A tall tower block of a hotel that is situated about 25 mins walk from the centre of Porto. Easily accessible on the Metro (direct from the airport) and with a taxi rank nearby (they are relatively cheap in the city) there is good access to the rest of the city. Inside the hotel is nicely decorated, especially if you're a film fan. The room was spacious enough for a twin; the bathroom exactly what you would expect from a decent hotel; the breakfast buffet (included in our rate) was pretty good (a good variety of hot and cold items); and the live music in the 2nd floor bar was quite good. The hotel staff were all very friendly and helpful. There is free WiFi in the hotel reception area and in the bar, otherwise there is a charge.
