        Individual guest reviews

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          It has unique character without being ostentatious.

        • Couple
          10.0

          Great staff! The old building and the well planned old style (but new and in perfect conditions) decoration are very pleasant. The room is very clean and comfortable.

          Everything was perfect.

        • Group of friends
          10.0

          A little gem ,in the middle of a shopping district ,a really unique experience ,the decor from the 20"s has been lovingly restored to the original condition ,The Dali Lama stayed here in the past as did many other famous people ,truly a Grand Hotel

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          It is one of the best hotels which we were: the historical furniture and atmosphere are preserved very carefully. It is very clean, excellent situation, very attentive personals.

          Coffee in the breakfast.

        • Family with children
          9.6

          Good location close to the city center.Excellent decor and well maintained. The rooms were spacious and maintained to a high standard for a 3 star. The staff were very helpful and friendly.

        • Single
          9.2

          Location. Public space on the ground floor was awesome. Croissants at the breakfast buffet were delicious.

          Our room was very small (we booked for the cheepest room) and shabby.

        • Couple
          5.0

          The common areas are attractive and the breakfast is ample.

          The room was depressing and plain and even though the neighborhood is "central" we found it to be one of the lesser pretty parts of town.

        • Group of friends
          9.6

          It is arguably one of the most beautiful hotels I have ever stayed in and I mean that. The sheer elegance of the public areas belongs to a long forgotten era and makes any stay worthwhile.

          No fried eggs available for breakfast.

        • Family with children
          7.0

          Very beautifel, one of the oldest hotels, right in the centre of the city.

          The rooms are too small. and there were no wifi in our room.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          The staff was very helpful and friendly. The hotelis in in excellent, prime location for those who want to see Porto. It has a very nice, tasteful docor and is relaxed and quiet. We always got a good night sleep after roaming the city for the whole day till very late.There are a couple of decent restaurants close by that serve good food till quite late.

          There is nothing that is not to be liked about this hotel.

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          Great hotel in the middle of town. Nice original features, is therefor different from the "13 in a dozen" kind of hotels. At 5 minute walking distance from the main metro lines with direct connection to the airport, and close to the main city railway station.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          Excellent location, very pleasant staff, splendid public areas and good breakfast

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          Both breakfast and dinner in the large dining hall are quite memorable. The english styled bar and library room are scenic.

        • Group of friends
          7.8

          Lovely old hotel with style & history, the staff and service were good

          Some of the rooms are quite small, we were ok but our friends had to change rooms

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          The hotel staff were very very friendly and the service in general was good. Great central location.
