Lovely historical gem
The hotel is an absolute historical gem. The architectural features are wonderful and everything was spotlessly clean. The street is noisy at rush hour traffic, but The Rex is comfortable and only 15 minutes walk from busses and underground.

This is a really nice old character hotel.Its got really high ceilings, ornate plaster work and lovely tiles.Our room was huge and even had a room sized terrace but oddly no out door furniture to use.Breakfast was fresh and tasty but with a fairly limited choice. The hotel is a little way out of town about a 15 minute walk down a steep hill to the main square and train station.while this might seem like a disadvantage it means you go by dozens of local bars that you wouldnt even know were there. Its also handy for the airport as its about 8 or 10 minutes to either lapa or trinadade metro stations which go directly to the airport.

Comfy beds, good wifi, good showers and a really friendly face in Jorge at the desk. Price was very reasonable too and the only minor issue I had is it is a little way from the river and the cool and interesting area. A very minor issue as it is a stimulating and interesting walk back of 1.5 km which helps digest all that fabulous food to be found in Porto.

Old world charm
Lovely little hotel in a very convenient location. Room was big and updated, the old details are very charming. The hotel is very basic but the service was great and the location very convenient. The ceilings are to die for - lots of Instagram worthy pics!
