Infante de Sagres is a 5-star property on the northern edge of Porto’s historic district. It’s just around the corner from the Avenida dos Aliados, one of the city’s main squares, and a short walk downhill to the narrow streets of Ribeira on the banks of the River Douro. This historic area is an UNESCO World Heritage Site and is where you’ll find the city’s main monuments and museums, including the 13th-century cathedral and the Palácio da Bolsa, the old stock exchange.
The property dates back to the 1950s, when it was one of the first luxury hotels in the city. It still has plenty of retro character, including an old-fashioned elevator and original stained-glass windows, but nowadays the overall effect is far more quirky thanks to the addition of modern art, vivid colours and glam avant-garde furniture.
Bedrooms are decorated in the same striking style -- expect baroque flourishes and contemporary fittings. Suites are large and more traditional. Front-facing rooms can be noisy on Friday and Saturday evenings.
A couple of doors down is the hotel’s restaurant, Book -- described as "one of Porto's hottest tables" by Lonely Planet. It is a literary-themed establishment and serves modern Portuguese cuisine, such as spider crab soup and Bacalhau à Zé do Pipo (baked cod with mashed potato and cabbage). A continental buffet is served in the grand breakfast room, back in the main hotel building. There’s also a "small but excellent spa", notes Condé Nast Traveller, with a private treatment room.
