is easy with the nearby Metro - we are in our seventies and it was easy. Underground parking was convenient. Porto is a wonderful city to visit - much to do and see. Hotel's free buffet breakfast could be better - needs more personal attention.

We stayed here twice, at the beginning and end of our recent trip to Porto and Galicia. Although it seems slightly out of the way, it's an easy journey from the airport on the metro - take line E (purple) to Trindade, then change to line D (yellow) to Hospital Sao Joao, the end of the line. From there, it's a quick walk across the road to the hotel.

The hotel itself is a modern building, clean and functional. The room doors are difficult to open without careful instruction! The rooms themselves are a reasonable size, with a separate shower room and toilet. The much advertised 'full kitchen facilities' aren't great. There is a microwave, a fridge, some cutlery, but nothing else. I wouldn't go there expecting to do any self-catering. The rooms are very comfortable and very clean. The staff were helpful, but we didn't really have much interaction with them.

It's easy to get into town, using the Metro, and there's a handy shopping centre at nearby IPO (the stop just before the hotel, but only a 5 minute walk), which has a Froiz supermarket. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes by the hotel, so you do have choices if you don't want to eat in the centre of Porto. Our favourite was the lovely cafe and cake shop just in front of the hotel - most excellent cakes. There is also a great burger place called 'Tropical Burger', which does the largest burgers known to mankind.

So, this is a good hotel, in a handy location, with plenty of eating choices around. The rates are excellent, so this is worth looking at.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the front are good, with balconies overlooking the reasonably quiet street.

This was a last minute decision. We decided to drive from Spain and were pleasantly surprised when we arrived.

The hotel itself fees like a renovated appartment building. It was very modern, nice and clean. Good value for the price.
What we enjoyed the most was the convenience of the location. We had a rental car but we barely used it.
The hotel is whithin walking distance from the train terminal. The train is fast and cheap.
We did not eat dinner at the restaurant, however, breakfast was great. Good selection and the juices are fresh.

The only thing missing was a gym or work out facility in the hotel.

Rooms were quiet every night. No specific views from the rooms since this is in a residential area.

Eurostars Oporto is situated outside the downtown, but there is a metro station 100m and a supermarket 300m from the hotel. The staff is gentile, and the room has a good size. The breakfast is just normal.

Excellent hotel. The new. Large rooms. Great bathroom. There is a kitchen with all the amenities. Good breakfast. Underground parking for an additional fee. Very good location, close to the subway, close to the exit of the city. Highly recommended.

I've chosen this hotel mainly bacause of the very good reviews. Hotel is nice and tidy, tastefully decorated and even if it's not in the city centre can be easily reached by metro so its location doesn't seem to bother.
However, what surprised me most and I has no price tag was staff attitude. I can't even say that they were properly behaved, yes they would do whatever were asked for but I didn't see a smallest sign of the smile ( was talking to 3 different reception staff) and have never heard a gretting while entering the hotel or leaving it. It is not what you do in 4 star hotel because of its rating but it's just a matter of good manners. I had the feeling that their work there was some kind of punishment. I believe that one's attitude is one of the main tools in the hoteliers industry, it costs nothing but changes a lot.
Also for people who have real problems with sleeping please be careful some rooms might be noisy (we had two different) - in the first one I could hear the water flowing all night and it the other the kitchen area was loud... don't know what it was.
Hadn't have a breakfast booked but there's a nice pastry place 2 minutes walk from the hotel.
If not for the staff attitude I would mark this hotel as 4 or even 5.

Checked the hotel from tripadvisor, and noted all the good reviews. However the hotel was very basic. It had a kitchen, but not any plates or similar. So the kitchen was useless. The room was quite cold and the air conditioning was noisy. The toilet was always cold.

However a great location, just a couple of minutes from the metro stop. We didn't have any breakfast at the hotel. We found a small shopping mall just 5min from the hotel, near the IPO metro station. There are some great breakfast places, where you could have a breakfast for 5€.
