From the moment we arrived, we were impressed by Rosa Et Al's hospitality. One of the owners - two siblings - are always around to help answer questions, welcome you to your room or chat about Porto. The building itself is beautifully redone and gives you the chance to stay in a traditional Porto townhouse but with great amenities. The rooms are beautiful, large and full of light and some look onto the small garden in the back. The brunch was the best - delicious, high quality and filled with local, organic food. The location is great - just a short walk from some of the best restaurants and bar areas. And throughout, we were so impressed by the level of attention and care that went into everything.
In short, it's a wonderful, romantic place to stay in a great location with wonderful hosts!
