“Great hotel, but do tourists really want to stay in this area?”
Reviewed June 10, 2010

Enjoyed this hotel. Friendly staff. Very clean, opposite camara Metro, 25 mins from Porto downtown. Hotel has satellite, big bathroom, fridge and a reasonable price. However, what the previous writer didnt say was more about the location. Its a very safe environment that would suit families. However the bars and restuarants shut early, theres very limited night life and it didnt really suit us, though we made the most of it and forced some of the local places to let us stay till after 11pm!. The beach is very large, but the Atlantic wind is biting and the sand flies everywhere. This is a very Portugese area where little english is spoken and menus are rarely translated. But the locals were very friendly and welcomed us like they had never seen a tourist before. Porto itself is far more touristy and well worth a visit. However its a great place if you want to escape from everything and not be found by anyone.

Great location. Walk to the beach and the all the restuarants and bakeries (so good!!). For nightclubs, deff had to take a cab back to the hotel, but cabs are very cheap. The room was great, LOTs of room, and across the street from the tram that takes you to the city (porto and all the touristy areas). There is also a supermarket accross the street from the hotel, but buy your fruits in the shops by the restuarants(go to "frutaria matosinhos" GREAT little shop! great prices and selection!), far better quality and price. The bathroom was what you get for the money, not perfect. The radio in the room didnt work either and when we called the front desk to fix it, they came up, tried to turn it on, it didnt work, and they kind of just shrugged their shoulders lollll But all in all GREAT hotel for the price!
