!! Bring earplugs!! Such a shame, that the investors of this place haven't put more money in isolation. We had a room next to a small street. The entire night people were shouting, driving rodeos and so on. Really a shame otherwise this property would have gotten 5 points from me, because the rest was great! Staff was super nice and helpful. Breakfast was also very good.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that doesnt face the street.... otherwise don't go...

This hotel wasn't ranked as highly as other hotels in Porto so wasn't sure what it would be like, but the price and location suited what we needed so I booked it. I was delighted with our choice, it couldn't have been nicer. The hotel is very new and has high quality interiors throughout. Our room was small but perfect, it had everything we needed beautifully presented. We had a fantastic view over the river, would highly recommend upgrading for a view. Breakfast was very good too.

Stayed only 1 night but wished it could have been more. It is a newly opened hotel in a converted port storage warehouse but many of the original features have been retained. It has been beautifully converted into a fantastic hotel. The location is great, 2 minutes walk to the river with bars and restaurants and close enough to walk across the bridge to Vila Nova do Gaia side of the Douro. The staff were all friendly, efficient and helpful.
The price we paid for a decent sized double room was around €100 which I thought was a good price for the standard and location and much cheaper than similar hotels on offer in Porto.
We would certainly stay again on our next visit to beautiful Porto. I would have no hesitation in recomending this hotel.

My room in this brand new hotel had a magnificent terrace with 180 degree views of the bridges, the river, and the Port wine cellars. It was particularly beautiful at night. Truly a highlight of my six week journey around the Iberian penninsula. The bed was wonderful, the double paned doors isolating, the sleep restful. Breakfast was served in their elegant downstairs restaurant. The front desk staff were great, eager to help. Paulo, was an excellent source of information about wines, beers, and the local bars as well as providing the welcome every time I returned to the hotel that makes a good hotel memorable.

Room Tip: Room with a terrace overlooking the river. I was in room 401.

This is a new hotel situated in Riberia Porto. There are a lot of high class ($$$) hotels in that part of Porto. This is a best place to stay but not everybody could afford that. This hotel is a good combination of excellent modern hotel and affordable price.

It's beautiful, modern hotel, that is very nicely situated close to the river bank and all its restaurants. You can also easily reach the other side (Vila Nova de Gaia) with its Port houses. My room was really small, but it was enough to sleep in during a four day conference. Bathroom was clean and spacious. There was a slightly unpleasent smell, but I didn't bother to complain, since I knew the place was full booked. Breakfast was delicious and the selection was wide. Definately a good value for the money.

A brand new design hotel which used to be an old port warehouse. Very modern, good service, kind personnel. Excellent location. Only 5 minutes walk to the river Douro with its terrasses. 15 minutes walk over the iron bridge to reach all the Port houses where you can have a good meal and port tasting.
We stayed for one night and had dinner in the modern and very clean restaurant. Great food and excellent cook who knows what he is doing. Rooms are modern and very clean, well equipped and very comfortable. I was very surprised by the price for the night. 1 night 2 people incl. tax only € 89,25. This hotel is certainly a gem among the hotels in Porto. I was glad I booked the room through Booking.com from Holland.

Room Tip: I have no room tips. I believe that all the rooms are as good as room 224
