What a lovely hotel. And the service! Great! From the moment we checked in to the moment we left we had consistently good service. Special mention must be made of the concierge and his assistants. They helped us with suggestions for restaurants for dinner, an awesome wine shop, directions to various places of interest etc. The bar area is particularly... More

I picked this hotel because of the great location and proximity of many sites. I was pleasantly surprised at how beautiful the hotel was. The suite we booked was great, with a view directly onto the main square. The one thing I didn't think about was the noise level of the traffic. I would highly recommend this hotel, however if...

Absolutely fabulous place, well located. The staff couldn't have been more helpful with absolutely anything. It is clean, bright and airy and a very good 5 star hotel. The rooms are a good size with tea and coffee making facilities and the bathrooms outstanding. We will most definitely stay here again when vising Porto

Rated the best hotel in Porto. Right In the center of the city. No more than 10 minute walk to the highlights in the city. Used to be an old monastery, rooms and lobby are gorgeous. Service was excellent and everyone was super friendly. If you have the money, you must stay here.

Gosh, how I loved this hotel - there for one night only - arriving in a camper van didn't faze them at all, although I think they thought we were at the wrong hotel... Once that was cleared up, the concierge was patient and friendly and the room was just incredible - huge fluffy robes, an enormous bed and a... More

My wife and I spent 3 days at this exceptional hotel. Perfect location, but more importantly, the staff/service is extremely helpful; they assisted me with restaurant and train reservations. The rooms are luxurious, the lobby and common areas are equally nice.

I had the good fortune to stay in this truly 5 star hotel last week. The room was spacious and stylishly furnished and the bathroom was large and fully functional. Although the room was overlooking one of the main squares, it was very quiet and peaceful Breakfast was superb but a little expensive at E22 per person. Reception was a... More

I stayed here for a few days whilst on business. Can't fault the hotel in any way at all. The rooms are really nicely furnished and very clean, the bar is great with helpful attentive staff and the meeting facilities are very good. The hotel is in a very good location which was ideal for seeing some of Porto and... More
