What a wonderful hidden gem this hotel is! Just fabulous!! The location is perfect, for those of us who want to be by the beach and away from the noise and grime of the city centre. The room was nicely decorated, super clean and with the biggest super-comfy bed. The swimming pool and Jacuzzi were just great, the breakfast choice was superb. There are three bus services stopping virtually on the doorstep, which take you to the city centre. Numbers 11 and 12 go straight to the city centre hub, near São Bento station, whereas number 902 goes a bit further out to Boavista. All the Reception staff are super efficient, friendly and happy to assist, providing outstanding customer service. This hotel is now my first choice and I plan to return there next time I visit Porto, hopefully for a longer stay (I stayed for 7 days).

Room Tip: Ask if they have special offers, e.g. stay 4 nights and only pay for 3. Room 202 was very good.

Oh, what an amazing spot! Right by the ocean! Gorgeous view!
The staff is very friendly and helpful with suggestions on how to get around.
The breakfast buffet was delicious! So many choices!
Quiet room and very clean.

Bare in mind that it's a hotel that has not had any renovation in the last 15 years, but it's worth it for the rate paid. It was a great choice!

Honestly, for a Golden Tulip I expected more but the deal I got on Booking.com was too good to pass up. We have a pretty big room with an ocean view from the balcony. It's comfortable and clean and everything works well. It doesn't have the luxuries of a 5 star hotel like bathrobes but it's still nice. Breakfast is very good and a decent spread for 7.5 Euro.

Downsides
There is no room service or cooking service other than the affiliated restaurant Casa Branca which is next door. So if in the middle of the night you get the munchies or need a cup of tea you need to go to the restaurant. If it is closed, too bad.
They don't have portable irons so all ironing must be done by their staff.
Staff are generally nice and helpful.

It has been a good stay so far.

We went, the three of us , to spend a week in Porto.
We chose this hotel because of the location initially.. next to the beach and silent...
There is a restaurant beside called Casa Branca that serves good food in case you are lazy to go out..
But the STAFF really made the difference!!! My father has mobility problems and does Peritoneal Dialysis... so we had to have the supplies from Baxter shifted to the Hotel 2 days before arrival..They were very helpful and genuinely nice...
Special thanks to Andrea, Pedro, Carla, Claudia, Solange , Sr Oliveira , Cristina... and others that belong to this amazing team...
Breakfast is delicious! Strongly recommended!!!

Room Tip: any room will be fine

I enjoyed my stay here for several reasons but I would caution anyone against leaning too heavily on the 4-star rating. This seaside property is clean, with lovely views, and my children were thrilled with the proximity to the beach. However, the place is outdated. This is noticeable in the very details that typically earn a hotel a 4-star rating, such as interior design, furniture, spa facilities, and green initiatives.

Regardless -- as I've already said -- there is much to like here. The staff is well-spoken and attentive. The breakfast offers good choices. And the cooling sea breeze blowing in through the windows can make up for a lot. If renovation is still underway, as others have suggested, this place may earn its four stars yet.
