Room was spacious and warm but lack some comfort, for example a four star hotel should have duvet not wool blankets. The furniture is outdated, a mix between neo classic and rococo, just kidding, pure bad taste.

Being so near to sea we would expect that the hotel had a beach inspired decoration.The carpets on the corridor have the logos of the previous hotel name, with the tear and wear of those days.

Average breakfast

Now lets talk about the bright side.

Bathroom recently renovated and in pristine conditions. Great location, 50 meter walk from the beach with wonderful balcony sea view. 10 minute drive or one and a half hour walk (river front bicycle path all the way) to VNGaia wine cellars. Great wi-fi connection in the rooms.The staff is great, very polite and helpful. Easy parking in front of the hotel.

Room Tip: The rooms in the 2nd floor were recently renovated

This hotel was possibly the cream or the crop back in the 70’s but now, to say it’s outdated is an understatement.
The owners must renovate. Aircon is from 1970’s as to the outdated decor, lift etc.. The balcony felt like I was in prison.

Breakfast for a 4 star is more like a 2 star with a very basic choice, coffee from a machine type. Pool and Spa is out of the question. Looked unkept and out of date.

Really sad to have to write this but it’s true, I feel I must warn those wishing to book for a romantic weekend by the coast line.

Only plus is that it’s 5 minutes walk to the sea and the front of house staff are friendly and helpful.

In my view, you should shut down and refurbish.

On the seafront close to the bus service (11 & 12 for the old town). It’s ideal if you want a haven away from the furious centre of things; especially if you want to cycle or walk into/from town. Porto old Centre is about 9 km away, €12 or so by taxi or less than €2 if you take the bus. Clean, nice rooms; not a bad breakfast and personable staff. So, yes, overall a decent hotel experience.

Hotel is fine but old , stuff is nice, food ok, but the views of the ocean are unforgetable.
It is worh of value, and easy to reach to center of Porto by walk.
Choose room with the view othervise you missed the real thing.

Room Tip: only rooms with the ocean view

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.
