The Yeatman Hotel in Vila Nova de Gaia, on the other side of the Douro River, has one of the most amazing hotel views in Porto. Our stay at this hotel was one of our best experiences in the city and our high expectations were completely met, and possibly exceeded. The property is ample and upscale with jaw-dropping views, first class service and superb food. L’Orangerie restaurant is outstanding and breakfast is served over unforgettable views of the Douro and Porto’s Ribeira. There are seventy beautiful and spacious guestrooms, named after Douro Valley vineyards. Coincidentally, our room had the name of the quinta (wine producers and guesthouses) we were heading to a few days later in the Douro Valley. The very comfortable rooms have a classic and tasteful décor and sizeable bathrooms. Do not miss the swimming pool, considered to have one of the best views in the whole of Europe, and make the most of your stay with some wine tasting, on a starry night on the terraces overlooking Porto. Some days at The Yeatman will undoubtedly be in your memories for years to come.
