it's really nothing special. Poor furnitures, old details, kind of barocco stylish bed and curtains. the bathroom is small and with no heating. it's not the ideal place to get for visiting Porto. but if you want to stay close to the Matosinhos waves it's cheap enough. I've changed the following day for Sheraton Porto.

This was the most expensive of the hotels we stayed in on our travels in NW Spain and Portugal, but it wasn't the nicest by any means. The hotel needed sprucing up and seemed dated and depressing. We booked a room well in advance and took the confirmation form with us to reception, only for the receptionists to behave as... More

Just a 10 minute walk from a magnificent beach, but right on the tram line that leads into town. You can also get here by tram from the airport with just one change. The hotel staff are friendly and the room was clean (but no views at all!). Breakfast was basic but filling, avoid the orange-coloured"juice" and the urn of... More

By chance we found 'Hotel Porto Mar' situated centrally in ocean side suburb town Matosinhos well connected to Porto. The hotel was absolute jewel for what we needed: charming with wonderful interior, big rooms, location is superb -... More

I stayed here with my husband while waiting to see a medical specialist and for hospital appointments at what was a very stressful time . The staff were incredibly helpful, sympathetic but non intrusive. To complicate matters we had our dog with us. We were given a balcony room, great for our dog, which was clean and comfortable. All the... More

My husband and I booked the Hotel Porto Mar through a booking website and were a little apprehensive, we need not have been. The staff were immensely friendly and had no problem when we arrived earlier than the check-in time, having our room ready for us in a few minutes. The hotel is clean and the bedrooms are a good...

My Girlfriend and I landed in Porto Airport and got us a hotels-in-porto-list from the toursit info point. Called a couple and decided on the Porto Mar. Turned to be an excellent decision. Getting there: Metro in Porto is a straightforward thing. So no hassles. One stop, change Metros and there you are. Reception: A friendly young man who spoke... More
