Porto

Porto

Porto
Porto is a small but culturally rich city, located in the north of Portugal on the banks of the Douro River. Famous for its Port Wine, the city is also known for its universities, bridges and historic Old Town, which was awarded World Heritage status by UNESCO. Porto has its fair share of shops, museums and galleries and after winning the European Capital of Culture award in 2001 it started a programme of new cultural developments.

Who should go?
Porto is a popular destination for all ages due to its mix of culture and industry. From its museums and churches, to its vibrant clubbing scene, Porto offers something for all tastes.

alpharooms.com suggests
No trip to Porto would be complete without visiting the Ribera district of the city, in the heart of the Old Town. With its maze of cobbled streets and historic architecture, the Ribera is a living monument to the city’s rich past.

Centrally located in retro style

Centrally located elderly hotel in retro style. Very tidy, rather large rooms but no balcony - and the beds were hard. The staff was very helpful and friendly; the breakfast was simple.

The best thing about my stay was...

Walking distance to the city centre.

'RESIDENCIAL PAO DE ACUCAR' needs some serious TLC

I cannot suggest any way (other than double glazing) to reduce the traffic and street noise. Awful!<br />Breakfast was poorly managed in every possible way: on our first morning, the (TINNED!!??, oh no, not in PORTUGAL) fruit salad ran out. There were queues for tables (much to the chagrin, in particular, of some American visitors). Tables were not cleared promptly. Bread and other supplies were not topped up regularly enough - probably due to the arrangement of scullery and breakfast room, whereby an overview is impossible to achieve.<br />The next day, the coffee was cold. Only because I asked was an explanation given (to me) - a little announcement, e.g. an apology, to the clients in general would have helped. One employee said there had been a problem with the electric socket. Another employee said her colleague had forgotten to turn the machine on! Hmmm...<br />There was no variety in the breakfast: the same cheese and ham (and packet jam) were trotted out each day.<br />We weren't expecting four star catering, just three star (the rating the Residencial has). A little imagination and minimal extra cost would have improved the impression of the whole breakfast experience (even, dare I say it, some musak in the background).<br />When we entered our room, there was no shampoo in the bathroom. A plastic clip used in packaging shirts was on the bedroom carpet. It was still there two days later.

Review of 'RESIDENCIAL PAO DE ACUCAR'

The Resid Pao de Acucar was excellent value.&nbsp;&nbsp;We stayed 3 nights in Porto and found this hotel to be extremely well-placed with respect to shopping, sights, the waterfront, the port-warehouses and the historic areas of Porto.&nbsp;&nbsp;Easy walking to all major sites and to Bento Train Station.&nbsp;&nbsp;<br /><br />The hotel was very clean, spacious and well kept.&nbsp;&nbsp;Excellent value (although we were there in early season).&nbsp;&nbsp;The staff is multi-lingual and very helpful with regard to sites, resturants and general information.<br /><br />Highly recommended.&nbsp;&nbsp;The staircase through the building is a must-see even if you don't stay there!
