Just returned from Porto from an enjoyable trip to this very interesting and atmospheric city. Being usually lucky weather wise I suppose we were bound to get some inclement weather at some point and had rain every day during our long weekend, but then its not 'green' Portugal for nothing. Any issue with the weather was offset by Porto and the superb Palacio do Freixo. Staff were extremely friendly and absolutely nothing was too much trouble for them. Breakfast was good and plentiful and rooms and facilities were of a high standard. As we enjoy walking we did not mind the 45 minutes relatively brisk walk to get from the hotel to the main bit of Town and it was all along the river Duoro so no complaints. Taxis and buses are easily available anyway.
Definately will stay here again next visit to Porto.
