                      Staff very helpful. Good breakfast

                      Plastic sheet fitted to bed which made it very hot during the night

                      Higher floor rooms (8th and up) have a great view over Oporto.

                      Periodically visit Oporto and had stayed there before. Switched to another hotel because of room cleanliness (specially the carpet). This hotel is for me a last resort, can recommend it, but is at the top of my list.

                      close to the metro for easy connection to town or airport.clean rooms,good entertainment.good range of food for breakfast.

                      no kettle in room to boil water for a drink or to sterilise items if required for medical purposes.

                      The windows can be opened -- important if you have allergies or have been placed in a smoking room. The views from the 15th floor are impressive.

                      I asked for a non-smoking room, was placed in a smoking room, and when I asked to be transferred, was told that the hotel was full. There is no wifi in the room, and you have to pay extra for wifi in the lobby. Swimming pool isn't free either.

                      Staff a little brash, abrupt or rude. Extras you have to pay for ie a game of pool per hour 7.60 euros !! internet as advertised 2 euros per 30 mins - yes this is a 4 star hotel and other hotels of the same quality allow free access in there reception/lobby areas. The spa staff loss custom (1person 80 euros) as we wanted 2 massages but were given 3,5,6,7 and finally 8 before they said they could actually do the treatment despite we going to the spa the previous day and were told that we can go anytime as it were no problem with booking space. For such s respected hotel and rating - please try harder or retain a standard of your quality.

                      There was a lot of space in my room and the breakfast included was very good.

                      Not enough storage space in the room. Need a chest of drawers.

                      We enjoyed our stay very much. I was pleased to see extra "heavy" blankets in the room to use. The staff was excellent every where. The map we received at the desk for walking around had the hotel on the very edge. We would have liked to have one with the hotel in the middle so we could have been more adventurous and not worried about getting lost. If we could have purchased a map of the city, that would have been wonderful. The bath mat was too small for a tile floor so it wasn't as safe as we believe it could have been and tile floors are cold to stand on. When the staff called cabs for us they came within just a few minutes. We really appreciated that.

                      The hallways had no ventilation and were very had going from our room to the elevator.

                      *Booked a Junior Suite which was spacious and comfortable.

                      *Very bad food in the à la carte restaurant. *Everything has to be paid for. Internet at 2€ for 30 minutes isn't acceptible anymore these days, 10€ for a quick swim in the pool neither. I was, however, positively surprised that they didn't charge me for sneezing in the lobby...
