Set in quiet area but walking distance of the city centre. Good food with some excellent local restaurants nearby - good spot with nice views down the river and across to villa de gaia - tram runs right outside the front door (literally) but is quiet and causes no problems rooms a comfortable and clean. Hotel staff excellent and friendly.

A pretty good stay, overall
We liked the hotel well enough. The staff was excellent and super friendly. Breakfast was pretty good and we ate in the restaurant one night and the food was good. I was surprised the shower had a bath gel/shampoo-only option with no other amenities. It seemed limited for a 4 STAR. I understand that the idea is to be eco-friendly - but there was hand soap in a pump at the sink and the shower soap was also the shampoo that made our hair sticky. There are better, eco-friendly options that we have seen where the products are in different containers and of better quality. We also did not like that door to the toilet is glass and does not extend to the ceiling. This leaves the toilet open to the room ( there is no door to the bathroom area) and does not offer much privacy if you are traveling with someone. The beds were single beds that were pushed together. The window opened to the courtyard below. The antique trolley option was helpful with all the walking and was located minutes from the Hotel. Again, the staff was really nice.

Nice finish to Portugal
Nice, quiet stay with a quality breakfast. Walkable to the main Ribeira, with transport options readily available if 15 mins are too much. Nice big room, but no separate bathroom (WC and shower directly accessible from main room, with exposed bathroom sink).
