8/10 Very good

Seven Night Leisure Stay In Late May 2023
A clean, comfortable and convenient hotel well located for transfer to and from the airport by Metro, and accessing central Porto by foot and further afield by bus and Metro. Bed and waterfall shower were excellent, and extensive buffet breakfast was more than adequate for a day on the town. If staying for a reasonable period of time ensure you are given a room with suitable wardrobe space. The first room we were given hadn't and the second room suffered from construction noise from work next door, but fortunately usually when we were out sightseeing.

A perfect stay
A beautiful stay. The hotel feels luxurious and the staff are very friendly and fix issues very quickly (we had a broken key door and the room was immediately exchanged!) It is walking distance from the city centre and on a quiet road. I could not recommend highly enough!

Beautiful hotel
Lovely hotel and staff. Decor was absolutely gorgeous, breakfast was a good selection and tasted good. Spa was very pretty. Great distance from metro station and bus stops so very accessible. If more of a taxi person, the hotel is central enough that taxis are very affordable…walking can also be an option if you don’t mind hills. My only cons would be there isn’t much storage space to neatly unpack clothes out of sight and I could have done with more plug sockets but it was a single room so larger rooms may be better on those fronts. Would come back and stay at this hotel!!

Porto Girls Trip
I stayed here in September 2022 on a Girls trip. The hotel is very well located just a short walk to the shops, market, and attractions. The hotel is beautiful in layout and room were lovely. The beds were plush and comfy.
