This is a beautiful hotel set in wonderful surrounding on the edge of the Douro river. This is our second visit for the year this time in winter. The staff in this hotel are top class , nothing is too much trouble and always with a genuine smile, they make you feel like family. The comfort is off the scale,... More

The final approach (as if airborne) was cumbersome. Located below the Freixo bridge in the Campanha district of the town the Porto Pousada lacks the serene charm and the wholesome character of her sisters. The area does not offer much for a stroll and you are 35' walking away from the historical centre- short ride by taxi though with a... More

My wife and I just returned from a 3 week trip to Portugal and Madrid to celebrate her BIG Birthday. Our stay at the Pousada do Porto was one of the great parts of our vacation. The room overlooked the Douro River and also the ramparts of this palace. Everything about it was perfect: the staff was cordial, helpful, energetic---and... More

The Pousada do Porto - Freixo was a villa built for a bishop in the 1700s and houses the restaurant, bar, pool/spa and historic rooms decorated in the style of the day. The connected building, which is... More

Our room was large and was beautifully decorated. The windows faced the Douro River which was nice (but the view from the hotel is not spectacular as it is at the Yetman Hotel that is located in Vila Nova de Gaia). Breakfast is a treat! Wifi works very well; it is free and does not require a password. The hotel... More

While the main area of the hotel might have been once a palace, I was surprised that the bedrooms were in a converted dockside building. The decorations in the palace were true to its description but the room that we had, a superior room on the fifth floor at that, has used furniture that was modern and could have been... More

The hotel itself is lovely: the rooms are modern, large and comfortable in a former factory building, the reception area and public rooms are in a beautiful chateau 20 metres away - it really is worth exploring this as the decoration and furniture are stunning. The view over the river is also great, unfortunately the weather did not encourage us... More

We were four friends who went to celebrate a big birthday. We had one of the junior suites in which we could easily stay the four of us. The room was comfortable, and well equipped, with the curtesy bottle of port and a fruit platter. The interest in this hotel is the absolutely gorgeous common areas: first the spa which... More

This is a first-class hotel in Porto located on the banks of the Douro River. Open your curtains and set your eyes on its shimmering, relaxing water. The comfortable, modern rooms are located in a building adjacent to the architecturally elegant main building where the bar and dining facilities are. The property has a beautiful outdoor pool, as well an... More
