One of the very few independent Hotels, family owned and managed for over 38 years, with a solid tradition of good service. Comfortable accommodations, an attentive and efficient staff on permanent call to assist guests with their needs, allied to a perfect location downtown Porto make this 4 star Hotel one of the best addresses in the city. With 111 rooms, of which 20 are suites, the Hotel is located in the traditional centre of Porto, 300 metters from the Metro station TRINDADE with direct connection to the Airport and Campanh train station, steps away from Rua Santa Catarina, the main shopping zone of the city. Hotel Dom Henrique-Downtown is at the proximity of the Theatres, several monuments including the ancient City area recognised by UNESCO as World Heritage, the Douro River Cruises boarding quay and 5 minutes away from the lively bars area of Rua da Galeria de Paris. The "17 RESTAURANT & BAR" is a new gastronomic space with two valences, Bar and Restaurant, located on two top floors of Hotel Dom Henrique-Downtown, designed to provide unique experiences of well-being and comfort in an elegant, yet informal and relaxed, ambience and with a judicious selection of music. Both the restaurant and the bar have terrace with fabulous views over the city of Porto, where smoking is permitted. You can also appreciate the tilled wall, created by Jlio Resende, a renowned artist, in Restaurant "ALM-MAR", on the ground floor. Hotel totally smoke-free.

Good location and good breakfast

While the location is in good proximity to the Trinidad metro and to the tourist bus stop near mcDonalds, this hotel needs updating, starting with the antiquated hair dryers popular on the 70s. The Mattress was too soft

One of the best I have stayed in

This hotel was a late choice, but we were very pleased with it. Centrally located, clean well appointed room, good varied breakfast, good buffet for dinner. We were on the 8th floor. The bar is on the 17th floor and has a superb view of the city and out to the coast. One snag - there is a bus terminus in the street outside and even on the 8th floor the noise of engines idling was noticeable. We only ate in the restaurant one night. The buffet was good but might get repetitive if you have it more than once. There was an a la carte menu too, though.

Try the Cafe Guarany in the main Avenue Aliados. It does good meals and is also good for a coffee and sandwich.
