Nice hotel for a stay before the flight back next morning due to proximity to airport but not to visit Porto quickly in... More

We stayed at this great hotel during our recent family trip to Porto, Portugal. This hotel is not in the city center and therefore is quiet and you can actually find free parking outside or in the hotel's garage for 5 Euros per day. The staff is super friendly and helpful and the rooms are nice, comfortable and clean. It... More

Hotel is very close to the highway. Not so close to the city centre. If you have a car, then its a good option. Very attractive ambiance. Free car park. Close to a shopping mall. Very well trained staff. Rooms are large and equipped with all the facilities. Bottom line: 9 on 10.

Chose this hotel because it appeared to be in a quiet area and it was. Short taxi ride to the river and the port wine cellars. Very clean. Room was spacious and well appointed. We actually upgraded to a privilege room and fully recommend it. The buffet breakfast was excellent and plentiful and served between 6.30 and 11 am. The... More

Nice clean hotel, good quality spacious room. Staff very helpful, all spoke good English. Ideally located with a Holmes Place health club next door, and a large shopping mall with numerous restaurants less than 400 yards from the entrance.

This hotel is very well located in Gaia, very closed to Ponte da Arrabida which gives access to Porto center town and all other directions. The hotel is nice, and you can find everything around the hotel such as a hospital, a shopping center, pharmacy, etc.

Hotel is located just beside a nice shopping center, lots of parking places in front of hotel but if you prefer there is also a private hotel parking available. The check-in was very fast and we were warmly welcomed, the privilege room was nice, clean, and we could see the river and a bit of the sea from our window.... More
