Teatro Hotel is smack in the center of historical and downtown Porto. My wife and I stayed here for two nights on our honeymoon through Portugal and Spain, picking this place over the Intercontinental largely because of the price.
It's theater theme is presence everywhere you go, the rooms are small (from an American's point of view), the shower is a bit weirdly designed (doesn't be surprised if there is water kind of everywhere, reason for the lack of a perfect rating). But if all you want is a confortable bed to crash on after running all over Porto, this place is a great deal. It's located around the corner from the market, a 10-12 min walk from the River Douro and 25-30 min from the port wine lodges up the hill accross the river.
There are also some great local restaurants and bars all over the area. Around the corner from the hotel is a terrific place called Restaurante A Regaleira that claims to be the originator of the Francesinha sandwich. If you don't know what this is, ask the hotel staff.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Hotel Teatro arose from the spot where the Baquet Theatre was inaugurated in 1859. A hundred and fifty-one years later, the unique, refined and bohemian environment of the Theatre has been revived here in a hotel. The Reception represents a box office, where each guest receives a ticket to access their room. The Restaurant and Bar have become the new Palco and Plateia, offering creations for a discerning palate. The inner courtyard is a versatile garden or a quiet and secluded haven from the tumult of the city. The 74 comfortable rooms and suites are colored in gold and bronze, and the gym on the top floor transforms the Hotel into a true arena for action and relaxation. ... more less
