This is our second trip to this hotel. The first time 8 years ago (the last time in Porto). The first trip I used points to book the room. Upon arrival we were upgraded to the Suite (I think there is only one in the hotel). It was a huge room with a huge balcony. This trip we brought our two boys and was able to book this hotel and Suite directly. The entire hotel is very clean and contemporary. The staff is all friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet is very quality with a variety of options to suit everyone, including hot food (eggs and sausages) a choice of fresh fruit, cereals, cheeses, yogurts, coffee, tea and breads. We enter our room with a couch that flips out for the kids, we have a large double bed, seating area, desk area, bedside tables, large bathroom with separate toilet area. Mirrored walls which make the place look even larger. Then the veranda/patio area. It's even bigger than the room. You could play tennis out there. All to yourself with a table and chairs. The bed is very supportive, but I prefer them that way. Room temperature is comfortable and adjustable. The location of the hotel is on the outskirts of the main city area, but just hop the metro and get off at Casa de Musica and it's an easy 5 minute walk from there. For us it was a no brainer. Large contemporary and clean hotel with a great breakfast and easy to get to, with loads to see just in that area as well. The hotel staff also have great suggestions for local places to eat that are delicious and easy on the pocketbook. Will definitely come back here again! Room was €105 per night for the four of us including breakfast.

Clean hotel with spacious rooms; decent breakfast. A little away from the main city area/ river area - you can use public transportation but can be a task to figure out. Great restaurant and cafe options near by. There is also a super market nearby with various options to buy chocolates and other Portuguese treats. Will recommend to stay if the options near the river area are not affordable or not available.

My first time in Porto - I went to watch a Champions League match and wanted to make the most of the 24hours I had there. I expected a basic, no frills accommodation in the outskirts of the city - what I got was a very stylish, comfortable room in an ideal part of town - great local restaurants & cafés, two blocks from the 'Music Box' concert hall - oh, and I didn't actually have tickets for the match yet. On the eve of my arrival - I contacted the Front Desk via email asking for help in securing a great seat for the match. Bruno took ownership of my request and was in regular contact with me re the options. When I got to the hotel, the ticket was there, waiting for me - He had picked it up at the box office in advance as the match was likely to sell out! Outstanding!!! I enjoyed the match and the environment at the stadium thoroughly. My seat was amazing!I toured the town in the evening and then again all day the next day. What a beautiful city!! I can't get over how much I enjoyed it! I will definitely be back, and will certainly be staying at this hotel again. Great value, outstanding service and ideally situated between the old town and mid-town. Thank you all at the Quality Inn Portus Cale! This was the greatest, 24 hours in a city I've ever had!

Staff was friendly and very helpful, rooms good size and very clean Breakfast was avarge, every morning to same food ,also quite far away from town around 5km .other ways nice small hotel Won't recommend for someone who will go for weekend and looking for party

This we selected as we frequent the choice hotel chain . We were pleasantly surprised this property was in a great location. Accessibility was good for us as we were driving & had a car. Nice accommodation with great breakfast.

I find this hotel quite good. We had very big room. The room was clean. However it was a bit chilly there, especially in the bathroom. Breakfast was fine, standard continental one. The wifi was quite slow.

This is the second time where I'm in this hotel. The rooms are very spacious, clean and quiet. The breakfast is really good. Only the internet (which is free of charge) is quite slow. The staff is friendly and really helpful when you need something. Even if it's a low budget hotel I feel very comfortable here.

Good Hotel well located on a busy main street with lots of shops and bars in the area. Visited for just one night on our way to the Algarve and it was great for this stop. Parking was a bit of a problem as there are fees and limits on the street during daytime hours but free overnight. Rooms are a decent size and comfortable.

Excellent location, new contraction, comfortable rooms, pillow-top beds, plenty of towels, great breakfast, helpful staff, surrounded by wonderful restaurants, Casa de Musica, 10 minutes to the beach, easily accessible by bus or taxi.

Everything went smoothly with this hotel. It is very well located, with many options of restaurants and shops nearby. The room was very large. The Internet was very slow during my 2 nights stay, I could barely open any website without having to wait for 30 seconds. The staff said it shouldn't be this way, but I couldn't get a better connection. The bathroom had a weird smell of wet towels, it was the only thing that really bothered me.
