... to get on. The girl grabbed my head and gave me a little hug and told us it's okay. We were so lucky we got on the train, and for amazing people like that. My friend Anna was supposed to pick us up at 4:30 today so we has to use countless pay phones to try & get ahold of her, ah well.. . It's all life's adventures I suppose! Finally made it to my Anna and it feels so good to be reunited, and so glad my dad and sister had a good trip in Cuba! ...
Burns Night was celebrated in true Scottish style, probably the best Burn's Night we have been to starting with the haggis being piped in by the pipe Major followed by the captain and crew.

... bed and breakfast in the north of Portugal. So we decided this was the place for us and began working out how to get there. Surprisingly it turned out to be quite straight forward in the end, a long bloody day but still, straight forward. We woke up at 6am on the 9th of january to get our train to gatwick, then took a short flight over to Santiago, we then had 4 hours to spare before catching another bus to Porto in Portugal. We took ...

Antonio, Marcela’s dad, escorted us into the house where mother Maria and younger sister Maria were waiting with a fully set table in the kitchen, ready to serve cabbage soup, fried catfish and a medley of vegetables from the garden, and a pair of other vegetables that were deliciously deep fried (fish from the garden).
All this was topped off with a couple of traditional desserts, Rabanadas (a kind ...

So before we head off for a day-long excursion to Salamanca, Spain, I'll just pen a few thoughts about our day in Porto. We had come in the day before and spent much of that day sitting out the rain by catching up on the documentation side of travel planning. Rain is always possible this time of year in northern Portugal, but locals tells us that it doesn't often last long, and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel da Bolsa Porto
Fantastic location in historic center
I stayed at Hotel Da Bolsa for one night.
STAFF: Very courteous and helpful.
ROOM: The best thing about our room was the view of the rooftops of the historic center. We took tons of pictures of this beautiful view. The room was very spacious, but the bathroom was on the small side. A standard 3-star room.
LOCATION: Only a few minutes' walk to the Douro River, the Ribiera district, and the rest of the historic core.
NEARBY EATERIES: Tons of bakeries and restaurants within walking distance.
TRANSPORTATION: A short walk to many bus lines and to the train station that serves the north of Portugal (e.g., Guimaraes). But, Porto is a walking city, so walk!
Portugal in general seemed to be great value for your money, and this hotel was a great example. My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights of our honeymoon, after a week in Cascais and before we left for Amsterdam.
Smart, well run reasonably priced hotel in a very good location. Ask for a room with a view; ours was on the top florr and the four windows looked across the river and the town. Clean, modern and good rooms. Not a bad buffet breakfast either.
Excellent location, friendly and helpful staff
My wife and I stayed at the Hotel de Bolsa for eight nights in July. The standard of accommodation was very good for the price. The rooms are a good size, are quite well appointed and are kept very clean. The hotel is in an excellent / quiet location being midway between the train station / shopping district and the many attractive riverside eateries and bars. I would suggest asking for an upper floor as there are good views to be enjoyed from many of the rooms. The staff were helpful and courteous at all times. I thoroughly recommend this hotel and hope to return one day.
Great find of a hotel!
after reading the reviews on this website we booked hotel bolsa for a long weekend break and we definitely weren't disappointed. it is in a great location, within 5 minutes walk of the river. we booked room 606 after reading an article in the Times and the view was absolutely fantastic and made the hotel really good value for money. would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a comfortable hotel in porto
Lovely hotel in a great location
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Hotel da Bolsa. The staff were friendly and very obliging and didn't laugh at my attempts at speaking Portugese. The room was spotlessly clean and very quiet with a spectacular view of the cathedral.
The location is excellent, being close to the river and its restaurants and bars and also to the station and shops. I was very pleasantly surprised by the price, very reasonable for this level of service and facilities.
I wish I had stayed longer and if I ever make it back to Porto, I won't hesitate to book in again.
Excellent location for the tourist; friendly, helpful staff; good standard of accommodation.
Obrigado, Hotel da Bolsa
Wasn't sure what kind of welcome to expect as we comprised six blokes on a football trip to Euro 2004 and, in such circumstances, hotels have been known to mysteriously lose reservations. Not here, though, where we were treated like kings despite regularly rolling in, worse for wear, at 4am and not leaving our rooms until mid-afternoon. Comfortable bedrooms, courteous staff, prime location for the Ribeira bars and restaurants. Highly recommended.
Hotel Da Bolsa-What a Find!
We spent 8 nights in this hotel during August 2002-it was one of the best value hotels we have stayed in! Housed in the old stock exchange building, it is perched on a hill in the centre of Porto overlooking the Douro, The hotel was a delight. Very friendly and accomodating staff-nothing was too much trouble. We decided to treat ourselves and booked one of the superior rooms at the top of the hotel. We got a mini suite! Bedroom, living room and 2 bathrooms with a superb view and all for under 100 euros per night! The rooms was so quiet, we had to set the alarm to get ourselves up in time for breakfast (which was very good). All in all, a delightful and very comfortable hotel with lots of character. We would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone
