Porto is a very historic city..so much to see.? My son and myself were there primarily to watch our team play Porto in champions league..but had the added bonus of staying at a stunning city too..port is distilled there and has storage vaults down near the large river that runs through the place a..there are 2 tourist busses going in different sections of the city but well worth the fee..the hotel is lovely and.pristine in its cleanliness..i think really I would have to describe the hotel as high end business accomadation. Its a bit out the way from all the tourist destinations and situated in a urban residential area..taxis from here will set you back between 12/15euros..to the town centre..great value for money unlike some of the other football destinations we have been on like Sweden and Denmark a..hope this gives you just a little insight have a great time ..
Spent 4 nights here with kids (21 & 19) and thoroughly enjoyed hotel. Large, comfortable rooms, breakfast had a good selection, including excellent fresh fruit. Used the pool/spa which was refreshing after a day walking around Porto. It took us 30 mins from hotel into Porto centre using metro which was completely ok for us. One reason for choosing hotel was availability of car parking by hotel. I parked without using hotel's car park, no problem.
WONDERFUL HOTEL, EXCELLENT FRONT DESK TEAM AND EXCELLENT DINING ROOM STAFF!!!!!! This hotel is surprisingly well located, on the outskirts of Porto, easy access, equipped with balconies in every room and the beds are very very comfortable The spa in this hotel is excellent and the metro is within a walking distance. a super market is near by as well as a public hospital.
This hotel is definitely off the beaten path. It is situated about 20 minutes from the centre of town with not much around it. Close to a hospital and residential area. We opted to take the metro which took about 20 minutes to get to the centre. It is about a 10 minute walk. Our room was very modern, clean and well appointed. Front desk staff were extremely helpful with information and suggestions. Their breakfast buffet was great with plenty to choose from. If you don't mind the trip into town I would definitely recommend this hotel.
This hotel is well appointed with spacious rooms, a fine restaurant and bar and lounge areas. The food is of good quality and the range offered is wide. All fine if you like cold food because even that which was meant to be hot wasn't. Disappointing that they can't sort out a simple thing like hot cabinets. The staff seemed under-trained. In the restaurant they consistently whipped our plates away as soon as the last mouthful was raised to our mouths. There was also a strange system in the bar - night after night the barman had to go to the restaurant to get a bottle of Mateus Rose, meaning a five minute wait, and on one occasion a lengthy queue. It seems short-sighted to have insufficient staff to deal with drink requests as we all know there is considerable money in drinks. The staff in the bar the first evening did not always ask for room numbers and seemed unconcerned about our large party ordering drinks. I heard, but have no first-hand experience, that in the pool there was a charge for everything, towels, flip-flops etc. I don't expect that in a hotel of this claimed quality - it should be included. The situation of this hotel is difficult. It is way out of the centre of Porto, about 20 minutes walk from the metro. This makes it okay for groups and business people who have transport, but would not be good for independent travellers without their own transport. All in all, good value for money, but with a little extra effort this hotel could be amazing.
The hotel is very tidy and the staff look well formed, even though they had many High School students as employees (from professional courses I believe). I had a standard double room on the 9th floor, which was very spacious and had a nice balcony. The bed was very large and comfortable, and it would be perfect if the headboard of the bed didn't had the fur peeling (from being old?). The bathroom was very good with 2 bath options, a bath tub for an imersion bath and a shower cabinet. I usually prefer the bath tub with proper curtains to allow to take a regular bath, but it wasn't the case. I can't consider this a negative point since I had the cabinet option. The breakfast is very good and I believe it can satisfy most people, I was very pleased with it. I also used the SPA, and the pool even though it is small is good for relaxation, and I also enjoyed a fine full body massage. To finish the review, the Hotel is a bit far from Porto center, you would need to use your own transportation method, or taxi to go from it to the city or airport. I believe they have proper underground parking on the hotel, but I left my own car outside in the regular parking spaces which were plenty.
It's a 15 minute drive away from the city center. The room was a good size and had a comfortable bed. In the room we found a mini bar, coffee and tea facilities and a great balcony with a great view. The breakfast was tasty with hot and cold items, many baked goods (sweet and salty), fresh fruit and vegetables. The reception staff were most helpful. We had a problem with our rented car and they contacted the car rental company and solved the issue.
So it's a nice hotel. Looks modern and it's clean but nothing really to write home about. The location is bland with absolutely nothing near by apart from allotments and stray cats. No shops at all. So it's a good 20 minute walk to the nearest metro. Food. Restaurant for dinner is a buffet. Serving average buffet food which some was cold namely the chip wedges and breaded chicken. Breakfast is also a buffet but again average with fruit selection and scrambled egg. No smoked salmon which is always a judge for me. Also the tables did not have salt or pepper (basic need) and other condiments were in small squeeze packets. Spa. Now that's a joke. I booked because I wanted to go swimming during my business stay but actually the pool is nothing more than a large bath. Swimming is not possible. Rooms are modern, clean and tidy. But other guest noise prevents an undisturbed sleep. I would not stay here again on my next visit. Defiantly go for somewhere nearer to the city and shops.
very nice and comfortable hotel. the rooms are spacious very clean and the furniture is new. the breakfast is excellent. the food is delicious and the presentation excellent. the personnel friendly the only disadvantage is the location . I will definitely go to this hotel when I will visit proto in the future.
Very nice modern good looking hotel, rooms are nice, well equipped and very comfortable, breakfast was amazing with plenty options, launch was not so good (food was salty, ice cream was very bad, etc).
