Classic opulence in the heart of the city.

Overlooking Porto’s main square, Praça da Liberdade in the city’s historic district, this elegant 105 room hotel boasts old world luxury in a newly renovated 18th century palace. 

Entering the lobby, the sleek marble inlay floors, roman columns and black and white chandeliers reinforce the inviting classic style that is carried throughout the property.

Welcomed with a plate of the city’s famous pasteis de nata, the large executive rooms offer contemporary style mixed with nods to its palatial past (think crown moulding, and belle époque bedside tables).

A soft teal, blue and light brown colour scheme and marble bathroom with pretty Agraria amenities provides a comforting respite. Slender French doors lead to a balcony which overlooks the square below – an ideal view to wake up to and perfect for people watching.
