Located in the heart of the Ribeira, a World Heritage Site, with a window on the Douro River, in a historic building dating back to the seventeenth century, is the Porto River! Has 16 rooms, which bring together history and comfort in a fusion of authenticity and modernity. Acess by car is limited, please contact the reception for further details. We don’t have our own car park, our suggestion is to arrive “Cais da Ribeira ( Ribeira Quay)” between 06.30AM and 11AM so you can park very close to the hotel and store your luggage with us, also we can give you the instructions for the car park.

We stayed here on our honeymoon during our first time in Portugal. We found such a great deal on Expedia with the river view room which was 100% worth it. We also chose to include breakfast which had eggs, bacon and pancakes made to order with fruit, pastries ect. The breakfast

Amazing location on the riverfront with a memorable view of Dom Luis Bridge and Gaia from our 2 bedroom apartment in the adjacent building (Apartment 1). Spacious and cosy flat with bedrooms at the back which was very quiet and 2 bathrooms which was perfect for a family of 4.

We were there in summer and used the air conditioner to cool but I’m sure it was also a heater too for the winter. There were two units- one in the bedroom and one in the living area. I’m sure you’ll be warm and cozy. You’ll love this hotel.

What are the the transportation options to reach the hotel from the airport? We arrive in the morning.
You can get a metro from porto airport...you need to buy a zone 4 andante ticket...to either trindade where you can get a bus (900, 906 or 901) to Ribera bus stop (about 120 meters from hotel)...you can use the same andante ticket within the hour...or change at trindade station for Sao Bento metro...and walk downhill via rua da flores (takes about 7 minutes). There is a bus from the airport i think but it takes a lot longer. There are taxis at the airport if you want to go large...which will drop off about 20 metres from hotel.

I took train into Porto from Coimbra. It is the sao bento station in Porto. I walked to the hotel from the station. In the rain. It’s a steep climb down but was manageable. Head to riberia and if u can’t see the hotel ask the tour operators on the waterfront. One of the boat cruise operators pointed me to the hotel. It wasn’t too hard to find.

"River view rooms! Apartment 1 is ground floor in the adjacent building has 2 bedrooms at the back and 2 bathrooms"
"All is well as long as you can stand the tourists outside"
"Take a room at one of the top floors, as these must be more quiet - especially in the season."
"Ensure you choose river view."
"River facing rooms have a great view but rooms at the back will be quieter."
