This is a converted Bishop’s (or Cardinal’s) palace. It’s an excellent place to stay during your explorations of Porto. The staff is terrific and rooms and common areas are pleasant, clean, and comfortable. It’s a nice change from the cookie-cutter chains.

There was a mix-up in my reservation and Miguel at the hotel did all he could to make it right. Susanna was also very good and in the end things worked out just fine. The property is spectacular. The service is superb.
