Romantic place to stay in Porto. Part IV

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 28, 2013

We stayed four nights of May 2013 in Castelo Santa Catarina, Porto. To my mind this is the excellent hotel with the parking and nice garden with palms and other trees and flowers. There are two types of the rooms. We stayed three nights in the room situated at the castle or tower and one night in the room situated in the garden. Room in the tower definitely was reconstructed and renovated recently. Everything there is the brand new. In the best American traditions there was electric tea kettle with instant coffee, tea bags and sugar sets. Room in the castle was equipped with the central heating system. There was no air conditioner and since I stayed there in May I cannot tell you how it will be during the hot months of July and August. In May I felt quite comfortable. The shower cabin is pretty big and has enough space for the tall and big (fat) people.
Room in the garden was equipped with air conditioner and portable electric heater. That portable heater can be very useful because it would be cold during the night. Bath room was equipped with the big bathtub.
Interiors of the castle are really luxurious, breakfasts are delicious and plentiful and served and the splendid hall. The buildings walls are decorated buy the traditional Portuguese azilejos or decorative tiles.
It takes from fifteen up to twenty minutes to get historical center of Porto by walk from the hotel. Hotel itself situated between two stations of metro “Bolhao” and “Marques”.
Personal is very friendly and speak English fluently. I can recommend that hotel to stay in Porto.

Directions: Between metro stations Bolhao and Marques

--- quote from their website ---

Santa Catarina Castle, is part of the Porto romantic hotels collection.

Santa Catarina Castle, owning an unique architecture and beauty, was build on the beginning of XX century. It is surrounded by gardens and walls coated by fabulous Portuguese glazed tiles, esplanade and private parking.

From this hotel, visitors can leave for a walk in search of the fascinating historical and cultural city patrimony and the not less tempting regional gastronomy.
By the Douro river, wandering through ways where Kings and Queens used to walk around, enjoy the unparalleled view over the riverside area and visit the famous Oporto wine cellars.

Enjoy the surrounding peaceful and quiet atmosphere while you have breakfast in the esplanade, surrounded by palm trees and a flower garden listening to the little birds twittering.

Rooms, offer a private bathroom, air conditioned, and built in furniture following the style of the epoch.

Unique Quality: The particularity I like the most about this place, is its lovely garden !!! - It's very quite and enjoyable. I doubt there's any other lodging facility in Oporto with such lovely garden.
