"Nice hotel on outskirts"
As Marriott rewards we were excited to use our Marriott points in Porto. While this hotel is not in town, it is next to a metro stop. We found however that for four of us a taxi was very affordable - about 8 euros one way. We splurged one day on the hotel buffet breakfast 11 euro) and it was well worth it. Big spread of delicious food. Mall next door contains a lovely large grocery store which let us stock up on waters and snacks. That being said, while hotel is quite nice, it isn't in the heart of town. Perfect location however for anyone attending soccer match!
"Good for business"
Stayed one night for business. The only thing I should comment is the short assortment for breakfast... used to big buffets maybe this is not the one I have found in other hotels of the same chain... Excellent service, great rooms and a close to the airport with good connection to downtown.
This is a nice looking hotel. Check-in was smoith though not anything memorable. The property is supposed to be non smoking but I could smell smoke here and there through the night. I did not bring it up to the staff because really there isn't much they could do. The layout of the room was odd. It's s long room with the desk in the middle and the tv is at the far end. Bathroom was nice with a great selection of toiletries. The hotel is not near the tourist attractions and you'll need to take a taxi.
"A weekend of Football and discovering Porto..."
I had this trip sorted on Booking.com until I discovered from another review (thanks chaps !) that I could get a better deal by joining the Marriott Rewards Scheme and also get free wifi and breakfast thrown in (if using Visa to pay). Although not in the most salubrious district it is practically next door to The Estadio Do Dragao , which proved invaluable travelling with a young child. The city is a quick 15 minute Metro trip away ( tip - get a 24hr ticket -great value) as is the Airport (25 mins). There is shopping centre and a huge Continente Supermarket next door - so stocking upon the usual minibar staples was easy. The hotel itself is geared toward business and coach group travel but we found the staff were helpful and kind. The room itself could have done with a refurb but was clean and practical and at around 60 euros a night for B&B I can't complain !! Breakfast is excellent . The quality of the pastries and breads is awesome , the cheeses and meats on offer are great but the cooked goods ( Scrambled eggs and bacon ) were a bit tired.. Room service is particularly good - Bacalau dishes were a delightful modern take on the traditional - also served with good grace and a smile. I look forward to my next stay - my son is practically sobbing about checking out !
"Great hotel in a handy location"
The AC Hotel at Estadio Drago Porto is modern, well designed and everything runs efficiently. It is 5 mins walk from the metro and right beside a high class shopping mall , which has a food court and cinemas . There is a supermarket in the basement of the shopping centre. Breakfast included fresh fruit , cereals and hot breakfast option and a range of pastries including the famous Pastel de Nata. Our room on 9th floor had great views over the town . Everything was scrupulously clean and well maintained. Our bathroom was always well stocked with fluffy white towels and a great power shower. The staff are very helpful and pleasant. We had a really great stay . Thank you.
