The Yeatman arguably is the high-end hotel in Porto. On the hill of Gaia, each room overlooks the river and the old city. Even the cheapest rooms (relatively spoken) are wonderfully equipped, for instance with a small individual library with new English and Portuguese books. In-room WLAN had good speed, suitable for streaming (once a technical defect had been fixed)....

This is a difficult one, I think the Yeatman is a wonderful hotel and will probably come again, however there are some things which don't quite 'work'. Some minus points: Service in Dick's Bar seemed extremely slow, there was a PR event going on during our stay, the carpets are a little Vegas, our bathroom seemed relatively small, the bed...

We stayed at The Yeatman over Easter and had a fantastic time. We arranged for the hotel to collect us from the airport and the driver was prompt and professional. The cost was 35 euros and took around 20-25 minutes. Not sure there is much to add about the hotel building. It is gorgeous; elegant, spacious, well appointed and maintained...

My experience at The Yeatman is always better than the last visit. From the moment the reservation starts, even before checking in, The Yeatman creates a memorable experience. The hotel opened in 2010 and it keeps looking like new! Breakfast offers an amazing variety prepared by their Michelin stared kitchen. Dick's Bar is elegant and friendly. The Spa Caudalie is...

My partner and I were treated to one of the suites that was one of the largest and most well appointed hotel rooms we've ever stayed at. The hotel service was professional and competent in every occasion. We debated staying in Gaia vs in Porto but The Yeatman has stunning views of the Douro River and the old city of...

The restaurant is across the river from Porto and the view of the bridge and the city was absolutely stunning. Especially at sunset. Our room had a balcony and it also faced the same gorgeous view. It will take a while to walk across the bridge and to the city though. The service was ok. Not the best we experienced...

Stayed in a Suite with Porto view (family of 4). What a gorgeous hotel! The suite is huge and the views of Porto from the Hotel are great. Be it from the balcony, or the outdoor infinity pool, or the indoor heated pool. It's a 10-15 min walk to the restaurants on it's side of the river (Across from Porto)....

We previously stayed at this hotel several years and were so delighted that we returned April, 2017. Regrettable, things have changed....for the worse. Our check in was great however, we were turned over to a young lady who showed us our room. As she asked and was informed that we had stayed at the hotel before, she commented that we...

We were at the yeatman for four days. The room was quite nice and the view was wonderful. I would recommend it with one condition - you will want to be far away from the large construction project on the east end of the hotel. They were using very loud machinery that sounded like jack hammers every day we were...

I wanted to love this hotel but unfortunately the service was not five star. The room we had was beautiful and each room is named after a wine maker in the region. Lots of nice touches at the hotel and the views are to die for. Unfortunately the service at the bar area and the breakfast are almost non existance....
