        Individual guest reviews

        • Fantastic view in our room, Served us complimentary glasSes of port wine on arrival and many restaurants in walking distance. A convenient place to stay and the location is incredible in a UNESCO building overlooking the river. Staff are friendly and helpful, the food is excellent and the Services is really nice.

          The hotel bar is typically dull, uninteresting and expensive, breakfast could be improved.

        • Location cannot be beaten and the port wine is really amazing, wasn’t a big fan now. Hotel is very pleasant, the staff is friendly and room extremely comfortable, large marble bath. Breakfast was delicious, and there are great restaurants within blocks.

          Parked car in nearby car park, small and sad bathroom.

        • Its location is perfect and cabs are cheap and the tram to Foz is well worth. The hotel is comfortable and the staff are friendly. The rooms are spacious and breakfast is excellent.
