    Simply exceptional

    As someone that sleeps on average 100 nights per year on hotels worldwide, this hotel is now on my top 3. New, classy, clean, outstanding staff, the most silent room i was ever. The pool is beautiful and they will make anything to make your stay prefect. I will come back.

    Very good stay, little improvements needed

    Very good suite, amazing 4 star hotel that must be converted to 5 stars with service. All furniture very nice new and amazing designed. Everything was good except the receptionist ladythat doesn't have patience and not welcoming talk when asking for anything. That must be improved.

    Fantastic room and pool

    The hotel room and bathroom had a nice modern look.Our room had a big balcony which was great to enjoy our morning coffee. It was easy to park our car in the garage underneath the hotel ( EUR 15 per night). Location was within walking distance of the city center.

    Great hotel within walking distance to main amenities. Spacious room, comfy beds (watch out for TV behind the mirror!) Staff was very friendly. Cannot comment on pool and spa as we were busy visiting sites. Parking available on site at 15€. Adheres to COVID rules. Highly recommend this hotel.

    A great break Porto

    Amazing stay, very clean and covid secure. Particularly nice touches included the hygiene pack on arrival including gloves mask and hand gel. Staff had some great restaurant recommendations and were able to assist with queries about our visit to Porto. A fantastic location within walking distance of all the attractions and sights Porto has to offer.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    I loved the hotel it was very nice, great helpful staff. However I had an eye lash on my eggs and I showed it to the restaurant lady, she said I see it and took the plate away. No apology. I asked for a packed lunch as we were checking out first thing, we got two slices of toast with cheese in, an orange, yogurt drink and a tutti fruiti drink. I was very disappointed with that considering I was charged 13 euro for breakfast. My advise is book breakfast for the days you stay and not pay anything for when your checking out before Restarant opens. Normally the breakfast is great well worth the money. Please note I am not disappointed with the hotel it’s what I experienced. The restaurant shouldn’t have really charged us for breakfast.
