Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel but there are a few negatives. That said, they are far outweighed by the positives. First the negatives. It is a fairly dismal walk into the centre of the city. Not a huge distance but a bit of a trudge in the late afternoon after a day of sightseeing. And the... More

We loved the old castle, but disappointed that we didn't stay in the castle. We had a beautiful modern room, very clean, and comfortable! We felt the new additions took away from the old, and didn't blend in with the orginal architecture of the castle. The staff was very helpful and professional. The location was close enough to walk to... More

We loved our stay in this hotel. A stunningly beautiful building. A tiled castle full of antiques. We were stunned when our room turned out to be right at the top of the tower. What a view! Tea and coffee making and a modern bathroom. Breakfast ok and generous. We enjoyed our walk down through Porto. On our second evening... More

A nice small traditional hotel in a residential neighborhood of Porto, reasonably close to the center, Castelo de Santa Catarina was the best option indeed. Breakfast room was priceless. we really enjoyed our stay.

Castelo de Santa Catarina is about a 15 minute walk from the Se, or about 3 minutes from the Marques Metro stop. You can see the 'castle' - a turn-of-the-twentieth century grand residence - from the street, and you enter through a gate and walk up the driveway and along a short garden path to the reception. The grounds are... More

Interesting old building with beautiful breakfast room. Breakfast was included in the reasonable price and it was very good. The staff, particularly the young ones where really really helpful, both with the hotels and tourist recommendations. The building has great character but this comes with the edge that it's not 4 start, but if your looking for character and value,... More

This is a fascinating hotel to stay in. Our room was the Castle Royal Suite two floors up in the tower. It was beautifully furnished with antiques, had a modern bathroom and was so quiet. The bed was really comfortable too.. Breakfast was both hot and cold with a good selection to choose from. The owner and all his staff... More

Rooms in the Castelo are not your normal hotel rooms,these are interesting and stylish,the breakfast area is like being in a antique store with some fine statues, and the gardens and church are very interesting plus good off road parking.
