“Star ratings need updating”
Reviewed 15 September 2011

This charming hotel would receive higher ratings here if it claimed a more realistic star rating. As a 3-4 star hotel (and price) it would get at least one more tripadvisor bubble across the board. In 2011 I would expect a better work place in the room. More electrical outlets (had to disconcect the night table lamp to connect my travel clock). A real selection and quality of international TV channels. A gym. Earlier breakfast (8 - 10 doesn't work for most early risers). Try the Yeatman.

I would highly recommend this property in Porto. Although it's not the closest to the cellars, it well made up for it in style, charm, accessibility to good shops, and service.

Our group was greeted by eager bellmen and lovely front desk employees who poured us glasses of port before we'd even given them our passports.

The interior design of the hotel is absolutely fabulous. I think this is the best historical property I've stayed in. They've maintained the integrity and old world features of the hotel, while updating fabrics and prints... The result is a hotel that feels fresh and chic, but still maintains its soul. So many other historical properties I've stayed at feel tired and worn out... Not here!

The elevator is absolutely beautiful by the way. You MUST give it a ride. But be warned - it can't carry more than 4 people at once.

One day we ordered coffee to the room. They brought it but didn't even charge us.

We loved our stay here, and would DEFINITELY return on another trip to Porto!

Located in the city centre (more or less), old Grand Hotel style, bit of a fading beauty but still nice with charm. wireless did not work.

We chose this hotel because of it's position in the centre of Porto. Well, arriving in the middle of the night we found on the opposite side the cafse were all open, people drunken outside and yelling. We were dropped of at the door of the hotel (car had been ordered by the hotel!). We had to carry our bags inside and after checking in, bring our luggage to our room ourselves. Well, ok. Nice room, noisy airco. Open window: noise from airco's outside. Good, but old fashioned bathroom (no seperate shower and slippery bathtub). Enormous mirror in on the door in front of the toilet: do you want to see yourself sitting down????
Good service, kind people. Don't eat in the restaurant: we did this because a former 1 star chef is supposed to cook there. Food was bad quality, dark dining room, not expensive though. Better find yourself a nice place outside the hotel.

The best thing about this hotel is the lobby and bar, you should go and see this when in Porto. The designer can have 3 stars as far as we were concerned, but we experienced this hotel not 5*.

This was a phenomenal find in Porto. Paolo (the manager) and his staff were true professionals and bent over backwards to make us comfortable. The hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of all the major sites, including the Port warehouse districts. The room was FANTASTIC - many antiques in the room and it truly was spectacular. Paolo himself even left the hotel with us to select some port to ship home from a local store - We will definitely return and only will stay here at the Infante. Thanks Paolo!!!!!!!

This hotel is just gorgeous - comfortable and beautifully decorated/renovated with an eclectic mix of old and new. The wonderful curved staircase with lead light windows is just stunning as are many details all over the hotel and rooms. The bedrooms are great with extremely comfortable beds - the bathrooms are just a little bit old fashioned and maybe they could have updated them a bit when renovations were carried out to the hotel. Make sure you get a room at the back as I believe it can be very noisy if you have a room on the street during the weekends. We were there midweek and there were no noise problems at all but have been warned about the weekends.
The front desk staff were marvellous and I really have to give a special mention to Laura who went out of her way to help us every time we needed some advice on Porto - thanks Laura for treating us like old friends rather than guests passing through. You made a lot of difference!
When we first arrived we were tired and hungry so ordered some sandwiches in the courtyard and I have to say they were the worst, overpriced sandwiches any of us have ever eaten. Do NOT have lunch there! They were tasteless, with hardly any filling and on the worst kind of white bread you can imagine.
Breakfast was good, though and I can't comment on dinner as we ate out each night we were there (3).
Overall it was a most enjoyable hotel and I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms at the back of the hotel.

Great classic boutique hotel and part of the “Small Luxury Hotels of the World. Service is excellent and my Superior room was spacious and modern. Cost is 180 Euros/day which is a little on the high side but provides great value. Hotel is gorgeous and exudes the atmosphere of the early 1900's. Location is ideal and quiet and there is reduced valet parking nearby. Sumptuous complimentary breakfast buffet which was the best I experienced during my 2 week trip in Portugal. The selection is enormous and includes, hams, cheeses, eggs, bacon, sausage, juices and more than I can possibly describe.

Room Tip: Internet reservations make it very simple to book
