The hotel has a prime location and our room (311) was a great size for a city centre hotel. It overlooked the square and had the benefit of a balcony that offered great views. Being at the front of the hotel it could be a little noisy but that was part of the appeal. The hotel is most certainly five...

We had stayed here in October 2015 for a weekend. The hotel is very conveniently situated in the city. We were able to walk everywhere in the city. Our room was quite unique. It was a loft room. As you enter the room, you would walk into the living area (sofa & and TV). There was also a toilet available...

We recently stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. The hotel is located centrally, close to the train station and to all main sights and transportation. We drove and used the hotel parking service for €29/night. Check in was quick and easy. We arrived early, so our room wasn't ready, but we left our things while we went to explore....

We stayed here in March 2017 and found it to be outstanding. It's in an excellent location in the heart of the city, close to the station, but its greatest asset is the staff. Everyone we met, but particularly the concierge staff, were delightfully helpful, friendly and attentive. A wonderful place to visit.

We loved staying here! The room was luxurious, the location central, and everyone was so helpful. Great concierges, great buffet breakfast. The hotel looks out on the square (Liberdade), so ask for the back of the hotel if you think that noise might bother you.

This is a good quality hotel in what must be the best location in Porto We only stayed two nights but enough to get a quick look around the lovely city of Porto. We had a room at the front overlooking the square which was a nice room well appointed and finished with a quality feel, we didn't hear anything...

We enjoyed our one night stay in this lovely hotel. It is located in the heart of the city near the large square opposite the city hall. The staff was friendly and the concierge was particularly helpful when we had trouble with our rental car. The room was large and spacious with a large bathroom with a separate tub, full...

“It is probably quieter at the hotel rear. We had two Juliet balconies so were exposed to city noise, especially on St Patrick's eve.”
