How to Get There
Overall is good. Nice modern design in an old building. Great location near the river and Dom Luis I bridge. Room is good and clean.
Check-in and check out was quick. Staffs are professional but it feels more like a business hotel. We requested for taxi very early next morning. The taxi was already waiting for us when we checked-out. Good service.
However, we arrived around noon time, however, we were not allowed to check-in early. We were told that the system didn't allow us to check in. Wish the management can consider to make it more flexible in the future.
Our room was on 2nd floor at the corner of the street. At night it was a bit noisy from the garbage truck and people shouting.
We spent two days in Porto (our first time there) and the Carris Porto Ribeira was a gem of a find!
First off, the hotel is ideally located...only one block from the waterfront, but quiet enough to enjoy your stay. Everything one could want is within walking distance. I've seen reviews that people had problem being dropped off/picked up in front of the hotel....that clearly wasn't our experience. We simply got out of the taxi on the other side of the street (where there is a drop off zone) and walked across the 2-lane street...no problem.
Our room was exceptional, with a spacious living room, well equipped bedroom and not one, but two amazing terraces, one overlooking the river and the warehouses across the way. The room was well furnished, with modern furniture and an wonderful bathroom, but still has kept many of the charming historical details of the building (our room had this amazing circular window which could actually be opened!). Our room was exceptionally reasonably priced for the size, quality and views supplied.
The staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. Jorge greeted us upon arrival and after 5 minutes, had us all checked in. He provided terrific suggestions for both lunch and for dinners on both nights. The hotel was busy with a conference...but everyone always took time of answer our questions and help out in any way possible.
Our package included breakfast in their restaurant, which was perfect....fresh fruits, meats, cheeses, pastries, eggs and breakfast meats. Great coffee and tea too!
Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. However, we've found a new home in Porto and can't wait to return to the Carris Porto Ribeira.
This location seems ideal but because of new rules your taxi can not leave you in front.
The harbor is right there but the tiny rooms have no view.
The front desk staff was rude! Asking for management got you the rudest of all.
Breakfast was okay rather average.
There are so many charming people in Portugal that this place should be avoided.
Requested a decent room/view but on arrival had to pay extra for a suite to get a decent view. Expensive surprise. Good service and continental breakfast. Porto suffering from too many tourists but great for a few days especially hiring bikes to explore river and coasts.
We stayed three nights at the Riberia do Porto and had to move because they were full. Three nights at the Riberia do Porto were cheaper than two at the Carris. At the Carris we had no view, no breakfast and the place is like a rabbit Warren. It's was definitely more upmarket but not worth the money.
