After a gruelling endless journey here we finally arrived at 1.30pm Porto time. Exhausted and in search of accommodation we put our packs on our backs and headed for the city. The accommodation, being a sunny Saturday wasn't as easily sourced, but the ups and downs of the narrow cobbled streets produced the Hotel Da Bolsa. A very comfortable, bit …

... I encountered the famous Porto Francesinha sandwich for the first time. It is best described as a British fried breakfast covered in cheese and smothered in gravy. It is very rich and very filling. My favorite part of the experience was seeing that on the English menu you could only order the sandwich with fries while the Portuguese menu offered many options including many varieties of meat and the option to go without those extra ...

... them! Caught a taxi home as it was so hot and there was a huge protest march happening right on our street because we are about 100 metres from Parliament House. Thousands of people! Andrew, Bruce and I went out to a local restaurant (Di not feeling so well) but I didn't enjoy it very much and by the end of the evening I was feeling quite unwell again. Perhaps I had over done it during the ...

... on roads largle composed of flyovers on stilts and tunnels through deep green valleys and forests to the ancient town of Laguardia , a walled hilltop stone fortress, and on to Covarrubias, where we secure one of the few remaining campsites in the Spanish trailertrashy campsite0- only Spaniards here- it's a town little visited by other nationalities it seems, a gem of a mediaeval black-and -white timbered hilltop place, warming to this 20th century nomad lifestyle again already ...

Been so many times, but just continues to get better and better every time….no surprise it keeps winning tourism awards.
Take a step back in time and walk the cobblestone streets of this beautiful city. Let’s not forget the food!! Francesinhas, Bifana’s, Sardines, Frango and of course Natas (Portuguese tarts).

    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
