Not sure why other reviewers were so underwhelmed. This is a reasonably priced, well designed and decent hotel. Within 10 minutes of the airport and (more importantly) a fifteen minute walk from some of the best seafood restaurants in Portugal. Staff were welcoming (thank you Stefanie) and the rooms were comfortable. Breakfast was fine, beds were comfortable and the WiFi... More

This hotel is not a good place to stay for a holiday. Probably ideal for one night either before a flight or after one. The ride to the centre take 20minutes, about 15 mins to walk to the beach. Rooms should be cleaned better:(

We stayed two nights in this hotel at the end of our 10 days trip to Portugal. This was the worst hotel in the whole trip. The room is tiny, the windows were dirty, the AC was working for one hour and stopped for an hour.We were told that this is the policy of the hotel) The breakfast was poor... More

Plus: Staff was friendly and rooms were clean and tidy. Minus: No minibar/fridge (which seems to be the norm), poor and crowded breakfast. A bit too far away from Porto in a rural area without any charm. Aircon wasnt working.

We selected this hotel because it was not far from the airport and we arrived in the night (cost of the taxi from the airport: 19 EUR in the night time). Room was nice and comfortable, very clean. Breakfast could be better, very limited choice, however food was tasty.

I stayed here for two nights, and I am impressed how much hotel you get for 50€ a night. As the name suggests, it is a basic offering, so the fact that there is no full-blown restaurant in the hotel is not surprising. Besides, with all the great restaurants in town, do you really to stay in the hotel for... More

The room was a good size, clean, and modern. Staff were friendly. There was good wifi in the room. Great for being close to the airport. Negative- lights in the hall take a long time to turn on. Very unsettling!
