a quirky and charming 'folly' with great gardens. Only problem is the fornt stairs are difficult to navigate with heavy bags. We had help inside to carry the bags to the third floor, but not to get into the garden in the first place. Staff were helpful and breakfast was wonderful.

Definitely not for the mobility impaired but such a little jewel. If you love antiques and to be spoiled by the attentive young men at the desk and a great included breakfast this is the place to be. This was a last minute reservation for us in Porto, our first room was very nice and the all marble bathroom was... More

What an amazing place to stay! This hotel has quite a history, and some of the rooms in the main house are decorated with some amazing furniture, some of which was acquired as the established families left Portugal after the revolution in 1974-5. The ornate decor makes you feel like you are staying in a small palazzo, and the balconies... More

We (couple with an Infant) stayed in the "Grand Suite" which is the room at the top of the tower, with a wonderful view all around 360 degrees. Having... More

It is wonderful hotel in every respect. It is in the most uninteresting part of Santa Catharina Street and we even 2 times passed by down the street and passed entrance to hotel. But then we began to look around at a tower of hotel and could find it. But when you come around inside, such feeling that got to... More

My mother and I stayed here 2 nights. The hotel can be a bit difficult to find as it's a bit hidden from the street and the GPS didn't recognize the address. Once found, it's a beautiful place. The reception was very friendly and the staff are happy to help with bags up the stairs (there are no lifts). As... More
