            • The location is excellent and its best to cab back as is uphill all the way. Car parking near the hotel for a fair rate, the lobby is more modern and about 20 minutes walk downhill from the old town. Service to be very good, the rooms are big and the Bar on the top floor is wonderful. The breakfast buffet is great.

              The front desk staff were unfriendly and the bed was a bit hard. Just the waitress was kind.

              The location can be a bit better to the City Center, internet is charged.

            • The location was good, hotel was very nice and staff were helpful all clean and efficient. The shower was powerful and the breakfast buffet was varied and even always well filled.

              Decor a bit dated, not worth the money and my bathroom was not cleaned I arrived. One elevator was broken, and the other had been broken the day before, the mattresSes were awful. Service was bordering on rude and the food was just plain bad.

            • Location was good for and the hotel was very clean. The staff were very friendly and all rooms were well appointed, and and lovely bathrooms. Restuarant on top floor was best food we had in Portugal for the price, breakfast was great.

              Internet is not free, and the business centre is very poor, the reception made me to pay all days on Check In, bar need to be renovated. Free wifi and a gym would be a plus.

            • Perfect location, great value for money and the staff all spoke very good English. The room was clean.

              The hotel furnishings are from the late 70s, no free internet connection,and there's only 'one' computer u can uSe '1 hour ' a day and a fairly choice of food/drink at breakfast time as well.

            • Great view from the bar and bus Services are good. Metro station is near the hotel and the staff are very knowledgeable & helpful. Standard room is big, food and transport is cheap in Porto.

              Real schlepp uphill on the way back from town and internet uSe is not free. Breakfast is rather poor.

            • Great views over city, tram less than 5 minutes away and real value for money to our opinion. Good price and excellent Service alround. In short nothing missing, nice room and dinner at the rooftop restaurant is spectacular.

              The hotel definitely needs Serious renovation, more friendly the receptionists staff and the bathroom was not clean on arrival. Breakfast was decent.
