Nice hotel, near public transport.

The staff are friendly and helpful. Handed out maps, advised best places to visit. etc. We asked about getting there and they were quick to respond.
To get there you can take a taxi or use the metro. We were told taxi could be around 30 euros. We didn't use the taxi from the airport, but all taxi's are metered - there maybe additional charge for suitcases.
We used the metro, about 9 for 3 of us airport to hotel. easy to use, metro staff are on hand to help you negotiate buying tickets on the machine and directing you to the right platforms. Take Airport to Trindade, change there to go onto Joao De Deus.
From hotel take metro to Sao Bento - you can get connections to most places from there.
BTW ask anyone for directions they will tell you the right directions but everything is only 10 or 15 minutes away which could be half an hour.
The hotel is actually on the Gaia side.
You can walk from the hotel across the bridge to Porto. About half an hour :-)
Or from the Gaia side take the cable car down to the river front.
Most of the nicer and more expensive places are on the Porto side of the river.
Most of the tourists spots are also on the Porto side.
