Not 4 starPosted Oct 8, 2013
Location: The boat trip along the Rio Douro, visiting the wine cellars (even if you do not drink) and eating fresh grilled fish cooked by the beach.
Plus points: well located between the city and the beach free car parking on site Breakfast included in room rate Negative points: First room had bad smell of cigarettes so housekeeping moved us to another room Despite being told that the heating had been turned on, we could only get cold air in our room so at night it was very cold every night even thiugh it was warm outside in e day time. Breakfast choice. okay with eggs, bacon, yogurts, juice, pastries, cereals and meats but very low quality ingredients

Ok hotel,missing some servicesPosted Sep 23, 2013 on Hotels.com
I think hotel is ok location for few nights stay. Easy access from Airport and to the highway. Bus going to center just infornt of hotel for 1.80€ one way.Free parking, though parking was not big, some parking along the street available too. Hotel was clean and room was nice and spacey. Super market just next door. Big minus was the wifi was really bad, connection cut every minute, or could not be found at all in level 5 or in the lobby. they do not either have computers for guest use. Spa was also a bit wornout, would not choose for spa holiday. Also the massage was not impressive. Overall rate OK, but not great.

Pleasant hotelPosted Sep 6, 2013
The hotel is very nice to stay in. It is fare from city center but has a convenient bus line to the center. There are a few parking spaces belongs to the hotel that cannot be reserved, but there is no problem to park in the street.

A Great Hotel for FamilyPosted Jun 2, 2013
Pros: Location, swimming pool, lovely staff
Cons: The shower hot water lacks from time to time.
Location: Very centered, great range of transport, not far from airport.
The location is great, the staff is really lovely, friendly and helpful! The swimming pool is excellent for little ones, the water temperature is just perfect! A good breakfast and restaurant, with all the warming hospitality you can only expect from Portugal and its people. They love children and are always glad to help them (very satisfied parent!). It´s silent and spacious. My only tip will be about the shower/bath water. The hotel is always busy, and maybe the water pump is not being enough for the guest amount. When we had a shower, the hot water failed after some minutes, later it got back in strong sprays if hotter water, and then cooled down again...If the management could solve this problem, it will be perfect!

horrible hotelPosted Nov 19, 2011 on Hotels.com
The lobby looks very nice but do not let that fool you. the rooms are shabby with stained carpets and the beds were the worst i have encountered in europe. we checked out after the first night even though we were to stay two nights. the staff of the hotel was very nice and helpfull which was the only good thing about this hotel.

You get what you pay for.Posted Apr 21, 2011
This hotel suited us. We had hired a car so the free parking was a bonus. The bus stop was just outside the hotel so we could get into the centre of town quickly and cheaply and Porto transport is excellent. The hotel front desk was friendly and helpful. The room was rather 'old fashioned', but it was comfortable. The bathroom was lovely, clean and plenty of hot water. The air conditioning was pretty old, so we had to have the window open, and the road is very noisy. The breakfast was fine, normal kind of things with no frills but fresh and clean and a wide variety, cheese, cold meats, egg, bacon, rolls, croissants, toast etc. We ate in the hotel one night (mid priced) and it was fine, but only two choices and no menu, but the waiter/chef was charming. No wine list, the drinks came from the bar. For best transport option get an Adante card and ask for Adante24 its good value and you can use all the transport options in Porto. Don't forget the visit the Port Lodges, they are wonderful and some tours are free and include tasting. Overall Porto is a great place to visit.

Nice hotel, good locationPosted Nov 10, 2010
For staying in Porto, this hotel has a pretty good location. It's not in the city center, a little ways outside, in fact. But they have free parking and the bus going to downtown Porto has a stop right outside the door. Breakfast is rather sparse. Meals at the hotel are expensive but good.
