Diogo Leite is not in a neighborhood, it's the main street along the river in Gaia - though it could become dangerous around tea time when the drunken Brit dowagers pour out of the port lodges.

Just got back from Porto. I recommend a stay in Porto along the river or as close to it as you can. Porto is a fantastic city and is very beautiful. Be prepared for a lot of uphill walking. Along the river is fun, touristy, and beautiful.

If you wish to stay in the historical area of Porto, near the river, you will find the following hotels:

pestana.com/pt/…home.aspx 4*

carrishoteles.com/pt/hoteis/porto/hotel-carr… 4*

In Gaia, across the river, you also have the Yeatman Hotel http://www.the-yeatman-hotel.com/pt/ 5* but is not on the river bank.

Downtown, near the commercial area, at about 1 kilometer from the river, there are plenty of hotels. Here are a few depending on the category you´re searching:
