This hotel and its decor are quite dated and tired, not "Grande" as the hotel's name suggests and as many others have suggested in their reviews. Internet access was 10 Euros/day extra. Even the in-room safe, no larger than a small shoebox, was 3 Euros/day extra!
The breakfast offering was of poor quality in terms of breadth of offering and the taste. This was surprising, in that, Portuguese food is quite good, and breakfast buffet offering in most hotels in which I stay in Europe are of high quality.
My bed, a full/double sized bed, was extremely firm to the point of stiff.
For the business traveler (or any serious traveler in general), this hotel option is not for you. The hotel's website has beautiful photographs that do depict how the rooms and common areas appear; however, the photographer must be commended, as he/she made these venues appear much better than they do in person.
Upon my next visit to Porto, I will likely select the Yeatman, Hotel Infanta Sagres, or Hotel Teatro.
