Porto Suites are an exquisitely designed small hotel with elegant and spacious veranda rooms in the cultural centre of Porto — for discerning travellers, made by travellers.
How would you describe Duas Portas in a nutshell?
Duas Portas is a perfect mix of three things — good architecture, caring service and a great location. It is a small boutique hotel a few steps from the river and only 10 mins from Porto city centre.
What is the story behind Duas Portas?
Duas Portas is a family business. We all grew up in this part of Porto and it started when my uncle bought the place and my mum designed the buildings and interior spaces. My aunt, my brother-in-law Miguel and I have been running the guesthouse for the last three years.
How would you describe the atmosphere and what makes Duas Portas special?
It has a minimalist atmosphere while at the same time being comfortable, warm and cosy. I feel like it’s an authentic way to stay. It offers all the comforts of a hotel coupled with an atmosphere where guests feel at home.
The architecture allows for the connection between past and present, offering tradition with comfort. The decoration follows the same line, combining design pieces with furniture exclusively designed for the project. You’ll find attention to detail, from the colours and textures to the materials, creating harmony and simplicity as a whole.
Is Duas Portas suitable for couples or families with children?
Both. There’s definitely a romantic atmosphere here due to the river views but children of all ages are also welcome.
