The best available hotels & places to stay near Portugal

August 7, 2022 Toi Mattera

Portugal’s Mediterranean charm is most prominent on the golden beaches of the Algarve; in the wilderness of the Azores islands; among the vineyards of Douro Valley; and on the cobbled streets of Lisbon and Porto, where old-world culture meets cosmopolitan bars and restaurants.

Friendliest Hotel Ever! Also, Beautiful, Clean and Comfortable

Reviewed By James C

We stayed at the Avenida Palace earlier this week and will return next week as well. I have stayed in many hotels, but this hotel absolutely has the friendliest staff of all. After being in Paris for week where many people are courteous, but not necessarily overly-friendly, our arrival at this hotel in Lisbon was such a treat. The people at reception, the concierge, the bell persons, the breakfast room, etc. all deserve lots of credit! The hotel is centrally located, has beautiful common rooms (actually, quite splashy), large, fancy breakfast room with amazing buffet, and up-to-date guest rooms ( a bit old-fashioned, but I'm good with that). I can't recommend this hotel highly enough, and look forward to returning next week!

We have just spent a really enjoyable week in the Mercure Porto Centro Aliados. There were 9 of us altogether. Tiago’s happy, smiling team looked after us. From the magnificent breakfast to the warm inviting pool everything was perfect. On one occasion we ate in the restaurant. Although it’s a limited menu it was delicious. The hotel is perfectly place to explode the city of Porto, although some of streets are quite steep. Thoroughly recommended.

We dined in both the Madeira and Falesia restaurant - staff are amazing in both. Breakfast excellent with lots of choice. Highly recommend and must commend the GM in the running of this hotel.

Great Location

Reviewed By nick7p

There is no doubt the Editory House is in a wonderful location in the old town right by the river, but the hotel is really a bed and breakfast as that's all that's available, no bar or restaurant. It's probably Porto but at these prices over 200 euro a night you maybe expect a little more. Our Premium room was spotless and nice at quiet at the rear of the hotel but was very small. No wishing to be too picky but it was lacking in light and also nowhere to hang your damp towels in the bathroom, which was also a little tired with the shower door not shutting. The air con in the room is not very good and having to open the small balcony doors at night resulted in seagulls screeching all night and being bitten to death my mosquitoes . The breakfasts were ok but the best feature of the hotel were the staff who were an absolute delight and helpful all the time, a credit to the hotel.

Perfect Hotel - Perfect Location - AMAZING STAFF

Reviewed By Quaniz7

Of the total reviews posted thus far, 202 liked the hotel and 9 had some sort of issue. So, what does that say about this hotel? THEY DO IT THE RIGHT WAY ! I loved my stay at this hotel and there was not one single negative thing I could comment on. The room was super spacious, the bathroom large for Europe and with a beautiful walk-in shower, lots of counter space in the bathroom, lots of closet space in the hall closet, and a super comfortable bed. For those who like to sleep in or are not into the night life, there's a flat screen TV that has 4 American TV channels and 4 English speaking movie channels. The hotel is quite clean and orderly. There is an outdoor patio to enjoy a drink or a meal. Also within minutes walk is a supermarket with fresh food & bakery, including a good selection of wines & spirits. But the best thing about the hotel is the AMAZING STAFF. They were all so terrific and made my stay even more enjoyable. Towards the end of my vacation, I had an accident while in Porto that required being taken to emergency. I arrived at the hotel at 3 a.m. bruised and in pain. The staff were so accommodating and checked in on me. To Management: You have raised the bar for many hotels to learn from -- your employees know HOSPITALITY ! YOU SHINE BRIGHT !
