Beautiful location, lovely clean room, great top bar with amazing views and service. Very good breakfast. Not far from the city center. Staying here gave us the best of Porto. Sea and beaches, lovely resturants and just a tram ride away from the beutiful old town.

We spend a lovely relaxong week at this hotel. It has friendly staff, nice food and a lovely rooftop pool and terrace. Porto is a 20 minute bus ride and there is a long sea promenade around the corner. It is not a seaside place with loads of shops and cafes but there were enough restaurants to enjoy.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Boa-Vista reserves for you the privilege of being the only Hotel in Foz, the noble part of the city, where the Douro river meets the Atlantic ocean. Here you are far away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to everything.The Historic Centre can be quickly reached along the waterfront, offering views of the natural beauty of the river and its imposing bridges.When returning to Foz, you can enjoy the walk between the river and the sea, cross the romantic Passeio Alegre garden and admire the 16th century architecture of S. Joao Fort, just across from the hotel. After the piers and lighthouses at the Douro’s bar, the sophisticated atmosphere of the modern outdoor cafes overlooking the sea is well worth a visit. ... more   less
