Upon entering the penthouse, we felt special. My friend took a video to send to her parents and boyfriend. We each have traveled quite a bit, but this is special. For the penthouse, though, you do need to be able to walk upstairs. The staff was incredibly helpful and welcoming. We enjoyed the views and the location.

As with other places in the Ribeira area, you can't drive to the hotel at certain times, though cans have access (as I understand it, throughout the day).

We enjoyed stepping outside the hotel door and jogging along the river each morning.

I think other reviews cover other aspects, so I won't add anything more here other than to say it's a great place.

We stayed at the Porto River for three nights in May 2016. The apartments are really beautiful, clean and really comfortable. The staff are really friendly and the breakfast are excellent, great for starting a full day sightseeing.

But the location of the apartments is the most special thing about them. They are in the heart of the old town overlooking the Douro River beside the Pont Luis Bridge. We couldn't recommend this apartment high enough and this is the first time I have left a review on a property.

Room Tip: The two bed apartment is perfect for three people.

Dinstiguished location, new and clean premises with a lovely staff makes Porto River a perfect option for the city of Porto.
Breakfast is delicious with everything fresh.
River view also makes a difference.
Pros
Location if you don't mind that you will be at the lower level of the city.
Property is new, clean and very spacious, including the shower box
Staff is there to help you and solve your needs

Cons
Location if you don't like walk that much since you have to go up for almost everything.

Great design hotel. Friendly staff. Very carefully decorated. The view is breathtaking. The location is perfect, the Ribeira is full of life. Nevertheless, the room was perfectly quiet, not a single sound came in from the outside. Loved the bed. The breakfast was great!

We were staying in river view room and it was just perfect. Stepping out of the hotel door and you were in the middle of everything. Very helpful staff and nicely furnished rooms. Everything was clean and pretty new. Excellent hotel and we would like to choose it in our next trip as well

Room Tip: The only thing missing was a proper closet for your staff, there were only hangers.
