We only stayed one night, however almost changed our travel plans so we could enjoy the Palacio Do Freixo for longer. The hotel is a short distance from the city centre, but is in a lovely position on the river and we enjoyed the 20 minute walk to the old city. The taxi drive was also easy and the drivers helpful on both occasions we took a taxi. The staff were welcoming and helpful and the Palacio itself is divine with large well equipped guest rooms. The only thing at all letting the Palacio down is the wifi Internet service which is less than easy to connect and reconnect to. We had this experience in all the Pousadas we stayed at in Portugal - the outsourced service provider needs to improve!
