Such a luxury!
This property is so close to things to do in Porto but far away enough that things are quiet. We had multiple drivers tell us that we picked a good area of town because other areas are under construction (August 2022). The staff here was outstanding and I would highly recommend anyone to stay here.

8/10 Very good

Unique place and kind staff, just felt a bit like it was lacking some warmth, but it’s because the vibe feels more trendy than homey. You can hear the water every time someone flushes the toilet but it’s not too bad. Definitely recommend if you want a cool spot to stay, but less so if you’re wanting charm.

10/10 Exceptional

The staff in hotel was super friendly and willing to solve all our concerns. We really appreciated free room upgrade. Breakfast was excellent and the view breathtaking. Unique design. Free valet parking. The only small issue was that it was not enough space in closet for two people. But overall experience was superb. Thank you!
