hotel near estadio do dragao for five Dads and their boys.

We have tickets to Porto vs Chelsea Feb 21. Five Dads and their boys looking for a hotel conveniently located near the stadium. We are probably taking the train from Lisbon so public transport will also be a factor. Any advice on hotels, transport and what else to do in the city is greatly appreciated.

The area around the stadium is not very interesting and it is a little too quiet and too urban, there are much more interesting areas to stay in Porto, like next to the river Douro, that way you could see the match and the city too. Besides, right next to the stadium there is a metro stop and taxis are very cheap in Portugal for a foreigner. About the city, a specialist can advise you much better, but Porto is the city of Port wine, there are dozens of 200 and more year old cellars where you can visit and taste the wines, definitely a must.

Hi.

Forget about the Dragao area.

The best thing to do is to pick an hotel near Aliados/Batalha. From there you can catch the metro to the stadium (10 min ride). In this area is also São Bento Train station which is good considering you'll probably want to come to Porto by train. Take the Alfa or the Intercidades train in Lisbon. 3 hours journey, around 20 euros each way.

There are several hotels there. Mercure batalha, Grande hotel de paris, residencial dos aliados...... it's just about how much you're willing to pay...

Have fun.

Sérgio
