While it may not have the "real" castle credibility, it definitely has real castle feel. We stayed in the Royal Suite, and it was terrific. Sometimes we didn't want to leave the room. It was just a pleasant place to be. You can get more authentic (actually built for kings) castle-hotel experiences other places, but those places are often state... More

Great location allowing fast convenient public transport to the city centre and access to the airport. Nice and quiet accommodation with good breakfast! All in a castle. I would stay there again but don't pack too heavy as there are a lot of stairs.

Nicely located this accommodation place is suitable for all those that wish to have a nice experience in Porto. Well located on Rua Santa Catarina, the hotel is a combination of old times and a touch of nowadays. After you park your car in the lower part of the entrance you go up the stairs that lead you through a... More

If you don't want a cookie cutter hotel then this is for you. Like staying in an old palace, or castle as the case may be. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. It is conveniently located to the metro and a walk down Santa Catarina to the center of town.

This is a unique hotel, not a standard large luxury hotel. I would say it's better suited for those who are just on a short visit trip and not traveling around Europe with a giant suitcase and lots of luggage. There is no elevator and some of the stairs are narrow. I suppose if you had a room in the... More

Although we had a hard time finding this hotel (mostly the fault of our GPS). But once we got there, we charmed by this lovely catelo. An oasis in the middle of a bustling Porto. There was some construction, but because we got up early (8am) it did not bother us.

We arrive to this hotel, and were surprised by the beauty of it! the magnificent garden, the spacious room and the common building and dining room - directly taken from a museum. We enjoyed out two night there, the service attentive, exxelent breakfast and convenient location - a pleasant walk to the downtown area. we highly recommend it !

We was here only one night but it was so comfortable place to stay. We booked a Royal Suite and it was truly one of the most incredible experiences we have had at Porto. What amazing and romantic place! Wifi was good, wonderful garden, polite staff, good location (close to metro station and shopping spots). Also was nice to have... More

We stayed 3 nights in the castle tower in a corner room. Yes, the room is small but it worked fine for 3 nights. The bathroom is a reasonable size and ours had a bath/shower. Our room was just one floor down from the top (which is the grand suite). We found out that the top only cost 5 euro... More

We spent 5 nights in this hotel in late August and couldn’t have been happier. It helped that we had the royal suite at the very top of the hotel which was surprisingly affordable. It might not have been particularly stylish but it oozed character and offered panoramic views to all sides of the city. If you cannot get the... More
