This is a fascinating hotel to stay in. Our room was the Castle Royal Suite two floors up in the tower. It was beautifully furnished with antiques, had a modern bathroom and was so quiet. The bed was really comfortable too.. Breakfast was both hot and cold with a good selection to choose from. The owner and all his staff... More

Rooms in the Castelo are not your normal hotel rooms,these are interesting and stylish,the breakfast area is like being in a antique store with some fine statues, and the gardens and church are very interesting plus good off road parking.

Tiny old room. Big moist mouldy bathroom. Average breakfast that's overcrowded. Rubbish wifi, if it actually works. In the middle of nowhere... All the shops seem top have shut years ago. A good 10-15 mins to anything that looks like life. The pictures show what this could be.... What you get is nothing like it. Very disappointed.

The hotel is about 20 minutes pleasant walk into the centre of Porto. We stayed in one of the more modern (Garden Rooms). It was clean with all modern facilities which were of a high standard. The hotel has great outdoor space to sit and have a drink in the evening. The breakfast was good with a large selection. Free... More

This was our first visit to Portugal and our first two nights. We were absolutely wowed by this place, it was quirky, had beautiful gardens and the breakfast room was spectacular! I would definitely stay here again. It was very reasonably priced for what was on offer, extremely clean room and public areas. The breakfast was tasty and had a... More

I want to make it clear that I am writing this review based on a visit to the hotel. I was not an overnight guest. I was walking back to the center of Porto from Marques and I was literally stopped in my tracks as I passed this castle-like structure. Curious, I walked in, down a small driveway and up... More

I stayed here early this month. The staff was really nice and friendly. But, the room that I was given had a weird smell, and it didn't have wifi. Set that aside, breakfast was really great. It was ok for a night stay. Not sure if I would stay here again.

This was one of the highlights of our trip in terms of lodging. The websites don't do it justice. The hotel is on a quiet street away from the city center of Porto. The historic center is within walking distance (1000 meters) of the hotel, but be aware it is all downhill going and all uphill coming back and the... More
