Carris Hotel Porto
The Carris Hotel Porto was a bit of a pleasant surprise. The very reasonable prices attracted our curiosity and we had low expectations, but found it to be an excellent cost x benefit choice of stay in Porto. The location is perfect: in the heart of town, basically “on the corner” of Ribeira and at the same time walking distance to many of the city’s attractions. The rather plain exteriors are upgraded nicely into modern and fashionable ambiences inside, including a bar and old stonewalls in some common areas. Wooden floors and neutral hues in the accommodation bring a relaxing atmosphere to your stay. The rooms are of acceptable size with comfortable beds and we recommend requesting one with views to the city’s iconic iron bridge over Porto or the terraces overlooking the Douro. As the hotel is located in the city center there is no parking at the building, but rather some blocks away.
