“Fun hotel in a great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2011

This hotel is very centrally located for a visit to Porto. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We ate in the restaurtant one night -- great setting, wonderful service, and authentic Portugese cuisine. The hotel is a bit on the dark side, even for one who doesn't like things too bright. And the rooms are wonderful, but a bit minimalist. A little art wouldn't kill them! For the price, I would definitely recommend it. And I would strongly advise people to stay on this side of the river.

We really enjoyed this hotel - the rooms aren't that dark (once you figure out how to turn on all the lights) though light was at a premium in the hallways. Design is the focus, as mentioned by others, there are curtains instead of doors for most things (there is actually a glass door between the toilet and the rest of the bathroom). And the tub is worth seeing from the entire room - the way it is enclosed in glass is unique and beautiful. However, they should have angled the top a bit, because the entire thing floods when using the rain showerhead. So please remember not to leave anything on the glass edge while showering!
They might be trying a bit too hard, but it is worth going, and definitely an experience.

Even if you aren't in to design, it is still a good hotel. The staff was nice and helpful - They provided a complimentary glass of port when we checked in, and the bar has great atmosphere and a decent menu. The location is nice and reasonably central - driving there wasn't an issue. Their valet was 10E with the car parked in the building, and Internet was free.

If you are the type of traveler that enjoys unique hotels, then the Teatro Hotel is for you. The hotel's interior is unique and very comfortable. The restaurant and bar in the hotel are perfect for relaxing after taking in all that Oporto has to offer. The restaurant offers a variety of selections for the picky eater and is quite reasonable priced.

The room was very comfortable. Perhaps the one thing that stood out to my wife and I was the quality and power of the shower. It was the one thing that kept us going on our super-power tour of Oporto. The room was extremely clean and well kept. We joked that we must have been the first occupants of our room.

Now, if everything about the horrible, I would still rate this hotel a five based on the staff. The staff was out of this world. From the cleaning staff to the front desk to the bartender, everyone we encountered greeted us and act genuinely concerned about 1. Our stay at the hotel and 2. our visit to Oporto. My wife and I are very low maintenance travelers and often try to figure things out on our own, the staff was having none of that....they want you to fall in love Oporto not just visit.

The only thing we did not like was the front door to the place.

This is a super hotel for atmosphere - very dramatic! i stayed for a friends wedding in July and they were smashing - very helpful and kind. I had an in- room massage which was very good and I love the free smellies in the gold bathroom. Breakfast good with loads of fruit and eggs, coffee ok. Nice area and close to old teashop and lots of fabric and jewellery stores - bliss!

Room Tip: Ask for the best -lit room, unless you like gloom! It all adds to the ambience.

The concept is very modern and I found the subdued lighting downstairs attractive. The foyer seats were splendid and the reception staff were truly wonderful. They were always smiling and did all they could to be helpful. The location is good right in the old town and near the river. The problems are in the bedrooms. The designs are attractive and modern but this is at the expense of function. The rooms are dark, certainly too dark for men to shave properly and women to make up. There are no plugs in the basins so washing and shaving are done under running water. The wonderful shower is in a glass walled room as is the separate lavatory. If therefore you would rather that your partner did not watch you sitting on the toilet and wiping your bottom this may not be the hotel for you. Very few have curtains in front but they are difficult to obtain.

Room Tip: Our room 505 had a curtain in front of the loo which we got after 3 choices of rooms. It was on the...

In the heart of Oporto, two steps from Avenida dos Aliados, this hotel offers a very unique decoration inspired by the old Theaters. Nini Andrade is the interior designer and as usual she surprise us with incredible details such as the seat in the lobby and the bath tub in the bedroom. Good services, good breakfast.

Loved this hotel - so different from the usual - subdued lighting that added to the atmosphere. Friendly helpful staff that were only too happy to recommend a restuarant or direct you somewhere. Fresh buffet breakfast which was constantly replenished.Comfortable,cosy beds and a fabulous rainforest shower. The only drawback for ladies is that you could do with maybe a make up mirror light. But all in all we couldn't fault it.

The Hotel Teatro arose from the spot where the Baquet Theatre was inaugurated in 1859. A hundred and fifty-one years later, the unique, refined and bohemian environment of the Theatre has been revived here in a hotel. The Reception represents a box office, where each guest receives a ticket to access their room. The Restaurant and Bar have become the new Palco and Plateia, offering creations for a discerning palate. The inner courtyard is a versatile garden or a quiet and secluded haven from the tumult of the city. The 74 comfortable rooms and suites are colored in gold and bronze, and the gym on the top floor transforms the Hotel into a true arena for action and relaxation. ... more   less
