Great location near trams and buses. Adequate yet confusing breakfast. Limited staffing for the restaurant but a couple of good alternatives nearby. We did have a river view, however the window was small and high. The room could benefit my hanging a bar table and chairs. No Kleenex to be had for n the room. A pet peeve of mine.

The tram into Porto ran right in front of the hotel. Not much action at the hotel itself but some options adjacent to it.

The Douro River
This hotel was nicely located by the river, not too far from downtown and the beach. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food options were fresh and well prepared. The morning breakfast buffet was excellent! The room was very basic with few amenities but it was clean and the beds were comfortable.
