Stayed in this hotel for three nights. Rooms are good size, well soundproof and very clean. Very good bedding. The general atmosphere is more business than tourism. Hotel with good value for money but too far out for us. (Nothing to do in the neighborhood)

this should be a 5 stars hotel! prices are great and rooms are just perfect. I have been to many hotels around the world and this one is by far one of the best. Too bad that its far from the city center but everything else its perfect.

The hotel is very clean and the rooms are very good. The hotel is located in one of the most well known streets in Porto but in a quite zone providing some comfort. It is not very far from the old town. You can go easily buy bus, taxi or metro to every where. It is also close to the... More

Top of its game for a 4 star hotel. A smart, modern, surprisingly quiet and a relaxing hotel (for non business guests) with very good service. The soundproof room was clean, the spa excellent and bed and linen superbly comfortable. The only down side is its position approx 7 kms from the city centre and historic district so you need...

Stayed in this hotel for three nights. The hotel has a modern atmosphere in the common areas, with great and friendly staff. The rooms are less modern, but still very comfortable. They are spacious, with a big hall, bathroom and good and big bed. We've had dinner in the restaurant the first night and were surprised by the level of... More
