The staff, the historical building - the palace, along with the service and the amenities of this Pousada is truly a unique experience. We recommend anyone to plan a stay here if visiting Porto. Our teenage son was travelling with us and the room was prepared and easily accommodated all of us. The pool/sauna area were well maintained and esthetically pleasing. The restaurant meals were excellent and the service unbelievable. The common rooms were palatial and special, as was the view of the river. The only suggestion I would make is to run the free shuttle into Porto more frequently.

I find it hard to think of any ways this place could be improved. Great value, the staff are outstanding, but probably he best thing is just that you feel as if you are in a palace. Oh you are (see name). 25 euro cab fare from airport. 20-30 euros for the nicest bottle of wine you can imagine. A gym with a great view over the river from a treadmill.
Ok i htought of something, after waking in my comfortable bed, I wished I had facilities to make a cup of tea. But then I went to breakfast for a splendid buffet and endless coffee. Congratulations to all in this company.

Located right on the river, this facility is outstanding. The hotel is beautifully maintained and clean as a whistle. The rooms are large and very well appointed with views overlooking the Douro River.
The breakfasts are absolutely first rate and the service is second to none. The staff go above and beyond to make you feel like royalty. The Freixo truly is a palace and only 15 minutes from the airport.

This hotel offers an amazing blend of state-of-the-art business hotel and an architectural monument combining industrial architecture and historic chique of a castle right at the Porto River. Hotel staff was very friendly - make sure not to miss the welcome Porto - and Hotel Restaurant offered excellent food. Make sure to book a room in the upper floor, as the view on the river is amazing.

stayed here for 4 nights in early January. The place is split in to two parts.
The old house with the reception bar and restaurant. With the bedrooms in the building next joined by a covered walk way.

Can nott fault the food or the rooms. The staff were great and nothing was too much trouble.
