A Chic Hotel in the heart of Porto

Posted Jul 1, 2014
Pros: The location, cleanliness and chilled out atmosphere
Cons: Tea and Coffee in the room
Location: Close to the old port and near to the Iron Bridge over the Doura River to the Port Wine Cellars.
We were greeted by friendly reception staff who were keen to advise on the City of Porto and provided guidance on good places to eat and drink when asked. The hotel is well situated in the heart of the old quarter and just a few minutes stroll down old cobbled streets to the beautiful old port area of Ribeira do Porto which is a UNISCO heritage site. The hotel has a chic boutique feel inside and a charming traditional exterior. Our room had a street view with French windows and a little iron balcony. You can open the windows for the night air or you can close them up and cover with a double glazed unit to provide peace and quite from the busy street below.

Good location

Posted May 16, 2014
Well located in the old town a close walk to all the main attractions. Only bugbear was the the one lift that was constantly busy so you had to wait ages when you wanted to get to breakfast. Because of the layout of the hotel you can't take he stairs. Otherwise very good.

Great location, contemporary hotel

Posted May 5, 2014
We visited the hotel in April 2014. They've done a great job of creating a modern feel in an historic part of town. Couldn't be closer to the Riberia riverfront and great views of the bridge and Gaia port houses from our Junior Suite on the 3rd floor. The hotel restaurant is hidden away on the lower floors, but don't let that put you off, as it's great value for the quality of food and service. My only criticism would be that room 313 could really do with a sofa. There's a lot of empty space which could be more functional.

Nice hotel close to the river

Posted Apr 28, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Cleanliness
Location: Walk across the bridge and do some port tasting. There is also a cute boat ride you can take around the river. All minutes away from the hotel.
The river view was perfect! It rained a couple of days and it didn't matter because we could enjoy the beautiful scenery from our room. The room was expectedly small but the bed could have been cleaner. The throw pillows and the blanket at the bottom of the bed had stains. They also did not provide an iron (but offered ironing services at a cost) and they provided minimum number of towels and no robes.

The room was too small

Posted Apr 17, 2014
Pros: The location.
Cons: A little bigger room. It was so difficult to move in the room. The closet space should be bigger with more hangers.
Location: A lot to do nearby as the location of the hotel is very strategic which is what the hotel owners are taking advantage of.
The hotel has " tailor made" rooms. The bathroom provided one small soap. The staff and the facilities were not upto par as it should be for a four star hotel. The closet ha d three hangers! I think the owners/ managers and the staff should stay in the hotels' different rooms so see for themselves if the facilities are comfortable or not.

Great option near central Porto: great price/value

Posted Feb 18, 2014
Pros: Convenience and price
Cons: Have option to include breakfast buffet in Expedia reservation
Location: Take the yellow bus for a cheap way to view all the major sites in Porto.
This hotel is very well located near the river, with a dozen restaurant options for lunch and dinner. No noise at night. Very friendly staff. You are just at the beginning of most tours to Porto, and can walk over to the port wine tasting area, or take a short cab ride. Does not have river views, but other than that it is a great option.

Carris Hotel Porto - Good place to stay

Posted Jan 7, 2014
Pros: I liked the architecture and renovation of the building, the comfort of the room and the central location.
Cons: Faster elevators.
Location: Very central. Close to bars and restaurants on the riverfront, the bridge to Gaia and its port 'bodegas', the railway station and places of interest.
The Carris Hotel Porto occupies a prime spot near the river front in the Ribeira district of Porto. From here, it's a stone's throw to various bars, tapas places, restaurants and cafés on or around the waterfront. The hotel iteself has a brekfast room / restaurant, a tapas bar (that needs to be booked in advance) and a café off the reception area. The hotel itself is a beautifully renovated building - the old architecture complimented by the clean, modern decor. As a single traveller, my room was on the small side, but perfectly adequate for a short stay. The bed was clean and comfortable, and the walk-in shower was excellent. My room faced away from the main road, so was quiet. Friends who were staying in a road-facing room expereinced quite a lot of noise (but it was New Year...) Any criticisms? The elevators were very slow to arrive. I'd happily stay here again.
