The reception rooms in the palace are stunning it is like staying in a national trust mansion. The bedrooms in the annex were of a good size and very clean. The included breakfast catered for all nationalities and I found the staff very attentive. The infinity swimming pool and indoor swimming pool was a real bonus. The hotel is about 3km from the centre of Oporto and can easily be walked in approx. 45 minutes along the wide pavement; we found it quite safe as there are many fishermen and walkers along it. A taxi is approx. 6 euros to Ribeira. The Blue tourist Bus has a stop just outside the hotel gate which was very useful as a 2 day hop on and off pass is 15 euros. We would definitely recommend this hotel.
