Great location to hop around the town, my parents and I were staying for 1 night. Direction instruction to the place was clear, make easier by recognising the torre. It is a boutique hotel, unique, friendly staff, and we were given the family suite beside the reception. Clean, spacious, timely decorated and retained the old design. The garden is a...

I understand when I go to Europe that I have to put up with cigarette smoke. But what was unbearable about my room was it was on the ground floor right next to reception. Everyone smoked at that exact spot and since there is no ac you have to have the windows open. I am very sensitive to it and...

We had stayed in the Carris Hotel 2 weeks before in the heart of the Ribeira district and been surprised by how touristy Porto had become by the river. It was a huge relief to find that the real Porto still exists in an oasis of peace and tranquility just 15-20 walk from the shops and sights. The Castelo de...

A strange and enchanting hotel set back from the road in a commercial main street about 25 minutes walk outside the old town of Oporto. The hotel started life as a 1930s mansion house, each room individually furnished in a different baroque or rococo style... an echo of a bygone age of tall ceilings, chandeliers, murals and painted ceilings. The...

We stayed in the castle section and had a lovely view of Oporto which I'm not sure the garden rooms would have. No complaints at all about the narrow stairs or distance from the car park area to reception. The decorative walls are a joy to see and we haven't come across anything like it at this price level. The...

It's a castle so it'll be out in the country on a hill perhaps ? Yes ? No. No more than 7 minutes on the flash Oporto subway will bring you to Marques station, and from there it's a 150m walk down the slope. By taxi from the centre, it'll be around 8 EUR. It exudes style, and frankly you'll...

Try to imagine a place lost in time full of features and then ask for it to be in a city with parking and then ask for a family room which you can share with your kids and does not cost the earth....well we found it here and it is not a long walk from the city centre ( the...

We chose not to take our car into the centre of O Porto, instead left our car at the airport and got a taxi. We were absolutely amazed on arrival as, from the outside it looks unassuming but once through the gated driveway ( so very safe should you wish to park a car) one enters a world of charming,...

“the modern rooms are quiet and clean, simply furnished in an ikea design, so some might prefer the "period" rooms in the castelo.”

“Twin beds are only in the new buildings. Room 107 and 108 are downstairs and right next to the reception. Take a room higher up.”
