Short 3 day visit to Porto so decided to stay here given its central location. Walkable (although slightly uphill) to the main shopping street. Also close walk to Sao Bento rail, Balbao metro and main square for hop on-hop off bus tours. It's about a 10-minute downhill walk to the river/bridge and about a 1/2 hour walk across the river to the port cellars. We also walked from the beach back to the hotel which took about 4 hours (including lots of breaks/stops).
Hotel and room was clean, except no real view from our room. But we didn't mind as we spent most of the day out and about doing port tours and eating. As with other reviews, the hotel was dark as it kept to the 'Theatre' theme design.
Breakfast was included and tasty. Hot and cold selections, including champagne and Portugese tarts. Our stay also included a complimentary glass of local port.
Service was helpful as they suggested a nice restaurant for lunch upon our arrival near the beach (10 min taxi ride from hotel). Also provided a plaster for a cut and a power adapter/converter for phone charger when requested, free of charge.
All in all, for the price paid and its location, it's a nice place to stay.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Hotel Teatro arose from the spot where the Baquet Theatre was inaugurated in 1859. A hundred and fifty-one years later, the unique, refined and bohemian environment of the Theatre has been revived here in a hotel. The Reception represents a box office, where each guest receives a ticket to access their room. The Restaurant and Bar have become the new Palco and Plateia, offering creations for a discerning palate. The inner courtyard is a versatile garden or a quiet and secluded haven from the tumult of the city. The 74 comfortable rooms and suites are colored in gold and bronze, and the gym on the top floor transforms the Hotel into a true arena for action and relaxation. ... more less
