The hotel is what you expect from a nice Holiday Inn Express so no surprises there. What was a surprise was the proximity to the local seafood restaurants. The hotel staff will provide you with driving directions to a long road packed with restaurants grilling fresh seafood outside on the street. The street runs along the harbor near the seafood...

The staff was friendly and helpful, and the rooms comfortable. Easy access from the highway. We liked the location in the vicinity of the industrial port because it was interesting to walk there and watch all the loading and unloading of ships; we also walked a bit farther to a nice beach. There are a couple of easy to use... More

Stayed for a week, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Reception staff really friendly and helpful with tips of what to see, where to eat, how to get there etc. Made to feel like a very welcome visitor. Hotel and rooms spotlessly clean, tea and coffee maker in room, ice machine in foyer. Location is outside of main city of Porto, but... More

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:(

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
