"Fabulous hotel, brilliant for football stadium"
My son and I travelled to Porto to watch the Portuguese game between Porto and Setubal - and couldn't believe our luck when we found this hotel so close to the stadium. We also could not get over how good a standard it was for just £60 per night including breakfast.
We arrived at 10.30am Sunday and wanted to leave our bags at reception. No way, instead would you like to have your room, now? You don't often hear that. The room was superbly fitted and there was a free mini bar with soft drinks, water and a couple of bottles of beer. Most welcome. From our window you could look into the stadium and see one half of the pitch...so close was the ground. The hotel had a bar and served food, unfortunately we didn't have time for breakfast. Next to the hotel is a huge shopping centre which had lots of restaurants, all of which opened til midnight.
The other advantage is that when you leave the airport you get on the 'Metro' and go all 20 stops to the estadio drago.... and the hotel and ground are literally hundreds of yards away. The Metro was also perfect for links to the tourist areas, a couple of stops and a quick change and you are down on the waterfront or in the main city area. Needless to say we loved Porto, the football and the trip was perfect. If anyone wants Football info please email me and I will help.
I will be happy to answer any questions or elaborate on matters I have touched on...enjoy your holiday, we did.
