This hotel is truly a gem. Each room is a large suite in a beautiful, restored palace, and everything, from most of the furniture to the paintings to the decor, consists of gorgeous antiques. There are not many rooms, so the service is very personalized. Maria and Ricardo did everything they could to make us feel welcome and comfortable. After walking around Porto or going on an excursion, coming back to this hotel was like entering our own private world, leaving the hustle and bustle of Porto behind. It is very unassuming on the outside, but once inside, it is incredible. The breakfasts were wonderful, too, as was the glass of port when we checked in.
