If you're travelling by car, this hotel is great, as it's not terribly far from Porto or the port wine lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia. We were on public transport, and it's very easy to get into and out of Porto by bus and regional railway - just catch the train to Coimbroes and the hotel is less than 5 minutes' walk away - behind the Burger King. However, it's a bit tougher to get to the airport by public transport - it did take us quite a while, but maybe the trains didn't connect up as well as they could have.
The hotel itself is fine - nice, friendly staff who speak good English and are helpful. The hotel is about a 15-20 minute walk down to the port lodges - take a map as they're not well signposted. It's not very far to Porto - probably about 45 mins walk so on a nice day it's a good stroll across the bridge, but taxis don't cost very much in Portugal so you might prefer to take a taxi over.
The rooms are clean, modern and reasonably spacious. And cost us a bargain €35 per night, not including breakfast (but Porto, like everywhere in Portugal, has a plethora of good bakeries and supermarkets, so just stock up the night before on a few things to eat for breakfast and you'll be fine). We couldn't find cheaper accommodation, and this hotel, although seemingly designed for business travellers, served our purposes very well indeed.
