Hotel Carris Porto Ribeira

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Our family of 4 (with 2 teenagers) spent three nights here and recommend it. Clean throughout, is in an old building with some interesting history but modernized tastefully. The staff had great recommendations and were always helpful. Perfectly located near the river with easy access to the old part of town. A couple of minute walk away is a great restaurant (Jimao) that you should check out (make a reservation). There was some construction going on outside our rooms during the day and at times thought they were going to break through the wall. Didn't bother us as we are heavy sleepers, but I'd make sure that you get a room away from that part of the hotel

Although we only stayed one night at this hotel we found it to be a great base from which to explore the city Check in was friendly and efficient Room was modern and clean with quirky shower arrangements Mini bar and coffee making facilities were available and the beds were very comfortable My only regret is that we didn’t have time to stay at this hotel for a few more nights Thank tou

Very nice hotel in the ideal location for seeing the sights. Staff were are very friendly. Room was comfortable and had all the relevant trimmings. the only drawback was the road facing room was a tad noisy in the early morning as the locals love to sound their horns a lot!! overall a very nice stay

Though the views from the room are nice, the rooms are extremely small and there is no hotel parking just a parking further up which is hard to navigate because of all the one ways. The best feature of the hotel is the bar with its very welcoming servers.

We stayed 5 days in this Hotel and we had a really pleasant stay. Very helpful stuff, clean rooms and very good breakfast.The location is very close to almost everything, and you can see the whole city on foot.We only had a little problem with the flush toilet, but they fix it the next day. If I was to return to Porto I’d stay here again and recommend to friends.

This hotel is perfectly located if you want to be in the centre, by the riverside, and within easy walking distance of many major attractions. The reception staff were welcoming and helpful, and the breakfasts were very good (including providing me with gluten-free bread rolls), although they need to do something about their coffee machines who seem to give up the ghost in turn. We had booked a standard room and understood that this would be small - it was perfectly adequate. What we had not appreciated was that standard rooms are either located at the front of the hotel, overlooking a very busy street, and with not very efficient sound-proofing, or at the back of the hotel where there is currently some renovation work going on. Thus we had the full benefit of the traffic noise, plus street cleaning and rubbish collection in the early hours of the morning. To top it all, there is a disco in a former market just round the corner from the hotel thumping out techno music, starting out after midnight and going on until five in the morning and making sleep impossible. It advertises several such events every month. This is out of the control of the hotel, but if we had known about it we would have booked elsewhere.

Loved this modern hotel carved out of ancient walls. We wanted a large rooms with outdoor space and ended up in one of the suites with 2 decks. One faced the city and the other the Douro river. It was amazing. Room was modern, beautiful and clean. Great location for exploring.

Overall dissatisfied. Initially our room was subpar. It smelt of smoke, the shower was broken,and WiFi connection was terrible. After raising our concern the staff upgraded us immediately. The second day of our stay, we were informed we would be able to purchase room service and then when we went to order it was closed(on New Years night). I was very frustrated as we specifically checked with staff and made no other reservation. For the price of this hotel, the only thing it’s got going is the location. I would highly recommending staying somewhere else.

All good.  Great example of how properly to restore/reuse an old warehouse building.  Large clean room, very modern, great view. Extremely helpful concierge and desk staff who easily assisted in completing some of our plans.  Only negative was there is only one elevator and it is slow (although we did sneak onto the service elevator at times).  With the breakfast room being on -3, the wait was excruciatingly long.

We really like this hotel for lots of reasons the location, the friendly staff, excellent breakfast and cleanliness. However this time we were in the new part in room 230 which is just too small, we struggled to get past the end of the bed and doing so risked injury on the wall mounted TV. There is nowhere to place soap or shampoo in the shower. We were however very pleased on finding tea and coffee making facilities in the room.
