    Very nice modern hotel great staff, room was nice and clean. The restaurant was very good and the breakfast also very good. In a very nice area of the city.

    Hotel allows smoking in the lounge close to the restaurant. The distance to the city centre is not really walkable. The subway is close about 10 min.

    Extremly well located for those going to Porto by car. We went there with our one year old child and the staff was really charming and patient with the kid.

    Good breakfast, option to have internet included, good beds, large bathrooms, back-terrass, efficient service, situated in middle of airport and historical area, prices reasonable with Booked.net - not the Hotel prices onsite

    Ability to use business facilities easily

    Location - it seemed like the hotel was in the midst of a building site. Not sure why it was advertised as being close to exponor - had to take taxi at a cost of around 10-12 euros each time

    The price/quality relation is constantly the best option in the city.

    Fabulous

    Very modern and comfortable, at a very competitive price, and in one of the most wonderful cities in Europe (in the world?)

    The absence of a pool and the poor public transportation were two let downs

    This hotel is a little gem is one of the most elegant parts of the city of Porto. A new building with great design, service, accesses. The prototype of the perfec business hotel (although I could see myself take my family there for leisure as well)

    All was perfect

    Fabulous

    Hotel design, quality and quiet. Didn't eat there, not even breakfast. The room temperature is easy to control. Nice bed and pillows.

    Location isn't good if you don't have a car.

    Superb

    Hotel was great but wifi access was not up to what I would have expected, which was important for my trip. If you do not wish to pay a lot or be restricted to one device (for the whole stay) for internet access, look elsewhere.

    Wifi access would seriously put me off staying again or recommending it to others unless you improved it. We were only allowed one device to connect to the internet all weekend and you charge extra for wifi throughout the week. If this were changed than I would happily recommend the hotel to others, but in this day and age, free wifi is a must and I think its quite seriously losing you lots of business by not offering it!
