Enjoyed the stay

Mar 8th, 2020

This hotel is a small property ( I think about 20 rooms), a 3 minute walk from the Duoro river. Stayed here for 6 nights and enjoyed the area it was located in- lots of restaurant choices, ATM and small grocery store nearby. Good breakfast but after a few mornings, would have like perhaps an omelet, pancakes and more bacon.The room was not overly large but for one person more than enough. Modern bathroom with a shower only. Mini bar, coffee maker and staff replenished tea bags as requested. I know it is a Portugese thing- the reluctance to accept credit cards but surely when you order a car to drive you to the airport, some sort of credit card payment should be accepted by the hotel. Ditto for buying a HOHO bus pass. The street the hotel is on is a pedestrian only route except for garbage trucks at 630 in the morning. Noise by revellers on Friday/Saturday night also lasted well into the early morning. Take earplugs. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Just perfect

I can't think of a better boutique hotel. It is a three minute walk from the river, but on a quiet side street. The hotel was beautiful, themed on eras of Portugal's past. The bathroom in our room (105) was large and elegant. I counted five different kinds of marble, elegantly harmonized. An extraordinary feature of this hotel was the buffet breakfast, which was the best I have ever encountered. The were pasteis de nata, and delicious scrambled eggs. The coffee machine produced excellent coffee, and it was all available at reasonable hours. We stayed at a five star hotel the next day and the breakfast was nowhere near as good.

Excellent Hotel

Feb 22nd, 2020

Descobertas is right in the heart of Porto! A step away from the waterfront. The staff were extremely courteous and friendly and made our stay so easy! Breakfast was a lovely addition and set us up for the day! I would highly recommend Descobertas and would definitely return! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Great room, awesome location!

Feb 12th, 2020

I visited the hotel during a 2-day business trip in Porto. I booked a deluxe room on 3rd floor which was one of the nicest I ve been! Very large and comfortable, however the part I liked most was the bathroom, which was half the entire room size, with separate apartments for shower, bath tab and WC. Room view, nothing special, but didn't care at all. Possibly, one reason for the high value-for-money of the booking. The hotel is located by the Douro river on a highly touristic area. Nonetheless, it was quiet and not too crowded, maybe due to the time of year (end of January). The staff is friendly and professional. The breakfast was typical for a 4* hotel, nothing special here. Transit services from/to Porto airport and train station are offered at reasonable prices. Considering the airport, the price is approx. 25EUR, which is slightly lower than the local taxi rates. Overall, highly recommended for your stay in the very interesting city of Porto. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
