First impressions of the hotel are not great, it's a slightly tired looking tower that dominates the otherwise historical architecture of Central Porto. The awning on the front of the hotel was very dirty too (thick with bird droppings).
Inside, however, the hotel is bright and clean. My room was on the 14th floor, the view was stunning. The rooms are very clean and nicely furnished and the water pressure in the bathroom was great.
The breakfast was ample, a self-service buffet offering a mixture of breads, pastries, eggs and bacon.
The bar on the top floor is perfect for evening drinks, it has the ambiance of a 1970s cruise ship (which I loved). There is an outside terrace which surely has the best view of the entire city.
A great base for a holiday in Porto, highly recommended.

- Hotel Dom Henrique-Downtown, located in the traditional centre of Porto, 300 metters from the Metro station TRINDADE with direct connection to the Airport and Campanhã train station, is the point of departure for the discovery of the city, its inhabitants and architecture. Steps away from Rua Santa Catarina, the main shopping zone of the city, the Hotel is at the proximity of the Theatres, several monuments including the ancient City area recognised by UNESCO as World Heritage, the Douro River Cruises boarding quay and 5 minutes away from the lively bars area of Rua da Galeria de Paris. The city view from the “17º RESTAURANT & BAR”, on the top floors, is unique and a must to all visitors of the Hotel.
