“Great Location & Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014 via mobile

We were careful about location in Porto - wanted to be near the sights and avoid to much hill walking. The Da Bolsa was perfect in this respect and also great value. The room and service were fine and we didn't experience much street noise (as others have complained). Our one & only criticism would be that the very comfortable & functional bar simply wasn't utilised enough - rarely staffed during the day when it would have been an ideal meeting place, even just for coffee. Great stay.

This hotel is in a great location. It is an easy walk to the river and the downtown area. Great breakfast with fresh orange juice and many choices of breakfast items. Our room was the size of a small apartment and had a nice-sized bathroom. Location was quiet and the staff was very helpful and pleasant. We would definitely stay here again.

The hotel offers a great location, quite close to the Ribeira, easy parking lot access ( extra but low cost ), nice and clean rooms, a very good breakfast for a small fee... what else could I wish? A very nice service and reasonable prices for an expensive area. Perfect match! I will definately be back!

Room Tip: Ask for higher floors. Porto is a city full of young people drinking til late. They may make some no...

Hotel nicely placed in The city of Porto. We were on the 4th floor and that secured us a great view of the Porto rooftops and a portion of the river. At the time we went apparently all construction had been finished which was a plus. Just walk down to the Ribiera and wander about of jump on the Yellow or red buses or even take a short cruise on the local boats. plenty of great restaurants nearby. The only thing you have to remember is that if you're walking down then you'll have to walk back up to the hotel which didn't bother me but it's something to keep in mind when staying here. Staff was great, very gracious and accommodating. Breakfast was average, but I don't stay at hotels for their breakfasts. It got me going in order to scour for more delightful meals.

Room Tip: as with hotels, the higher you go the better the view but if you get a room in the back of the hotel...

Based on the advices, I chose this hotel for a weekend in Porto.
I was highly disappointed! I had requested a room with a view over the rooftops of Porto, or the Douro, as a user had suggested. We had a room on the second floor, with vue on the street - right in the work, so very noisy!
The room was very small, the bathroom also, in the bathroom, no space
storage provided. Fortunately everything is clean. This is the only positive!
The breakfasts are also very disappointing. It was very hot in the breakfast room. The air conditioning did not work. The bread is not very good, there is not much support. Coffee, do not talk!
