Feeling like Royalty in Porto

Extremely luxurious and well appointed room. The Staff was very will trained and congenial. The concierge staff made you feel very welcome and treated you like you were their only guest. You will be spoiled after you've stayed here.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Take the 1day yellowline bus tour in the morning and get off at the Port Lodges in Vila Nova De Gaia. Start at the top at Taylors. Great tour, tasting and lunch with a view from the patio, then work you way down the hill with more wine tasting and return on the bus to Porto

A great hotel in Porto

Spent a spectacular 3 days in Porto. This hotel was a welcome relief after the redeye flight from NYC. Splendidly appointed, with wonderful rooms, service, and amenities, it made the stay just perfect! The room was very large and comfortable. The hotel is centrally located, placing everything in easy walking distance. Did lots of walking around the old town, visited restaurants, and explored the waterfront. Porto has more abandoned buildings than I expected. However, I never felt unsafe. I'd happily return to Porto, and this hotel

One week stay

The hotel is perfectly located in a safe area, close to many places of interest. The staff was fantastically friendly, as everyone everywhere in the town! The room was smaller than expected, but well kept and with a great bathroom. I was supposed to have a view on the inner garden, but do not expect anything close to it. It seems the whole block is under renovation, so you suffer from the noise and the workers' direct view into your room. There was no balcony (which would have been useless in such conditions anyway) and the windows were locked. Available channels on the TV are scarce. Breakfast is not included. I would advise to cross the street and go to any of the close bars which serve excellent and cheap breakfasts and menus. The wellness center of the hotel is worth the visit, though. I have had a great time there, enjoying all kinds of care provided by nice and attentionate people.
