This is a charming hotel, located in the heart of Porto's shopping district. Our suite was spacious, and the staff was very sweet, but not very efficient. At check-in, we were sent to the wrong room (one already occupied by someone else). Our correct room was not set up with extra beds for our children. Housekeeping arrived after 2:00 (and... More

We stayed here for 5 nights. The location is excellent for sightseeing public transport and shopping. The level of service is the best I have experienced on the continent. the restaurant has top class service and an amazing menu at extremely low prices for the quality. The Windsor Bar has excellent staff and service. There is a fitness room and... More

Good old stylish hotel in the heart of Porto's old town. A bit problematic when you come by car. No car access to the hotel street but just ask hotel staff for address of the parking they recommend and give you a voucher for discount. it's 6EUR per night with hotel discount and it's like a 500-600 meters/yards far from...

We stayed at this lovely hotel in July as part of my 50th birthday treat. The hotel has a lot of history and is beautiful. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and the bathroom had both shower & bath. It also had air conditioning and a safe. The room was made up daily and fresh towels provided. Breakfast was lovely...

Very nice hotel. Everything was perfect. Old fashioned. Excellent breakfast. Located on the shopping street Santa Catarina with many shops, cafes, shopping center Via Catarina is nearby. Metro Station Bolhao is few meters away on Santa Catarina Street. Walking distance from Duoro River. Friendly staff.

I read a review saying that this was like visiting th Budapest Hotel from the movie. It does have that absolutely fantastic and quirky feel about it. Nothing about this place is canned or cookie cutter. It feels like an old, over-the-top hotel from Eastern Europe. Velvet seats and cusions. Dark-wooded alcoves. Impeccable service. We stayed here for a weekend... More

We stayed here for three nights and enjoyed the hotel, it's location, and staff. The bedrooms were sufficient, breakfasts were great. As the hotel is in the city centre, you need some navigation aid to find it by car.

Lovely little hotel in the heart of the town, great for exploring the tourist sites. Historic building with modern rooms; a bit on the small side but more than adequate. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great breakfast.

This is the perfect place to stay in Porto. It's location is brilliant, on via Catarina, a busy shopping street and beside the famous Café Majestic. 5 mins walk to the Beautiful Bento train station and praca liberdale where you can get any of the bus tours. A lovely walk takes you to the ribera, 10+ mins from hotel. Back... More

Everything about this hotel was fantastic except for the room. In the case of the room, the only bad thing is that there was only one 2'x3' window about 5' off the floor looking at the side of another building. Also, the in-room wi-fi was spotty at best. Outside of that though, everything was great. The breakfast was fantastic, service... More
