We wanted to stay outside of Porto as we were driving, so picked this & it was perfect. Beautiful old palace well preserved & right on the river. The rooms are in an old 19th factory bldg next door...sounds strange, but works beautifully! Pool, spa, very chic & trendy right beside the 17th century fountain & gardens. The restaurant & lounges are in the gorgeous old palace. Staff delightful. Great dinner recommendations, plenty of parking & easy to get a taxi into old Porto. This was a favorite....****
