Very nice and clean hotel. Personal is very kind and professional. The hotel is just 10minutes away from the airport by car and the taxi costs ca. 15€. The hotel works with taxi companies and they can arrange the transfer to the airport 24hors a day.

We stayed here purely to visit Porto. We chose the hotel because it had parking and was by a bus stop; we were not disappointed. Getting into town was only a twenty minute journey right to the centre, or you could get off at the big shopping centre in the north of Porto. As far as the hotel goes, it... More

We enjoyed the hotel and it was a good location. Only a 15 minute bus ride to the city centre which was a great idea because Porto is a busy city. We were able to park no problem and the staff members were great. The room was comfortable and met our needs.

Very nice hotel and friendly staff. We parked our vehicle at the hotel and took the bus in front the hotel and went downtown. Great city to visit and the bus station was downtown so it was easy to get back.

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.
