My comments on other reviews are; Yes the bellhop is there but smiled and retreated when we said we would manage. Our complimentary drinks were most welcome as we had carried our bags from the train station on quite a hot day. I though the breakfast choice was very good and the orange juice fresh. But our lighting was certainly... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and it is a great location on the Douro river,with views of the port wine lodges. We were concerned about noise from the river but our river view room was quiet and very comfortable. That is until Monday morning when the drilling and banging started right adjacent to our room where the hotel is... More

The hotel is advertised as a four star hotel and there were some nice flourishes consistent with this rating. Sadly, the hotel was let down by the basics and, on the basis of our stay, we couldn’t recommend it. We were greeted at reception by one of the staff offering us a welcome drink. Nice, but it would have been... More

It is located in the most crowded place in Porto but once you are inside it is perfectly quiet and calm. We enjoyed four nights there and we have nothing to complain. Breakfast is rather small in choice but a great quality, all people there very friendly and extremely polite. We especially appreciate they do not always ask "how are... More

We had two nights in this lovely property before catching a riverboat cruise up the Douro River. Nothing could have been done better. We spent the extra money on a river view room. I highly recommend that. The room was large and the view across the river toward Vila Nova de Gaia and all the port wine warehouses was beautiful.... More

Great location. Good service and breakfast. A room with Riverview is a must. Try to get one on the corner. With balcony. The rooms in the middle are a bit small. Rooms are sound proof. Quiet a necessity since the Praca is lively.

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights in August 2014. The hotel is right along the water front and in the heart of all the action. The room was lovely and clean. The beds were very comfortable and the pillows were amazing - I need to find our where to get them! The hotel had a great breakfast buffet... More

A great location to watch the world go by- busy al the time! Port tasting just over the bridge. Cafés along the water Thursday/Friday had markets out the front along the waterside. Bit of a walk up to the town "centre" but when ever we were walking around it was fairly dead. Lots of closed shops (I believe some nightlife-... More

Located right on the river directly across from the Port Houses. The hotel is well maintained with spacious, clean rooms. Upon arrival a small bottle of port and tarts await you in your room. Restaurants are close with many to choose from. It is easy to walk to any of the points of interest in Porto from the hotel. Luckily... More

Reservations were easily made through a phone call directly where we got the best rates and room information. The hotel is located almost on the river at the bottom of the historical Unesco heritage site neighborhood. This location is the best in Porto. Get a river view room with a small balcony as the back rooms face other small buildings... More
