PortoBay Hotels & Resorts has acquired the Hotel Teatro, which will now be called PortoBay Hotel Teatro and marks the entry of the hotel group into the city of Porto. It is located in the historic centre of the city, on Rua Sá da Bandeira, a few steps from the city’s main attractions including São Bento Station, Clérigos Tower, Porto Cathedral, Avenida dos Aliados, Lello Bookshop, Bolhão Market and the well-known Cais da Ribeira, the Douro riverfront. The hotel was built on the site of the former Baquet Theatre, opened in 1859. Today, the theatrical theme is very much in evidence with the hotel’s unique, refined and bohemian atmosphere. The 74 spacious rooms, divided into 5 categories, offer a contemporary, individual and comfortable feel. The hotel also has a restaurant, bar, small gym and meeting space. The new group hotel will remain in operation while some adjustments are carried out to bring the product more into line with the PortoBay Hotels & Resorts brand.

This hotel is in a fabulous location making everything easy to get to. The welcome at reception was warm. The room was disappointing, I love soft lighting but this is too dark. The shower leaks so much that all towels are required to ensure the room isn't flooded. For a 4 star

I am a bit claustrophobic.... Managed ok over the 5day stay , corridors a bit befuddling initially but the Mr has a good sense of direction so I was ok ! It's actually quite restful and calming after a day exploring in the sun . It's certainly a bit different . GIve it a go .
