Very nice hotel, with a great location near to Arrábida Shopping center and with very good access to Porto from Arrábida Bridge. To access Porto the best way is by car, but is easy to call a taxi or an uber and the access to Porto is fast and cheap. The breakfast was great, and the staff was very nice and helpful. Next time I return to Porto I will stay here again for sure.

This hotel is luck to combine a sort of good things: - a short distance to Porto downtown ( 5 minutes taxi ride) - good room - good service - good breakfast - located inside Arabida Mall with all facilities you find in a world class shopping center

Very nice, clean hotel and room. Excellent breakfast with lots of choices. The hotel had easy access and is in a good location, easy to find, parking lot, quiet neighborhood. Friendly staff and good service. The bathroom needed some maintenance and the room was hotter than needed.

Hotel is near to the town, but alongside a shopping mall. Good rooms. Good breakfast. Plenty of safe parking available. We were driving south in the morning, and this suited us perfectly. Will stay again.

Staff pleasant and welcoming.Good comfortable room.Secure car park.Excellent breakfast.I enjoyed a few Portugese beers in the evening,chatted with the welcoming bar staff.My sat nav was playing up so the young lady on reception kindly got me a route map from the computer as I was going to a town 50 km from Fatima.I would definitely visit this hotel again.

This hotel is pretty convenient for a business trip to Porto. It’s easy to reach, there’s plenty free space to park outside and the city center is not far; as well as the shopping center next door. The rooms are comfortable and sleep quality is also good, and the breakfast was also satisfactory. The only thing that I didn’t really like was the smell of the aisle in the floor I was; as soon as you come out from the lift, a strange smell was present. Thankfully it wasn’t like this in the room I was staying, otherwise I would have requested a room change. In my opinion it is not a very good but also not average, it’s then something in between

I chosed this hotel to balance location and price for a short visit of Porto on a business trip with a rental car. The hotel is near to the highway, windows are sufficiant soundproofed and parking is free of charge. The price for the taxi to visit the old town of porto is around 6 to 10 euro (until the bridge on the right side of douro). By car it takes around 10min. I could benefit from the shoping mal just beside the hotel, very convenient. Great view to Porto from the restaurant terasse of the food area in the mal! Hotel Breakfast was very good, service and reception personal very friendly. The room was spacious and clean. I can recommend this hotel!

to start with a great location, with parking spaces and a nice view. The room was very good with high standards. The breakfast was one of the best that i had in Portugueses hotels. The price, for a 4 start hotel was quite nice and we are close to Porto, Arrábida Shopping and Gaia of course.

I usually use this hotel has my base for my business trips to Porto because is very well located in a hill top in the Gaia side of the Douro river, with an easy access by car. The overall level of quality is high and the personnel are customer driven and always available and kind. The rooms have good size and are clean and comfortable. I recommend the break-fast due to its diversity and quality.

Located next to a big shopping center but not too far from the city center, this hotel is a good compromise for comfort and price while visiting a busy city such as Porto. Good quality breakfast buffet.
