It was a non-descript hotel in a non-descript area. It was safe, it was clean and it was exactly what we expected and paid for. It is about 10 mins from OPO airport and maybe 20 mins from old town Porto. The staff was friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean. Its kind of like McDonalds,, not fancy, but... More

We were flying out of Porto, Portugal, back to the USA and wanted to return our rental car and easily transfer to the Porto airport in the morning. We could see the hotel from the bus that took us to the airport to pick up our rental car the previous week and hoped we could get a room which proved... More

The hotel is typical Holiday Inn Express with no special frills, but very nice staff, good, spacious and light rooms and a good location for Exponor. 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...

It is true, that this hotel is a perfect location for being near the airport - just under nine minutes to the car rental return. The hotel is clean and the room is nice, it's not huge, but very comfortable and clean. It is located across the river from Porto and right along the docks with shipping containers lining the...

So, I'll be honest...its a Holiday Inn Express and not the Ritz. BUT, if you are looking to overnight near the airport before catching a flight out of Porto, or picking up a rental car in the morning after a late flight, its just great. Its quite modern, with very nice rooms. We also found it very quiet. The service... More

A very nice hotel located at Porto subsurbs. Very clean and modern. About 15 minute walk away from the ocean. Great for people who are looking for a hotel outside the Porto city centre or close to the airport.

Stayed here 1 night before we came back to the states. Wanted to stay as close to the airport as possible. The property looks new, not sure when it was built, but it looked fresh and modern. Room was a decent size, worked for the 1 night we were there. It is off the beaten path, nothing really around you... More

Very close to Exponor, good clean and spacious rooms with cable tv. In our stay we received the standard Holiday Inn client treatment, being the staff very polite and helpfull it's hard to find something bad to say. Recommend for sure!

I usually try not to stay in a airport hotel or an American chain hotel when I'm away and especially when I'm I'm out of the country, because it's a boring and safe choice. I try to be more adventurous in my travels. Local airport hotels have just been a horrible way of ending my trips. They have been in... More

We had 2 rooms that could communicate with each other, which was very convienient eith the kids. Great complementary breakfast with lots to choose from. Only disapointment: the hotel does not...
