Only ate in the hotel once, we had the... More

We stayed for four nights in room 407, which has a massive terrace overlooking the river. The room itself was also very large and comfortable with a lovely bathroom. As other reviewers have said, all the public areas are lovely and the service is great. We ate in the hotel restaurant for my birthday which was a truly five star... More

I generally hate review that start with "I've stayed in a lot of hotels......" but I'm going to say that I have and, overall, the Casa da Calcada is by far the best of them. Of course it is not the best on every count (if you need a gym or integrated cinema, for example, it is not for you)... More

This was our third hotel in our trip to the Douro last September. Drawn by the promise of one star food rather than the splendor of the town we were not disappointed either. Everything ate was fantastic and I would say they are very close to a second star. A great wine list also is to be found here and... More

Magical location with wonderful views over the historic centre and the river. Very relaxing and easy place to spend time. Attentive staff and tasteful period interiors. Stunning food and great prices for a Michelin star restaurant.

We chose this hotel, through a Travelzoo offer, and what a wonderful find! The hotel demonstrated its five star quality in all aspects. The room (we upgraded to a river view); the food; the staff - everything had particular attention to detail, which made our short break perfect. All of the staff are excellent, although two who were especially wonderful,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The lemon yellow façades of the Casa da Calçada are a clue to the sunny stay that awaits you at this hotel. Situated at the heart of the town of Amarante, between the bustle of Porto and the sun‑dappled countryside of the Douro Valley (both less than 40 minutes away), this hotel with its golden interiors is a favourite with those who love beauty, golfers (there is a splendid 18-hole course nearby) and fans of great food and wines. The Largo do Paco Restaurant, awarded with the famous 1* Michelin Restaurant, is waiting for you to show you the high Portuguese gatronomy. The proposed visit to the region’s best wine “quintas” will ensure that you never forget the differences between Tawny, Ruby, White or Vintage Port. ... more   less
