This is a new building just off the main road and within minutes of the motorway. It is within 10 minutes drive of a metro station for visits into Porto. It is worth driving a little further to Santa Clara station as parking there is a doddle. The hotel has its own parking and a beautifully tended garden. Rooms are light and bright and well equipped. Breakfast provision is good. We managed to leave things in our room safe, only realising when we were some 300km distant. Sergio and his staff were outstanding, and organised a secure delivery to our next hotel. What a credit they are to Portuguese tourism, and kindness itself to us.
Stayed at the Varzinn Hotel for 9 days during early October. Chose the Hotel as the result of previous Trip Advisor reports and its location in order to visit the cities of Northern Portugal. The hotel is in a residential area, just off the N13 highway. It takes about 20 minutes to walk to the beach and 25-30 minutes to walk to the centre of Povoa de Varzim. We paid extra for a deluxe double room which was situated on the top floor,(3rd) of the hotel. The room was very modern with a chic-botique interior. Mood lighting was a theme with walk- in shower. We had a lovely view of the well kept garden and towards Povoa skyline. The room was well sound-proofed. The bed was very comfortable and the room itself was kept spotless, linen and towels changed every day. Free safety deposit box in the room. Breakfast was of a continental style with scrambled egg and bacon as bonus. As mentioned on a previous review of this hotel the bacon was sometimes cold. The staff were very helpful most able to hold a conversation in English. We hired a car and there are plenty of parking spaces at the hotel. Metro station to Porto 2 klm. I would stay at this hotel again and pay the extra for the double deluxe. Booked and travelled with Easyjet.
Totally adequate no frills touring base, lovely spacious and clean bedroom and bathroom. Everything in good order and in a reasonably quiet urbanised location, 2km from metro station to Porto, €5.40 return fare. Plenty of unremarkable restaurants in the area (bbc chicken & chips etc.) and a LIDL next door. Povoa very quiet and fairly bland but lovely modern seaside promenade built with loads of EU money, great for long breezy walks or safe bike riding. Hotel breakfast satisfactory, reasonable choice.
The hotel is situated in a quiet residential street on the outskirts of this popular seaside resort. We were touring by car and found this to be an ideal base, being located near to the motorway and within easy reach of all the northern tourist areas and towns. It is a small but well appointed. It has a bar lounge and a separate lounge / t.v. area. There is a verandah overlooking the immaculate garden area with some sunbeds supplied. Our standard room was on the ground floor, with a balcony overlooking the gardens and was light, bright and spotless. However during our first night we found that the bed was a bit firmer than that to which we are used to. The following morning my wife, in passing, mentioned this to the receptionist and within minutes we found ourselves on the top floor trying out a mattress in an upgraded room,which are great, to which we were then transferred, at no further cost. The continental type breakfast was more than ample for us. I would recommend this hotel to anyone for a comfortable stay and excellent value for your money
thanks to all at the hotel for making our stay really comfortable we cannot find anything to complain about the room was spotless cleaned everyday the breakfasts were fine plenty of choices thanks again you have a lovely hotel nice and quiet well done guys
This Hotel is really great. We booked 3 rooms, but the upgraded/improved ones. These are absolutely surprising great. Rainshower, Led mirror TV, amazing nice Led lights, super bed, design stuff and most important super clean. You even have some fitness/yoga stuff in your room. Where can you find that? 😁 I really reccommend this Hotel. Also the receptionist people are friendly and nice. We staid 4 nights for business trip.
A good option to stay in Póvoa de Varzim. The hotel is small and that's what I like the most. I was at the 306 and I had a great view to the garden. The room has a good natual light and the bed is also good. The breakfast could be better. It has a resonalble variety of products, but the eggs and the bacon was always cold. The coffee wasn't that great also.
Well run and in a quiet area of the town.A modern room with everything we needed and more. King-size bed, large flat screen TV... Found great service in the reception and the breakfast zone . Underground and safe parking area.
I stayed 2 nights at this hotel. Well located, easy to find, plenty of parking space, great services and fresh breakfast but above all IT'S CLEAN!!! PS: It can be slightly noisy as the walls are thin and you can hear the other room conversations if they are loud. I highly recommend it if you have a car as it can be quite a walk to the beach.
My wife and I stayed at the Sol Povoa Hotel for five night in late May, 2014. We found the hotel to be very well and courteously run, with our rooms and the bathroom spacious and immaculate and serviced every day. We had a room with a balcony at the rear of the hotel, which overlooked beautiful gardens and these are to be firmly recommended rather than those rooms at the front. Although located a short distance from the main road between Povoa and North to Castelo, the location was quiet and peaceful. There is an underground garage if you have a hire car, which we did and a good selection of restaurants are within a 20 minute walk. The only possible shortcoming was a somewhat limited breakfast, but what was served was adequate. In short, this a very nice, well run hotel and the prices are very reasonable. We recommend it.. .
