Accommodation In Porto
Stay amongst the sights in Porto's historical centre
Porto's historical centre is located right near the Rio Douro, a river that runs through the city. Within the historical centre stand numerous historic sites such as the Bolsa Palace, a 19th-Century palace located next to the Church of Saint Francis, which is a 15th-Century Gothic monument.
You can stay metres away from the historic sites at the Hotel da Bolsa, known for its antique style and plush rooms. For added luxuries, you might want to stay at the 4-star Pestana Porto set across 16th-, 17th- and 18th-Century buildings, and with easy access to the river cruise terminal.
Time to discover the city's namesake
Port (fortified wine) is one of Portugal's biggest exports. It was named after the city of Porto, because that's where most of the production and exportation comes from. It's easy to explore the port culture in Porto, thanks to the large amount of gastronomic establishments. You can wander from your hotel, down the city streets, ducking into a corner bar for a taste of Porto's best drops.
There are numerous hotels boasting onsite bars and restaurants where you can indulge in the flavours of port, such as the Hotel Teatro, and the 5-star Sheraton Porto Hotel & Spa and Porto Palacio Congress Hotel & Spa.
Affordable city-centre accommodation
Just because you want to stay in Porto's vibrant city centre, doesn't mean you need to spend excessive amounts of money on your lodgings, thanks to the range of budget-friendly accommodation. Save some pennies that are better spent on the fascinating historical sights, fun activities, dining experiences and nightlife.
The ibis Porto Cento places you close to restaurants, shops and attractions, but also entices you to stay inside with its relaxing bar and sumptuous rooms. The Hotel do Norte is right next to a metro station and also has bicycle hire available, making sightseeing very easy.
