This hotel has the prefect location, in the middle of the old centre and close to the Douro. There are many nice restaurants nearby. The rooms in this old building are really modern. Clean, comfi beds, nice shower. We were lucky to have a room with a view on the Douro. I would definitely stay here again!!

We stayed for 3 nights on our honeymoon. Fantastic location and nice modern décor. Lots of helpful recommendations from friendly staff, Paulo thank you!! Small rooms, but we did move to a larger room on the 4th floor on the second night facing the river and it was worth it! The regular rooms although nicely decorated were very, very small. The breakfasts were also very good and looked forward to them every morning!

Room Tip: Choose a Superior room on the 4th or 5th floor facing the river. Well worth it!

The hotel is superbly located in the ribeira district in Porto. We booked a room with view which was worth it! The hotel staff gave us easy recommendations to the interesting tourist sites. The staff also assisted us in finding a pay shop for highway toll fares and recommended the most excellent spot to enoy a francheshina sandwich. If you go to Porto, just book this modern hotel even though the rooms are rather small. The breakfast is good, free wifi and centrally located close to the port houses and lots of lovely restaurants.

This hotel is in one of the best modernised buildings I have stayed in. Originally a wine warehouse it has been extensively modernised in a sympathetic and excellently planned way. Stay here and you are literally sleeping on Roman foundations! We were cordially welcomed by the staff on arrival. We wanted a river view and the duty manager offered us a choice of two possibilities one of which had beautiful views of the river and bridge, at night you could see the Port signs illuminating the area. It was clear that the general philosophy of the hotel management was to make sure that guests wishes were catered for as much as possible. The room was clean comfortable and well appointed. The old river front was barely five minutes walk away and the city centre no more than fifteen minutes. The breakfast in the morning was excellent, well presented and tasty, excellent value. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and would recommend it to anybody visiting Porto.

I stayed here for 6 nights (1-6 june 2013). This hotel is in Ribeira area down by the river Duoro just the perfect hotel in perfect location! The rooms are relatively small and without much storage space but they are nicely decorated and equipped with all the amenities. The WiFi didn't work in my room but work downstairs in the lobby and bar.
The staff were really excellent, polite, professional.
Breakfast and dinner menu just excellent.
I would definitely recommend a stay here!

Room Tip: ask for a river view room if a possible

There are unquestionably more expensive and better hotels in Porto but there can be very few which are better sited offering excellent service and value for money. The hotel is in the Ribeira area down by the River Douro waterfront right by the D Luis bridge. Do walk across on the top level - but no place for vertigo!

The hotel staff are very helpful, the standard rooms very small by US standards but modern and very clean. You will probably only use it for sleeping in anyway, there is so much more to do outside. Breakfast was included in our arrangements and the buffet very good. In fact the restaurant which we used for lunch on our departure day was transformed by the addition of table linen and wine glasses. Having said that there are restaurants everywhere you look in that area. Pricier if they have a river view of course but we did enjoy them all.

Must things to do? Cross the Douro on the D Luis bridge on the top to Gaia the city on the opposite side of the river and come back on the lowe level. Catch the funicular up to the top of the city. Visit the railway station Sao Bento (makes the UK equivalents look shabby!) and if you cannot take a 1 day cruise on the Douro do take the 50 minute boat trip down to the river mouth and under Portos 6 bridges. This last for €10 each.

Porto was what I imagined Paris might have been like at the turn of the century in terms of architecture. Go and enjoy!

Room Tip: Probably the higher the better but ours on the 2nd floor facing the river was fine.

Nice hotel. We stayed in a Junior suite well worth the extra, plenty of room and a separate seating area.

The food was very good - a brave attempt at an English breakfast and excellent dinner menu. We found that here (as well as other restaurants) that the food was served warm rather than hot, could be a cultural thing.

We hired a car which was a mistake. parking is 20 Euros a day and the city traffic in Porto is horrendous.

Room Tip: Go for a junior suite, river view and plenty of room. Worth the extra.
