    Superb

    The hotel has an excellent location and very attentive and responsive staff. Always professional and ready to help or recommend places to see or places to eat. The hotel is a little dated but still has that "charm" and was an excellent choice for someone who wants to visit the port caves or just relax for the weekend. The buffet breakfast was excellent. I did not eat other meals at the hotel but the menu's looked extremely good. I would recommend this hotel to all my friends traveling to Porto.

    Exceptional

    The hotel is in the great location, looks absolutely lovely from the inside, the staff are very friendly and helpful - spot on.

    The only thing we didn't like is that they're charging for the wireless internet 2 Euro/hr.

    Great location as in the middle of shopping areas; but not so much for restaurants or to the riverside. Very good breakfast.

    Location only

    Hotel doesn't deserve to call itself "Grand". The rooms represent an attempt of the cheapest renovation of apparently historic building. The result is disastrous. Squeaking floors are covered by cheap synthetic carpet. Air conditioner was barely blowing. There was no cold water in the morning for an hour, only the hot one. The staff was trying to save the face, the impossible task.

    Superb

    The room was spacious and comfortable with a fresh contemporary decor. The lobby, salon, bar and dining room were also wonderfully restored spaces. A very comfortable hotel in a great location right in the middle of the main shopping street. A very good value for money hotel that didn't charge for an extra bed for our child.

    Exceptional

    I loved the lobby and lounges on the first floor. The dining room food was excellent and the service was excellent. Terrace on roof lovely. Location fantastic.

    Rooms small, but overall I was very happy with the place.

    Guest rating

    Elegant and very interesting public areas that recall a grand past, especially the magnificent breakfast room and intimate bar, a really nice staff, a generous and comfortable room with traditional elegance - in my case a full suite. I also loved the mirrors, which were huge and true. On a lively street, which though full of tourists has some major sites of its own, including a landmark historic cafe and a magnificent tiled chapel, and is an easy walk to other parts of the city. I loved this hotel and would stay there again.

    As an old building, the room needed more electrical plugs as charging phone or computer and keeping the lights on was a bit of a challenge. And, if you're there in the daytime, the room is dark, but I didn't care as I was out all day, and I don't know why anyone would be in a city like Porto. Dining room open only for breakfast.

    Almost everything except rooms a little too small. But for the price I must say very good value

    The hotel has very good location, on a pedestrian street, close to shopping area but a bit far from the river side Ribeira (about 5-7 minutes by taxi and 20- 25 min on foot). Good budget hotel, do not expect anything extra.

    The room was small and worn-out but clean. The conditioner was located on the level of the bed and was blowing to the face, the bed and the pillows were also old and not comfortable.

    Fabulous

    Fantastic location, really hip bar, library and diingroom (all newly rennovated). Breakfast is excellent. Rooms are very compact and contrary to claim NOT all have Internet acres (even if they do it is 10euro.

    Very good

    Very good position in one of the main shopping streets of Porto. It's a good starting pojunt for visiting the city.The atmosphere of the hotel is special (just give a look to the main spaces, the main room and the bar zone); it's not a "grand hotel" but a quite good three stars hotel.

    At my arrival, the girl at the reception wasn't too kind and a little bit nervous or something. That' not very good for such an hotel...
