“Nice hotel, but WiFi not suitable for work”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2013

I was happy with the hotel and the nice service. Unfortunately, the WiFi was really bad, and at least in 6th floor working was in practice impossible. Really bad, as I need the net a lot for my work. A bit long way from center.

A good hotel in the commercial area so not ideal for tourists wishing to walk. That said, the hop on hop off buses pass by the hotel and they are reasonably priced. We bought a 48 ticket for 22 euros which included a boat trip on the Douro and a guided tour round a port cave. Breakfast was plentiful and with a good variety. Our air-conditionibg didn't seem to do anything and with the windows open there was a lot of traffic noise and shouting from the school opposite. Rooms clean and free wi-fi worked very well. Impersonal and front desk not really interested in answering tourist queries. A few minutes walk from Casa de Musica and indoor shopping centre. 10 mins walk from Crystal Palace park with good views of the Douro.

Hotel is located about 25 minute walk from downtown, where most touristic attractions are. Subway station is not close either so you must take a cab or bus if you don't want to walk. Nice front desk personnel, average breakfast and bar, lots of tourist groups, which made getting breakfast food a bit challenging as the tourists were quite pushy, cleaning dishes which were not replaced quickly. Hotel does not offer a place to print boarding passes. Room was of a good size for European standards, bed was comfortable, bath amenities were average to poor, cleanliness was not a problem. Lots of conferences at the hotel as well. In summary, an ok hotel away from touristic attractions.

Can't ask for more from a city center hotel.
Perfect for business trips and well situated
Clean, modern and quiet enough for a good night sleep.
Good size rooms and bathroom. LCD TV and free WiFi.
Good breakfast.
Great value for money.

We have stayed at this hotel many times. It has parking on site. The location is good, as it is a lovely walk down to the river, through the old area of Porto, the cobbled streets and the Ribero houses. On arrival, we were given an upgrade to a suite, which was a lovely. My one criticism would be the bar, the service on a Saturday night was sooo slow. There was no staff, we asked at reception, we actually went outside, walked round the block to find a pub, but eventually came back to the hotel, and still no staff! The reception staff are all lovely, very friendly and helpful. We will stay here again.

Room Tip: No view from any of the rooms, city centre hotel. Was noisy, but to be expected, as on main road.

The rooms were clean (ours needed a little maintenance, but I'm sure they would change our room if we complained), the staff were nice, breakfast was tasty, the location quite good and the prices very competitive.
There's not much to say here, it's a safe bet if you plan on staying a few days in Porto.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2012

This hotel has been recently modernized and now seems more sleek and fresh. The rooms are still average but given the price they are very acceptable - clean and comfortable. They do need transparent curtains because the rooms on the west side of the hotel look directly onto the windows of the next building which is only about 50m away. The main green curtains give the rooms a weird glow - not a colour I would have picked. Very few toiletries in the bathroom but again this is acceptable given the price (but bring your own shampoo - the hotel shampoo is not nice). Very strangely, the beds have waterproof mattress covers but still manage to be very comfortable. Free wifi in the room which works perfectly. Great value buffet breakfast. Friendly staff. Great location for walking to shopping and Casa da Musica. Also very easy to get to from the highway if driving. Parking extra but easy and I was not charged for 2 days even though I went over 24 hours which was nice.
