    Located a little off city center, with construction around, was a little different from our expectation

  • Couple
    7.4

    breakfast service is wide, everyone could find something tasty.

    althrough I reserved a non smoking room. I get a smoking one. I didn't try to change because it was too much of repacking, but such a mistakes are quite painful for radical non-smoker. :)

  • Couple
    8.8

    I can recommend the Superior twin room on the 17th floor (minibar and parking included), it worth the price and has the best panorama in Porto.

  • Family with children
    5.4

    Location to the city, clean, fast lifts.

    Facitities weren't advertised correctly. No mention that you had to pay for the pool & no minibar as advertised just an empty fridge.

  • Group of friends
    9.0

    Very quite comfortable spacious rooms

    Safe deposit box did not work, but we did not need it anyway

  • Couple
    9.2

    Very comfortable spacious clean room, big bathroom, luggage storage available, marvelous breakfast - lots of food varieties to choose, tasty. Located 10-15 min walk from Porto-Campanha station and Sao Bento.

    no tea/coffee facilities in the room

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    the hospitality of the staff, particulrly in the restaurant, always extremely helpful. Fantastico. Gracias.

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    Very good location, close to the metro (connection Airport) and walking distance to the city center and main shopping area (Via Catarina). Friendly staff, good value for the money.

  • Single
    6.0

    Well located, good staff

    Not very clean, tobacco smell, lots of people at the reception. Not a charming hotel definitely

  • Single
    8.2

    The hotel is 5 minutes away from the city centre (walking) and is very clean and comfortable. It is very relaxing to spend some hours in the indoor swimming pool contemplating the amazing view over the city.

  • Single
    6.2

    Nice staff and good breakfast

    My room was very cold. The air conditioning unit made too much noise so had to turn it off. Fortunately there were blankets in the wardrobe I could use. The decor was a bit dated for a hotel that opened 5/6 years ago making it feel old and tired

  • Family with children
    7.0

    The rooms and breakfast in particular were excellent and the hotel overall good and good value for money.

    I was very disappointed that the use of the pool attracted a charge of 10 euros per person per day extra. This meant that although we had picked the hotel specifically to use the pool we could not as it would have added 30 euros aday to my bill and it was not worth it to have a quick sauna/jacuzzi after a dsay sightseeing. I don't know if this was clearly stated on the website when I booked but I probably would have chosen another hotel. I have never come across a hotel that charges guests.

  • Couple
    6.6

    Close to the city center...

    Unreliable intenet in the room, charging for using the pool and obligatory swimming caps

  • Single
    9.6

    Comfortable room and good restaurant.Friendly staff.

    It is a pity that hotel guests have to pay for the use of the computers and the gym.However, this is not really important.

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    the facilities were first class and the staff very helpful and the location was prefect for our trip
