I stayed at this hotel in November 2013 (sorry for the very late review! I hope it still makes it up) and just had to write a review because I still think about this place- it deserves a strong recommendation if you are traveling to Porto!! This hotel is small, but has so much elegance and charm. Very ornate, very...

Old-fashioned hotel perfectly located. Great staff at the reception area; I thought that the staff in the breakfast room could have smiled a little. Beautiful cosy public areas. Our room was quiet and the bathroom was big. It could be improved with some fresh paint though.

We really liked Grande hotel do Porto. The rooms were tidy, personnel was friendly and everything worked well. We also enjoyed the breakfast. The location of the hotel was perfect -nearby the bus station and not far from railway station and metro stops. I recommend.

Centrally located and with lots of European charm. The staff are super friendly and helpful and responsive to resolving issues that might arise (in our case, a room change). Standard rooms are well-appointed and comfortable, though not fancy. Breakfast is elegantly laid out and ample. Excellent value. BEWARE: The discount rooms are impossibly small.

Warrants a 3+ or 4-, so I am rounding up. Old style hotel with abundant character in the common areas on the ground floor and clean, smallish city-sized rooms (with air conditioning) upstairs. Sits on a bustling pedestrian street in the heart of Porto not all that far from the river and most sites, though you might want to consider...

Beautiful old hotel in one of the shopping areas of Porto, The hotel has character. Our 2 person room was very small but it was no problem for us. The dining room was very spacious where we had a good proper breakfast. Personal is very friendly and helpfull. We feld welcome and had a good time.

Stayed here for two nights. The hotel is a five minute walk from Bolhao metro station and is located on one of Porto's busiest shopping street. It is surrounded by cafes and shops and there is a three storey shopping centre about two minutes away. The lobby, bar and reception are quite old fashioned but very comfortable. The rooms were...

Stayed here for three nights. The rooms are small but okay if you are out most of the day. Annoying that no free tap water is available at the table in the restaurant and there is a surcharge for credit card payments. Lovely ground floor public rooms, very central location and helpful staff.

After an overnight flight from NYC I arrived at this property following an easy metro ride from the airport. Upon entering the property I could not have been happier, that is until I arrived at my room for the next 3 nights. The entire place is a facade. Looks great on the outside but the room was easily the worst...

Had a bit of difficulty finding the hotel. More my fault as I walked past it twice following a google map expected it to be round the corner, Entrance is flanked by a chocolate shop and swarkkosi? crystal shop. Location is very good on a busy shopping street with a wide variety of shops. And not too far to walk...
