For the last days in Portugal, I picked this 4 star hotel in Porto. I like the size of the rooms even though hotel is located smack in the middle of the city. Very spacious. The rooms were also clean and well appointed. Got upgraded to Privileged Room which came with Nespresso machine and free drinks in the mini fridge, replenished every day. The breakfast spread was reasonable. Starts a bit later at 7am till 11am but this is more a tourist hotel. Location wise it is near several sightseeing spots but due to its elevation, you have to walk uphill or take public transport to reach hotel. One complaint about hotel is the sound proofing. I can heard the conversation in the next room faintly and sound of toilet flushes upstairs comes across clearly. Very polite service at check in and out and also in the restaurant. Staff speaks several languages beside Portuguese. Impressed.

The hotel is located at a central location with all amenities nearby. They have rooms for every budget. However, what really elevates this hotel from 3 star to 4 is their breakfast spread which is top-notch. All the staff is really friendly and helpful, except that one annoying waiter at the breakfast service who first wanted to change our table and next wanted to know why our 5 year old was carrying their own breakfast.
