Good location and value for money. Good view from the restaurant at the top floor. Free wifi at the lobby To improve: 1) It was an issue that the credit card payment system did not work on Sunday 5/6/2011 at 5am (I could have missed my flight!) 2) Windows in the corridors and restaurant need to be cleaned 3) Description should explain that wifi at the lobby are (nice sofas) is free. 4) Room carpet was clean but has spots that make it look dirty, perhaps the hotel shoudl change the carpets for otehr type of flooring.

Very spacious well located accommodation on main avenue but with none of the noise and fantastic views over the city of Porto. Although the breakfast buffet was a little disappointing, overall this represented very good value for money given the location and spaciousness of the room.
