This hotel has the best views in Porto, as long as you ask for a river facing room. It is an ideal base for exploring the city and visiting the port lodges over the river, all of which can be done on foot. We didn't bother with a rental car, got a taxi from the airport (25/30 Euros, about 20... More

This smaller, boutique hotel has by far the best location in Porto. It is right on the river near the bridge with the Ribeira area right out the front door. The Ribeira is the area along the river with many outdoor restaurants and bars. It is a very short walk to the bridge, the tram and the city center (however... More

Went there with my girlfriend for 2 nights. We had a river view room which was clean/spacious, awesome breakfast included, perfect location looking over the river at the port houses, wouldn't want anything more! Only downside was we got 2 single beds pushed instead of a double be, but thats if I'm being REALLY picky!

We stayed there for 3 nights. The room was magnificent with a view to river Duro. The seagulls were a great company, and the room spacious and clean. Great wifi connection, too. The staff were rather friendly, all spoke English and the Beatles photo album at the reception gave the place a nice touch. We enjoyed breakfast on the 1st... More

I loved my stay in porto. The nightlife, the restaurants and most of all the people were incredible. This hotel was right in the UNESCO protected site of Ribiera and although a bit creepy at night it is full of historic atmosphere and beautiful old detail like tiling and old architectural elements and design. Very kind hotel staff that helped... More

Spent two nights at this hotel in a Deluxe room which gave us a view of the river and the Port houses across the other side (this was especially striking at night).
