More Room Types

The Artist Porto Hotel & Bistro is a boutique hotel housed in a former art school, with 17 individually designed rooms. It's less than a 10-minute walk from the centre of Porto and its main attractions, including the Coliseum, the mosaic-covered Chapel of Almas and the colourful Bolhão Market, which sells everything from fruit and vegetables to fine linens and souvenirs. Try one of the upstairs cafes for grilled sardines and local wine.

Named one of the hot destinations to visit in 2015 by The Guardian, Porto is known for its "cobbled lanes, pretty squares and beautiful buildings tumbling down to the river". Take a boat trip along the Douro River (a 20-minute walk away) and be sure to sample some port in one of the city's riverside wine caves. The Avenida dos Aliados -- a long, tree-lined boulevard with historic buildings, including City Hall and its tall bell tower -- is less than a kilometre from the hotel.

There’s a lounge featuring modern artworks, a stylish bistro that serves a 5-, 7- or 9-course tasting menu for dinner, as well as a weekly lunch menu. The hotel also has a cocktail bar with comfortable sofas and armchairs, subtle lighting and muted grey walls.

Contemporary, air-conditioned rooms are on the large side and have free Wi-Fi, mini bars and flat-screen TVs with cable channels. The suite offers even more space and has a separate living area with a sofa bed.
