The location next to Porto Airport makes it very practical for staying overnight in connection with a flight. The staff was not able to speak German or Spanish.
The garage arrangement. Steps from elevator to garage were difficult. Hallways were too dark. Food- dinner and breakfast is very poor. It did not taste fresh and was probally not as only 3 other people ate there. I have stayed in 5 hotels in Portugal and Pedras eubas was the worst.
We took this hotel before an early morning flight departure. All I can say is we wish we turned up earlier. The hotel room was beuatiful and a great big spa directly beside the bed. Also came with an absolutely beautiful cot for our baby- one of the nicest I have ever seen.
No outdoor signs great difficalty in actually finding the hotel, Especially arriving in the dark
The room was very generously sized and very modern. Because of the large amount of marble and wood used, the room was cold at times. Some rugs or artwork would have made it more pleasant.
big room no airport shuttle early morning
Room was clean and tidy and very close to the airport No, it was o.k.
nice big room and within walking distance of the arrivals hall at the porto airport.
The bathroom/bedroom was spacious
lovely and comfort
Nice friendly staff, clean and tidy hotel throughout. Limited parking with little chance of using the garage if you have a large car due to difficult access.
Close to the airport and to the metro station Very few restaurant in the area
The staff was very helpful and friendly, the breakfast was very good and with great variety, the room was very good with enough space to move around, as was the bathroom. The only thing that "bothered" me, although its probably like that on most hotels, is the shower has a bit too low flow for my taste. The access to the garage is quite difficult for big vehicles, however I got a parking spot right at the front of the hotel in its reserved spots. Besides this two places to park, they also provide parking on a private parking lot around 50m from the hotel, however it closes at midnight. If you go during the weekends you have lots of places to park around the hotel, during the weekdays the problem are the parking meters (during the weekdays you have to pay from 8h to 20h). However, I stress that I didn't have any problems with parking.
The hotel is very cosy and the staff is friendly. No free internet service available in the room.
Very handy for the airport when you have an early flight and free parking outside hotel which is a bonus. Only minutes from a metro station where there are frequent trains to central Porto. Extremely comfortable beds and good breakfast.
They had a great breakfast; nice firm beds; good lighting; near tramway; and nice to have a hair-dryer. Very quite hotel.
Its very good value for money. Good rooms with good price for a very good price
All staff in the reception and the bar spoke very good English and were most helpful. Were asked to put our car in the hotel garage which has very difficult access, narrow, curved and steep and caused damage to car on exit. Would normally have left car in the road outside the hotel but during our stay the road was being dug up and we had to move car. Staff were excellent in trying overcome the problem.
Services was very good.
It's a good business hotel in a town near Porto with a friendly staff. There's an excellent connection to Porto (5 minutes walk from the hotel). Maia itself is just a suburb with only a few restaurants.
Fantastic staff. Good breakfast. Bar and restaurant facilities were good. Could hear everything from the next room. It felt like I was staying in a cheap motel on Interstate 75. Rooms were nice but this is no five star hotel. Very slow internet that was not password protected.
Room and breakfast Price of car parking. They charge full day even if staying just overnight.
Very comfortable athmosphere Pool closed (bad weather)
Execelent breakfast Carpets in the room and below average bedding. No Tea/Coffee making facility and ironing board not available
The price was reasonable and the hotel was decently close to the center of town. The room was quite old looking and really needs a face-lift. The location was constantly filled with aggressive pan-handlers.
Extra charges for use of facilities, Ie swimming pool.
I stayed at the pool floor, on the top level, renewed and with a superb view over the city, with a nice swimming pool that should be terrific... during summer time:) I made a mess of my suit during dinner, and I asked if they could clean it up in the hotel laundry. I found out lather on that they didn't felt comfortable clean it, as that was not their specialty, so they took it out to a professional dry cleaning. thank you! Forget facilities, great service, wonderful people, is the true spirit of 5 stars hotels, and Ipanema Park staff has it.
Good price - value ratio It is a good hotel, but definitely not 5 star by any standards
The staff are superb! we choose this hotel every time we travel up to Porto.Velean rooms, pleasent staff. There is smoking in the lounge which makes it uncomfortable, as Im alargic, so I cant use the lounge.
I did not like to have a drug junkie parking cars in front of the main door at the hotel. Also I did not like to pay to use the pool.
Most of the staff were very attentive and helpful in their suggestions of how to get around the surrounding area, and especially when we lost a wallet - they made many attempts to get it back and despite being unsuccessful we really appreciated it.
Service déplorable. Très loins d'un 5 étoiles.
The room was very big!!! good breakfast. The furniture is pretty old fashioned...and there isn't any wi fi at the rooms, only in the lobby.
Everything, next to all emenities and close to airport.
The hotel was good, it reflected its 4 star status. Reception, restaurant and bar staff first class.
Clean quiet and comfortable with good service and central location within walking distance of the river/seafront with amazing views. Excellent breakfast menu. Restaurant in adjacent building.
breakfast included all the lights didn't work in the bathroom
Free WiFi and a wonderful bartender tending the bar on Friday the 8th around Midnight. The beds were terrible. Hard. In general the room looked 'empty' with even an echo to get one far away from felling anything like in a comfortable room to sleep and relax in.
The breakfast was fantastic. The hotel was very nice and staff very friendly. They initially gave us a room with two twin beds and we went back to reception and they immediately changes us to a new room with a big double bed and an extra twin.
Nice room, friendly staff, delicious breakfast...
the staff was nice and was prepared at any question (ie public transportation, museum hours, etc.). room is a bit old
Hotel was excellent value for money and will be recommended.
Lovely room. Helpful staff. Short walk to the metro. Breakfast was extra but worthwhile. The blind between the bathroom and bedroom was not working. Room service food was very good, except for the side salad.
The friendliness and efficiency of the staff, the excellent cuisine and the modern design of the hotel and the rooms.
comfort with luxury
staff attentive and helpful a little too far from centre for a lengthy stay
Very modern and clean with a good spa and pool and great staff
The actual building- it was fairly new and design was nice. The staff was on the hold quite friendly and helpful. The standard of Sheraton chain is really lacking --this hotel did not provide sufficient umbrellas for guests and did not do anything at all to help guests travel in the rain. The restaurant is quite overpriced and food was not as good. The rooms also did not have robes or slippers until you request for them!
Staff were extremely friendly and attentive. Nothing was too much trouble. Our towels were removed each day by housekeeping and not replaced! We had to keep calling housekeeping to bring us clean towels!
The service is excellent, quick and polite.
Beautiful hotel; great staff; standard room was spacious and well designed; nice spa, gym etc The hotel was located far from the city centre (about 7 euro cab ride - too far to walk).
Nice well located hotel with helpful and friendly staff
Very clean, confortable, wonderful breakfast Nothing
Staff friendliness and relaxed attitude No
The staff were nice and maybe even too zealous (our towels were changed every day even though we followed the instructions available to signal that we didn't need that). The location was excellent and even after missing the last metro/bus we got back ok after a nice stroll through an extremely chilled-out Porto. It would have been great if some of the lovely Portuguese pastries had made their way into the breakfast menu ... :) However, all the other extremely good things about the hotel (including the good bus connections into town, handy restaurants across the street and supermarket around the back) outweigh anything else.
It is clean, the staff is friendly. There is now gym. The food is terrible.
The friendliness and profetional manner in wich we were attended. And the effort ALL staff made to speak to us in English.
The helpful staff on reception.
Very comfortable family two-rooms suite, well sound-isolated, good breakfast with a rich assortiment, the hotel is easy to find from the highway A29 to Porto.
Everething was nice and fine No
It was just for one night but we had a lovely double room with suite. The breakfast was good. No comment
friendly helpful staff.
The breakfast buffet was exellent; the front desk staff were very helpful & knowledgeable; the room views were amazing
Was upgraded to a very nice room with two balconies for the same price without have to ask. The matresses were a little uncomfortable.
The hotel is in a good location and all my group loved the view from the bar
Room was a good size and had a comfortable bed. Hotel very well situated for sightseeing and close to Metro for easy access to and from the airport. Breakfast adequate but could be improved by better quality food.
Great to chill with a beer in the rooftop bar and terrace after a long trip and late arrival.
easy acces to the hotel Big noise during afternoon -reconstruction of rooms or what...
Clean accommodations, professional & courteous staff. Renovation noise directly above us in the morning.
Good facility and modern design Breakfast
Friendly staff, breakfast (good food and nice view over the city) The double rooms are rather tiny, when choosing the standard room. Nevertheless this was not annoying. During the weekend when it was more crowded the quality of the breakfast was less good; f.i. the fruit bowl contained less different types and less nice fruits.
Personal service Poor breakfast
Next to the train station
The location is excellent right in the centre and in a walking distance to most of the sights. The room was a bit small but comfortable and the bathroom had a window with a nice view of the city. Breakfast was excellent and in my opinion is worth the 9€ they charge. We made a reservation to use the hotel parking and it worked out fine. Nothing that I disliked in the hotel.
friendly staff; clean room; good location; great hotel overall room was tiny
Well maintained & comfortable, also a great view Up on a hill
Excellent location, could walk to everywhere. Friendly staff. Rather sterile bar and restuarant - not a major issue
We liked the efficiency and courtesy of the staff and the central location to the fine city of porto and its tourist and business centres. we felt the lounge lacked upright seating and areas for a quiet personal conversation or reading area
Good central position
Restaurant food was bad.
Like design of the place and the prices. some of the staff people were not very helpful,location is not very convenient.
central location. Nice atmosphere. good breakfast room was a bit small
The building itself is wonderful. The location could not be better. The staff were very helping with everything from recommending a good "non-touristy' restaurant to helping us figure out which port wine to buy.
Noisy bathroom exaustion. Breakfast personel always very busy - simpathetic but not effective(for this level of hotel). Public parking more than 5 min walking distance, not sure if safe at night. No mentiont of this limitation on the hotel page - private parking nearby (100m) closed on wekends??
Cool interior, friendly staff, clean rooms and nice breakfast. Also the location is very good - it is in the city centre so you can just walk to see all sights I was a bit surprised about quality of internet connection - it was very slow and constantly disconnecting. There was too dark in the room, but i think it is by design
excellent staff great location
The entrance to the hotel was so beautiful and inviting. The hot breakfast wasn't inviting enough.
location of hotel was excellent. it was also.historic and luxury and personels were very helpful....webliked too much. maybe the bathroom needs a little bit renovated.
Great service, beautifully appointed, very convenient. We appreciated the woman at the front desk who understood we had no interest in bus tours and gave wonderful recommendations for sightseeing and restaurants. wifi was finicky.
Nice classic old hotel in good downtown location. The only problem is there is a substantial amount of construction on the streets in front of the hotel which is an access problem until they are finished.
A wonderful old and formal hotel in the city centre. The courtyard cafe and roof sun terrace were fabulous places to relax.
all staff very friendly and helpful. we have stayed at this hotel many all staff very friendly and helpful. we have stayed at this hotel many times before n/a
Very nice lounge bar at the top of the building.
Staff was excellent, Grappa food was exellent no
The staff was very friendly and happy to serve you. Big spacious room, clean. The breakfast venue was a bit old and the breakfast itself needs to be improved in quality.
The Concierge attendance
The hotel's facilities are fantastic and the staff couldn't be anymore helpful. There was nothing I didn't like about the hotel
All was excellent! All was pleasant!
Great design and services
Excellent friendly staff, superb comfortable and spacious modern rooms, very clean rooms and very well equipped, very good location, excellent restaurants, especially Grappa Italian Restaurant, very well priced with great value for money.
The room service (including the telephone assistant) was excellent. The hotel can improve with isolation, in order to keep a cooler temperature in bedrooms.
very friendlily and useful staff, very clean and comfortable poor service at the breakfast. only one waiter had to do all the work
Friendly and efficient staff, very clean room,
the comfort of the room and the spa. location and the comfusion with the directions to get to the hotel. Outside of the city center, not convenient location!
Breakfast The refrigerator in my room wormed drink!!!!
Excellent check in and front desk service Nothing
View from balkony Still no free WiFi internet
The hotel was spotless in every way and the staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast good Corridors and rooms were a little dark
a newish hotel a long way from city centre but close to metro but certainly NOT up to the four star rating. This is shown as a four star hotel however no service at breakfast, we had to set our own table, food and coffee were cold and waiter staff of no assistance. Manager finally tried to rescue position by providing next day breakfast in room.
Hotel was very clean and nice. Breakfast was excellent. Location was only bad issue.
excellent hotel, nice staff helpfull, rooms were perfect nothing
The entire staff from parking attendant to the cleaning staff everyone was helpful and on top of everything. The room service was absolutely fantastic! The meal was in such a great presentation and very tasty! My personal best experience was the clearning staff. They were so helpful to me, as I had a Maltese Dog, and they understsood how important it was for me to be sure she was happy.
clean rooms; excellent breakfast too expensive internet connection
location everything ok
excellent price for quality location, a bit far from center & even metro is 10 to 15 min walk
The concierge!!!!!! He was Marvellous and his advices were extremely good! The barmaid was really nice also!
Hospitality. Comfortable bed. Good buffet breakfast Poor bedroom reading lights. Cost of mini bar
Very good rooms. Very comfortable beds Lack of swimming pool. Believe main air conditioning unit turned off. Fan only operating in room, to give appearance of air con
Bussiness center with internet conection charged by minut, no sence in this type of hotel.!!! Valet parking 50 euros 2 nights, !!! Bad style
Very helpful and friendly staff Bed and pillows not so comfortable
We really enjoyed the sauna and pool area. We liked that it was close enough to the city to take a quick taxi ride, and yet far enough away to have a very peaceful stay along the river. Very nice lobby and they were friendly at front desk to give us free internet. Fun castle atmosphere. King size bed was actually two beds put together. The restaurant was pricey and stuffy but the food was OK. Definitely go eat at the Ribiera instead.
the hotel staff was helpfull and we liked the fitnessroom, the sauna and the pool. the price of the logan whiskey in the bar was absurd.
amazing building and really interesting common areas. Very grandiose bar and restaurant. Rooms were very spacious, comfortable and quiet. If your bedroom is not facing the river then the view is generally poor, looking out onto a factory wall/chimney.
outstanding personal service and facilities
the exciting decor, the good service and the fairly close location to Porto, as well the view over river Dourro no
The hotel is great, and the people very nice. A great Archictetural solution. the rooms are not in the palace, but at the side of it, in another building also restored. It was not a problem for me, but if you want to go to the most turist location spots in oport you have to go by taxi.
Fantastic venue with superb views over the Douro river. The access to the hotel is extremely bad indicated!
The hotel is just exceptional!. They need to improve dramaticallly the restaurant, but besides that the hotel is an experience that anybody can forget. The restaurant and the food. The do not have room service.
It is just near Douro river and closer enough from the historic center. The hotel is very good.
