Travelers' Choice 2019 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
Located in the heart of the Ribeira, a World Heritage Site, with a window on the Douro River, in a historic building dating back to the seventeenth century, is the Porto River! Has 16 rooms, which bring together history and comfort in a fusion of authenticity and modernity. Acess by car is limited, please contact the reception for further details. We don’t have our own car park, our suggestion is to arrive “Cais da Ribeira ( Ribeira Quay)” between 06.30AM and 11AM so you can park very close to the hotel and store your luggage with us, also we can give you the instructions for the car park.

Good communication from hotel as to where to park, how to find the place, as it is a bit hidden. Reception is inviting space, friendly welcome, good explanation of the hotel and room facilities. Our room was a river view studio. The room is a nice mix of modern comforts, including a quiet airconditioning, with parts of the old building still visible to create a nice atmosphere. 3 windows which can be opened wide, with great view on the river as advertised. When the windows are closed it is quiet: we were there when the English won from Switzerland, but with the windows closed the partying outside could not be heard inside. Big double bed, couch, small dining table, kitchenette all in there without getting crowded. The bathroom was relatively small. Small sink (toiletries need to go on stool below sink) No bath or bidet, toilet right behind the door (lock door when using, or partner will hit you coming in), large shower with good temperature control and plenty of hot water, nice. We enjoyed our welcome drink in the bar: nice view from 1st floor terrace over the hustling and bustling down below. So if you go to Porto, want to treat yourself to luxury, close to the historic river area, the definitely consider this place. And then definitely pay the bit extra for the river view, otherwise you're missing out on an essential part of this nice place.

The aparthotel is perfect but the staff is even better. We so enjoyed views of the river. It feels like you are almost close enough to touch the bridge. Just looking out the window was amazing here! The breakfast buffet (included with your stay) was perfect. The chef will even make you omelettes and pancakes! The restaurant also serves light fare for lunch and dinner, which we appreciated after eating out so often. We were there for Easter and they went all out...bunny chocolates, special cookies, etc. This place will be a great memory always, it was probably the highlight of our trip!

Would highly recommend staying at the Porto River hotel. The rooms are clean and spacious and have everything you would need for a short break. Breakfast has a good selection, everything was fresh and they make eggs, bacon and pancakes to order as well as toast (so there's no hanging around queuing for the toaster!) It's located right on the river front so it's easy to access everything and the views are great, it's uphill to the main sightseeing spots but there is a funicular not too far away that will take you up the hill.

We stayed here for 3 nights. Loved the apartment and the location. Great view of the river and lots of activity on the riverfront. We have teenagers and the common room was perfect to hang out together. I would highly recommend this place, the staff was friendly and helpful and the breakfast was fantastic.
