The family owned and operated hotel is immaculately clean and comfortable beds add to a great place to stay. We enjoy visiting small towns and viewing the port wine quintas and basing our stay in Pinhão is very handy with easy access by train up and down the port wine region. Luis and Pedro can arrange visits to quintas and... More

This family hotel is hands down the best, Peter and his brother are superb inn keepers of this 3rd generation hotel. Great central location, on main street, steps from the Pinhao rail station. Very few trains, quiet. Take their recommendation for dinner too.

Though rooms are small, they were clean, convenient, and well situated. Fantastic view of the river and overlooking the train station. Owner staff were helpful and full of information. Easy access to surrounding PORT producing vineyards. We would recommend this hotel to serious travellers who like value for their money. Rick Steve made an excellent suggestion with this place.

Staying at the Douro Hotel was a pleasure. Our hosts had time to answer all our annoying questions and recommended great walks and restaurants in the area. Friendly, helpful and a great location. Go see for yourself.

The Hotel Douro is a delightful place to stay. Owner Luiz could not be more helpful and friendly, and his mother Fernanda makes THE BEST JAMS to enjoy with your breakfasts. Rooms are very comfortable and nicely decorated, there is a small private terrace to enjoy a port overlooking the river and the breakfasts are really good! Excellent value for... More

Hotel Douro is a perfect location for enjoying the Duuro Valley with easy access to restaurants and transportation. The best reason to stay here, though, is the very friendly and helpful staff. Amazing!

We stayed at Hotel Douro in the heart of the Douro Valley to not only experience the Valley but get to know some Portugese culture. This place is a family run business that made our stay full of Portugese hospitality so that we always felt at home. They provided lots of good advice on how to explore the area when... More

This was our second visit to Pinhao, Hotel Douro. A great place with fantastic views, friendly staff and a filling breakfast. A brilliant place to stay and explore the valley and all it has to offer. Great value for money, we will be back again.

Pinhao is not de most charming place in Portugal, but still the perfect hub for some Douro-tripping. The Hotel Douro has a perfect location, next to the railway station and close to the water side. The hotel is ok. It has a nice terras, clean rooms (backside no view, frontside noisy however) and friendly staff. The breakfast was basic but... More
