We made the booking over the phone and we were surprised by the friendly, yet professional, attitude of the reception staff. The hotel is nothing fancy but clean and reasonable priced. For an extra 10 Euros, the hotel will book a taxi and pay your ride to the airport, very convenient. Breakfast is included (avoid if you are not hungry)... More

Everything was as promised. Decent bed, free parking outside (or 3€ indoors), good included wifi. Breakfast was standard, not special, apart from real espresso and pasteis de nata, so I was very happy!

Arrived early Sunday morning (10 am) and my room was available for immediate occupation. I have stayed at this hotel once before and found it convenient and well equipped. They are now doing evening meals in the restaurant which are basic but tasty. The hotel is walking distance to the beach front at Matosinhos which has a fantastic Boardwalk that... More

About a 15-20 minute walk to the train station. Great links from there wherever you want to visit and explore in the City. Plenty of parking was part of the appeal to us. Good room. Recption/Bar/Eating Area very basic and pretty unappealing although breakfast was fine.

This is a standard Holiday Inn Express. Rooms were as you would expect with newer and/or updated appointments. Everything was clean and looked well cared for. The hotel is a bit of a drive from downtown Porto, but it was fine for a night's stay. There were several restaurants nearby. Staff were English-speaking, friendly, and helpful.

The Hotel is in a nice and quiet area, easy to get and calm to sleep. The rooms are big enough, but not too spacious. Nice windows to look outside. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel offers a pizza service with competitive prices by a pizza house near.

This Holiday Inn Express appeared to be quite new. Some 5 to 10 minutes from Porto airport by local taxi it was clean, efficient and friendly. Check-in really easy, kettle in room, FREE WIFI and a reasonable breakfast selection all made for a very acceptable stay.
