“Nice enough hotel but limited facilities”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

The hotel is reasonably well located, about 15 minutes walk from the main attractions in the centre of Porto. The beds were comfortable and the room clean, although the wooden floors do make it noisy if someone in the room above is wearing heeled shoes! The breakfast was reasonable but not the best selection I've had in other four star hotels. There weren't really any facilities to speak of (sauna, communal sitting areas) and the bar seemed to have limited stock.

Stayed at this hotel for a week. Location was good, you could walk to bars and restaurants. Very clean, nice beds and pillows. Quiet. Good breakfast. Liked that the staff in the breakfastroom didnt slam the dishes when cleaning. Weird music though! My husband was taken ill the last night and the hotel allowed us to keep the room longer without charge. Nice!

We have just returned after a two-day stay. The hotel was very clean and we had a quiet room in the annexe. Our view was overlooking people's garden and flats which was fine. We did not have breakfast and there are many places for breakfast nearby. Yes the beds were hard but we like them that way. It was wonderful to sit out and enjoy the terrace. The staff were very knowledgeable and helpful We would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

I have absolutely no complaints about this hotel itself. It's a very nice hotel with friendly service and very good value for money. That said, it's quite a walk from the riverside, and especially if you want to spend a lot of time on the Gaia side of the river, you might want to choose a location either closer to the riverside, or at least closer to a metro station or a bus line. It's not an impossible walk, we did walk it many times, but still...

We stayed at Eurostars Das Artes Hotel with my partner for a week and during the whole time we enjoyed great service, nice breakfast with a good variety and staff's friendly attitude. The hotel itself is clean and modern and the reception area makes a good first impression. Our room was on the 4th floor so we enjoyed a view of Porto's famous red roofs. The room was cleaned every day and we had no complaints. In terms of location, the hotel is situated in the quiet area of Porto and it takes about 15 minutes to get to Ribeira and other central attractions. Personally, I did not mind this walk as there are quite a few things on the way. It is a great value for money and we really enjoyed staying there.

If you are trying to find a good hotel in Porto which offers fantastic value for money, look no further! As some of the other reviewers said, this place is slightly remote from the action, and if perfect location is what you are after, there are better alternatives. However, if you do not mind a 20-something-minute walk to Ribeira (mind the fact that this area of Porto is quite hilly) and a 10-minute walk to the nearest Metro station (Carolina Michaelis) then you should be absolutely fine. The hotel itself is difficult to fault. We were pleasantly surprised by room cleanliness and quality, albeit the bed mattress may be too hard for some. The restaurant downstairs is also good. The continental breakfast offers plenty of choice, including several types of cheeses and meats (hot and cold). However, the breakfast menu could do with more rotation as it gets repetitive if you stay for more than just a couple of days.

Overall, it is a very solid hotel and you can do a lot worse for the same price.

My wife and I recently stayed here on a trip to Porto, Portugal. This hotel is in quiet part of the city but relatively close to many of the local sights.
Looking at the hotel from the outside you would think 'did I make a wrong choice', but once you step foot inside, all fears of that thought quickly disappear. This hotel is a hidden jem.
The rooms are very comfortable and spacious. The staff was quite friendly and very helpful.
We ate breakfast in the lower dinning room each morning and the food was OK. Not a real large selection but adequate.
If you are looking for a comfortable, clean and friendly place to stay, this is the one.
