Gorgeous, elegant, extremely well located in the center of Porto. The staff is terrific, and I must include the healthy wide-range of delicious food that's served for breakfast. When traveling in Porto you may want a private guide. One who is an expert on Porto and its neighboring towns. One who tears his job with enthusiasm and is warm, and...

We are visiting for our honeymoon me and my husband The hotel is amazing and the location is just perfect. It is in the middle of the city center which makes everything easily accessible. Please try the cork house restaurant which is right next to it.

I picked this hotel because of the great location and proximity of many sites. I was pleasantly surprised at how beautiful the hotel was. The suite we booked was great, with a view directly onto the main square. The one thing I didn't think about was the noise level of the traffic. I would highly recommend this hotel, however if...

Absolutely fabulous place, well located. The staff couldn't have been more helpful with absolutely anything. It is clean, bright and airy and a very good 5 star hotel. The rooms are a good size with tea and coffee making facilities and the bathrooms outstanding. We will most definitely stay here again when vising Porto
