Having read the reviews about room size, we opted for a junior suite and had room 502 on the top floor. As another reviewer remarked, this is right in the eaves, and was a little noisy due to the incessant rain on the roof! .
The room itself was large, but we found it quite dark. There was one small window, with beautiful views to the river, but limited lighting in the room. The bed was comfortable, and huge, but I did manage to flood the bathroom with the shower over the bath on the first day.
We appreciated having a kettle in the room so we could make our own tea and coffee during the day
There was a strange 'drain' like smell, which we reported to the front desk, who were concerned, but this seemed to be prevalent at other places over Porto, not just the hotel, so perhaps it was the rain?
Front desk staff were always very helpful, providing us with a loan umbrella, and great at giving us directions and recommendations for restaurants.
Minor criticism is that the 'hot' food at breakfast was lukewarm - we went at various times during our stay, both early and late.
Having looked at the locations and other hotels in Porto, think we made a great choice. Would stay there again.
