“NICE HOTEL, NICE LOCATION”
Reviewed September 2, 2011

Sometimes the hotels are difficult to find. We found the Porto Antigo (Old Port ) in the internet.
The location is beautifull in the river bank of the Douro River where they built a dam. The hotel is very close to the water and has their own marina, and the place is also used for the canoeing people. The hotel itself is good without luxus, the breakfast is good, but we tryied the dinner and it takes long time and it cames wrong. Anyway the wine was very good. All the rooms have view to the river and someones have balcony. I recomend this hotel mainly due the location in Douro Valey, not yet in the vineyards area but very close and in a beautifull area.

This entire hotel has been totally updated and is very comfortable. We stayed on a weeknight and were able to get a good price. It is right on the Douro river and rooms and restaurant have spectacular views.

We found this hotel after driving around the switchback roads of the Douro Valley. The scenery in this area is to die for and tourists are rare! Hence the lack of hotels. We had spent the day exploring and being so impressed by the beauty of the scenery and the tranquility of the region. Towards late evening we needed to find somewhere to stay but, as this area is so underdeveloped from a tourist point of view, we had trouble finding somewhere, until we discovered this absolute gem of a hotel. It is literally right on the River Douro.

We were greeted by the friendly receptionist and offfered a complimentary glass of port. We took the drink on the terrace overlooking the river beside the hotel's beautiful pool and the receptionist took our photo. Our room overlooked the river and the pool: the beauty and tranquility was simply amazing. The room and bathroom were big enough and comfortable enough - my only criticism was that the style of decor seemed to be a bit lost in the seventies, but, in a way, that seemed to add to the charm of the place. The view from the room was so beautiful that you could forgive a minor style faux pas.

There are no restaurants or bars in the vicinity - such is the splendid isolated beauty of the place. So we ate at the hotel. There was a set menu which was one of the nicest meals that we had during our two week tour of Portugal and Spain. There was an international clientele at the hotel, which also has a bar where you can chat to the other visitors from all parts of the world but there were mostly French visitors when we were there. I don't know if it was remoteness or the beauty of the place or the friendly atmosphere in the hotel but all the different nationalities in the bar seemed to to want to communicate.

Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer
