Premium Porto Downtown
What We Love
- A contemporary hotel in the centre of historic Porto, with optional breakfast and moreThe 360º view rooftop sun terrace with bar and uninterrupted views of the city
- The central location in the historic centre of Porto, within walking distance of the city's best
- The modern, light-filled rooms with huge, comfy beds
What To Know
- The hotel is centrally located and within walking distance of many of Porto's hotspots; the city is notoriously hilly, however, so prepare for a lot of up and down
- The hotel has a nearby garage where parking is 9 €/day
- Free WiFi is hit or miss
Enjoy the soft light and elegantly faded details of Porto from the panoramic rooftop and comfortable interiors of the Premium Porto Downtown. Relax and recharge in bright, modern rooms with all the facilities and personal attention you would expect from a four star hotel. Premium Porto Downtown features charming contemporary details throughout, fluffy bathrobes, marble-detailed bathrooms, and a spacious, stylish sun terrace.
The excellent, central location in the historic centre of Porto means you are in walking distance of the best of the city; blue azulejo facades of ancient towers, churches, and train stations, restaurants and cafes where you can sample traditional Portuguese fare – don’s miss the custard tarts and Francesinha, Porto’s famous beefed (or sausaged!) up Croque-Monsieur. Winding through the centre, the mighty Douro river and its Eiffel-esque Dom Luis I Bridge connect you to the famous Port wine cellars and the delicious tastings within.
How to Get There
The location was perfect - walking distance to train station, shops and great restaurants all around; room was very comfortable and quite spacious, staff were very friendly, terrace had amazing views. Would definitely return
This hotel is centrally located and the major streets where all the action is happening are all in walking distance.
- central location
- clean bathrooms, renovated, good amenities, nice size shower and pressure
- courteous and helpful staff
- 8th floor terasse and restaurant
- poor wifi connection in our room and certain parts of the hotel
A good location close to restaurants and ATM machines. Clean rooms and spacious bathrooms. Nice and courteous staff. Reception staff were kind and helpful. It was good and positive experience overall.
Close to the main attractions and to the station.
Big common space but don't expect much choice on breakfast food. There are quite a few toilet available and sharing showers, but service can't be locked, of course the dormitory are unisex. The room was quite cold but it's been easy to get an extra duvet.
The reception guy been super helpful when I asked a few indication of the city.
I would recommend this hostel also for the possibility to leave the bag after the check out.
Mediocre service in the front desk, not helpful and unable to solve problems. The desk staff told us that they were 'just interns" and they didn't have enough training and that was the reason for the wrong information. This is worrisome, because to add to the poor service, the hotel is taking advantage of "young people without training" and probably unpaid...bad..bad!.
Other thing, the hotel made a charge in my credit card at checking with the explanation of test if the credit card is working and they told me that it will be refund immediately after my check out. However, they never refund the money despite many calls to the hotel, finally I have to dispute the charge through my credit card and the money was refund but less amount "because the difference of exchange rate".
The only good thing is the location, but it is not worth it. Please avoid this hotel.
