We all loved staying here. It's elegant and stylish in a great central location. The staff were incredibly welcoming and friendly, helping us with restaurant choices, taxis, walking tours and more. The rooms are light, airy and well designed with very very comfortable mattresses and beautiful bed linen.

Our room was LOVELY with a french balcony overlooking the street below. The...

The old building was completely remodeled and the result is amazing: a small and very charming hotel. The room is spacious and well decorated (50/ 60's furniture ). However, to fits the modern decor , the hotel chose poor lighting , specially in bathroom. I like the concept , but I think could be interesting add a lamp for those...

This was a great place to stay in Porto, Going into it after a full day of walking and site seeing was such a beautiful surprise. It was really nicely decorated and styled. It was cozy and romantic. Brunch was more than plentiful and delicious.

This Townhouse is nothing to look at from the outside, so entering in comes as a pleasant surprise. Well located, and within walking distance of the metro - about 12 minutes, and the old city, the room we had was generous, with a good size bathroom. This seemed to be a hotel designed by a designer, and not by a...

Thank you Martin. Lovely comment with loads of things to note and make a better stay for your next stay with us and for future guest.

I took my wife to Rosa et al in Porto for a long weekend. It was perfect. We arrived from the airport on the metro and wandered along the street to the hotel. It felt like arriving at a house rather than a hotel. There are only six rooms here - we were on one of the ones at the...
