We decided to stay at Vincci Ponte de Ferro after staying a few nights at Vincci Porto accross the river. Just to experience something different. The hotel is only a year or 2 old and very tastefully decorated.
the rooms are super small (we had a river view superior room) but beautifully decorated with an amazing view
A/C worked great
The bathroom as modern and up to date
The restaurant and breakfast was awesome
Front desk team and restaurant/bar staff are amazing! Friendly and helpful and so nice!
Wifi was strong in the room and in the open areas
Lounge/common areas were comfortable with outlets everywhere
Cool elevator that brings you down to the bottom of the hill (this was an amazing plus to staying there)
Our room felt "dirty" on the floor. We felt like we were walking on sand. I think it was the cleaning crew, not the hotel.
The cleaning crew did not replace our towels that were on the floor but hung them back up. We had to ask for fresh towels. Again, I think it was the staff for that room area.
Rooms are so incredibly small, you can only sit at a small desk or on the bed.
Make no mistake, it's loud with a train going over the bridge, but just tune it out. after all, you are in a city!
But in the end, we highly recommend this hotel. It's quite a nice experience if the hotel could manage their cleaning staff a bit more to make the rooms cleaner, especially with the pandemic fear of germs and dirt.
