                              amazing building and really interesting common areas. Very grandiose bar and restaurant. Rooms were very spacious, comfortable and quiet.

                              If your bedroom is not facing the river then the view is generally poor, looking out onto a factory wall/chimney.

                              You feel like you are staying in a palace it is very grand and beautiful yet you feel so at home and relaxed. The views from the pool area of the river are heavenly. It is a 2.5 kilometre beautiful walk by the river into the centre of town.

                              The massage was not good at all and the lack of a water tap or water near the sauna and steam and gym is something that should be rectified.

                              The pousada, linens and beds, steam room and sauna. Reataurant was quite nice, Great breakfast. The view of the river and gardens was wonderful. Very guite hotel, no noise in rooms. The rooms and baths were very large for Europe. Shower was excellent.

                              We did not have robes in our room so going to sauna area was awkward. Called to complain and were told not enough robes for the 4th floor. Hotel hard to find as gps directions take you in the old entrance which is blocked off. The new entrance is very poorly marked. Need more massueses as were a group of 4 and had to wait in line for massage.

                              Fabulous facilities, staff and surroundings.

                              Drinks in bar at night expensive.

                              Room was very clean and comfortable to stay. And the palace was refurbished nicely so it was also enjoyable.

                              Most Hotel staff were very young and seemed haven't been well trained. While we had breakfast, they continued talking with each other and they did not bring coffee and tea until we asked, for example. I felt it was "mottainai" because they had potentially good facilities and many young staff there.

                              Nice location, great interior. Too much staff as internships in stead of well educated personnel. In spite of late start 19.30 hrs with our young kid 2 1/2 years no possibility for somewhat speeding up the diner. With three tables occupied in the dining room we had to wait 15 min. for the coffee/bica after dinner.

                              Wonderful building, large comfortable rooms, overlooking the river Douro. Perfect if you want to just stay in a relax, but close enough to the city centre if you want to see the sights, go shopping or dine out,

                              We had the most enjoyable 2 days and nights in this amazing Pousada. It is a beautiful old building that has been totally restored with great care to retain its historic feeling while being a completely modern and absolutely luxurious facility. It is a complete resort, not just a hotel. The outside pool area overlooks the river and is an amazing place to swim and relax. Our room was spacious and could not have been more pleasant. Make sure you get a room overlooking the river. The view is worth the extra cost. It is an easy walk or bicycle ride along the river into the old town. The staff were wonderful. The food was excellent. We have nothing but good feelings about our stay there and cannot imagine a nicer place to stay in Porto..

                              The first impression when entering the site is somewhat off putting because the adjoining building is in poor condition and the Pousada can't be seen at first. But once inside, the impression quickly changes. The whole place is absolutely wonderful and we could not suggest anything to improve it.

                              The location is just outside Porto , very easy to drive to and take trips into the city by cab. The Pousada is a step back in time to the golden age of old Europe, the rooms are execption with great views of the sity and courtyard. Hope to be back soon.

                              We stayed there as a family of five and felt totally welcome as we indulged in little bit of luxury.

                              Gorgeous hotel and gardens, very nice staff and restaurant food good. Children's meals free with adults which made for better value.

                              No tea/coffee facilities in room and charged €11.50 for 2 teas which was extortionate.
