Quite a lot has been said about this strange hotel already. And we suppose it really is a peculiar place - no lifts, narrow stairs, freakish interior (who is behing the idea of the two of you looking into your separate mirrors when sitting on the small sofa?) and very squieky beds.
But it has ambience. The staff is cool/reserved, but efficient, and they warm up: Have an outside smoke with the the receptionist in the morning, and he will tell you interesting things about Porto, including detailed driving descriptions. And of the port-tasting business down at the river. And about the pousadas up in the Douro district. And he will look at you and say: "You may reserve your last night here, but if you change your mind, please call me", because he knows that the two nights here are in sharp contrast with the luxury and service you shall experience in the pousadas.
And he will hand you the card of the hotel, with his signature on it, and wish you Godspeed on your journey in Portugal - he has had you as his guest for a night or two, and he expects no more: Boa viagem!
We will remember this place, for its central location and beautiful gardens - and its strangeness!
