There is one negative with this hotel. Its position at the top end of Rua de Santa Catarina. I understand this is the longest street in Porto and for the most part it is pedestrianised. Of course unless you are travelling by car this is...More
I stayed in the main building on the 4th floor for the first night (thanks to Ryan Air for cancelling my flight!) . The room was beautiful with period furniture and very comfortable.. but the climb up the stairs was exhausting!!
The following nights I...More
The hotel was average at best. It is a 1 mile walk uphill from the tourist area. A little bit shady of a walk but nothing specific to share. We just walked fast and stayed together. Not really around food places so you have to...More

Although we're thankful for your review, we feel some things need clarification.
Porto is a very calm and humble city. We're sorry you felt the walk going down shady or not very safe, but we can assure you that more often than not,...More
This was a great discovery. We searched for hotels in lovely Porto and up pops this little jewel of a hotel tucked away off the street and with many historic features and superb rooms, blue tiles, beautiful decorations and even a chapel. Very nice staff...More

You don't need a car in Porto, so it's better to take a cab or transit from the airport to the hotel. We did have a car and our GPS got us there easily from the highway, but we parked the car and didn't move it for the five days we were in Porto. I don't think we paid for parking, but I think it might be 10 euros a day. It's easy to take trains to places nearby if you want to visit Braga, etc. If you do park the car at the hotel, security is on all night. There had been a car break-in the week before we were there. We loved our stay at Hotel Santa Carolina.
