5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
the reviews are true: amazing hotel and view
I don't have much to add, but the view is really very very nice. Viana da Castelo is certainly worth a visit too. It has a nice old city center between railway station and the river. With the elevator, 3 euro per person for a return ticket, everything is on walking distance even from this high located hotel.
