Room was a little tired but service was excellent. Bar staff and room service very good. Comfortable beds and the swimming pool is a great bonus. Good choice at breakfast and catered for most nationalities. No tea/coffee in room.

Good stay here. Great sized rooms lovely large bathroom. Only issues were that the walls are so thin could hear the people next door constantly or anyone in the hall. Also hotel seems to be in a large car park and a bit of a distance into town but other than that was a great stay which I'd recommend for...

Not very convenient for the centre of Porto, and had little Portuguese character, which I hoped for on a leisure trip. Very busy indeed, so staff had little time to attend to our needs. Buffet meals expensive and unappetising.

The hotel itself is nice and modern, love the interior. The surrounding area will hopefully be updated as time goes on. The hotel facilities are good, the swimming pool is really nice, shame it's only opened between 9am-9pm. The gym, meanwhile, opens from 7am to 10pm. Both have great views of the city. The breakfast is adequate, you need to...
