Our party of six was clearly and repeatedly told we could only have the buffet dinner as it was a Sunday. Being exhausted and other local places closed we gave in to eating at the hotel.

This was one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. I stayed with my father on a recent trip to Porto (or, more accurately, for a day trip to the national park to the northeast). This hotel provided good access to the motorway network and was remarkably cheap to book. It was so cheap, in fact, that we booked... More

Wow - it was the biggest room we got in Portugal. The family suite is really comfortable, unfortunately ours was without balcony. The only shortcoming was a bit noisy air condition, which of course you're able to turn off. The breakfast was great with a very good selection. Kids were pleased with variety of sweet rolls. The lobby area is... More

Stayed in the 2bed family duplex suite for 5 nights over Xmas. Aside from a few minor glitches (heating in the ensuite bedroom was not working properly, not the easiest access by car without gps, main bathroom downstairs far from the bedrooms which means kids have to go down the steps in the middle of the night or enter the...

Enjoyed our stay in a Suite during the Christmas Period. It was my 75 birthday and the staff made a fuss of me. We had an excellent meal in the dining room, which was sadly very empty on the night of the 26 th Dec. Service as a result was 100% spot on. We enjoyed our three days in Oporto,... More

Above average for the brand, still having some limitations to be considered premium as plain breakfast, poor wifi signal in the room or too tiny gim. The room was huge and very comfortable, very nice sleep quality. Very competitive price too. The hotel is out of Oporto downtown, not maybe the best option to explore the city but very well... More

Had a mini break here to explore Porto. Price was very reasonable however the hotel is a little bit out from the action (but within walking distance or short metro ride as others have said).

This is a really nice property. The rooms are large, very clean and very well furnished. More "American" style than European (bigger rooms, bigger bath rooms). The lobby is gorgeous and the staff very accommodating (and English speaking). The hotel is fairly close to the riverfront (walk-able if you're in shape, but a quick and inexpensive cab ride if you're... More
