Since I arrived so late last night, I decided to sleep in until 9 this morning. This delayed my touring so in order to see as much as possible and get an overview of the city, I opted for one of the Hop On/Hop Off buses. Yes, one of those quinessential tourist conveyances at which I am confident all the locals roll their eyes and laugh. The double- …
... informed us that JK Rowling had lived in Porto for three years and there are assumptions made that some of Porto inspired Harry Potter. Some things include the book store they have there, that is named the third most beautiful book store in the world. It has windy stairs like in Harry Potter and gives you the magical vibe. The dress codes the students wear to attend Porto school was a long black cape overtop of their uniforms as well ...
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.

... a posh hotel than a Maccy D's! Finally we walked all the way through towards the river where there is a bridge you can walk over and you can see the most amazing views of Porto. It was the best feeling, just standing there for a while, taking it all in. It was the first time i have really felt like im travelling. An unforgettable moment for me. Later we take the bus to Cabacieras de basto where we will be picked up from our next ...
... highway that bisects Portugal and connects to Salamanca in Spain, a step into Cambra de Baixo is a step way back in time. This beautiful village is the stuff of Hollywood sets, so perfect is its preservation of old, living Portugal.

Historical Traveler Reviews Eurostars Das Artes Porto
We stayed at this hotel for a long weekend in May - it is virtually brand new so is in fantastic condition. The rooms were clean, bright and airy with plenty of space. The bar area has a lovely outside deck where we enjoyed coffee in the morning and an early evening drink. Breakfast was not included but at 9 euros for the most fantastic full spread we thought it was excellent value. Porto is really cheap so if you are on a budget you could easily find a cheaper breakfast in one of the many cafes around.
This hotel was a great price for such a modern, gorgeous place. Definitely get the breakfast booked with your room - it was a great spread in a very nice room. The bar is also nice at the end of the day. Our room seemed brand-new and I loved the minimilast decor and all-marble bathroom. It is a short, hilly walk to the sights of Porto if you are a tourist, although you must go down by the river for dinner - there are not too many places to eat right around the hotel. We had great service. We got there early and our room was not ready, so the hotel people told us a good place to get lunch and everything was ready when we got back. I will look for other hotels in this chain on my trips in the future. It doesn't have the river view, but if you want a modern, clean hotel for a good price, this place will not disappoint.
We recently booked a room at this hotel. After a long trip from Lisbon and an agony ride through Portol to find the Hotel we finally arrrived at the Eurostar. There were a number of people at the reception desk looking very glum. When it was our turn to check in we find out the reason for this. The hotel had over booked through the internet and was sending around 10 couples to another hotel in a new area of Porto.
Great Hotel, Brand New
Had a weekend break there & it was perfect.
Beutifully fitted out rooms, great breakfast buffet with wide selection of cold meats cheeses, pasteries, also hot selection.
Got a great deal on the hotels own website eurostars hotels.
Will certainly go again.
We stayed at the Eurostars Das Artes for 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were excellent - helpful and knowledgable whether it was checking out which football team was playing or recommending a resturant. As previosly mentioned it is a bit of a walk to the Ribeira (downhill) but it is close to the 18 tram and taxis are cheap coming back (up hill). Because it's out of the way the restaurants round about had great, good value food and were tourist free.
I loved this hotel!!!!! and I have travelled a lot through Europe (for work and personal) so have seen a wide variety of standards. It was new and so felt like a five star even though we paid 4 star prices. Design and service from staff and spaciousness were all fantastic. It was a particular contrast from Lisbon where we probably paid almost 40% more for a supposed 5 star hotel, but which was terribly run down and more like a 2.5 star!!!! Eurostars is a 15 min walk downhill to the river, but well located near one of the main pedestrian shoppng strips. It all added to the overall lovely experience we had in Porto and we would love to come back to the city and also stay in the same hotel.
This was an amazing hotel - beautifully designed, large luxurious rooms with great black out blinds (a must for an insomniac like me!) Bathrooms were large, the staff were wonderful and the breakfast was great - esp the custard tarts! AND SO CHEAP!
A bit of a walk to the river and the main area of the town but that meant it was quiet.
Had a wonderful 3 days here, Port cellars, great seafood, and a cheap hotel. I would definitely stay again.
This 84 room hotel just opened in the summer of 2005. Very good sized room with bright sparkling bath. "New smell" of wood furniture and wood built-in closets. Comfortable bed.
Top notch stay in Porto
Exceptionally nice decor throughout the hotel, all tastefully done.
Room was very clean and all the facilities in the room were spot on. The bed was very comfortable (about the most comfortable we had in Portugal) and big (as wide as it is long!!).
The rate we got was very good, probably because they have only just opened in the last 3 months.
The area is also fine and we came across a great burger bar/diner on the same road.
I woudl definitely recommend this place.
A good surprise!
Definitively a good surprise! Just opened, well refined, smartly equipped and well furnished with dark wood large rooms and marble bathrooms. Staff helpful and smiling. Very good value for money, almost at the moment: promotional rate (50/60€ per night BB) is quite easy to find out. Plus: very good buffet breakfast with hand made pastries and FREE PARKING! Please note, the hotel is quite close to central and commercial zone, but not less than 20-minute walk from Ribeira: so, if you have the car, this hotel will be an excellent choice, while if you're travelling without car it is better you start training your legs!
