We stayed at Carris Hotel Porto Ribeira for three nights and found the hotel to be in a great location, about a 3 minute walk to the Ribeira river front, Gaia area, and central Porto shopping. We requested a room with a view and Room #410 had a small window that opened up to the Ribeira section and river (see photos). The room, although VERY small, was quiet, clean, modern, and had comfortable bedding. The interior public spaces in the hotel are trendy and are a nice mix of old and modern. The breakfast was good and offered a nice variety and the staff was friendly, professional and efficient. We would stay here again.

Room tip: Room #410 was high enough to view the Ribeira area and water.

They paid a lot of attention to the common areas in the Carris, but boy did they skimp on the rooms. I measured a skimpy 14" between the foot of my bed and the wall. It was ridiculously tiny. I was leading a group tour and I can assure you, I will not be bringing my clients back to the Carris.

Room tip: Insist on a full sized room.

This hotel is located close to the river and is also near a lot of restaurants and bars. It has very friendly staff and excellent breakfasts.

The rooms are also very comfortable and trams to the beach are also near by.

Room tip: Ask for a room that looks towards the river.

We stayed at the Carris for 3 nights. We had two problems when we went to the hotel. Mr Garmin had the wrong address in, I had previously put in correct address, but thought Mr Garmin knew better. We ended up about 2 miles/5Km from the hotel on a street with a school. A Porto citizen was kind enough to point the way to the address.
We drove to Henrique which is where the hotel is located and turned the wrong way. On the way back we could not find the hotel. We went through a tunnel and asked a Brit how to get there. He said it was on the other side of the tunnel which we just came through. We finally located it but saw no parking. A cab driver said there was a parking garage 100 meters away. We found that an proceed to the 3rd sublevel and parked. We didn't find an elevator so we took 1 back pack, 2 carry-on's and a medium size checked luggage up the 3 stories of stairs. Needless to say, at 35 C and 70% humidity, we were rather hot. We finally checked in and got to our room.
Other people had said the rooms are small and noisy. With our luggage, we had to arrange it so we could get around. The room size was just tight but doabale. The room was on the street and we had a French Balcony which we could open and look out. It was a little noisy but nothing which hampered our sleep or bothered us. The location was nice except most of the sights are up hill from the river.
We ate breakfast there and it was adequate. The dining room didn't have any atmosphere. One thing - the elevator is slow and sometimes hard to get. We hit the stairs coming down since , we were up just one floor.

Very convenient location for river front. A modern hotel incorporating some ancient granite block walls - very skilfully done. Very clean & comfortable & staff extraordinarily helpful. Our room was on top floor overlooking the very busy Rua Henrique and hence did have some continual traffic noise. Buffet breakfast was well presented, varied, fresh - eat as much as you want. Would I book again? - definitely but I would request a quiet side room.

Room tip: Ask for a quiet room.
