We had a superb view of the the river, the Dom Luis bridge and adjacent Praca Ribeira from our bedroom. In addition the room was very spacious with an extremely comfortable bed. The breakfast was excellent and sited in a very pleasant riverside room. The
From the hotel you can easily explore both sides of the river. It is well worth taking the funicular by the bridge for another brilliant view of the river (the descent resembles a slow motion roller coaster ride).A short walk in the other direction from the hotel takes you to the riverside tram ride (route 1). For a good value seafood restaurant, try Adega S Nicolau just around the corner but away from the more touristy places.
My only gripe about the hotel was the Wi-Fi charge (€5 for 24 hours). I found you can just as easily log on to the local free Porto Wi-Fi service.
