Hotels: Enroute Lisbon to Porto, Porto and Salamenca

We are a mid-50s couple traveling with another couple the beginning of April, starting in Lisbon. After a few days there, we’re renting a car and heading to Porto, then will head to Salamanca.

We’re interested in a hotel recommendations for somewhere between Lisbon and Porto, Porto and Salamenca.

Hotels currently under consideration include:

1) Porto: https://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g189180-d3326303-Reviews-Cale_Guest_House-Porto_Porto_District_Northern_Portugal.html; https://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g189180-d10151381-Reviews-The_House_Ribeira_Porto_Hotel-Porto_Porto_District_Northern_Portugal.html.

2). Salamenca: https://www.nh-hotels.com/hotel/nh-salamanca-palacio-de-castellanos.

3). Need hotel recommendations for trip between Lisbon and Porto.

I’d appreciate any input my fellow Rick Steves travelers would have to offer - thank you!

Between Lisbon and Porto, visit Coimbra. Stay at Quinta de las Lagrimas.
The Pousadas are excellent choices all over Portugal. Their restaurants are very good too. www.pousadas.pt.

Where will you end your trip? There are large fees for dropping a rental car off in a different country.
