There are times when you have extremely high expectations about a visit to a particular location. This was such a case after having read the reviews and seen the pictures (on the Holiday Inn website) of this property. Although there was absolutely nothing wrong with this property, the average rating is mostly due to the fact that those expectations were...

Everytime I went to Oporto (on business), I chose this hotel. The staff is helpful and friendly, the hotel is very comfortable and nice. They have a pretty good breakfast and the bar is also very nice. - nicely decorated and comfortable. This is a 4 stars hotel but the rooms are like a 5 star hotel.

Hotel installations are very comfortable, all staff is more than attentive and friendly and room service is fast and delicious.
