A warning to any travellers considering staying at this hotel: IT IS STILL UNDER CONSTRUCTION AND NOT OPEN YET! I booked a 2 night stay at this hotel through laterooms.com, received confirmation of my booking, then turned up in Porto trying to find the hotel - Tourist Office staff, Porters in other local hotels, and even the Tourism Police did not know of the hotel - then eventually found the shell of the hotel still under construction!
Locating local internet access I discovered an email sent by hotel management, after my departure on holiday, informing me that the hotel is not open - but only received once I had arrived in Porto and found no accommodation waiting.
To give the hotel management credit, they did reply promptly to my immediate complaint saying that they had tried to contact me but without success - but the issue remains to which all potential travelers should be aware: This hotel is currently taking reservations for immediate stays (on last minute websites) despite not actually being able to fulfil their obligations to their would-be guests!
Despite all this, it does have an amazing location and so may be worth a visit once it has finally opened - so long as you can be sure it is actually open!!!
