A few minutes away from the historic center and the main tourist attractions, as well as from Lordelo do Ouro, a picturesque fishing area, Vila Galé Porto Ribeira is a boutique hotel, resulting from the rehabilitation of four buildings in the area of Cais das Pedras, near the Old Customs House of Porto and about 10 kilometers from the Sá Carneiro airport. Themed after the art of painting, this hotel in Porto stands just opposite the Douro, with a superb view of the river. Completely integrated into the urban reality of Cais das Pedras, it draws on its proximity to the riverside area of Porto. ...More details

Lovely views of the river with friendly, helpful staff

Lovely views of the river. Tram line is right in front so it’s convenient if you want to get around the city, but it doesn’t run during the night so it won’t wake you. Breakfast buffet has a great selection of sweet and savoury, including an egg and pancake cooking station. Loved all the fresh, hot croissants. Room is a good size, clean and modern. Lovely courtyard with bougainvillea and vine covered walls. There’s also lots of paintings and artworks throughout the hotel hallways. Staff are very friendly and helpful. I went down to collect my Uber Eats and they handed me a plate and cutlery without even asking. Very happy with my stay here.

Wonderful quiet hotel right on the rive. A few minutes walk to the center - so perfect location. Rich and good breakfast. Adjacent to some good restaurants. The rooms were lovely, very clean and each room was named after an artist with accompanying wall art to match. The general staff concierge, breakfast staff and the barman, were all some of the best i have ever had to deal with. Very friendly and helpful. I cannot recommend the hotel enough.
Lovely place to relax

This hotel has a really relaxed feel. The staff are friendly and helpful. Our room faced the river and had a small balcony. The room is well designed, we loved the decor, and had space for all of our belongings for a 4 night stay. Everything in the room worked well, it would have been good to have a kettle and tea making equipment (we are English!). So we brought our own! There was plenty of fresh fruit, hot food and pastries-so we were happy. I enjoyed the freshly made breakfast omelettes too. The centre is a 15 minute stroll away, and the Palacio Cristal gardens-just behind the hotel. The TV had 3 news channels in English.
Few days to escape the rush....☺

We made reservations online for two river view rooms with twin beds. After walked in our rooms we found they didn’t have twin beds. We went back down to reception. Staff quickly us another two rooms with twin beds but without river view. We accept the change and they quickly refund the price difference. Very helpful staff. Our new rooms still had partial river view. Room was clean and size is ok. Met the expectations of a four star hotel. Hotel location is not bad. We liked the 20 mins walk along the river to the town centre. Tram is also at door step. I found it a bit strange to have reception and restaurant together. Breakfast was ok, a little basic.
