My boyfriend and I visited Porto for one week in June. Hotel B&B Porto was the perfect hotel from which to explore the city, as well as explore the surrounding Douro Valley. The hotel is very modern and stylish. Because this hotel used to be an old theatre, the hotel is decorated with black and white images of old actors and actresses. The hallways to the hotel rooms are dark, the floors are lined with lighting- much like in a movie theatre. The bedrooms are very clean. We were delighted to return to our room each evening and see that it had been immaculately cleaned once again. The rooms were also very quiet, and the shower was incredible (you should see the size of the shower head!). As for the location, it is situated near the shopping area at Rua Santa Catarina. From here you can easily reach the water front in 10 minutes (by foot). There is a grocery store within 5 minutes walk, and several nice pastry shops are just a few steps away.The only downsides of this hotel are: (1) it is situated atop a very long, steep street, so I can imagine this might be a problem for older tourists without a car; (2) the hotel breakfast (which is optional) was disappointing and not worth the 6 Euro per day. After we tried the breakfast once, we decided to eat our daily breakfast elsewhere. All in all, we would definitely return to this hotel again if we are in Porto!
