5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

I loved this place, service, location and decor. It’s a boutique property that offers everything. The staff is wonderful and super helpful. They made all the reservations we requested. Their recommendations were all amazing. As an interior designer, I pay attention to decor and functionality. This place works like a well oiled Machine and looks amazing while at it. The whole place smells amazing. If the concierge is reading this review, please let me know what the scent was in the entire hotel? I’m happy to buy some nd ship home to California.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

This was a very chic boutique hotel with an interesting design overlooking the Duoro with lovely views, especially when the weather allows outside dining. The reception staff were attentive and helpful recommending some excellent restaurants or tours if you ask them. The room was not the largest but had all the necessary requirements, the bathroom was more of an extension of the bedroom. There was a rather pointless balcony which was like being in a brown box without a particular view other than into an office building opposite. Breakfast was excellent as was the waiting staff. Not perfect but an ok place to stay and close to the city centre.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The decor of the property is extremely unique and quite Avante garde, as the name would suggest. It was very interesting and there was something to look at everywhere - from floor to ceiling. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating - quite professional. Each room in this rather small boutique hotel is an homage to a modern artist - we stayed in the Pablo Picasso room with its striking artwork and 'Picasso like feel'. We had a lovely balcony with a view of the Duoro River. The restaurant was great, as well with an extensive wine list/cellar. The location of the hotel was a bit apart from the hustle and bustle of the city center or the riverfront, but most everything we wanted to see was within walking distance - with the exception of the wine cellars that were located on the other side of the river.
