If you are looking for a place to enjoy your time in the city, Porto is currently one of the places that has the largest offer in terms of local accommodation and hotels. The city has undergone profound changes in order to meet the needs of those who pass here. Torel 1884 Suites & Apartments is a modern hotel offering luxury accommodation in the historic building of an emblematic late 19th-century palace. Located right in the center of the city, with 12 rooms and 11 apartments, decorated with exotic themes inspired by the voyages of Portuguese navigators through lands of Africa, Asia and America.
Hotel with 10 charming rooms and author restaurant at the same time, Cocorico – Luxury Guesthouse and Restaurant is the testimony of a long love and friendship story between France and Portugal. In an old building close to Batalha, well restaured in keeping with its original design, the elegant decoration of Marie Christine Mecoen stands out, full of tasteful details.
Opened in late 2016, myhomeinporto is a guesthouse with only three rooms but with tasteful details that make all the difference. Juan de Mayoralgo it’s owner, takes care of pampering us with homemade cake; serving breakfast and dinner in the garden whenever the weather allows, or if not in the cozy dining room; using local products such as Avintes “broa”, fresh bread, Portuguese cheeses, fresh seasonal fruit.
With an intimate atmosphere, unique architecture and privileged location, Duas Portas (“Two Doors”) is one of those spaces that fancy us and is worth to experience in a visit to Porto by all those who like to stay in a different and cozy place, with all the amenities of a hotel but with that “something more”, a personalized service, careful and attentive to its guests.
A building of the second half of the 19th century, located in the most trendy neighbourhood in town known for its artistic atmosphere, with art galleries and creative studios, restaurants and alternative shops, has been extraordinarily well restored to host the guest house A Bela Aurora.
With a breathtaking view, the Oh! Porto apartments are an original option to take into account for a different stay in the city, allowing the unique experience of living as a local “tripeiro” in a house with a contemporary and minimalist design. At the intersection of the ancient staircases of the Verdades (Truths) and the Barredo is the Casa dos Arcos, a building that has been rehabilitated preserving the exterior traces and has given new life to four wonderful modern apartments – the Arco Apartments with a typology of T0 to T2 – and a wine bar with a cozy atmosphere. With privileged views to the Ribeira, the D. Luís bridge and the river Douro, where the variations of the sunshine makes it unique and always a different experience.
