Located on a walk street; our room 204 was plenty roomy. And quiet with the excellent windows and A/C. Good breakfast buffet. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The lobby area has a classic old charm feel; room upstairs are certainly adequate.

Great location on pedestrian popular shopping street. Many cafés and restaurants close walking distance. Grand lobby and breakfast room but rooms very worn, tired and small. Very tight for 2 adults. Clean hotel but carpeting is stained and amenities just aren't there. Ok for 1 or 2 night stay but the hotel I'm sure has seen better days.

This is a lovely hotel right in the middle of the shopping district (as far as I can tell). It's in the old style with a very grand lobby, lounge, bar and dining room which are equally warm and welcoming. The staff were attentive and helpful and, as I'm continually amazed throughout Europe, their English is perfect! The room I... More

Excellent location on one of the few traffic free (except for limited access) streets in the centre of town. An old style (Edward and Wallace Simpson were regulars here, hence the Windsor Bar) property, calm with an air of sophistication. Seemed to have been completely refurbished. Staff helpful and efficient. Rooms bright and partially modern. Good, fast free wi fi.... More

This is indeed a very grand hotel - not unlike the Grand Budapest Hotel (in its heyday). On entering through the revolving doors the reception area is very palatial with the neat little Windsor Bar situated just off to the side where you are surrounded with memorabilia of the Duke of Winsor and Wallace Simpson with a real tartan /...

We stayed at this hotel for a long weekend (thurs to sunday) in March. The hotel is charming and the reception rooms are beautiful and ornate. Our room was spacious and well appointed and although the beds are a little hard, it was a lovely stay. Staff were very friendly and helpful and were more than happy to store luggage... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the Grande Hotel do Porto for a short Spring break. The transfer from the airport (booked via Ryanair) was very efficient and dropped us in the main square. It is a 5 minute walk to the hotel and, thanks to a previous reviewer, we found it easily next to Pandora. Our room was very... More

The location of the hotel is simply great - it is in the center, in the shopping mile. On foot you can reach all important interesting places. The room was exstremly small and dark (1. floor) but if you need just place to sleep it is ok. The breakfast room was wonderfull - for me it is showing the importance... More
