Upon arrival at the hotel, the Bellboys were very attentive and assisted from the car, unloading the luggage and taking it to the rooms. The reception gave a warm welcome and gave a very good impression upon arrival. Unfortunately the rooms and especially the housekeeping did not correspond to a 5* hotel. The cleanliness of the rooms was questionable. There... More

The staff were helpful and the room facilities were excellent! The rooftop bar was great and we were given a free glass of port each after our arrival. Other comments: -Silent at nighttime (10th floor) -Amazing view of the city -Super clean -Nice jacuzzi Just to note: Swim caps required in the pool

Nice hotels with large rooms. Spacious lobby and amazing terrace. You feel the hotel clean and modern. There is two parkings, avoid the one on the right of the entrance, located at the minus 4 and 5, extremely difficult access and exit especially if you have a large car.

We stayed in the hotel for 5 nights and we loved it! Staff were amazing, from check in to check out, doormen, housekeeping ladies who were so efficient and polite. Our room was big, clean and the ladies who serviced the room were brilliant each day, smiley and friendly. Entire hotel, although big, was so cosy. At the pool, you... More

I stayed for 3 nights on business. The hotel is a good average business hotel, with comfortable rooms, OK service, and reasonable breakfast. The location is close to a few bars, restaurants and small shops but is some distance from any of the main sights or activities in Porto. The highlight is the 'VIP' lounge on the 19th floor -...
