Nice room quite design
location. If u dont have a car, dont stay there
Free wifi in the hotel bar but not in the room
- Free Wifi
The location is distant from city center, but with metro system you can get quite easily if you are not in a hurry. The hotel facilities and service was great. It was quite shocking to find a complimentary mini bar (even with soft drinks). The breakfast was perfect. I would definitely stay there next time eventough it is far from city center.
AC Porto hotel is really nice and a modern Hotel
The room was quite big, very clean. The toillete was also big and all the furniture is modern style and very nice.
The staff is really friendly, the breakfast was quite good, and the hours really nice, between 8:00 and 12:00
we stayed for 3 nights in this hotel and found it very pleasant. the room was large and well arranged, furniture was new and design, very nice bathroom, free minibar (and refilled every day). The staff was polite and helpful, breakfast was excellent (lots of choice). there is a shopping center just next to the hotel which can be useful. Being next to the motorway, the view from the room is not the most romantic ever...
Bad point was the location. It is easily reachable by public transport (all metro lines go to this station, Estadio do Dragao) but it was quite harassing to take the metro and walk 5/10 minutes from the station each time we wanted to have a quick break and change clothes. It is not really annoying if you are not in a hurry, but if you are looking for a hotel downtown, this is not the one. Otherwise it was good value for money
This hotel is perfect for anyone that wishes to have a comfortable stay while visiting Porto and specifically if you're going to watch a football match at the most beautiful stadium in Portugal, Estádio do Dragão.
The service is friendly yet professional and the breakfast satisfies anyone's morning desires. It is close to one of the best shopping malls in the north of Portugal and also has the convenience of the metro that can take you downtown or even to the beaches north of Porto.
The front desk staffs were very competent, kindly and courteous.
The room was bright and amply. The ambience was convenient.
The cleaning service was ok, whenever sometimes things like the wash cloth were taken away and not replaced, which was really annoying. I solved the problem by wetting a towel to soap and wash my body.
The “continental” breakfast was ok for me, but I missed my “soft cooked breakfast egg”. I really enjoyed the good pastry, the fruits, and tomatoes.
Points to criticize:
- Only one power socket was not switched off, when pulling out the door card. Under the desk was one socket used for TV and one for the desk lamp. So it was not possible to use the computer with the power supply and having light at the same time. One had always to creep under the desk to change the plugs for working.
- The Internet access was not complementary which is standard in a lot of international business hotels.
- The Wi-Fi in the first floor was overloaded due too much users and had sometime insufficient connectivity.
- Furthermore this room is used by many smokers, a fact that made the stay for a longer time very unpleasant.
- AC Porto claims to have 20 TV channels, but except for a few (BBC, CNN, and Discovery Channel). They are only in Portuguese. In the age of satellite TV it should be no problem to have at least one French and German TV channel.
- Information about political news can only be obtained by Internet.
- The “free newspapers” is not really helpful since they are all in Portuguese.
- In good business hotels international newspapers are standard.
