Visitar-porto.com provides up-to-date information about all Hotels, Pousadas, Apartments, Guesthouses and Hostels in Porto. In such a cosmopolitan and exciting city, it is hard to pick the right accommodation. Modern hotels offer great services and restaurants, as well as high-quality facilities and amenities. So why choose one hotel over another? Apart from their modern concept, five-star quality service, wonderful restaurants, comfortable and elegant rooms and personalised and friendly service, the hotels we have chosen for you distinguish themselves for their strategic location and competitive rates.

You can be sure that you will be sleeping in one of the most elegant, accessible, central hotels in the whole city, allowing you to reach your business conference, sightseeing objectives, cultural events, the beach or city centre in just a matter of minutes. We have thought about all the reasons why you would visit this city and chosen the hotels in Porto that will best suit your holiday or business travel, as well as the best apartments, hostels, guesthouses and Villas.

The Avenida da Boavista is the principal artery that connects the beach to the city’s central roundabout. Alongside the avenue are hip new restaurants, conference centres, luxury clothing brands, the City Park and luxurious residential apartments. If you are looking for the hip new places in town, for some shopping and to be located in an easily accessible area, the Porto Palácio Congress Hotel & Spa is perfect. Whether you are travelling on business, with family, in a group or on your own, all of the city’s attractions are easily reached from this hotel, either by car or with public transport. If looking for a guesthouse on Avenida da Boavista, there is the Koolhouse Porto, a historic house with a garden that is very near the Music House (Casa da Música). If you have preference for a hostel, So Cool Hostel Porto has a cozy atmosphere and a garden where you can relax, and is just a five minute walk from the Rotunda da Boavista.

The Bessa district is a quiet residential area at the top of the main Avenue. This is an upcoming neighbourhood, with new shops and modern buildings springing around. If you are looking to be in a quiet area, yet not far from both the city centre and the beach front, the BessaHotel is just the place.  

The area of the Ribeira is right in the heart of the historical city. With its characteristic houses, local restaurants, small souvenir shops, and unbeatable riverside location, UNESCO has classified many parts of the Ribeira as a World Heritage. One of these buildings is the Pestana Vintage Porto Hotel, which overlooks the waters of the Douro River and the famous wine lodges on the other side. The main cultural attractions are a stone's throw away. In this area there are also holiday apartments for rent, as the 1872 River House, which offers panoramic views of the Ribeira and Vila Nova de Gaia. Here you can also find the Dixo's Oporto Hostel, with modern decor and all the amenities you need, or ExtendALL, a guesthouse with minimalist style but very welcoming.

Long gone are the days that the historical centre of Porto was a calm and lifeless place. Stylish shops, large spacious restaurants, renovated old houses transformed into new bars, local produce markets, theatres, cafés, high-street stores, blue tiled churches next to 19th century buildings and old trams running alongside hybrid buses are the common life of the city now. It is in the middle of all this that you will find the Hotel Teatro, an old theatre restored into a contemporary hotel. If you want other accommodation alternatives, in the heart of the city there is also the guesthouse Casa Formosa, the Wine Hostel Porto or the Taipas Apartments.

The south bank of the Douro River, where lies Vila Nova de Gaia, also has several points of interest such as the Port wine cellars or the fantastic and extensive yellow sandy beaches. As for the accommodation, here lies the magnificent hotel The Yeatman Oporto, ideal for wine lovers, since it has the most comprehensive cellar of Portuguese wines in the world!
