With high expectations, this hotel (which is H1 on El Corte Ingles' City Map of Porto) was really beautiful, the classic architecture and furnishings of the public rooms and bedrooms were lovely. We checked in to a pleasant room at 2pm and went out; returning at 9.30, the room smelled strongly of cigarette smoke. It took 20 minutes for a porter to come and a further 30 before the manager turned up - both didn't argue, and we were assisted to move to the only room available, a beautiful suite. The smokiness was clearly something that they had experienced before, as the porter said "coming up from the bar directly below".
Porto has a vibrant nightlife, and the bars and disco opposite were active beyond 2am on the Friday and Saturday nights!
The hotel charges for access to WiFi which is very surprising nowadays.
For the high prices charged, the experience should have been better!
