This hotel is well situated outside the city centre but with tram and buses on its doorstep. The rooms are clean and tidy with all amenities. The service is friendly (especially in the bar at the top) and the bonus is to be able to park the car in the underground car park at the back. It is a tight...

A well-established hotel at the mouth of the estuary of the Douro River/Atlantic Ocean and very close to the lovely city of Porto. The vintage tram to the city centre is only a 10 minute walk away. The hotel has comfortable modern rooms, a rooftop bar, restaurant and swimming pool, and serves a good buffet breakfast. There is also a...

My checkout was at 3 am as I had a 6 am flight. Taxis are available all the time and the hotel staff can be requested to help you get...

We loved the location of this hotel, across the road from the beaches, and also on the bus and tram route into the city centre. There are lots of lovely restaurants local to the hotel too. The hotel itself is very clean,a little old fashioned and the staff are very welcoming and helpful.

Very good value for money. The hotel is clean and unpretentious. Well located, across the road to the beach promenade and the center of Foz. The breakfast is somewhat frugal. We missed a good Capuccino and/or an Nespresso Nice rooftop pool.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Boa-Vista reserves for you the privilege of being the only Hotel in Foz, the noble part of the city, where the Douro river meets the Atlantic ocean. Here you are far away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to everything.The Historic Centre can be quickly reached along the waterfront, offering views of the natural beauty of the river and its imposing bridges.When returning to Foz, you can enjoy the walk between the river and the sea, cross the romantic Passeio Alegre garden and admire the 16th century architecture of S. Joao Fort, just across from the hotel. After the piers and lighthouses at the Douro’s bar, the sophisticated atmosphere of the modern outdoor cafes overlooking the sea is well worth a visit. ... more   less
