We had a room with a small balcony overlooking the garden. Great choice at breakfast, and we ate in the lovely breakfast room and also the small garden. Very helpful staff. Given its central location it was very quiet and calm. Convenient for both the metro and train station. Extremely reasonable in price.

Centrally located and very clean rooms. Breakfast was very good and you can sit in the garden. Beware that there is no air conditioning in the rooms, however it doesn't get too hot (I ended up opening the window to let cool air in but had to shut it at night because the street was pretty loud).

Charming boutique hotel in the heart of the city. Well presented rooms and fantastic breakfast offering. Staff friendly and helpful. A similar hotel in the UK would cost a small fortune. I highly recommend this hotel.

I loved this hotel - old, unpretentious, interesting with lovely public spaces and an excellent breakfast which you can take in the garden. It is in a great location, and the only drawback is that the rooms on the front are noisy. We were lucky enough to be at the back where it is dead quiet but no view at... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. A delightful hotel with lovely staff, reasonable size rooms and an good selection breakfast. Right in the heart of the city, so easy to get anywhere, for tour buses, trams, buses and lots of the sights. To be recommended

The location of the hotel is very good: in city center, but not on the main street (so not that noisy), close to public transport (metro). It is the oldest hotel in Porto and has this retro-different style, interesting decorations. The rooms are simple, but clean. The room door was not closing well (you could still see the corridor lights... More

This is a great hotel in an excellant location close to what is effectively the main square. We took the metro from the airport to Trindade station then walked to the hotel which took about 10 minutes. Located close to Sao Bento station for train ride up Douro and to other cities nearby. We could see the Torre of the... More

I stayed here in January its the oldest hotel in Porto,and has that charm. There is some updating required in the rooms but overall in is a great base to explore from as everything is right on your doorstep. The price was more than reasonable and the continental breakfast didn't have the wow factor but did the job in setting... More

This hotel oozes old fashioned style in that most of the rooms and furnishings date back before chain hotels existed. We loved the quirkiness of the place, my wife couldn't find her way back to the room via all the corridors and stair cases. However it is very open and light in the public areas and round every corner you... More

A charming grand style hotel with a unique history. Sensitively, carefully preserved in its original form while managing to be v clean, functional and comfortable. Its great location and friendly, polite team of staff giving superb service added to a terrific value for money. Antique furniture and interesting artefacts complimented smaller touches such as embossed bed linen. A varied and... More
