Profile: Ribeira

Profile: Ribeira

Ribeira, on the south side of central Porto, rests along the Douro River—where the waterfront row of Cais da Ribeira is always alive, lined with shaded outdoor restaurants and cafés.

On one side of Cais da Ribeira, you’ll find Ribeira Square, a popular gathering spot and a great place to grab a drink and people-watch. On the other, you’ll find the awe-inspiring Dom Luis I Bridge—built by Teophile Seyrig in a style reminiscent of his associate Gustave Eiffel, architect behind the Eiffel Tower—overlooking both sides of the river with astounding panoramic views.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Service is excellent, staff will provide you a map and recommend places for you to go. I like the room a lot, stylish with super comfy bed and nice detail of decoration. It’s near the riverside with good views. Little surprise from the fridge and unlimited water provided. Free breakfast in the morning is so delicious as well with nice choices and beverages! The only downside is it’s located down the slope, will have to walk up the slope everyday to go to different tourist spots. But I am willing to do that with such good service and views. Be prepared to take taxi/uber from and to airport (it’s not near metro) which is not too expensive, may drop you off at SPAR (supermarket in a few minutes walk) up the slope as cars usually cant go down because it’s too crowded. Overall, it’s one of the best stay I had!!

    Our long weekend stay at Gran cruz house was blissful. The rooms are impeccable and the decoration is so beautiful and unique. It is truly a gem in Porto. The staff at the front desk were exceptional - the help they gave in planning the weekend was so helpful and we followed each piece of advice. The morning breakfast was really good - sitting on the balcony in the sun was so nice each morning. Only downside would be that the shower was not that good - the cubicle was quite small for my tall husband and the power was not great. However, this will not stop me visiting Gran Cruz again in the future!

    Just perfect.

    We spent 25 days traveling through Europe and no hotel stay compared to this one. The room itself had the most gourgous view. The room itself was just beautiful and flawless. The staff was so kind as well. A free bottle of Porto wine was included with our room. When was asked about the taste, the attendant gave a free tasting of different wines. The hotel itself is part of a winery. I only wish we could have spend more time here. We are definitely coming back.

    Great stay, but sleepless nights

    The hotel is very cute and clean, and the staff was welcoming and very helpful in providing suggestions for our stay. The breakfast was lovely and overlooking the water. It is right on the water and in a great location for accessing the city, but it is also located right on a main square which means we could hear the music downstairs playing until 2am. We tried using a noise machine, but it didn't cancel out the bass. So, if you are a night owl, this is a great place for you! Everything, other than the sleepless nights, was perfect.
