This hotel is a very good choice for anyone wanting to stay in the city. Right in the middle of the main shopping street, close to attractions such as the Cathedral, yet a straightforward stroll down to the Douro. Might be a good idea to get the Funicular back up the hill, for less than 2 Euros, particularly if you have...

Nice and cosy old hotel. Lobby, living rooms, stairs and the ceiling at the top of the stairs deserve special attention. Standard rooms at the top floor are quiet, simple, not very large, but large enough. Very well located for shopping and visiting all possible Oporto's monuments. Near the subway - Bolhão -, which take you from airport, or Campanhã...

We deeply enjoyed the Grande Hotel and its past century athmosphere. We arrived late at night due to the delay of our flight, we were given a standard room, which we wanted to change the day after because our luggage was too big. The hotel staff agreed and upgraded us to a beautiful and large room with our private lobby...

Great location for looking around this beautiful city and shopping. Staff were excellent, beds comfortable. Wait staff in the restaurant and bar, very professional and attentive. Lounge and bar areas wonderfully quiet for a read or drink. Wifi very disappointing, you pay top $$ for inconsistent service. Can't get connection in the rooms, everyone stands out in the coridoor to...

My first trip to Porto for a business meeting. The hotel was centrally located and very close to the shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. The rooms were a little dark but had good bathrooms and were very clean. The restaurant served a good buffet style breakfast and lunch. The conference room we used was spacious but a little lacking in...

First time in Porto I found this hotel very inspiring and atmospherical....Part of the history of the city itself while at the same time -through the way its been rennovated and run- it gives you an authentic insight of the modern city: straightforward, energetic, with a tradition in modernistic design and architecture. Staying there was pleasant in all aspects, educating...

We were upgraded to a suite when we arrived, so our room was big and had a wonderful view and balconies onto the pedestrian shopping street below. The hotel itself is really lovely and thoughtfully renovated. Our room was simple and chic, and perfectly clean. The beds and chairs were a bit uncomfortable, but we didn't spend much time there...

The people of Porto were very warm and friendly. Excellent location of the hotel being in the centre of everything and a close walk to other attractions. Can't wait to visit again!

The hotel facade, the lobby and the breakfast room were beautiful and respected the history of the hotel. Our room was spacious, very clean and comfortable. There was no free wifi, which was a disappointment. Hotel is nicely located in the main shopping street close to a metro station, but not that close to the river Douro.
