“Convenient but miss atmosphere.”
Reviewed 25 March 2013

The AC is next to the shopping mall and the Porto football stadium.
Close to the motorway and enough parking in front of the door.
However, the prices of food in the restaurant are extremely high for Portugal, the quality is so-so, but most of all, the place is not cosy. It misses a lot of atmosphere. Boring.

Room Tip: Noise from the motorway if you sleep on that side.

I stayed at this hotel for business and really enjoyed my stay. The rooms are nice and have all the items you need. It is located close to rail transportation or a taxi ride to all of the major sights in Porto. The service is great and each guest is treated special. The breakfast was yummy and had lots to select from. I would recommend this hotel to the business or vacation traveler to Porto. EJ

Stayed two nights at the AC and getting to downtown Porto by the Metro was a breeze. The hotel is modern and crisp. The staff are attentive and hospitable. Shoping area next door has ample selections of cafes and shops. Highly recommend this hotel!

Very nice hotel clean and tidy everywhere. No more than 5 minutes walk from the dragon stadium.

Hotel is also next door to shopping centre which has a wide selection of shops and eateries.

Only letdown is that it's a good cab ride into Porto. Would highly recommend it though.

If you have arrived at the Port for a few days, then you fit the hotel AC Porto. It is located next to the subway, but for the first time find It difficult to.Bolshoy mall closes a hotel. But when you find it, everything becomes much easier. On the subway ride as convenient to the airport (25 minutes) and downtown (10 min). Rooms at the ordinary, unremarkable. I was surprised that Wi-Fi in the room charge. Free Wi-Fi only on the 2nd floor where the restaurant. The impression of the average, because Marriott does not surprise me. This is probably 3 stars, not 4.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less A/C unit noise

Reviewed 31 July 2012

We are loyal Marriott rewards members and this was our first stay at an AC. Unfortunately we found it trying a bit too hard to replicate the cool factor of the "W" Hotel change and were not impressed.

The hotel is not centrally located in Porto though it borders a soccer stadium and a nice American-syle mall. A Metro stop is about two blocks away. The front desk staff tries hard though the room could have been a bit cleaner. Our window had a greasy hand print on it.

The oddest occurrence of our stay was when we noticed a band of gypsies encamped under a road overpass about 40 yards from the hotel.The group including small children were frequently passing through the hotel parking lot. They lit several outdoor fires at night and the next morning they could be observed releaving themselves from the hotel dining room. One would assume the hotel would be taking a more active role in securing the property.

Porto is a lovely city and well worth visiting.
