I stayed here for several nights on a business trip to Porto (my hosts arranged the hotel). It's a basic, clean, modern budget hotel. I slept well. The location was excellent - at the beginning of the major commercial/shopping street, a short walk from the train station (admittedly, uphill from station to hotel), a short walk to the funicular down to the river. Breakfast was simple, but the basics were all there. The front desk staff all seemed to be completely comfortable and fluent in English, Spanish, and French (in addition, of course, to Portuguese). Maybe Italian and German, too, I just didn't hear as much of those languages. They were extremely helpful.
From a business point of view, it had two limitations: The desk space was small and the chair was a basic plastic one -- fine for short sitting, but not so comfortable for long working periods. And I found the free Internet a bit wonky -- sometimes I got a good connection, other times I had to retry or move to a different location in the hotel. I had some trouble with international Skype connections. If I brought my family to Porto I would be glad to stay here again (and most of the other guests seems to be tourists), but if I'm here on business I might try some place else.
