Hotel Carris Porto Ribeira

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The rooms are modern with a quirky feature of Venetian blinds over the glass splitting the bedroom and the bathroom so you can choose to have this open or closed. Fridge and safe included and my room had a quaint balcony onto the street. The hotel bar is great for a pre dinner drink, after of course a visit to the hotel gym (it's small but you can get your cardio and weights done). I was there on business so I can add that the function rooms and catering was very good and the staff friendly. Location is great as its a walk away from the river and close to local sights as well as plenty of bars and restaurants.

We visited Porto on Feb 19th for 4 nights . Hotel is in great location within 10 minute walk from train station . Porto is extremely hilly and this hotel is down near river so uphill walk to city. Wear sensible shoes ! We were allocated a room at back of hotel with a river view. Room was quite large , well equipped , nice bathroom and bed was comfortable. Hotel is spotless .Breakfast is basic enough but adequate, staff on duty very pleasant and helpful. Only complaint we had was on first evening we arrived back at 5 pm to find our room hadn’t been made up, we mentioned this to reception and it didn’t happen again. Overall a great hotel, very well located for visiting all parts of Porto . Do take the little tram out to Foz it is lovely out there.

Cannot say anything negative about this hotel, awesome location near the Douro river, very helpful staff who spoke English perfectly, fast Wi-Fi, spacious and most importantly CLEAN rooms which seem to be brand new. The superior double room had everything you can ask for, even a river view, and was just what we needed after a full day out in the rain. Did not have any noise issues as other reviewers mentioned. The hotel is also conveniently located near a SPAR store and taxis are always parked opposite the hotel in case you get tired of walking.

Very clean rooms, modern hotel. Standard room is quite small but adequate with good air con/heating. Our room faced the road which did get quite noisy at night but not a major problem. Good breakfast - bacon, scrambled eggs, fruit, cereals etc. Fantastic location just a street back from the river. Would visit again.

A very nice hotel in the centre of Porto, opposite the Port wineries. The room was very comfortable and fairly spacious. The shower was excellent which is always a bonus. My view was out on the street so nothing special. I'm not sure if there are rooms with nice views. Breakfast was the typical continental type - the standard choices. Very nice bread. Staff were friendly and helpful. If the weather had been better it is perfectly placed for nice walks along Douro river.

this really is a lovely hotel, however with so much work being carried out around it, I found the noise levels especially during the late evening and early morning was very bad. It sounded to me like deliveries such as metal or containers/skips were being delivered at this time due to the congestion and upheaval it would cause during the day. This being said it was disturbing. Having made this point, which is beyond the hotels control, the hotel is lovely. Immaculately clean, which is a credit to the house cleaning staff, on one day wax had spilt on the glass at the front of the hotel and was cleaned expediently and without any fuss. The rooms were also immaculate. We ate breakfast at the hotel, which was amazing, similarly the staff were professional and very polite. I must mention 1 member of staff. Claudia... a credit to the hotel and who personified what a great hotel is all about, if I return to Porto due to this member of staff I would not stay anywhere else.

We had a great stay at the Carris Porto Ribeira in Porto this February. The hotel's location is top-notch and a 2 minute walk to the river district of restaurants. The room was the smallest we encountered in Porto, but we had a great view of the river/Gaia/port houses. The concierge was so sweet and helpful, helping us navigate the city and locate a shop to purchase a new suitcase. The Carris Porto was a great launch pad!

Great place near Ribeira and the Bridge. Very friendly staff. Comfortable and silent room with a nice view. Clean . Nice architecture and decor. Fresh breakfast with a nice variety. Nice price/ quality ratio. Worth a visit

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
