Not the best view in the city, but if your looking for a hotel for a good night sleep, kind staff and elevators straight out of a post-apocalyptic film then this hotel is perfect for you. Perfect for business and/or short stays.

The Cliphotel was quite average for a city break. Incidentally, Porto is marvelous, even in the depths of winter when we experienced sunny, bright if cold weather. The hotel is well located near the tram station so getting in and out of town is easy. We asked for a quiet room and were given 711. Next to the lift but that was not a problem. What was a huge issue was a very noisy air conditioning extractor fan located right outside the small balcony attached to our room. It rumbled on for much of the night and had it not been for ear plugs, we would have had little sleep. The room heating contraption in our room was also incredibly noisy, so much so that we had to turn it off in the evenings to watch TV and get into bed to keep warm. Also the occupants above us could be clearly heard, clip clopping on the hard surface of the bedroom floor. Definitely not the quite room we had expected. We brought the issue up with the desk staff who, allegedly, investigated the problem and declared that all was perfect. Hardly. The room itself was acceptable, the bathroom small but again, acceptable. Breakfasts were very good and the dining room staff were very amenable. We didn't expect the Ritz but it beggars belief that a hotel can provide you with a room in which peaceful sleeping isn't possible.

Great hotel. Very clean rooms. Next to the metro, which is frequent, cheap & very convenient. Staff great, very helpful & friendly. Would recommend. Great breakfast choice too. Cheap price. Next to el Corte shopping centre

As normal had great short break staying at the Clip Hotel. Spotless, Warm and Friendly.Would like to thank the staff for all their efforts. Deff stay again there. Easy for metro and the shopping areas of Porto.

The hotel is right next to the Corte Ingles store and has a metro/tram stop very close by that takes you to Porto very quickly. Breakfast is simple (no hot choices), but fine. Everything is refilled very quickly. The rooms are fine too, but the walls are thin so bring your ear plugs. Very small elevators! The staff is very friendly and helpful.

I stayed here 3 nights as part of British Airways package. The hotel is modern, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. I slept like a log, wasn't disturbed by any noise either from the street or from other guests. Some hotels have paper thin walls, but not this one! The bathroom was well supplied with thick clean towels, and there was a wall mounted bodywash dispenser in the shower cubical. Good lighting, ample space and spotless. The staff were unfailingly helpful and cheerful, switching from different languages to help guests. I was impressed. The small lobby has a seating area with comfy sofa's and a help yourself supply of free tea, coffee and fruit juices, plus a fridge with bottles of cold water. Alcohol is available and is moderately priced. The huge department store next to the hotel is a landmark, has very late night hours, and serves very good food in both it's basement food hall & 6th floor restaurant. Location wise, it's a 2 minute walk to the metro station, and I made good use of my travel card. A bargain at 5 Euro's per 24 hours, which included the metro from the airport and back again. My only quibble... and this is a tiny one.... The electric socket for recharging phones/tablet etc were on a wall behind the bedside table, but about a foot off the floor. Really awkward positioning,& would have been better to have the socket above the desk. For a 3 star this hotel is an excellent choice.

Put in by tour operator. Bland, a bit dull, 20 min walk into town BUT good for Porto's excellent Metro, right to door. If you're into modern shopping, you'll like El Corte Ingles next to hotel but we'd have preferred a bit more character in city. Breakfast (cold) a bit poor and chaotically disorganised!

We stayed at the Clip two weeks ago for a week.It was well situated next to the metro station and only twenty minutes walk down the hill towards the Duoro bridge. Just across the road was El Cort Ingles which was great fo late night eating ranging from a la carte to a combined food hall.It came in very useful on more than one occasion. The staff on reception were a good laugh as well as being so helpful without being pushy but the room staff were magical. Yes the breakfasts were the same each day but I never found them lacking in any way. The Clip treated us extremely well and we would definitely stay again.Great access from the airport and links all over the city.

The receptionists were always very friendly. The hotel has a very good location, close to metro, shopping, bakeries, market, etc. It is clean and comfortable. The air conditioning broke down, the hotel didnt work to fix it and to compensate gave us a voucher for breakfast. I highly recommend it.

Absolutely brilliant hotel! The location is absolutely ideal - just a minute from the metro, and only a few stops from the centre of town. Our room was spotless, cleaner than any other hotel I've ever stayed in. The Clip staff were extraordinarily helpful - the front desk was manned 24/7 with unfailingly polite employees; on our last day they kept our luggage for us before our late flight, called us a taxi, and let us know that we could purchase tickets for our day-trip to the Santa Inacio Zoo at the front desk with them so we wouldn't have to queue. I couldn't recommend this lovely hotel more.
