    The Hotel has a own, free parking. The metro is only a 5-7min walk away.We had a room on the 3nd floor and it was really amazing.A big room, with a great stucco ceiling

  • Group of friends

    +: nice bathroom in the room. excelent breakfast -: double bed wasnt very big

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Friendly helpful staff. The grand period architecture/decor - the ceiling in our bedroom was like that in a stately home. Free on site parking (I never had a problem but the car park sometimes got full). Rooms reasonably priced. Bar prices low (although very limited selection and we never saw anyone else use it). We did not regret choosing this hotel.

    Poor plumbing - pipe hammer and the wash basin was slow to drain. Bathroom design - the position of the W.C. stopped the door opening fully, restricting access. Breakfast adequate and not the worst but could have been better.

    The excellent situation close to the centre of Porto. The comfortable room at a very affordable price (breakfast included). The friendly, accommodating staff.

    The continental breakfast was adequate, but not great. Unusually, for Portugal, the coffee was awful!

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    This was our second stay here and we hope our third won't be too long in coming. We love the decorated ceilings and the huge staircase (there is a lift too). The staff are welcoming and we felt secure comfortable.

    The plumbing was intermittently noisey but everything worked and the hot water never ran out

    The hotel is an beautiful big house with over 100 year of history and was told the original deco are mostly kept. Our room is very beautiful, spacious and comfortable. The morning shift staff is very friendly and helpful.

    The room facing the street would be a bit noisy.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    I chose it for price, location and the fact that parking was provided and was satisfied. We had a spacious light room.

    The room could have done with a refresh.

  • Group of friends

    We loved the location. Our room was spacious and clean, breakfast was cool too.

    Well, we had a room in a basement, and there was no heating, so we were basically freezing. And our bed was squeaking so loud!
