We were placed on the 9th floor, view from room was fantastic. Wake up and look right across Porto down to the Douro River (Including early morning mist) The breakfast was fantastic, everything you could possibly want, from hot bacon and eggs to cold buffet, brilliant. The staff were very friendly and attentive. We were quite lucky because the Hotel wasn't particularly busy, probably to do with the virus. The Hotel is a little bit out of the way, so liking a walk is essential. On a positive note, the Hotel was spotlessly clean in all the public areas and the rooms.
It took about 3/4 of an hour to get right down to the hustle and bustle of the old town. .
Once there it was well worth the walk. All the favourite Port Houses are there, Sandeman, Taylors etc. The bridge crossing the river is stunning, with bars and restaurants clustered beneath it. We had three fantastic days in Porto and then travelled by train down to Lisbon.
