The staff at this establishment is beyond fabulous. Each and every staff member went out of their way to make us feel welcome and spoke English well. The rooms are beyond beautiful with stunning views over the river and each have an individual theme. The flower room, breakfast and dinning room has the best view of Porto. Nothing is too much effort for the staff they went beyond making our trip special. The lady at reception assisted us (on short notice) to arrange for a private tour of Porto which was absolutely worth it. Parking is no problem here. The staff member parked our car for us and on the day we left they collected our car, baggage already packed. Unbelievable service with a smile! This hotel was the highlight of our stay in Portugal. The food in the restaurant was so tasteful and a piece of art. The signature ice-cream coffee drink in the bar is a MUST HAVE!
We loved everything about this hotel! The only negative thing was the crowded pool area.. But you could still enjoy a drink in the pool with the best view in Porto!
The design aesthetics were appealing and excellent staff .Good quality bed linens
Views are breathtaking! Hotel has a superbe design concept - it’s a pleasure to stay at it!
Our room was extremely small - but very cute though
We absolutely loved staying at Torel Avantgarde. From the moment we walked in we knew we would. First, the lobby smelled wonderful! The staff promptly greeted us as the bellman whisked our luggage to our room. Knowing we had flew in they had us relax and provided complimentary glasses of wine and chocolates. It was definitely a great start to what would be two very full days in Porto! We enjoyed our wine on the deck overlooking the Douro River and the surrounding towns. Our bartender and server were very welcoming and made sure we were well taken care of. The room was exactly as expected according to photos on the web site. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. I love the concept that every room is named after a great artist! Great water pressure in the shower and a magnified mirror with a light near the sink was a nice extra touch. We set out to find a restaurant the first evening we arrived and ended up going back to the hotel to eat at their restaurant, Digby's. Our meal was delicious and the entire staff was very friendly. Of course, we also had to have a cocktail in the "flower" room which is an amazing space! We even decided to treat ourselves to massages the morning before we left. My husband had a back and leg massage which was perfect after all of the walking we'd been doing.
I would only mention that you should make sure your shower door is closed properly as we had a little lake of water in the bathroom our first morning - oops!
