Axis Porto Business & Spa Hotel
Ranked #26 of 108 Hotels in Porto
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 18, 2011

The hotel is walking distance to The University of Porto (FEUP) but rather far away from the city centre.
Staff was very helpful.
The room was very comfortable. My room was too close to the lifts, which were making a constant noise: ask to be away from lifts.
A nice breakfast was included in the rather cheap price I paid for this hotel.

Listen carefully as the (actually very straightforward) directions for the 10 mins walk to the Metro terminus are explained by the delightfully friendly reception staff - otherwise you will spend hours wandering around housing estates and alongside motorways in the northern suburbs of Oporto, far from tourist attractions!
The hotel itself is absolutely superb - gleaming marble, tiles and mirrors with en-suite bedrooms fully equipped with all mod-cons, shower and bath, hairdryer, toiletries, towels galore, packets of clensing tissues and sewing kit etc etc. Also a mini-bar and digital safe - but take a travel kettle if you fancy a d-i-y tea or coffee in preference to using room-service.
The piece -de- resistance of this establishment is the gargantuan buffet hot and cold breakfast - running for 3 hours per day - with at least 50 different foods and drinks to mix and match according to taste.
I haven't stayed at other hotels in Porto but I would rate this 5 out of 5. Even the slightly odd location gave us a chance to discover local shops and cafes and it forced us to get to immediate grips with the "Andante" ticketing system on the superbly modern Metro.

Room Tip: Location not a problem after day 1.

This hotel is a great place but it far from all turistic spots and even from public transportation. It´s more an hotel for business and not much for tourists due to his location

Location - Located in the outskirts of Oporto, in a residencial area, there is nothing of interesting nearby - not even nice restaurantes - The closest public tranportation is at Hospital de S. João - a solid 10 to 15 minutes walk.

Rooms/bathroom - good size and nice design. Modern details in the decor. Confy bed and as the area is residencial is very quiet...

Restaurants - Had dinner at restaurant and it was quite good - as expected for this kind of hotel - The breakfast was a buffet with plenty of choices


If location is not an issue - this hotel in an excelent choice....

We stayed here for 2 nights, as arranged by a tour company. They delivered us here from the airport, and on to our next destination - so the location was not a big deal for us.
It is quite a way out from the city centre, and the nearest metro station is about a 15 minute walk away - and not a very scenic route, although we felt safe.
The rooms were extremely nice, fairly roomy, well furnished and with excellent high quality tiles etc in the bathroom. The breakfast was very good, and staff were very friendly and helpful. Our one dinner there was a buffet affair, which was OK.

Everything was new at the hotel. The indoor and outdoor was clean and well kept. The staff was helpful and friendly. The food is great. Two PCs with free Internet near the reception. We had additional free day and receptionist helped me to organize a trip to Fatima.

Due to Flight disruption we chose this hotel as we had been staying in another Axis Hotel in Vianna do Castello. The service and quality of that hotel was excellent and we were not disappointed here either. Reception staff were very helpful and the fact that we had the use of computers in reception for free was a bonus for us. The room is large, very modern and comfortable. The rooms were kept very clean and the food in the restaurant of a very high standard at very good rates compared to the centre of porto. The location is not central but we had an Andante card which allowed us to get into the centre of Porto in 30 minutes which includes a 15 minute walk to the metro station. The Andante card then allows you to go on the train to the beach at Espinho which we loved as the fish restaurants there are good and we also used the card to go to Pavoa at the end of a metro line which had a great beach though the restaurants were not the best. If you want to be in a central position but there are not many hotels with the pool and sauna in Porto so if you want the option to relax certainly worth considering. There is a small shopping mall at the first metro stop and a great shopping mall Norte the biggest we have been to in all of Portugal.
