Rising from Avenida da Boavista, the 251-room Porto Palacio is a modern city sanctuary set among the spoils of historic Oporto. Interiors project a sexy simplicity, with sumptuous fabrics, geometric crystal chandeliers and richly textured wallpapers softening minimalist dark wood, glass and metal furnishing throughout. Dining options include a fresh take on traditional beer-hall eats at Portobeer, teppanyaki-style Japanese at Góshò Restaurant, and a glass-walled VIP Lounge offering city panoramas. The hotel’s full-service spa features a Beauty Lab salon and Turkish bath, while a stocked fitness center and two indoor pools round out the property’s health and wellness offerings.
In the Area
Deemed a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the city of Oporto serves up big-city retail and modern attractions amid an historic and fairytale-like setting. Cruise the River Douro, or embark on a full-day wine tasting tour in the Douro Valley to experience the flavor of the region. Visit the Casa da Música for a show and a peek at impressive area architecture, or check out the vast, revolving collection of art at the Serralves Museum. Whatever you do, spend at least a day wandering the charming city streets, exploring local markets and experiencing the day-to-day buzz of this Old World European hub.
How to Get There
This is a very good hotel.its further out than we realised but there is a bus stop just outside which is 2euros ( pay on the bus) for a one way trip into town as well as a taxi rank opposite (7 euros approx for one trip) The hotel has very friendly staff,a great breakfast and a fabulous bar/ restaurant on the 19th floor.The dinner they serve is a buffet for 27 euros served at 8pm each night.The choice of food is quite small in the downstairs bar but good.There is a supermarket next door to the hotel too
The whole of personnal was very caring, al listen to me, thanks for you professional behaviour.
The restaurant was very tasty and the view was very wonderful and amazing
I ll come back in september 2020
Wonderful stay where everything was made to make me feel special.
The hotel and staff are impeccable. This is also a lovely location for the venue and the executive lobby on the top floor gives you a memorable view of Porto.
Loved it and highly recommended.
