      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel da Bolsa Porto

      Fantastic location in historic center

      from

      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!

      Charming Old World Hotel

      from

      We couldn't pass up the chance to stay within

      the 'world heritage' zone...and at the price, this hotel is a steal! It's a GREAT location next to the impressive stock exchange and Sao Francisco church. As first time visitors to Porto, we felt staying in the Riberia was much better than the hotels along the Aliados Ave. (which was totally under construction, by the way). We had a phenomenal view of the cathedral from the 6th floor. Cool little nooks and crannies in the room, slanted ceilings. The breakfast was actually above average compared to the other Portugal hotels we stayed in...fresh bread, fresh fruit, sweet pastries, yogurt, ham, cheese, tea, coffee, milk, cornflakes. For a country with orange trees, however, we couldn't understand the lack of fresh orange juice---"Tang" seemed to be the standard.

      Pretty, Clean & Great Value

      from

      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.

      For a shorter stay in Porto, like ours, this hotel was all we could hope for. It was extremely clean and well looked after, and the the staff was very helpful and attentive to any of our needs. The room was a good size and we had an amazing view of this gorgeous city. The hotel is located very close to the boardwalk area with lots of restaurants and places to get coffee (and they have great coffee). You can go just a bit further (but still on foot) and cross the Duro river where you can take tours of the Porto Caves.

      Porto was an add on for us where we thought, "Sure lets just see what it's about". Well, it was certainly worth the visit. We had a great time in the city & we would not hesitate to stay at the Bolsa again.

      Great Hotel

      from

      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

      from

      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!

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      Excellent location for the tourist; friendly, helpful staff; good standard of accommodation.

      Obrigado, Hotel da Bolsa

      from

      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!

      from

      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

      Driving into Porto we couldn't believe anyone would like this place. Very industrial port city and all we saw coming in was smog. We were warned the traffic would be a nightmare so stayed on the freeway as much as possible to get into the main area. of course arrived at 5.30 so timed it well for peak hour and stayed a 20 min walk into The centre. Beautiful tiled buildings, heaps of tourists, it is known as a ...

      After dinner, we took a drive out near the coast. When we got close, we could start to smell the salt from the ocean. Back in ...

      Originally built to carry road traffic on both decks, at various times it saw trams on the upper and cars on the lower. Now the top deck is occupied by Line D of the metro do Porto and a pedestrian walkway.

      This was a super cool bridge to walk over and as I looked down I could ...

      Porto - Douro River Cruise

      Today we had to be at the Vila Nove de Gaia Quay on the other side of the river at 8 a.m. for our Douro River cruise. It was an early morning, and cold out as well. When we got to the quay, it was so foggy out we couldnīt even see the river or the other bank. It was foggy for the first few hours of the cruise, and cold for most of the day, so difficult to sit out on the boat deck.
