        The prime location giving a beautiful, central location from which to enjoy and explore Porto.

        We would have liked a more extensive room service menu for 2 nights when we decided to stay and dine in for dinner.

      • Older travelers

        The location is stunning, particularly if like us you had a room with a river view and balcony. I had asked for a specific room and got it which was great. The hotel is in the heart of the Ribeira district close to the port wine houses and surrounded by reasonable restaurants. The hotel staff were helpful and friendly and the rooms reasonably well appointed. There was a good selection of food at breakfast. It was convenient for visiting the major areas of Porto and you could avoid the steep hill climbs by using the funicular and cable car both of which were close by. We loved it and hope to return.

        It was more expensive than we would usually pay, but as this was a special occasion we pushed the boat out!!

        Hotel was in a great location on the water front. Reception staff were very helpful.

        The rooms were quite small, especially the 'city view' one we had one night. The quality of breakfast was disappointing.

        A convenient place to stay

        The cafe was unmanned several times. Messages to the residents via reception were delivered late or not at all.

        The location is great. It is in easy walking distance of the port lodges in Gaia and there is dining and shopping across the street. The hotel is right on the Duoro River. The staff was always very helpful and never in a hurry to move on to something of someone else.

        The room was a bit small compared to the price.

        The location is probably the best feature of this hotel. When you stay make sure to spend a little more for a river view room. The rooms are very comfortable and spatious and afford sweeping views over the Douro river and the sherry houses on the opposite river bank.

        The hotel has an excellent location, with a beautiful sightseeing. The staff was very kind an polite, always trying to help with information and making the stay as comfortable as possible.

        Staircase to the elevator.

        We booked a deluxe double room with a river view. I'm not sure that's what we got. The room was on the side of the hotel and only by leaning out of the window could you actually see the river. The hotel is in a very touristy and noisy location and we didn't really enjoy this. Nor is it easy to find as access is down a little narrow street. NOt the best as far as we were concerned.

        The location. Noisy and crowded.

        Great location, on the riverfront. Lots to do. Very helpful and courteous staff. Corner room was huge! Very comfortable.

        Outside the hotel, many restaurants, very popular, can sometimes hear street noise ( music) especially on wekends

        Magic location. Very comfortable room, did request a corner room with a view of the river and it was truly unbelievable., Great size, wonderful outlook... The lights of the port tasting area and monastery on the hill. Enjoyed the relaxing sounds of the, seagulls etc. a true escape location. Very convenient ...could walk everywhere. Would definitely stay there again.

        Arrived at checkin time 3pm by car to discover there was no road access. Had to get dropped off in rain and run down to hotel to discover there is no public car access between 11am and 5.30pm due to hotel being on a World Heritage Site. Parked car in nearby car park and then at 5.30pm drove down to drop off luggage. Would have been so much easier to know facts before hand......maybe include this info with confirmation details.

        The hotel was excellent,ideally located in the heart of the old city with charm as you would expect of this hotel's calibre. The staff were friendly and very helpful. We were even given a complimentary glass of port each on our arrival. Whilst not the cheapest hotel in the area it represented great value for money for its quality of facilities, breakfast and service. Would recommend to others

        Not really meant to be a criticism but the hotel did not provide an evening meal option; this may because of the time of year we stayed there!

        The exterior and location are excelent

        Breakfast can be better - no vegetables at all, you can't do tea by yourself, no diet products, like yogurts zero fat

        This hotel has the best location possible if you want to visit Porto as a tourist, Not much in the way of facilities but who needs those when you step out the entrance and are right on the quayside.
