Staying at Oporto for only one night, for the Oporto Marathon and recommended by a friend for the quick access, this hotel is really a express hotel, with the minimum expected for a 3* hotel. My experience starts very bad, with the first contact with the staff with no sympathy and saying that a late check out is impossible after... More

Close to the airport and a 15 min walk to the Metro just across the water. Room was excellent, clean and modern with free wifi as standard (it was patchy though but not an issue). Buffet breakfast included for all guests and a 24 hour bar. The neighbourhood was quiet and well located for those needing to move around the... 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!

Near Porto, close to the airport, with most of the highways right there at hand, Holiday Express Exponor is a secure option. Moreover if you are exhibiting at Exponor.

Hotel is located several km far away from Porto airport. So it is used as Airport hotel which was my case too. You get what you paid, classical holiday inn standard, good rooms, and service. with Very helpfull staff, this is what I would like to admit . Absolutely satisfied for price which I have paid.

There are some nice restaurants within walking distance towards the port and over the bridge for a good selection of fish restaurants. Metro is on the other side of the bridge to Matosihnos, but...
