              We arrived earlier and received a room - though not a perfect one... but anyway, point for this! Nice view from the 17th floor bar. Breakfast ok, but would be much better if served on the 17th floor...

              Overall, the hotel seems to be at the right time to be renowned... We got a room at 2nd floor between 2 elevators!:) the window was somewhere behind the wall and not exactly let the daylight inside... The TV was so far away from the bed, one could hardly hear or see anything.

              Was upgraded to a very nice room with two balconies for the same price without have to ask.

            • Older travelers

              This was a good location for accessing all the tourist areas or Porto. The staff all spoke very good English. The rooms were spacious and the bathroom accessories above average.

              The bar area has a great 360 view of the city but the furnishings are dated and worn out and the windows were rattling in the wind. It would be a lot more attractive if it was to be done up.
