This Pousada is divided into two sections. The main house which looks like old castle and the hotel, which was refurbuished next to it, on the base of old industrial plant. The "castle" house has many empty rooms, no furnitures. Very nice outside garden facing the river..
The hotel rooms are very fency, nicely decorated and furnished with kind of old furniture.
The place location is in old industrial area, about 40 minutes walk to porto. If you have a car, it takes 5 minutes.
The rooms to the river side has some view of the river, but cost extra.
The breakfast buffet is good with many choices.
If you come to porto for one day it is better to have hotel at porto center. This hotel is over priced.
