Terms and conditions
Extra charges may apply for children. Incidental charges, such as room service, are not included in the quoted rate.
The amenities and/or facilities may not be located at the hotel, but within a reasonable distance, and additional charges may apply for use.
First night we asked for somewhere local to eat and were sent on a 45-minute walk on the river side before we hit the first restaurants. Other than that the staff are helpful, knowledgeable and speak several languages. The hotel, along with a few
others, is located in the middle busy intersection of motorways, although it does have a nice size garden with a pool and a playground. The public transport links are not great (a bus AND a change on to a metro are needed to get to Porto city centre), so we were forced to take a lot of taxis
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short drive from hotel
Share a cab in to Porto with fellow hotel guests, there are always people waiting for cabs at front/asking for bus directions at the lobby.
