We arrived late to the hotel but our room was ready. Front desk receptionist gave us good recommendations for restaurants in walking distance. Layout of the room was odd with 3 stairs going up into the bedroom area and no room to leave bags. Beds...More

Wow, what a great hotel! Wonderful location, wonderful staff, clean, historic rooms, make for a very romantic visit. The location in Foz is wonderful for being quite, yet very close o not only the city’s attractions, but also the ocean!

About
Description
Hotel Boa-Vista reserves for you the privilege of being the only Hotel in Foz, the noble part of the city, where the Douro river meets the Atlantic ocean. Here you are far away from the hustle and bustle, but More close enough to everything.The Historic Centre can be quickly reached along the waterfront, offering views of the natural beauty of the river and its imposing bridges.When returning to Foz, you can enjoy the walk between the river and the sea, cross the romantic Passeio Alegre garden and admire the 16th century architecture of S. Joao Fort, just across from the hotel. After the piers and lighthouses at the Douro’s bar, the sophisticated atmosphere of the modern outdoor cafes overlooking the sea is well worth a visit. Less

I used Booking com without any problems (around June this year). No real explanation why you are having difficulties, sorry.

Hi I agree with previous answer-think you'd need to go into Porto and then out again. Taxi was cheap and if you're staying at the Bia Vista ask them to arrange a taxi for you and they'll tell you the price.
