“Nice hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014 via mobile

Me and my husband stayed here for 2 nights in June 2014! The hotel is very nice and clean, the staff are very friendly and polite! The rooms are pretty, nothing special but perfect for a quick trip in town! TV, nice restaurant, clean room and bathroom! We had a nice stay! Would recommend to people who has business trip or visiting town!

This Mercure is just like most other Mercure Hotels I have stayed in, you can expect everything to be in a good and in working order, no hassles with check inn, rooms ready, staff is friendly, breakfast has a good variety, fresh juices, fruits etc, The hotel is situated right next to a very large mall which is convenient if you have the time for some serious shopping.
Overall a very good hotel with good rates.
Congrats to the manager and his staff,

Room Tip: Ask for higher floors, it is worth it to take a Superior room on the 5th floor, spend a little bit m...

This hotel is very reasonably priced for what it offers. The staff are friendly and very helpful with any information you need. The rooms are clean and the restaurant has good food for a very good price. It is right across the courtyard from the mall which has lots of eating and shopping as well. Easy to access tourist sites by a short taxi ride - a great choice!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

The hotel is extremely clean. It was fancier than I expected it to be. The staff spoke English very well, and gave us tips on what to do around the city. The bathrooms were very spacious. And you can watch TV in English. It was a great place to stay in Porto. Parking was only 5 euros/day which is really cheap.

However, It was on the edge of the city, so we had to take a taxi every day. However the reception can call you one and it was only 4-5 euros.

Other reviews and the hotel front desk makes the bus stop walk much more difficult than it needs to be.

For the bus to Casa da Muscia station, just walk out the front door of the hotel, across the courtyard to the mall. Walk through the mall , out the front entrance and keep walking straight across the street through the parking lot Keep walking along side the hospital until you get to the next street. Look to,the right and the bus stop is right there.

A reasonably priced alternative during the day is to take a taxi from the hotel to the port wine tasting area for about 5 euros and then walk across the bridge to the historic area.
