Had a very early start and a sad goodbye to Mummy - the 2 weeks has flown by. I do so hope Mum's pain settles and she will be ok.
Our day started with Sean's luggage going astray after the first flight to Orly, we were worried as we had to catch another flight with a different airline, anyway all was ok in the end. Took just under 2 hours …
We left Albufeira at about 9am, we had been lucky enough to find a parking space in the old town centre which is mostly pedestrianised, the car had remained there for most of our time in the town. We loaded up and hit the road we were heading for Porto in Northern Portugal, it was 330 miles and the majority of it was on the motorway. The Roads were …
We got up at 9am and went for breakfast, the usual rolls and coffee, We left the hotel just before 10 and decided to do the other bus route the blue line. It was a bit shorter that the red one, the bus took us over most of the large bridges which gave us great views of the Douro river, Porto and Gaia. We went past the Dragons football stadium where …
... driving down the tiny goat tracks from the "Mill Farm", before we stopped at a Repsol garage on the motorway, after approximately 30 kilometres of driving. In the garage, we were asked by a local toll cop (who is similar to those people who work for Eastlink, and monitor everyone's e-Tags), why we weren't paying our tolls. Dad explained that there were no toll booths to pay at, which was correct, however in Portugal there is a new system being ...
... to his worship he must be somewhat underwhelmed! Perhaps if the RC clergy were to visit Poland and see the glistening gold in clean churches there they might see that things could be a tad brighter. As you walk through the backstreets and alleys, and when you look to the upper floors on the main streets the majority of rooms seem to have been unoccupied for a long while. As with many tourist magnets, employment must be seasonal. People are friendly here ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Residencial Pao de Acucar Porto
We spent half an hour in our rental car to get there - driving in Porto can be quite a nightmare (that was the last rental day luckily).
Bei unserer Ankunft wurden wir von einem netten Jungen empfangen, der sehr gut englisch sprach. Das Zimmer war sehr sauber und geräumig. Für ein Drei-Sterne-Hotel war das Frühstück sehr gut. An unserem nächsten Besuch in Porto werden wir ganz bestimmt wieder hier wohnen.
Wir erhielten ein einmaliges Angebot für unsere drei Nächte Aufenthalt im zentral gelegenem Porto. Es ist kein luxuriöses Hotel, aber sauber und ruhig mit einem ausreichenden Frühstück. Der Frühstücksraum ist sehr klein und wahrscheinlich nicht ausreichend bei Vollbesetzung, jedoch befindet sich eine angrenzende Dachterrasse auf dem Gebäude, die man bei warmen Wetter benutzen kann. Das Personal am Empfang war das freundlichste und hilfsbereiteste, das wir je getroffen haben. Sie informierten uns über all die besten Orte, die man aufsuchen sollte, welche jedoch nicht unbedingt in dem Reiseführer enthalten sind. Ganz bestimmt werden wir dieses Hotel wieder aufsuchen. In Porto haben wir uns verliebt. Es hat viel mehr zu bieten als viele andere kleine europäische Städte. Es gibt dort nicht nur die übliche Auswahl an Kirchen, Kathedralen, Schlösser etc., sondern ausgefallene kleine und alte Geschäfte, Kaffees und Büchereien, die seit ihrer Entstehung nicht verändert wurden. Natürlich ist das Probieren von Portweinen ebenfalls eine feine Sache. Besonders zu erwähnen ist da Offleys, wo das Personal und der Portwein großartig sind. Taylors hat einen wunderbaren Garten und ist darüber hinaus ein Weltklasse Restaurant.
Very small rooms
We stayed in the double comfort room with terrace and view.
The hotel is very centrally located and the staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is regular Portugese standard and the ambience is fine, but the rooms are so very small!
The most expensive "comfort" rooms have a space of 50 cm around the bed left and the bathroom cannot hold 2 people at the same time. There is just no place left in the room to open a suitcase without having to jump over it.
The terrace is nice and spaceous but is shared, so other visitors having a late night drink on the terrace next to your room will keep you awake. Furthermore, beds are extremely hard and we have suffered some back pain after sleeping here.
I have just come back from Porto and wanted to let you all know about the roadworks going on around this pretty decent hotel. It wasn't too noisy to sleep but they are working until 9pm at night to get the road finished. Usually, this hotel would be in a very good location because it's so central. But at the moment there are fences up all down the street, and big machinery being used almost constantly.
when we arrive we were well received by a gentil boy, that spoke very well english.
the room was very clean and spacious.
the breakfast was very good for a 3 stars hotel
we will be back certainly in a next visit to porto.
I cannot suggest any way (other than double glazing) to reduce the traffic and street noise. Awful!
We paid such a bargain price for our 3 night stay at this central location in Porto. It isn't luxurious, but it's clean, quiet and the breakfast is more than adequate. The breakfast room is rather small and we did wonder how they would manage when the hotel is full, but there is a nice roof terrace adjoining where you could take your food in the warmer weather.
We stayed overnight and found the room, service, assistance and location to be very good. We would certainly stay there again.
Lovely quiet residencial just off the main square with pleasant friendly helpful staff who spoke English. Generous breakfast, and spacious rooms with AC and a TV. Certainly worth 50-60 euros.
