An introduction to Porto Boutique Hotel

How would you describe Porto Boutique Hotel in a nutshell?

Right in the city centre you will find our beautiful and charming Porto Boutique Hotel. With 12 guestrooms it is a rather small hotel in an old Portuguese house, which we have introduced to a contemporary approach. You‘ll find that it gracefully combines private and public areas, there is a garden and terrace for those who enjoy relaxing outside. And inside you’ll find big windows and mid-century furnishings. Only a few steps from the house are some of the best sights and public transport can easily take you to those that are a bit further away.

Please tell us a bit about how the idea of opening a boutique hotel in Porto started.

My boyfriend and I love antiques which eventually lead to the idea to restore this building and turn it into a boutique hotel. The building is 100 years old and has not been altered structurally so it has very spacious rooms, each including a dressing and a living room, and some of them featuring a balcony as well.

We also have a beautiful garden and our restaurant, which at lunchtime lets our guests experience the lively ambience of the city and in the late afternoon and evening is perfect enjoy quiet and relaxing moments.

Your boutique hotel is also part of the art scene in Porto. Please tell us a bit about that.

Every other month there are lots of gallery openings leading to a great street party on Rua Miguel Bombarda. During that time we too open our exhibition space on the 3rd floor of the boutique hotel, which is managed by illustration gallery Dama Aflita.

In your opinion, what is the secret of being a good host?

I have 10 years of experience in the traditional hotel industry. For me it is all about the enjoyment of receiving people and here in such a small hotel, it is even more personal and each guest and each arrival tells a different story.

To you personally, what has been most rewarding about running a small boutique hotel?

The most satisfying aspect about the whole project are the bonds and relationships we have been able to create with our holiday guests.

How would you like your holiday guests to remember their stay?

I would like our guests to remember an old Portuguese house that has gained a second life and offers a cozy environment and an unpretentious atmosphere.

Porto Boutique Hotel reviews

Verfied Welcome Beyond stay
A strong 5 rating: The stay was - just as last time at this place - wonderful. We we're given a very warm welcome. Staff and facilities were exceptional. The room was tidy and of very nice design. We enjoyed our stay a lot and are looking forward to coming again.

A clear 5! An absolute gem. The interior is decorated and Mayntained with an exceptional attention to detail. The rooms are spacious and all with a character of their own. I was kindly given the opportunity to see a few of the free rooms. The staff is very helpful and warm while taking care of their guests. The breakfast variety was not as vast maybe as in other hotels but food was fresh and of fine quality. Since it is a historic building maybe not ideal if you have difficulties taking some stairs to your room. For those who are looking forward to stay at a place that treats them like home right in the spot you want to be in Porto: go there! Highly recommended.

Very good! The location and rooms are excellent. Great breakfast and lovely garden. However, the best part was the staff! They were wonderful with the suggestions they offered and with help making bookings. Would love to stay here again!

We enjoyed our stay in Porto and the welcome cocktail was a particularly nice gesture. It was also good value for money. The only let down was the weather! On a scale of one to ten, I'd go for an 8.5.

The location of Porto Boutique Hotel

Porto Boutique Hotel is right in the city centre, on Rua Miguel Bombarda, which is a dynamic mix of contemporary art galleries, traditional commerce and alternative trade. A step further are some of the most famous sights, such as the beautiful gardens of Palácio de Cristal and Museo Nacional Soares dos Reis. The city of Porto is well-sized, with character and lots of things to explore and experience. Downtown is especially enticing with its attractive buildings, historic monuments, theaters, busy street markets, cafés, restaurants and bars.

When is the best time to visit Porto?

The best months for a holiday in Porto are between March and October, with more tourists in July and August and harvest time in the Douro in September and October.
