This hotel is perfectly postioned in the middle of Porto on the main shopping street, Rua Santa Catarina. Although, once you step through the gates and enter the hotel grounds you could be in another place as it has amazing lush green gardens and the ornate main hotel building and its beautiful tiles typical of this area, which make this the perfect place to stay. We felt immediately relaxed. We stayed in one of the garden rooms which meant we didnt have to go into the main hotel. The rooms were cool and of a good size with a TV and air con. They were very clean and nicely decorated and I had a nice big bathroom. I had a REALLY good nites sleep as was so quiet! Breakfast was continental but a good variety of local pastries or cheese and meat or you could have a hot breakfast for a few more euros. When you fist come for breakfast you will marvel in the opulence of the breakfast room and adjoining living room. We found all staff very helpful and friendly. We walked into town most nights and then took a taxi back for approx. 5-6 euros. I would highly recommend this hotel. I would recommend you try crofts port lodge over the river as they have an outside area you can enjoy the sunshine. Taylors do a great meal in the evening. We had amazing meal at Abadia (try and get the attention of the manager and get him to write your name down otherwise you end up waiting for ages for a table) this was a VERY popular retaurant on sat night! We also enjoyed dinner at Don Tonho, sat outside over looking the river. Also take a drive to Vila de Conde up the coast, great beach! NB when driving to this hotel it took us hours as one way streets were not marked on our map! You need to access Santa Catarina from the bottom.
