Loved, loved, loved this little hotel in Porto! It was the perfect location for us as we wanted to stay down by the riverside. The breakfast buffet was very nice and the rooms were extremely spacious and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.

Best location. This hotel is within 1/2 block from Ribeira Street next to the river. Everything that you would like to see is within walking distance from here. The Cathedral, Palace, Livraria Lello, Port Lodges, restaurants are all within a 10 minute walk. We parked in the parkade just across the Luiz I bridge which took us about 8 minutes to walk to. Breakfast was great and the staff were helpful.
