Delightful hotel

Greetings - we have just learned that the RS tour hotel Descobartes in Porto cannot accommodate us past the tour. Does anyone have a recommendation for someplace similar in Porto? We wanted to stay on for a few days to see more of the City. Or maybe that isn't even a good plan? Advice welcomed!

I stayed at Moov Centro, really like the location. It was a basic no frills place, in RS book.

They own the entire building.
Great AirBnB. We really enjoyed our stay.
"An excellent location in the oldest part of Porto conveniently near many restaurants and tourist venues. We would stay here again. The photos are accurate and representative. The view from the balcony is beautiful. Early check-in and a cheerful welcome.
+ Awesome view from the living room.
+ Hair dryer for the person who uses one.
0 Kitchen is bit small. We cooked an omelette for breakfast, but would not attempt dinner.
- Small bathroom and shower. It really needs to be 15+ cm wider.
- No A/C. It would have made one night more comfortable.
- Double bed. We prefer queens."

Porto is a beautiful city with lots to see, so a few days after the tour would be great. You might have a look at Hotel da Bolsa which is in a nice part of town. I found the room to be very modern and comfortable, the staff were wonderful and they serve a good breakfast. As I recall, there's an agency across the street from the hotel that sells tour bus and excursion tickets.
