6/10 Good

A decent hotel in a good location. However there was a property next door being renovated which meant there was banging,drilling going on all day. The staff were generally sullen and uninterested in the guests, you were left feeling not welcome. Good breakfast. Bus stop opposite the hotel for Porto. The experience could have been so much better with a more positive attitude from staff.

6/10 Good

The hotel is in a great location for sea views. But... there is A LOT of building work going on around it, so it's dusty & noisy. We paid extra for a suite, only to discover that there was a building site right the other side of our bedroom wall. There was drilling and hammering shuddering through the wall into the evening & starting up again early in the morning. It was also situated immediately under the rooftop terrace with metal chairs scraping on the hard floor until the early hours. Not exactly relaxing! We asked to downgrade our room & to move elsewhere in the hotel but the staff were not prepared to do this. We weren't exactly happy to have paid extra for 'the best room' only to discover it was far from that!! The room was a little dated, but OK apart from the noise... and breakfast was pretty good.

4/10 Fair

Pretty but old fashioned beach side hotel. Pluses Are location,view and rooftop pool. Minuses are small rooms, not very friendly staff and the rooms have no soundproofing so you can hear other guests coming and going

Hotel by the Sea
The hotel is one of few in Porto which is on the sea front, so is the hotel of choice for this consideration only. The rooftop terrace has exceptional views, however, it was most disappointing that the pool wasn't open, despite the relaxation in guidelines the previous week. We paid the full price and there was no mention on the website that it was closed. The pool was open at our next Porto hotel, for example. The breakfast doesn't vary, and the beans went missing for two days, and the sausages completely after a couple of days. The coffee and fruit juice were good. A little variety would add a great deal to the offering, especially breads and cold plate. The rooms were comfortable and the choice of TV channels was good.
