We liked the location of the property and it's uniqueness. Each room had the name of a certain artist and included their artwork in the room.

Excellent! Genuine, amazing staff!

Amazing!! This was my first time in Porto and having a clean and relaxing hotel is part of the travel experience. This hotel was excellent!!! The location was about a 5-10 minute walk from the city center. The surrounding area, did look a little abandoned but it was safe to walk at any time. The staff was amazing, so friendly and helpful. We were given a complementary glass of Porto wine upon our arrival. They checked in on us during our first day and whenever they saw us around the lobby or flower room. Their attention and concern about our enjoyment and well being was genuine and was greatly appreciated. I would/will stay here again if I visit Porto in the future and highly recommend this hotel. The flower room is lovely and nice to hang out at. The view from the restaurants’ balcony is stunning. During the day/night you can see Gaia and the wineries. The breakfast was good, as other reviews have stated, however I’m sure you could find other places to have breakfast at for a lower price point. But sometimes it’s nice to just have breakfast so near by. Again, I can’t say enough how wonderful the staff was, they even offered to let us use the showers in the spa before our flight!!! I highly recommend you consider this hotel for your stay.

    Love the concept of the hotel room

    Service is fantastic. The concierge helped us locate the nearest post office and help to mail the envelope. I needed hot water and the hotel restaurant never reject my requests. Love the super king size bed and the extra pillows in the closet.
