we had used Porto as a hub to drive into Galicia and had returned to spend some time in exploring Porto, get cleaned up after travelling and have a chance of sleep. Whilst the hotel is well situated for exploring and definitely has charm the nature of the city streets leads to some persistent echoes from the night life over the weekend. The hotel has also not been upgraded with air conditioning which meant that our room above the main entrance was both oppressive and loud.

First time in the grande hotel paris. I was there in couple for tourism for 4 days. The hotel is nice located near the main attractions. Breakfast good with a large choice. The room was very small and at 8:30 am the water of the shower was cold (too many people in the hotel the reception told me !!). I wanted also to say that the key of our room open as well our room than the room close of our room!!! Not very reassuring...

Was a real surprise! Location is perfect, reception is wery nice, polite and helpful! Public areas AMAZING! It is a museum, not hotel! The room was good, i enjoyed the bathroom - new, clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was better than expected - fried eggs, bacon, sausages, variety of cheeses and hams...very good coffee! A lot of cakes (you may like or not, but a lot of things to choose) Again I had the same problem with Internet as i usualy have in the hotels - Wi-Fi is free but only in the hall, the signal is not getting to the room! Please buy a Wi-Fi repeater and you can add 1 star more! Another advice - Parking where the hotel sent us is rather expensive - for 1 day 17 eur. If you could make an agreement of special discount for the clients of the hotel that would be perfect.

Das älteste Hotel Portos hat uns ganz gut gefallen. Sehr saubere, aber kleine Zimmer. Das bisher beste Frühstück das wir in Porto in einem Hotel dieser Preiskategorie bekommen haben. Zimmer zur Strasse sind trotz neuer Fenster sehr laut da ein Club/Disco um die Ecke ist. Hier darauf achten das man Zimmer nach hinten raus bekommt. Schöner Innenhof, PC Ecke, kleine Bar. Vermisst haben wir die Minibar im Zimmer. Wir haben schon einige Hotels in Porto besucht, ich denke wir werden zukünfig dort übernachten.

Really a fantastic hotel, great breakfast, very central to major sights. Romantic, clean and nice view from our window. Would be a great hotel if only the staff were more friendly and maids were not so noisy in the afternoon, cleaning and cleaning staircases until 5pm. That was really tough to bear.

Stayed at the hotel for two nights. Location is great. The property is not in the historic UNESCO designated area center but 5 minutes walking distance from it (Porto is small). There is a parking garage nearby to park in as there is no private parking available. Rooms are old but overall, they were clean. Our friends' rooms which faced the street was very noisy but it was also Carnaval time so if it's a non-holiday, it might not be a problem. The staff was really nice and helpful and the breakfast buffet included in our rates was good. It's a great deal for the price and value. I would stay there again without hesitation.

Perfect & nice hotel in charming ART-DECO style, well redone with modern comfort. Center of town. Car parking only in local nearby undergroung parkings. Public transport is nearby. Porto is easy to cover by foot for the sporty ones. Rooms are fine and well decorated in style, bedding OK, a royal superb breakfast is served. Staff is helpfull (english and french) Not for heavily handicapped travellers, Lovers of modern and impersonal hotels should abstain! This place is a great architectural experience. Value for money. We loved it and felt 'at home'. Warmly recommended.

A very good stay . The hotel is old fashioned with faded charm but well maintained ,in a steep narrow road , but most streets in Porto are like that. Location is close to main square & metro , the interior is eccentric, the garden is very pleasant and the breakfast room spacious. All of the staff were excellent , welcoming ,friendly, and helpful , with good English spoken . Breakfast was very good. The rooms are reasonably basic but are clean and airy and decent value for money. As a hotel stop for 3 or 4 nights this is highly recommended. First time in Porto , parts of the old town are run down but the parks , squares and riverfront are beautiful. best food we found along the river cafes , really good service at the Lapin. Church interiors are plasteresque and spectacularly over the top - but don't miss the wonderful interior of the bookshop in Rue des Carmelitas near the hotel.

Good area and if you had any doubts the 24 hour guard of 2 policeman on the neighbouring Bank of Portugal would reassure you! Breakfast very good continental plus option of cooked English breakfast

Excellent hotel in very convenient location downtown; old hotel (since 1888?) with great old times charm in decor in rooms and public rooms (though facilities modern). Their web page should include more photos of public rooms with antiques! Superb breakfast--wide range of choice hot and cold, like a Victorian country house breakfast. Lovely little garden at back, with camellia trees blooming (in March). Room at front overlooked a street that could be a little noisy at night as people were leaving taverns, but no problem with windows and curtains closed. I highly recommend this hotel, which had been recommended to me by friends who had stayed there, and certainly plan to stay there next time I am in Porto. For smokers: smoking permitted in the garden, which is convenient and pleasant.

El hotel superó, con mucho mis expectativas.Las habitaciones son amplias, amuebladas en distintos estilos y con bastante espacio para la ropa, aunque hay grandes diferencias en el grado de modernidad de los baños. Las zonas comunes del edificio merecen un paseo detenido, tanto por el cuidado con que se han elegido los muebles antiguos, como por la distribución de los distintos pisos. Parece como si uno estuviera alojado en una gran mansión victoriana en vez de en un hotel. En cuanto al comedor de los desayunos es un espacio francamente bonito, cuidado y que además tiene el añadido de la visión del pequeño jardín al que también se puede salir. El desayuno es variado y destacaría la calidad de la fruta. En cuanto al personal de recepción tenemos que agradecer que localizaran al taxi que nos llevaba al aeropuerto para avisarnos de que nos habíamos dejado un abrigo. Y por último la localización del hotel es muy céntrica. En resúmen: Un descubrimiento altamente recomendable, al que volvería sin dudarlo. Sólo un problema para las personas mayores: para acceder al hall hay que subir un buen tramo de escaleras.

4 days in Porto. The Hotel was beautiful, a real step back in time, lots of different levels and grand staircases and seating areas with different styles of furniture, a pleasure to explore and look at. The Breakfast room was gorgeous and the food was plentiful and very tasty and satisfying, a delight to eat. The breakfast waitor however was very unfriendly, but worked hard at his job. On the whole, the staff were quite rude and unfriendly, which spoiled the stay a little, but there was one man and one younger bloke who were nice and pleasant. The staff were quite rude at times, however they were efficient at their jobs. My room had a tiny balcony with a view of the rooftops of the city, a delight, however the water tanks were directly above this area and were a little noisy at times.

La posizione dell'Hotel è veramente strategica per poter visitare il centro storico della città e allo stesso tempo in zona tranquilla. L'albergo non è un granchè e lo ritengo adatto a brevi permanenze, comunque è pulito e le camere non sono tutte allo stesso livello quindi potendo scegliere quelle del primo o secondo piano si può avere una sistemazione più che decorosa. Obbiettivamente, per 60€ a notte colazione compresa, non si può pretendere di più. Ci ritornerei.

Stayed here 10/4/08 for two nights. Room 204. Paid 60 Euro prpn including breakfast. Excellent location just off Praça da Liberdade (the main square), a few minutes walk from São Bento station, and about 15-20 minutes walk from Ribeira and the riverfront. This hotel has been going for 125 years, once a grand hotel, and still retaining its charm and faded elegance, with plenty of character in its decor and antique furnishings both in the rooms and the communal areas. Attractive room with wooden floor, good modern bathroom. Many beautiful seating areas around the hotel. No a/c in room (not a problem in April). Our room overlooked the street, but it is a quiet side street and there was not much noise, (the works mentioned a few months ago have now been completed). Breakfast was wonderful, a buffet with an extensive selection including much fresh fruit, served in a really attractive room with a relaxed atmosphere overlooking the garden. The reception staff rather lacked charm, this was the one minor point which could be improved; breakfast staff were pleasant. There is no restaurant, but there are many places to eat nearby and in Ribeira - we especially liked O Restaurante da Alzira in Ribeira. Good value considering its attractiveness and central location. This was our favourite hotel in Portugal. Well known and popular, so need to book in advance (we wanted to return a few days later but it was full). Porto is a beautiful city and worth spending a few days in, as well as being a good base for the Douro Valley and surrounding areas.

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Paris. I Have to agree with the other guests that the breakfasts are certainly worth getting up for and the interior furnishings are definitely of another age. I Would definitely stay Here Again. As for Porto itself, we found the city very enjoyable and cheap from a British perspective. The Ribeira area in particular is a fascinating jumble of narrow winding streets.In addition the people were amongst the friendliest we have ever encountered on our numerous trips abroad. In conclusion I would definitely recommend both Porto and the hotel to anybody. Ian Sidlow.

Wir sind 46 und 33 und haben das Hotel vom 19.10.2007 bis 22.10.2007 reserviert. Es handelte sich um ein Twin Standard Zimmer zum Preis von 55,00 Euro pro Nacht. Auf der Venere.com wurde leider es nicht vermerkt, dass die Straße, in der sich das Hotel befindet, im Vollen und Ganzen, vom Anfang bis zum Ende eine große Baustelle ist. Diese Straße ist dazu noch sehr steif, es war also fast unmöglich über die Straße zu gehen. Mit den Reisekoffern war es überhaupt nicht mehr möglich. Die Baustelle wird noch bestimmt ein Jahr oder länger dauern. Wenn wir es gewusst hätten, würden wir dieses Hotel auf keinen Fall reserviert. Im Übrigen braucht das ganze Hotel dringend eine Renovierung. Die Zimmer waren nicht sauber. Das Personal nicht freundlich (obwohl die Portugiesen normalerweise sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit sind). Nur das Frühstück war sehr gut. Die Informationen über das Hotel auf Venere.com sind falsch und Venere.com als Vermittler ist leider davon überzeugt, dass sie keine Verantwortung für die falschen Informationen tragen muss. Es ist sehr schade.

Also nice to have a garden to sit in in the city. Only down side was that we looked over a derelict storage shed but beyond that was the Tower. Hotel staff welcoming and friendly.

An otherwise excellent 2 night stay was marred by the whole street outside the hotel being dug up (not a factor under the control of the hotel).Thus we had to carry 4 heavy bags ourselves some distance over rough bomb site like terrain to a taxi both when we arrived and when we departed. The road works fortunately suspended during our weekend stay were potentially noisy and dusty. The breakfast was the best we have ever had in a three star hotel and the garden and common rooms very peaceful and relaxing.

No fue contemplado este inconveniente ni previamente por mail ni encontramos recepcion en el front desk al plantear nuestra dificultad. Tampoco hubo reduccion de tarifa por esta limitante, que no estaba contemplada en la tarifa convenida. No encontramos amabilidad en la recepcion para manejar estos inconvenientes. La relacion costo-servicio no la encontre ajustada, comparando con estadias en otras ciudades. Como puntos positivos tiene un buen desayuno, abiente tranquilo y edificio antiguo muy mantenido.

Something special. Old building, antiquarian atmosphere with modern service. The receptionist seemed not very welcome, but they know to do their work. Don't miss the breakfast it is the best of all. In the center of the city - you may have a difficulties with parking, but all of points of interest are in max 15 min walk

There is ongoing construction right outside the hotel - in order not to hear it first thing in the morning my husband and I had to take a twin beds room. However, the staff was super helpful, the room was nice and clean, and the location was perfect. I would definitely stay here again. Oh, and the breakfast was delicious!

A very nice central hotel. Cosy, old-fashioned, but clean and well-run. Can be noisy as it is in the middle of town, not a problem for me as I can sleep anyway. Garden for a city hotel is not often very much, but this was a positive surprise, actually a large garden with trees and fountain, where you could sit for breakfast. Some people complained of the service, but as far as I could see, the staff spoke English and French and were very helpful. Perfectly situation in the middle of town. A bargain for that price!

We are a couple and stayed for 2 days in the hotel. The room and the bathroom (shower) were very small, but we heard that the rooms are all the same. The breakfast had a good choice of food. The garden is beautiful, but not much cared for. It could be a nice retreat after walking through the town. The bar is not really worth visiting, opens not before 4 p.m. and there is hardly any drinks (no cold water!!). But the situation of the house in the middle of the old town is perfect, the furniture and decoration worth seeing, and in relationship to the price it is ok for a short stay.

The staff member was helpful to find activities and restaurants. Our room had a balcony with a beautiful view, a table and 2 chairs too. The hotel is a little old so it's smell humidity in the hall, but its clean and smell good in the room. Very good area. Right in the old city. The train station is very close, not even 5 minutes by walking. The breakfast was a brunch and it was very good. Lots of choices! Very nice room. Internet didn't work in the lobby. Staff member who speak french easily.

Overall good quality for the price. Very good central location. Very nice breakfast room with stylish furniture as in all public areas. Contrary to the information on web site, hotel DOES NOT accept credit cards and NOT ALL rooms have private balconies. Bathrooms definitely need refurbishment but otherwise clean.

Absolutely brilliant. The hotel was meticulously clean, very spacious, the beds were solid and enabled a good night's rest, the bathrooms were clean and large. The breakfast was wholesome, including the regular items as well as a wide variety of Portugese pastries. The location was very central to the Avendida dos Aliados, yet the room was very quiet. Conclusion: Conducive to a good night's sleep and a great holiday.
