    Contained in a home built in 1850 with original furnishings, if you are looking for a unique Porto experience, this is it. Marilda is your host and she is full of great conversation, great tips and suggestions. Breakfast is family style and you won’t want to leave the delicious food, all fresh Portuguese specialities. If you are offered a tour of the 2 sitting salons and some of the other rooms, do so. There are 5 beautifully decorated rooms that will leave you wishing that you had stayed longer. A short 15 minute (downhill) walk to the city centre and close to good restaurants. It is also close to the Trinidade metro that goes straight to the Port Cavas on the other side of the Douro. Highly recommend this hotel!

    We could not quite believe the service we received from this hotel. From late arrival and a warm welcome to include a glass of port and biscuits, to the most amazing breakfasts. Nothing was too much trouble. A very early start was met with a gorgeous array of food to help ourselves too before we went out, so we didn’t leave on an empty stomach. We truly were treated like part of the family, and make to feel like this was our home from home in Porto. Then the accommodation itself was truly breathtaking. The most amazing suite, beautiful decor and everything you could wish for. A recommendation to visit somehow doesn’t seem enough, simply put, a stay here for would be one of the most incredible experiences you will have anywhere. The location is also a fantastic base from which to explore Porto.

    Uniquely beautiful, historic, spacious, comfortable museum; extraordinary, gracious and accommodating hosts. Made us feel like welcomed guests in their home; very special experience! Would definitely stay here again. This is not a hotel; it’s a unique experience much more than a “Bed & Breakfast”.

    The palace rooms are each beautifully and uniquely decorated, the gardens are serene, and the staff make you feel like family. We were treated to a delightful tour of the home and the gardens, highlighting the history that has been passed down through both artwork and heirloom pieces, and demonstrating the passion Maria has for her home and her country. Marilda is a wonderful hostess, knowledgeable about all aspects of Porto and eager to make guests feel like royalty. We loved that we were in a beautiful and historic home right in the middle of Porto, convenient by foot to famous churches and museums, restaurants and markets, as well as to public transportation.

    A stay in this hotel - a marvelous historical building , situated in the old part of Porto, is like living in somebody’s home. From the minute you enter the house, you are treated by the lovely staff, as if you were the most important person in the World. We cannot praise this hotel enough.

    Beautiful historic home

    Beautiful historic home in a perfect location, close to everything but still quiet at night. The service was fabulous and the breakfast every morning was delicious. We loved the history behind the home and felt like we had a real Portuguese experience vs. staying in a hotel. Highly recommend 👍❤️

    best hotel in Porto!

    Probably the best hotel we’ve ever stayed in in all our travels. The palace was not only beautiful and comfortable, but the hospitality is unlike anything else we have experienced. Highly recommend staying here whenever you visit Porto and we will definitely be back in the future!
