Recent guest reviews

Amazing hotel, luzury 5 star hotel at not too bad prices, the spa was amazing and the room was off the scale! it was so luxurious, the mini bar was fairly priced unlike most hotels charging 9 euros for a small bottle of cheap water. amazing for either business or pleasure, although arriving in a tracksuit feeling slightly out of place everyone made me feel just as welcome as any other guest which was very suprising but so nice to experience.

Absolutely seamless in every respect. Outstanding service all round particularly from the reception staff and Concierge. Large comfortable rooms with luxurious bathrooms and no outside noise in the rooms. Spectacular views from the rooftop bar.

I had a problem with my flight back, and the guest relation's staff and front desk staff were very supportive in find a way to help me. Needless to say the others departments also the staff were amazing. The house keeping lady always friendly with a pleasant smile and in the lounge even though it was a bit busy they manage to attend us very well. The room was comfortable and very clean. Thank you for the hard work of all the staff and I definitely will stay again in my next travel to Porto.

Nothing palatial about this hotel . Arrived early by plane but receptionist would not budge from a 3 pm check in policy even though scores were checking out from morning . I have a business meeting later and most unhappy with such an inflexible attitude when it is clear that they could accommodate but just couldn't be bothered to make the effort .

Big room with comfy bed and everything else that you would expect to find in a 5 star hotel (mini bar etc). The roof top bar is nice but a bit expensive. The only thing we didn't like was the wlan connection in our room - very slow and kept kicking us out.

I've been there for two nights for a business trip. The hotel is not located in the city centre: if you want to the centre you should take a taxi for 6/7€. The hotel doesn't look like brand new but it's very well mantained with a classical/high quality furniture. I had a classical room with big dimension and everything I needed: minibar, tea/coffee machine, bathrobe and slippers (very appreciated!!! :-)) and a wonderful view on the sea. The room was very silencious and quite and when you arrive at the floor with elevator you have the feeling of complete silence. Nice things of the room: double sink in the bathroom, sink and shower separated from wc, music in the bathroom, possibility to completely separate the bathroom area from bed area trhough a glass door, big and comfortable beds, they prepare the bathhrobe for you on the bed in the middle of the afternoon. Things to improve in the room: dimension and quality of the TV (VERY poor), the wi-fi didn't work at all (I was on 15th floor). Breakfast in line with the quality of the hotel, i didn't have the chance to visit the SPA. Do not forget to go on the rooftop terrace with the bar: the view is wonderful! Value for price? good, but not the best. I think I will come back again!

When I booked the hotel it was just to sleep one night and leave for the airport the next day. Very friendly, helpful staff. Comfortable and clean rooms. Good view of the sea and very rich breakfast available.

Great accommodation and excellent service. The rooms are really comfortable and the Hotel has all the conditions to have a peaceful and revigorating rest. I certainly will come back and recommend this facility for other guests.

Stayed here 24/5/17 what a dissapointment . Went to the spa found it to be very tired and dirty in need of a total overhaul . Went to the resturant only to be told it was closed food being served on the rooftop bar , went there was aproached by a waiter who took my order for food . I Had to ask him for the wine list , I proceed to order a bottle of wine , my starter arrived and I ate still no sign of my drink . My main arrived still no sign of my drink so I asked again I was then told the bottle I orderd was not available , so he brought me another glass of someting else to try was not good so did not buy a bottle . I bit into my Cod that I orded and it was tough chewy and tasteless really dissspointed at this stage so signed the bill and left . headed downstairs to the main bar only to be told by the bar man that he was closed , if I wanted a drink I would have to go up again to the rooftop bar omg !!! So went across the road to the Sheraton where I was greeted with a warm welcome cold beer and a first class service . Picked the wrong hotel .

The rooms are large and well maintained. Only negative point it was not possible to pay the evening before departure. The personnel is kind and helpful. Definitely I suggest the visit to this wonderful hotel
