A tall building with a great view of Porto (for what it's worth!) The hotel is a bit out of the centre of town on the wrong side of the river. You have to get across the river either on foot, which is quite a long stroll up and down hills, or on the metro. The hotel restaurant is expensive... More

This high-tower business hotel is located on the Southern side of the river in Gaia, and It takes about 10 -15 minutes to walk to the metro stop and another 5 -10 minutes to reach the Porto center, so it takes quite a long time to cover the distance. There are some shopping opportunities at walking distance from the hotel,... More

My bathroom had no hot water. I bathed with cold water and was transferred to another room late in the night after my body became shivering and they were not able to repair it.

Stayed here for 2 nights out of season. From the airport we caught the metro to the nearest stop to the hotel, it was a 10 mins walk from there. From the outside the hotel doesnot look very impressive, needs a good paint, but once inside there is a total change, clean and modern with nice bar area. We were... More

Excellent hotel - clean, good staff and great facilities. It is within walking distance of a metro station and outside the hustle and bustle of the Porto city center. We had a very enjoyable stay and an excellent dinner while we were there. The hotel has non-smoking rooms and a very nice bar. ATM in the lobby.

Very nice hotel, quite and near to bus, train and metro stations. It has a very good breakfast and it is near to el cort English the biggest shopping mall in Porto. It is just not that perfect in room service and hotel facilities but it's price is relevant to it.
