Comfortable hotel in good location
I booked a basic single room, which was all I needed. It was roomy enough for me, had a small fridge, nice bathroom, and a safe. Reception was friendly and efficient. It took a while to figure out the sliding panel for the window, but it does give total blackout if pulled all the way shut. Also, the storage cabinets are easy to miss. They are built in not immediately obvious because they have no handles.. you simply reach under, on top, or on the side and pull open the cupboard door. I guess I’m not used to modern, sleek design! But there was plenty of storage. The bathroom was perfectly function and modern. I did not eat at the hotel, so I cannot comment. All in all, a very good stay at an excellent price. Location is excellent to get to the shopping on Santa Catarina. Also close to the Cathedral. Many restaurants are nearby. The hotel has a list, but the hotel itself is on Praça de Batalha, which is up a steep hill from São Bento station. Porto is hilly, so regardless of where you stay, there will be hills. Depending on your tolerance for hills and considering what you are most interested in doing in Porto, then choose your hotel location accordingly. I am a big walker, so the location of the Mercure was good for me.

Check - in nightmare
Worst check in ever. It's an odd setup - with a large table with a laptop computer on it. Looks like a work station. The guy kept making us wait after we told him our name. (it was 4 pm) He went into the conference room (or admin office) behind the glass wall - then came out and gave us our room key. No help with the luggage and no explanation about where or what time breakfast was served. The room was a hole in the wall with no window at all. We went to talk to them to see if we could pay for an upgrade. He said they were full and thats just what the rooms looked like. We didn't move and they somehow came up with another room that was much nicer. I got the feeling that because we prepaid, they didn't have to give us what we thought we were getting. I've never been treated so poorly. I would not recommend this hotel.

Very Good 8.0
We were on a tour and stayed for two nights. We added a third night on our own. Hotel is very nice but bed was hard. First only room available was accessible room, but with my back, I couldn’t use the sink. Breakfast was good, but some things, like Portuguese tarts, they circulate with, so we only had that first day. It set the expectation so we were disappointed other days. We found concierge service lacking.
