Hotels in Porto

Planning a trip to Porto? Skyscanner can find you the best deals on Porto hotels and help save you some cash on your flights to Porto.

Porto is a lovely higgledy-piggledy jumble of colourful houses, medieval alleys, baroque churches and elegant boulevards. In the heart of Porto lies the Ribeira district, a UNESCO World Heritage site where locals chatter in the village plazas and lively local shops sell their melt in the mouth Portuguese delights.

Porto hotels cater for every budget. The Wine Hostel provides cheap accommodation in the city centre while the Residencial Marfim is just a five minute walk away with excellent customer service. The Grand Hotel de Povoa is thirty minutes from the centre, near the beach, or if you prefer, there is the Vila Galé Porto on the bustling Rua de Santa Caterina, Porto’s liveliest shopping district. The Tiara Park Atlantic Porto supplies luxury accommodation in the heart of the city centre but wine buffs might prefer the grand Yeatman Hotel in the Port Wine Cellars District, with its own wine cellar. The Grand Hotel de Paris, opened in 1877, is the oldest hotel in Porto and a reasonably priced choice in the old town.

Haggle in downtown Baxia’s Mercado do Bolhão or relax with a glass of port in the enchanting Livraria Lello bookshop with its beautiful spiral staircase. Walk the Ribeira riverfront, visit the Museum of Sacred Art and Archaeology or kick back in the magical gardens of the Pavilhão Rosa Mota. There are river cruises, port tasting tours, art workshops and wonderful places to shop for designer labels and traditional goods.

Porto has had a restaurant revival and now boasts some of the best places to eat in Portugal. The pastry shops are second to none while the city’s clubs often stay open until the early hours of the morning. Porto is the place to unwind and enjoy a slower pace of life, filled with the haunting melody of Portuguese Fado, that drift in and out of the narrow, winding streets.

Did you know..?

Considered to be one of the ten best sandwiches in the world, the Francesinha is a must try when in Porto.  It is a toasted affair stuffed with local meats, cheese and a spicy sauce, topped with French fries. One is sure to keep you going for the whole day!

There are actually nine countries that speak the Portuguese language; Portugal, Brazil, Cape Verde, Angola, Guinea Bissau, Mozambique, Principe, Sao Tome e Principe, and Equatorial Guinea.

Little known by tourists, the Torre dos Clerigos tower is a beautiful romantic spot that enjoys glorious panoramic views across the city.
