          the cleanlines, central near Sao Bento, the staff gave answeres to our request, if you want to be in the heart of the old city it is the place

        • Family with children
          8.2

          No problems with internet conection in the room. Clean, modern room.

          No air extracotr in the bathroom.

        • Couple
          8.2

          Depending on the room, you have a wonderful view over the old town of Porto.

          Since the hotel is located almost on top of the train station, depending on the room, you may hear all the announcements from the plateforms in the early morning.

        • Group of friends
          7.8

          Very central location, superb view from the room to the city (the only reason to choose Superior category room), confortable bed, wi-fi connection in the room

          Superior room could be better improved- small space, old equipement, very noisy air-conditioning specially at night, not the best deal for the rate I paid

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          Situation. Free WiFi.

          Electronic minibar with not very good prices.

        • Couple
          10.0

          Very nice location and beautiful view from the corner room. Room is very comfortable and well-designed - with windows on two sides of a building and huge mirrors inside, so the room seems bigger. The bathroom is really big, light and very clean. Mini-bar in the room was filled with different kinds of beverages.

        • Couple
          7.0

          Room was truly superb, especially for the money. Location is central, but at the top of a steep hill from the train station!

          Room service was pretty poor - my hamburger and chips was a beefburger (i.e. no bun) and crisps! Reception staff weren't great in terms of attentiveness - stood there waiting for people to make eye contact or say "one second" instead of tapping on their computer. Free wifi doesn't reach fourth floor.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          Front desk was especially helpful and friendly. Excellent service from them. We were here on business and they booked a taxi for us to get to our meeting as well as showed us maps of the area where our business was. Room was good. Internet good. Location excellent. Close to shopping and walk to port wineries. Close enough to subway even with dragging luggage. Took direct subway/train from downtown to airport. Great direct connection.

          Beds a bit hard but not so you can't sleep. Mini fridge not useful for personal items - would be charged if any items were moved inside the fridge so we did not even open it.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          Wonderfully friendly and helpful staff, very comfortable room, and located within pretty easy walking distance of everything you want to see in Porto.

          The parking garage was difficult to maneuver, very sharp turns and small space. But the staff was very helpful, and they kindly moved the car in and out of the garage when needed.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          View over the city was terrific from our corner room. Good location to main railway station (take #22 tram up the hill).

          Breakfast was not good value

        • Single
          8.2

          Large room, very clean and good large confortable bed plus separate desk and chairs.

          There was a bit of noise in my room from the nearby train station, however when the AC was on this could not be heard.

        • Couple
          7.4

          Nice, clean room ; very helpful staff

          A few minor complaints : we tried the restaurant once, and were really disappointed given the prices ; a maid walked in on us at 8pm one evening ; when we asked for an iron, they lent us one, but no table, as it was "broken", so we had to use a chair (bed wat out of reach) ; the view from our room was just ugly

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          The location is excellent. The hotel is very comfortable and clean and quiet. Th e rooms are a reasonable size with good bathrooms.

          Although tea and coffee making machines are stated as being in all rooms both in the hotels literature and on the web, only 'superior' rooms in practice had them.
