It's better than dull stained brown like most buildings in Romania.

It would have looked better if they did a complete restoration and not just a paint job. And like I said the photos are oversaturated meaning the red is less bright in reality.

Awesome what has been done with the theater, not a big fun of the color used on the hotel

Lovely renovations in Porto!!
To be a little picky, I'd have loved to see a neon B&B sign, to imitate the previous neon
But it looks great, very tidy, a bit like Polish cities!

Thanks Jasper!

The old neon was a sign of a long gone era. Most, if not all, of those signs in Portugal are gone now.
