        Individual guest reviews

        • Bus sadly we just stayed for one, we overlooked a quiet street and not the main thoroughfare, and was extremely quiet, the central location and the breakfast were outstanding. The atmosphere was great, public rooms were beautifully furnished in traditional style and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The air conditioning was good and bar prices and Selection was reasonable. The food in the restaurant was absolutely fantastic.

          European hotels usually are dark and old, dull bedroom corridors has an institutional feel.

        • Near to train station and excellent just in the heart of one of the main shopping street. Very clean good location and short walking distance from main tourist attractions in Porto Friendly. It’s a great hotel and beautiful lobby. Polite and efficient Service, spacious room.

          Slightly dated quality of breakfast and rude staff. The internet wifi is paid.

        • Great location for walking around Porto and loved the decor. Comfortable rooms and lobbies, staff very kind. Very nice and large bathroom, extremely pleasant bar, the breakfasts had a good choice.

          This hotel Seems very poorly managed, the "Classic" bedroom was surprisingly small.

        • The location was excellent and the hotel was quite clean and the personnel attentive, friendly and helpful. The staff were superb and the TV had an amazing choice of channels in PortugueSe. The breakfast was good.

          The views out of the rooms on the lower level are uninteresting and too many places we didn't eat in. The internet costs and is quite poor.
