We arrived late after a 4 hour delay and without one of our suitcase due to TAP losing it so to arrive at such a friendly hotel was a joy.

This hotel is clean and tidy. The have a safe but not working and they say"make your coffee or tea in the comfort of your room" don't believe in it because there is no such thing.

Room was spotless as was the bathroom, breakfast ok, plenty of choice but... More

Cheap hotel yet still a 4 star Rooms fine Long wait for elevators Breakfast busy but always plentiful. A good 20 minute walk down town however with an Über costing less than €4 each way hotel certainly ok if you are looking for a decent hotel at a low price.

The common areas are starting to show the high volume of people such as elevator buttons missing and chipped furniture. The rooms are fine for the category.

Great place with fabulous views. The location is perfect for going to the Duoro River area though not within walking distance. The buffet breakfast was great with a great selection of hot and cold items.
