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...

We stayed in the Castelo de Santa Caterina during our stay in Porto and could not reccomend it any more. The hotel/castle is beautiful and quiet. The staff is friendly,courteous and helpful. Our room was mordern,clean and well kept. The bed was divine to sleep on and large as well. The location is close to a metro which makes arriving...

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...

The hotel was a great choice. The best bits: definitely the breakfast, the choice was excellent with a variety of fresh bread, pastries and cakes every day, as well as hot food, fruit and cereal all served in a beautiful common room. The staff were very helpful and attentive at all times, I could have absolutely no complaints at all...

It really was a castle, or at least the mansion of a noble family. Filled with antiques and wonderful appointments, it surpassed all our expectations. (Of course we stayed in the castle and not in the new section.) The location is great and enabled us to walk to all the major sites. The staff was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. The...

Great experience not far from downtown Oporto. My friend and I stayed at the Castle. We had a lovely room ground level, old style furniture and a very modern bathroom and the best quality linen ever. The gardens are amazing as well as all the living rooms in the Castle where a great breakfast is served.

Ok, how do you balance a very good breakfast with a mediocre room? I guess three stars should balance and sum up the experience. The room was shabby, no better way putting this. This is an old place and it shows, furniture that saw better days when my grandma was born, the beds were not comfortable and the experience was...

Attentive hosts in this fascinating and beautiful building, so charmingly furnished. Our room, in the upper floor of the tower was small, but had a great ambiance, and a splendid chandelier ! There is no lift, but, if you do not mind the considerable climb, will enjoy the views. The breakfast and drawing rooms well demonstrate the opulence of the...

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