    Great hotel but late breakfast

    Nice hotel, quiet location but near to the river and great places to eat and drink. Very well furnished and as appears in the photographs. The only negative is that breakfast begins on a weekday at 07:30. For business guests or those catching early flights this is quite late.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Location is in a narrow pedestrian streetoff the main tourist square Ribeira Square where many bars and restaurants are also located and other sights are within walking distance.A boutique hotel with a calming ambiance plenty of space for sitting and relaxing on the landings within an atrium feature thoughtfully designed and furnished below a roof light. Only 18 rooms good size, comfortable large bed, window seat, tea making facilities, tv, wardrobe with small safe, nice large walk in rain shower. Good breakfast with plenty of choice on the mezzanine overlooking reception area, friendly and helpful staff. The only issue not the fault of the hotel was large plastic sheet flapping over washing hanging outside the neighbours property within the rear light well .Otherwise quiet stay. Recommend and would stay again.
