I am mostly a hostel traveller, so at first I did not quite like the idea of staying in a cold hotel (my friend was alreadystaying here, hence the choice), but this one was just OK. The room was spotlessly clean, quiet and the hotel has also a kind of "living room" with TV and a PC for the guests to use during 30 minutes (or more if nobody else waits). I did not expect such a relaxed atmosphere in a hotel.
The only thing which might be a little drawback is the location. For those who just need to spend a quiet night reading book/watching TV this is a perfect place, but going down town from here is a bit complicated (last metro service soon after midnight, and we did not figure out during my 1 night stay how to enter after 10pm in another way than using the parking access :o)), and the hotel bar is a bit expensive for Porto. At the same time, the metro saves the location during the day (there are places with much more difficult access around Porto).
Overall this is definitely a good place to stay and have a rest.
