We were travelling to the Algarve by car , stopping in Pousadas on the way. Initially,as we drove up we were concerned at the location, being nearly in the town, but we neednt have been. From the moment we arrived, when our bags were whisked away, and we were offered a glass of port, to when we left ,the service... More

One of the nicest hotels I have stayed in. We had a suite and it was very spacious and had a wonderful view. The main building is a true palace and we were treated like princesses! The staff was excellent, each one remember our names from the first meeting. The breakfast is excellent and even includes champagne. Easy to get... More

First calss hotel in all respects - spacious rooms, very helpful staff and located just out of the hustle of Porto in a very quiet location on the Douro river. The accommodation is in a separate building to the old italiante palace, linked by a covered walkway. It is 4 levels, so views are maximised on the upper levels -... More

All I can say is one of the top hotels we have ever stayed at . Staff,food ,location,service room size were all excellent. Maybe some flags at the entrance of the Drive or lead to the hotel would help when trying to find the hotel as it was a little hard to find but well worth it you do.

The staff, the historical building - the palace, along with the service and the amenities of this Pousada is truly a unique experience. We recommend anyone to plan a stay here if visiting Porto. Our teenage son was travelling with us and the room was prepared and easily accommodated all of us. The pool/sauna area were well maintained and esthetically... More

I find it hard to think of any ways this place could be improved. Great value, the staff are outstanding, but probably he best thing is just that you feel as if you are in a palace. Oh you are (see name). 25 euro cab fare from airport. 20-30 euros for the nicest bottle of wine you can imagine. A... More

Located right on the river, this facility is outstanding. The hotel is beautifully maintained and clean as a whistle. The rooms are large and very well appointed with views overlooking the Douro River. The breakfasts are absolutely first rate and the service is second to none. The staff go above and beyond to make you feel like royalty. The Freixo... More

This hotel offers an amazing blend of state-of-the-art business hotel and an architectural monument combining industrial architecture and historic chique of a castle right at the Porto River. Hotel staff was very friendly - make sure not to miss the welcome Porto - and Hotel Restaurant offered excellent food. Make sure to book a room in the upper floor, as... More

stayed here for 4 nights in early January. The place is split in to two parts. The old house with the reception bar and restaurant. With the bedrooms in the building next joined by a covered walk way. Can nott fault the food or the rooms. The staff were great and nothing was too much trouble.
