An introduction to Duas Portas

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.

Duas Portas reviews

5 of 5 stars
Verfied Welcome Beyond stay
We had a delightful stay at Duas Portas. So sad it was only for the one night (due to a change in our flights). A very genuine welcome and the opportunity to sit in the garden to plan our last day in Porto was perfect.The room and bathroom was clean and well appointed. The whole styling of the hotel was very calm with a chilled vibe. We were offered a drink and custard tart and then shown where the honesty bar was.
The bedlinen was the softest I have every encountered! We had a lovely day exploring by the river and just enjoyed sitting at a local bar by the beach watching the waves. We had a hideous early start and stafff kindly arranged our airport transfer which collected us on time and was very reasonable.They also left us a bag of snacks and drinks as we would miss breakfast. All in all, we had a lovely time and looking forward to ur return visit one day.x

Verfied Welcome Beyond stay
The staff is very friendly and helpful. Messages are followed up quickly and adequately. The hotel is well located with a lot of charming restaurants nearby where you can eat well. The design is minimalist and very succesful. The hotel offers that extra: a good bed with comfortable bedding, a nice breakfast with ample choice, nespresso coffee, the availability of a number of good wines & portos,..
Highly recommended!

Verfied Welcome Beyond stay
Our stay at the Duas Portas in Porto was the kind of experience we search for in every boutique hotel, but have rarely found executed so well. The building itself was beautiful, humble and thoughtful details, our room overlooked a sunken stone courtyard and lush yard where our 3 year old and 1 year old enjoyed letting off steam. The staff was incredibly warm and accommodating, offering advice on local eats and sights. The breakfast at the Duas Portas was the best we sampled on our two week trip though Portugal. Fresh breads, jams, meats, yogurt, fruit— there was an abundance of delicacies available if requested, and little waste. This little hotel was truly thoughtful and tasteful in every way.

The location of Duas Portas

Duas Portas is located in Foz, which is situated where the Douro River meets the Atlantic Ocean. We are in the perfect location between the crowded city centre and the quietness of the ocean and the river.

We’re a 30-minute walk from the centre of Porto or around 15 minutes by bus or tram, with both bus and tram stops right outside the door. There are also plenty of restaurants within walking distance and some of the best restaurants in town, including Terra and Cafeína, which are both owned by the same guy. And very close to Foz is Matosinhos, which is another small town and well known for its incredible barbecued seafood.

I’ve lived here my entire life and it’s a very particular neighbourhood that was considered separate from Porto for many years. It originated as an old fishing village before English port wine traders established their summer retreats here so they could enjoy the beach. It has a different atmosphere from the rest of Porto, I’d say more relaxed. There are beautiful old houses, churches and narrow streets to explore, as well as a 19th-century garden, the Jardim do Passeio Alegre.

When is the best time to visit Porto?

Summer is really nice because you can enjoy both a city break and time at the beach. I also love the springtime but think that September is probably the best time to visit. Aside from the changing colours, the port wine harvest is also taking place in the Douro Valley, making it a particularly special experience.
