The hotel offers a splendid view on the Porto city over the Douro river. It offers great five star services, but when they organize events, the guests in the hotel become less relevant. Between 1 and 3 in the morning chairs and tables in the dining room were moved around after an event, but many rooms are just one floor... More

This is a gorgeous hotel. It is situated to take advantage of the spectacular views. From the moment you pull up to the entrance you are met with smiling, extremely professional and warm staff. You are a quick walk across the bridge to the historic areas and on the same side of the river as the Port houses. The hotel... More

With a perfect service and a fantastic wine celar, restaurants with gourmet menu, I can assure that is a hotel you will want to be again next time. A well designed swimming pool and a sp located in the hill makes you feel like floating over the city.

On arrival you are greeted with a friendly smile and impeccable service. The decor and ambience add to the surroundings and the Gastronomic restaurant although expensive is a must. Porto is a fantastic place to visit for a couple of days and the hotels location is perfect.

We stayed three nights at this magnificent hotel. All the rooms have spectacular views of the river. We specifically requested a room on a higher floor because of the added privacy, and the hotel graciously accommodated this request.

My wife and I went there for a week-end. The view of Porto is exceptional and every room has a perfect version of it; this is an advantage of being in Vila Nova de Gaia and not Porto itself: you have a picture perfect view of the city. Walking to Porto itself is easy but bring sensible shoes. The rooms... More
