Stayed at this fantastic hotel from 17th September with my wife who bought me a 2 night break for my 50th Birthday.
We flew from Stansted to Porto and then transferred on the purple line metro straight to Casa de Musica . This costs only 2 euros10 each and travels overland and takes about 20/25 minutes. We then had a 10 minute walk to the hotel.
On arrival we were greeted by a very friendly receptionist who gave us a glass of Burmester port. We were allocate an Executive double room on the 15th floor which was fabulous. We had everything we could have wanted including a cd player and a huge mini bar with an extensive range of drinks and snacks. The bathroon was very nice and you get a good selection of toiletries. You also get hairdryer and a free room safe. There is no tea/coffee room tray.
There is a small supermarket called Pingo Doce just across the road from the hotel where we bought alcohol and bottled water.
Our package included breakfast each morning and a meal on one evening. It also included a tour of Graham's Port Lodge.
The choice at breakfast was very good and staff were very attentive. We had our included meal on the first evening and the quality and presentation of the food was excellent. Again the service was very good.
The tour of Graham's Port Lodgewas absolutely brilliant ! We had a taxi there from the hotel for 8 Euros. We had a tour with another couple and our guide was fantastic. Not only was she very knowledgable and enthusiastic, but gave us plenty of extra glasses of port to sample !
The hotel is situated about 20 minutes out of the City centre but you can get into the City on the number 201 bus which runs very efficiently abour 4 times an hour and stops outside the hotel. It costs only 1 Euro 80 cents for a single trip. The 502 bus will take you to the beach in the opposite direction and is about the same duration and stops outside the hotel.
On checking out we were able to leave our bags in reception.
The staff we found were very kind and helpful and nothing seemed too much trouble.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to stay here again.
