Overview

Porto Palacio Congress Hotel & Spa is a modern 5-star property in the Boavista district, 10 minutes' walk from the striking Casa da Música, Porto's main concert hall. The historic centre, including sights like Porto Cathedral and UNESCO-listed Ribeira Square, are 15 minutes away by taxi or 30 minutes by public transport.

The hotel is on the Avenida da Boavista -- the city's longest avenue, which runs from Mouzinho de Albuquerque Square to the ocean. There are several sights within 10 minutes' walk of the hotel, including the Botanical Garden (free entry until 6pm), a 10-acre site managed by Porto's university, and Agramonte Cemetery -- "one of Porto's most beautiful" cemeteries, says Lonely Planet, which suggests visiting in spring to see the camellias and magnolias in flower. For a taste of local life, take a 15-minute stroll to the Mercado Bom Sucesso, the neighbourhood's food and flower market (closed Sunday). Bessa Stadium, home to Boavista FC, is a 10-minute walk from the hotel. The hotel is 15 minutes' walk from Casa da Música & Francos Metro stations, which provide connections to the historic district in 10 minutes.

The hotel has two restaurants (international and Japanese) and a beer house. There is also a rooftop lounge bar with views of the city and the Douro River. The hotel's large health club offers spa treatments and has two indoor pools, a Jacuzzi, a sauna, a Turkish bath, a gym and squash courts.

Executive Rooms are on the third-15th floors, and many have good city views. Wi-Fi is free.
