Hotel lacked a lift, was only accessible by a steep hill and was a 1.5km walk to the city centre. Breakfast was very ordinary and not up to usual PortoBay Standard. Beds comfortable. Staff were very courteous and helpful.

Hotel is great. Comfortable rooms and recreational areas I'd highly recommeed it as the location is perfect to go to Brave beach or Forno and is 6 blocks from Rua das Pedras. Breakfast is perfect, good variaty of fruits and breads.

Dear GaHunt, The hotel does not have parking, our guests park in the street in front of our hotel, but our street is very quiet without much traffic.
