This is a great hotel - close to the Metro, beautiful views from the room (we stayed in room 141 in the tower), an adorable cat who hangs around the property, beautiful decor, decent breakfast and friendly staff. I subtracted one star because the bed in our room was uncomfortably small and the room had no safe. Overall, though, this...

An historic and very ornate hotel. The furnishings are antique throughout the hotel. Convenient to the metro or walking to town - would probably want to take the metro back as it is all up hill. Parking available.

We enjoyed the people, who were wonderful, and the view from our room was excellent. The castle is loaded with period furniture, and the tile work outside is spectacular. We also greatly appreciated having parking for our car. In addition, the breakfast was perfectly adequate, although we are not fans of vending machine-style coffee. On the downside, we were on...

We had a wonderful few days in Porto all made the easier by the helpfulness of the staff at the hotel giving advice over transport, places to go etc. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We stayed in the beautiful older part of the hotel, very comfy bed, excellent bed linen. Breakfast was very good. Location very central but...

We had our room in the tower and loved the historic ambiente and the city view. It's a truly historic place with fabric tapestry, wooden ceiling, crystal and 19th century furniture, lovely! The bed was comfortable and the breakfast good, in a wonderful setting. Easy walking distance to the center, for the uphill way back we took a taxi. Can...

This hotel is truly unique. It is built around an old house/castelo and an open courtyard with pretty gardens, a small chapel and tiles. It feels very Portuguese! There are two layers of modern rooms around the courtyard; we stayed in these rooms...which were quieter and cleaner/less musty than what you generally find in older constructions. There are "period" rooms...

Beautiful castle, where we enjoyed total silence from the noise of the town, with kind employees and a rich breakfast! Wifi doesn't work good inside rooms and room service is only for drinks but those 2 things didn't bothered us for having a great staying at the castello. So clean, also animal friendly and great gardens!

What a beautiful place to stay overnight. The room we had was beautiful, big and with great antiques. Beautiful bathroom. The rest of the castle is wonderful, the breakfast room and other rooms! very special. It is an old building of course, so bring along your white noise, because you will need it. We had room 108 (so is also...

“For the historical section, get a first or second floor room. Others may be happier in the modern section.”

“There isn't a lift. If you have mobility issues ask for the lower floor or rooms in the new part.”

“the modern rooms are quiet and clean, simply furnished in an ikea design, so some might prefer the "period" rooms in the castelo.”
