                  Staff very friendly.Rooms very spacious and the viuws there amacing , at one side the ocean ,at the other the Douro River.There is good outside parking which and the weekends is for free.Also there is 3 coffe bars very close to the hotel that you can have breakfast for two for six euros.

                  No Kettle in the room or tea or coffe.There was a bootle of water in the room but cost 5 euros !!!! The water in the shower would go very cold or very hot all of a sudden with out you touching anything.

                  No outdoor places to relax. No pool. Had to pay 20 Euro's just to use the jacuzzi pool.

                • Single

                  The view from my room on the 18th floor The tea & coffee making facilities in the room The bathroom The large, comfortable bed The quiet

                  The gym was so small, it was almost pointless The food on room service The breakfast was ok, but not worth the 13.50 extra

                • Single
                  10.0

                  Friendliness of all staff ,and the cleanliness of the WHOLE place.Food was very much acceptable and there was plenty of choice.Transport, bus and metro was great and so near to the entrance for someone who cannot walk far like myself.

                  THe only thing I did not like was the inability to pay my account with a credit card.I made arrangements with my bank that I would be in POrto but after three attempts I gave up.Good job I had cash available.

                • Single
                  5.8

                  Value for money was the best thing. I was able to park in a private area (not garage though) for free. Also, the surface metro is conveniently located just outside, giving you a great mobility option if you want to pause in using the car.

                  The room had very tired furniture and carpets, and there were humidity marks on some parts of the walls. Soundproofing from the city noise outside leaves a lot to be desired. The breakfast isn't the quality level expected from a 4-star hotel: For example, no fruit available.
