Hotel is in a really nice location but a little out of Porto. Nice restaurants close by. Breakfast is basic but good. Room 222 was quiet and out of way. I tried 3 other rooms But they were noisy. The restaurant is also fine but nothing to write home about. Quick and easy with great service!! The charm of hotel...

Choose a front room and enjoy the views over the sea and mouth of the River Douro. Try for one of the larger rooms with a balcony! This hotel is excellently placed for the beautiful coastal walks from Foz and the riverside promenade into the town of Porto (or take the Number One vintage tram if you prefer). The roof...

Excellent room and bathroom with good toiletries. Our room had a king size bed with good pillows and duvets. The bar on the top floor had a nice view of the ocean and is very nice to relax with a glass of wine. Expect affordable and basic service here. The best part of the bar are the timings. It is...

Excellent value, well appointed rooms, excellent position for exploring the city, hop on and off buses with commentary for 10€. Bus stop about 3mins walk. 20 mins from Porto Airport, 20€ taxi. Hotel cleanliness superb. Free Wi-fi in all rooms. Breakfast very good and food in hotel restaurant very good, but suggest you book as it's not very big.

It's hard to complain about this hotel because it's such amazing value for money. My double room for single occupancy with mini bar, bathroom, fantastic wifi, gym and pool and breakfast (which, dear reader, I shall return to shortly) was €64 per night. It's quite incredible. I was here for a conference at the university and, sadly, not a vacation....

I was received at the front desk as i was an unwanted person that did not belong there(and I have staid there other times). Very rude attitude from the staff.

We stayed at Hotel Boa-Vista in June. Our room was located on one of the higher floors and our view was quite lovely. Breakfast was delicious and the view from the lovely rooftop bar/restaurant was great. The view from this hotel is great from the higher floors. You can see the Douro River meeting the Atlantic Ocean. For a small...

After spending a few days roughing it camping out in the wilds it was a very welcome moment. The hotel is well placed right down overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the old fort. The staff were very pleasant and spoke both English and French. The room was perfect, mini bar full, bathroom well equipped and very comfy beds. Swimming pool...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Boa-Vista reserves for you the privilege of being the only Hotel in Foz, the noble part of the city, where the Douro river meets the Atlantic ocean. Here you are far away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to everything.The Historic Centre can be quickly reached along the waterfront, offering views of the natural beauty of the river and its imposing bridges.When returning to Foz, you can enjoy the walk between the river and the sea, cross the romantic Passeio Alegre garden and admire the 16th century architecture of S. Joao Fort, just across from the hotel. After the piers and lighthouses at the Douro’s bar, the sophisticated atmosphere of the modern outdoor cafes overlooking the sea is well worth a visit. ... more   less
