Stayed only one night, but the bed and the room was very comfortable and clean. Since is a tall building you may expect a clear view. The staff is polite and helpful. The breakfast have a huge variety of good quality products, one of the best hotel breakfast that I've had.

This hotel was very reasonably priced. Helpful, friendly, English-speaking staff. Lovely decorations, large rooms. FABULOUS view from 20th-floor suite. Unfortunately, not within walking distance of shopping or restaurants. On-site restaurant nice, but pricey. Must take metro to the downtown area.

Great hotel and value for money: - Polite staff - Cleanliness - Food options on the restaurant - Friendly environment Great for business as the hotel is located outside town with easy access to the main motorways.

My favorite view from this side of the river to Porto, by night and day One of the best breakfast I had in hotels. The staff and the view is great, as an active person and a sport lover, could be nice to have more treadmill in the gym, just in case the weather outside.

My good friend Jose booked us in here, and the rate are very competitive. But what brought the value to mind was not so much the price (cheap as it was in European terms) but the service. The staff were superb, and the rooms were decent and clean. I would go there again without question. By the way, the bar... More

I stayed at this hotel for almost 3 weeks while being on a business trip in Porto. The hotel is located in Gaia, so it's a good fit if you have work to do in this part of the city. Prices were really good, around 55EUR/night (incl. breakfast). Hotel is clean, warm, in a very good shape. If you get... More

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
