Yes, it's a wonderful place to stay, in main shopping street, close to the very center of the city. The ground floor is magnificent, including the big breakfast room, garage is available and the room rate is not too expensive, in the end.

This hotel is in the city center, in walking distance to all main attractions. It has a classic decor (good taste) in the public areas and modern rooms and bathrooms, both very spacious especially considering the old building. We stayed in the -1F, where I was told are the best rooms (no views). There's parking at the hotel.
Wifi costs 10 euros for 24hrs of use.
Breakfast is included and buffet is of good quality with a big selection, making it a good start for the day.
Staff is friendly and helpful, especially the ones in the evenings, suggesting good restaurants off the touristic area.

We stayed here so we could be within a stone's throw of Porto's shops, restaurants and attractions and we were not disappointed. The rooms were sharp and cosy, the corridors extra-wide, and the staff very helpful and friendly. We visit Porto every year enroute to Galicia and will definitely stay longer on our next trip. We had an early flight so were unable to take part in the breakfast, but will review it on our next trip. The only negative was that wi-fi wasn't free. That would have made our stay perfect.

Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in standard double room. Basic room with all standard amenities like TV, bathroom, safe was not working, wifi, acceptable bed. Unfortunately on street level so at night sometimes noisy and no view. Hotel is beautiful and recently redecorated as I was told. Very nice interior combination of historical and modern. Good bar en restaurant. Service was good and very friendly. Location excellent. Buffet breakfat included and fine with good choice. Price was excellent. Porto is a magnificent destination hihgly recommended. Will come backt ot this hotel without hesitation bit next time superior room.

Room Tip: Choose superior rooms on higher floors because of noise

Part of a two centre holiday with two friends and wives. All staff were friendly and very helpful, with reception staff always willing to give advice and support. Breakfast good quality and a fine start to the day. Rooms for all were comfortable, with size adequate for our needs.
Only irritant was the fixed coat hangers making hanging some clothes more difficult than needed.

Room Tip: Our friends had a corner suite with terrace, enabling us to join them for a quiet review of our day...

This is a lovely hotel with friendly, helpful staff. The young barman on duty when I was there (4th and 5th Sept) was particularly helpful with very good english. Ask them for good restaurants in the area as they recommended two for me which were terrific.

Room Tip: Room was a bit small, might be worth paying more for a bigger one.
