Great location, stylish rooms

Posted Jan 10, 2018
A lovely hotel in a great Ribeira location, just a couple of blocks back from the river. The room was very stylish, comfortable and clean, with a small balcony and a street view. The room was quite small but the bathroom was huge in comparison. The bed was very comfortable. I would have liked tea or coffee making facilities in the room, such as a kettle or coffee machine, but as I was only there two nights it didn’t matter - there was room service available and a nice bar downstairs. The staff were exceptionally helpful about finding and delivering some luggage I left behind.

Well located

Posted Jan 7, 2018
Visited over New Year. Excellent location near to river and attractions. Interesting conversion of old building and was very smartand bright.Good bar able to supply snacks anf coffee too. Rooms small but quiet considering town location. Bed very comfortable and good standard of linen. Disappointing supply of toiletries which weren't restocked. Same true of minibar. No coffee or tea in room.Breakfast buffet options were fine but coffee machines broke down regularly. Felt a bit short staffed but it was obviously very busy. Good for short break and only quick ferry or walk to port houses in Gaia.

Nice hotel for sightseeing and transportation

Very easy to walk around the city and it’s very close to the river. I really enjoyed the stay in Porto. Only one thing I wanted is coffee maker set.

Beautiful Hotel one block from the river

Posted Nov 28, 2017
Pros: the Staff, location, the building itself, cleanliness and comfortable beds and room, and of course, the breakfast.
Cons: closet space
Location: taxi stand right out front, hop on off buses, restaurants and riverfront cafes and a manageable walk to city centre which is uphill but doable for us
We loved the hotel, staff and location. It was one block up from the river and easy access to restaurants and a very nice little grocery store just below the hotel, which was very inexpensive. We booked a basic room which was nice but small but we managed and it was comfortable and clean. the only problem was there was not a big enough closet to hang clothes. you could hang a few shirts and short coats in the closet. Still, the room had a luxurious feel to it and we loved the partial view to the river and bridge. we wouldn't have changed our room for a bigger one with no view. The buffet breakfast provided lots of choices. There was always scrambled egg, bacon, various fruit, cheeses, breads, cereals, sweets, etc. all fresh and all well presented. We had dinner in the hotel one night and it was a bit expensive but very delicious. It is a small menu for dinner which you can view on their website. The hotel staff were always available, friendly and helpful; we were able to book our tours through the front desk. Your are also a walkable distance to the city centre (uphill) with shops, restaurants and the famous bookstore and historic sites. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend the hotel.

Great location to the Ribeiria Historical Center.

The hotel was not fully renovated at the time of our stay. The bar and coffee bar were not yet operational. It is a great hotel and will be better once the bar is up and operational.

Renovated hotel

Posted Oct 30, 2017
Very nice hotel in an old building which has been thoroughly renovated . Decorated very tastefully. Room was spacious. This hotel was right in the heart of the old town 50 metres from the Douro river. A very busy area ,very close to lots of eateries on the water front which is very nice during the night. Hotel was really good but when the hand soap ran out it was not replaced, apparently they were happy to replenish when asked. Don’t see why you have to request something basic like a bar of soap.
