We chose Hotel Teatro mostly for its name as we are both theatre fans. The theme is nicely incorporated with the neat touches of costume rails in reception, lots of full length curtains everywhere and subdued lighting throughout. Our room was elegant with a comfortable bed and a great shower. Most nights were very quiet with practically no street noise - one evening did suffer from a party bus parked outside for several hours but there was nothing the hotel could do to move them on.
We appreciated the pair of umbrellas in the wardrobe and used them extensively through our stay. However, one day we did still get absolutely drenched and then realised that there was nowhere in the room to dry clothing - no radiators, not even a towel rail. So we had damp clothing hanging around for a couple of days until the aircon could dry it all out.
The breakfast is good with a fair amount of choice. On two of the four days, we had to sit around waiting for tables to become available though because the dining area is far too small to cope with the number of guests in the hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful though, even under these obviously stressful circumstances. The bar is comfortable with huge sofas and a plasma screen showing concerts every evening. We caught an interesting fado performance one evening whilst sipping a few ports.
Overall a good hotel and I would probably use it again if ever back in Porto.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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
