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.
