“interesting atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2013

The location is very good, just central in a walking distance from most of the touristic locations. All downtown is very well connected with the metro, this hotel too.
The hotel is "stylish", very dark (intentionally) with quite audacious choices such as, for example, the transparent wall/door both for the toilet and shower.
Wifi is ok.
Breakfast is apparently average as quantity and variety but I found the choice quite interesting and unconventional.
Personnel is professional and kind.

We just spent 2 nights at the Teatro. The location is perfect for walking the whole city. The staff were very helpful and gave us great recommendations for the local restaurants. Carlos at the bar was also great and made excellent wine suggestions to us for our afternoon wine drinking at the bar. The rooms are good and the beds are very comfortable. The bathrooms are the only complaint I may have, small as it is. They are small and poorly lit and the bathtub/shower is hard to use. I would also strongly recommend you ask for a room not on the Main Street as it is very noisy, especially when the theatre next store is having a party. Other than that, I would recommend this hotel for a great place to stay in central Porto!

We chose this Hotel for it's central position close to the shopping area of town. Easy to get to from the airport via the Metro, about a 7 minute walk. Loved the entrance door, sort of like you were entering a secret grotto. Staff very helpful. As others have said, there is a theatre theme throughout and it is well designed, the lighting is as if you are half way through the first act of a play. Very good breakfast although after day 1 of eating in Porto I was only able to fit in fruit! Booked well in advance at £73 a night so very good value I thought.

Excellent location in the historic center, walking distance to the main attractions. Very good and attentive service at the front desk. Stylish, a bit quirky. Sleeping area in the bedroom could be larger and the pillows weren't very comfortable. Cleaning was faulty in the first morning. Very good breakfast, with sparkling wine! Good rate.

Staff were lovely, very helpful when checking in. The room was luxurious and tastefully decorated with a beautiful copper-painted bath. The bed was very comfy, you could easily get lost in the mountain of pilliows supplied. Breakfast finished quite early (10am), and predictably everyone choose to have breakfast between 9.30-10 which meant on one morning we couldn't even get a table in the restaurant and had to take breakfast in the bar. No problem in doing this - it was a lot quieter with more room, just not what we expected for the cost of the hotel.

Been here last year with my partner but eight of us went last weekend for a long weekend. One of the group was celebrating a birthday and with her husband their wedding anniversary. We were able to order a cake in advance and staff were happy for us to decorate part of the bar area as a surprise for our friends.
Hotel is a little dark but that's because of the theatre theme. Good clean hotel with nice breakfast. Fridge in room was useful. Super value. Central for tourists. Very good friendly staff. Our celebrating friends were given a complimentary bottle of champagne and cake even though this was not requested. As returning guests so were we which I thought was a nice touch.
We had separate bathroom and although the door was glass it was coloured therefore you could not see through.

Room Tip: Ask for room at the back or side of the hotel not at the front.

The Teatro Hotel is in a great location to explore the heart of Porto. It is within walking distance to the river and all amenities. There are several good cafe's and restaurant's only a few minutes walk from the hotel. The room was spacious and well appointed. The best attribute of this hotel is it's staff. We were made to feel at home from the time we arrived until the time we checked out. Every staff member we had any interaction with were very friendly yet professional. I will definitely stay at the Teatro on my next visit to Porto.

The Hotel Teatro arose from the spot where the Baquet Theatre was inaugurated in 1859. A hundred and fifty-one years later, the unique, refined and bohemian environment of the Theatre has been revived here in a hotel. The Reception represents a box office, where each guest receives a ticket to access their room. The Restaurant and Bar have become the new Palco and Plateia, offering creations for a discerning palate. The inner courtyard is a versatile garden or a quiet and secluded haven from the tumult of the city. The 74 comfortable rooms and suites are colored in gold and bronze, and the gym on the top floor transforms the Hotel into a true arena for action and relaxation. ... more   less
