I will keep this short and sweet. Rooms good, food good but staff unbelievably good. Customer service unequalled in any IHG I have stayed at. Worth staying at any time as Porto is a beautiful city. It may be a bit out of the way but once you use it as a base there are loads of good restaurants in...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 19 August 2016

This hotel sits on top of the hill in Gaia which is across the river from Porto. The outside as with many buildings looks a bit dingy but inside is a beautiful very large lobby. The staff were always helpful and bar staff/waitresses were especially nice and engaging when we were there. The front desk staff upgraded us to a...

The room was modern and clean, and the bed was large and comfortable. The breakfast, though not included in the price, offered an excellent variety of fresh and tasty items. The hotel had an attached restaurant that provided good opportunities for dining and drinks in the evenings, all in a calm and pleasant area next to the lobby.

Very nice, peaceful, comfortable bedroom with a very nice view. There is free Internet in the hotel. Breakfast was very complete with lots of different things you can choose from. The staff was kind and helpful. It's not very far from the centre of the city, but you do need to take a taxi to get there.

Hotel room is OK but the "restaurant" does not match the same standard. Go anywhere in the neighbourhood. Long awaiting times. Staff tries to work hard but the overall "organization" seems to be not adequate.

The holiday in has spacious, well equiped, clean rooms. It does a very good job as a business hotel. There is really nothing that would hinder a good stay in general. The only thing that could be improved is the check-out policy. When staying with a group some more flexibility for a late check out for one out of several...

PROS 1. The hotel decor is excellent. Size of main lobby and room also is good. 2. The staff is very cordial and friendly. Despite reaching around 1.5 hrs after check in time, the room took more than 20 min to be cleaned and ready, I suppose for which was provided complimentary coffee at the main lobby bar. 3. The...

Staff very friendly, lovely clean room with fab view and great food would recommend travelling to Porto to stay at this Hotel. Train from Airport takes about 45 minutes and costs 2.55 euros. Ask for a view of the River as at night it is wonderful.
