“Fantastic boutique style hotel”
Reviewed 9 February 2013

Over the past years I have become a great fan of this hotel and at each stay I am never disappointed by its quality standards. My preferred room is a corner suite, perfect in all details although not at all grandiose. Just absolutely confortable. The hotel is small and cozy, the restaurant Poivron Rouge offers excellent meals and perfect breakfast presentation. Service very personalized and attentive. Buffet dinners are of superior quality, with a fantastic choice of appetizers. I have had several such dinners here and quality is actually getting better over the years. For smokers they have rooms reserved and even a really cozy sitting room which I find is a nice detail, although I am not a smoker myself. This is actually what this hotel excells on: small details! Revisited and appreciated, I will be back again!

This was one of the best hotels we stayed in our various European vacations.The staff was friendly, the rooms were excellent and within close proximity to the seafront and town centre.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone going to Porto.

Stayed here for a weekend with friends. Although the hotel was away from the tourist area, the local bus and taxi service was very easy and good value. Check in was swift with a complimentary glass of Port most welcome. Rooms were very nice. Breakfast was good and all in all we thoroughly enjoyed our time here. Would return to this hotel if we came back here!

The Tiara Park Atlantic is located within the business area of Porto, but is an ideal base for those wishing to be just out of the resort but close enough to some facilities.

Reception staff our very welcoming and quick registration. Rooms are well maintained and full of all the usual benefits. One great aspect for the ladies is the provision of a superb hair dryer.

In this day and age smoking continues to be a problem but most hotels in Porto have facilities and private rooms for those that wish to do so. This avoids those that do not smoke not having to run the wall of smoke at reception entrances.

The bar area is just off reception and again I found the staff welcoming and very helpful.

The breakfast service and selection is what you might expect for this standard of hotel. However, it lacks what I like to describe the egg man or woman who would be stationed to give you that added choice. One good point was that poached eggs were available on the buffet section which is something rare I think.

Taxi's are available and not expensive close to the hotel and also a Pingo Doce Supermarket just five mins away.

The business centre and small boutique shop is located near reception and offers a good range of services. Wi Fi is available throughout the hotel and functions well.

Finally, I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel for a short break to Porto.

Rooms are excellent & very neat. Most adorable part is the toilet. All fittings are very clean & looks brand new. I had stayed in this hotel for 3 times in 20 days duration by checking out. So all 3 times I got different rooms in different floors & most important to say that all room sizes are similar & everything is exactly similar.

The most important thing of this hotel is there pillow. I had stayed in multiple hotels worldwide but never found such pillow. Steal it if you can :).

The only difference I found out that they served me welcome drink (Red Wine) for the first time but never offered drink later on. Not very sure why because they are supposed to offer welcome drink everytime you check in. May be they take customers for granted if you visit them regularly. This is really I did not like but anyways for one time customer it dies not matter anyways.

A very nice and well run Hotel. I've stayed there many times on business over a few years l fortunately in a suite. The rooms are very equipped with quality fixtures and fittings. The breakfast selection is excellent. I've never eaten an evening meal in the restaurant, but I'm sure it wouldn't be a disappointment.The staff are aways very friendly and professional.

The location was perfect on the Avenida da Boavista. the service was impecable. the rooms were large and well appointed. The free breakfasts wer well stocked with fruits, meats, cheeses, cereals, eggs, all you could possibly eat! The Bathrooms were large and well stocked with toiletries. You could tell that cleanliness was extermely important to them with the number of room maids and those working constently in the looby. The formalities of turning down the beds at night and leaving a chocolate were much appreciated, it is a disappearing touch. The people at the front desk, as soon as they had your name, used it in addressing you and the doormen always had a greeting for you when entering or leaving. This hotel truely earns it's 4-star rating.
