This was my first visit to Portugal so I don't have much to compare it to. Most reviews say it well, the hotel is well located in the shopping strip and easy walk to the river. The ground floor areas are grand. The rooms are very small, even for European standards. We don't spend much time in the room as... More

The dining room is wonderful and the buffet breakfast was good. the Windsor bar is reasonable priced and we stopped here for a drink each evening The staff and service throughout our stay,both were excellent....

We spent four nights in this hotel and cannot rate it highly enough. We got such a good deal on yeego.com that I was slightly suspicious, too good to be true I thought. However, this hotel truly exceeded our expectations. We were in an economy room which, to be honest, was basic enough. However, considering that this was THE cheapest... More

I am another BA customer who arrived at the hotel to be told our booking was cancelled 'By the Agency'. This was their first lie, it was the hotel that cancelled the booking ( even though we had paid in full ), and wanted more money from us for our rooms ( they also wanted 40 euros per night more...

It was like stepping back in time walking through the public areas from the hotel reception past the reading room and Windsor bar to the beautifully decorated restaurant. Original photographs adorn the walls as well as interesting historical features. GOod buffet breakfast. All the staff we had contac with were welcoming and friendly. The bedrooms on the second floor were... More

Fabulous location right in the centre of Porto - within walking distance of all the main shops and tourist attractions. The hotel is charming, but in need of an upgrade, particularly once you get to the bedrooms. The main dining hall and the small bars downstairs are well maintained, but the bedrooms are very unattractive - dark brown in colour... More

historical hotel where you enjoy spending most if the time in lobby which is really beautiful. you get the feeling that you are at a cigar club (without the smoking part) as you sit in leather couches, read free papers, smell fresh flowers and enjoy the atmosphere in the big hall. rooms instead are old and not so fancy and...

I booked this hotel through British Airways. At check in I was informed by the manager that payment had not been received, and that it was my responsibility to negotiate the matter with the third party booking agency used by BA. He also stated that – pending the completion of those negotiations - I would be required by the hotel... More

Best location - a few minutes walk from the metro which is on a direct line to the airport and in the main shopping area. Charming decadent hotel with loads of character. The breakfast was plentiful with lots of choice. The room was comfortable and modern.
