Take a taxi to town. Life is very comfortable and affordable! The staff is knowledgeable, helpful and efficient!!! The rooms were very clean and very large. Parking is a bit more, but worth it. Internet is free and the breakfast is wonderful!!!

This was yet another of my business travels and hence the location for this hotel didn't matter much as I had a rental car. Nonetheless, the hotel was quite proximal to most tourist spots in Porto and about 30 minutes to the Porto Airport. The accommodation was rather satisfying, clean and neat rooms, not too noisy, helpful staff. Free wifi... More

Very beautiful, comfortable and modern hotel. I was surprised by the huge size of their standard rooms. We could even play football there. Evidently Sporting Clube de Portugal football players agree with us so they stayed there at the same time as we were. Very friendly staff helped me to open the window after I signed them a promise letter... More

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights while on a group tour in September 2014. The hotel is wonderful, if not outright luxurious. The room was big (bigger that I needed!), very nicely appointed, bed was very comfortable and a chair looked like a throne. The bathroom was nice and clean, TV had lots of programs, and tea making...

Everyone was really friendly and even the hotel director showed up one day to help to solve an issue. Good breakfast although should have a bit more variety. The room was big and the wi-fi was fast. Will come back.
