Other reviews and the hotel front desk makes the bus stop walk much more difficult than it needs to be. For the bus to Casa da Muscia station, just walk out the front door of the hotel, across the courtyard to the mall. Walk through the mall , out the front entrance and keep walking straight across the street through... More

The check in staff was friendly and the room was good and clean. Whilst the hotel might not be in Porto and a way out, it certainly is perfect for the shopping mall and the best of it all is that you can eat in the mall very good and affordably plus have a very good view from the shopping... More

A good place to stay if you travel by car and have opportunity to be located a bit outside from the centre. What I liked is that the place is quite quiet, and there's a big shopping centre just 10 meters outside the hotel entrance.

Everything is clean and the service is great. The breakfast is delicious, the location is near the airport. I extremely recommend it. During the weekends the rates are low so it's a good deal for tourists and family.

Went there just for one night for a conference in Gaia. Made the reserve by phone when I was 100 km from there. The indications the staff member gave to me were perfects and made me arrive with loose time and gas in the endless motorways of Porto entrance. The hotel is located at the Arrabida shopping mall wich is... More

Booked in for a conference. This hotel is in a very grotty part of Porto--maybe the grottiest. Consider this is a Mercure, the hotel itself is also rather tired. Public spaces are OK, but the rooms (I saw two) are smallish and tired. Cigarette burns in the carpet, very small desk, 24" TV. Bed is rather firm. Wifi is atrociously... More

We booked this hotel through a 'secret hotels' deal on Hotwire and got an excellent rate of around €40 pee night for two without breakfast. The rooms are well sized and comfortable with good air conditioning (very important in the summer). Access is a little tricky without a car however there are a few ways to get from the hotel... More
