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

very nice, clean room, and toiletries. great stuff, offers personal, knowledgeable local information, good breakfast as well. the location is a little bit off the lively commercial streets, takes a good 10 mins walk to get to where the crowds are.

The room we had was an executive room and it was large, very clean, superb huge bed and the view we had from our window was stunning. This hotel has so many quirky things going on...ornate gardens (3) with exotic plants a separate rooftop garden, where we could look out upon a quieter part of Porto, with statues and surprises...

Nice, clean, and beautiful. The staff was very sweet and helpful. On the down side all the windows in our room leaked when it rained and caused puddles in the room. I would recommend this hotel to others.

We had a reasonable stay at the Castelo but I wish we spent a few Euros more for something a bit more central. The location is well out of the way and there aren't many amenities close by. It's a good half hour walk to the action and there seems to be a problem of unsavoury night time workers plying... More
