Spent one night here. Hotel is average quality for what you pay. Very friendly staff at the reception. Breakfast nothing special, small selection of warm and cold food. The gym is just the size of a guestroom with one treadmill, one bike and a strider and the absolut basic equipment for a muscular workout. Just like everything in the hotel... More

We've just returned from a five-day holiday using this hotel as our base. Yes, it's a bit out of the way of the main tourist attractions but what it loses in location it makes up for in charm. The staff here are top notch, they were friendly, helpful, charming, with welcoming smiles that made us feel right at home. We... More

an outstanding front desk team.... Had several interfaces with them and they were outstanding. The room air-conditions did not work, but was advised that this was a seasonal think, however they were helpful to open one of the windows even though it was the 18 floor, after I signed a waiver. The only complaint is the very poor, or inadequate... More

Excellent service from the reception staff and rooms are clean and a good size. Got a room on the top floor with river views, no complains at all. Breakfast has a wide choice I stayed for one night on a business trip and next time I will come again for sure. Only down side if you wanted to visit Porto,... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in April 15. The hotel is situated about 3 km south of the city and is not ideally suited if you are planning on using it for a base to see the city unless you are prepared for a 15 minute walk to the metro station or want to catch a cab into town. That... More

What makes the difference in this hotel is however the staff. From the first moment of arrival where Sr Baptista made all the difference, all... More

If you want to be in the centre of the of the old town of Porto then the Holiday Inn is not a good choice. It is in fact 2-3km on the other side of the river in Vila Nova de Gaia, however, does offer good panoramic views of Porto should you book a river view room. The hotel is... More
