“Great Hotel and Restaurant”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

Very nice hotel. Good location. Near to the river and the famous Luis I bridge. Villa Nova de Gaia within walking distance and a nice place to try port ( Vinologia ) across the street. The rooms are clean, quiet and have a great shower. In contrast to many other hotels this has a very good restaurant!

Excellent service; very nice and clean room; big breakfast buffé; the very best location for our purpose; discount at the nearby located P-house was good news for us. There are many nice restaurants and bars in the neighborhood.
Walking distance to many historic landmarks. This hotel offers good value gor money.

The Carris Ribeira hotel has a modern interior and includes a restaurant (reservation recommended), it's own gym with 24hrs access and has a variety of different hotel rooms in the buildings that have been joined by small indoor bridges. I had a very clean and simply decorated room with AC on the 1st floor, size-wise in the lower range. But it did include a balcony.
The staff at reception know what they're doing and like to help. They're not as overly friendly and ever-smiling as reception staff in comparable hotels in other cities might be, but that's just because it's Porto. They will always help.
This hotel is one street away of the Ribeira (river side) where you find plenty of restaurants and a good crowd during the nights. You can get to Vila Nova de Gaia across the Dom Luíz I bridge in 5 minutes and to the train station Porto São Bento in 10 minutes.

I enjoyed my stay here, its location makes it a perfect starting point for sight seeing, Douro river tours, port wine tasting on the other side of the river and for night life.

The location is perfect. Easy to get to the historical section of Porto, the Hop-on Hop-off buses, the trolley cars, the Port Houses. It's one block off the river which has a nice walking path alongside. Excellent restaurants & pubs within walking. ATM's located a few doors down the street. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms very modern, clean and comfortable. We were thrilled to find english TV.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the backside towards the river for a quieter time.

Good central location, not the hotel's fault there were extensive roadworks going on outside, parking nearbye, taxis right opposite, bus tour stop nearbye too. All good, check in - dreadful, unprofessional, poor. Had to ask everything, even to be shown to the room, which was just as well as it was in to one lift, round a corner , up some stairs into another lift and at the end of a long corridor. Room good, spacious, comfortable, loads of storage space, good bathroom and super shower,BUT, drilling going on in adjoining property right outside our window. When we finally found our way back to the reception we had a change of shift and the senior guy on there was most helpful and offered us another room, which was somewhat smaller so we stuck with what we had as he assured us the drilling would stop after 7pm - he was correct and all was well, very comfortable bed and loads of space, but such a hike to get out of there. Wifi issue didn't,t bother us too much, we probably bothered the guy on reception more with our calls for the new passwords. Breakfast was terrific, and to our surprise we found our way to the restaurant with ease. Above mentioned senior guy on reception very helpful, told us where and where not to go in Porto and recommended us a superb restaurant a little out of town which really did make our stay in Porto so memorable. all in all would recommend this hotel, due to its central location.

When we reserved we had asked for a room with a large bed but upon arrival they tried to give us a room with a twin bed. Only after insisting we finally got what we wanted. The room was nice, quite, and clean. The breakfast was good and had a nice selection of food. Parking is rather expensive (24Euros/day). Quite a few restaurants in the surrounding, but some of them are tourist traps. (Ask at the reception which ones to avoid.)

It was a wonderful location. The hotel is across from taxi stand and right up the street from the hop on hop off bus. We had a great time around the corner were great tapas restaurants. The restaurant in the hotel was also very good. There was a small but efficient work out room. The hotel was great and when it came time to leave we just had to walk out the door and get in a taxi. I loved being by the river it was just great
