Hotel description

Wow, what a beautiful historic hotel! If you are planning to spend your Portugal vacation or maybe only a weekend in Porto, don’t miss out on the Pousada do Porto - Palácio do Freixo. This original 5 star hotel is housed by both a historic city palace (Palácio do Freixo) and an adjacent old factory building. Stylish bedrooms, great hotel facilities and some magical views over the Douro River put this luxury hotel on top of the list for any kind of city break to Porto.
Pousada do Porto - Palácio do Freixo
Being split up into a public spaces area and an accommodation area, each set in a building of completely different epochs and former uses is what makes this 5 star spa hotel an interesting place. The combination of both is unique in the world: The palace itself houses the reception, the restaurant and a fabulous historic parlor used as a communal lounge. The old factory building holds approximately 90 stylish rooms, some of which boast supreme views over the Douro river and the Freixo bridge. In addition, the luxury hotel offers its own spa area and a lovely outdoor pool on the river’s edge.
Staying at the Pousada do Porto
The historic hotel in Porto comprises a total of 87 guestrooms decorated in cheerful colours. It’s definitely worth booking into a river view room if you get the chance! The most impressive room is the Pousada’s Special Suite on the top floor, also with views of the Douro river.
Special features
When the weather is fine the outdoor pool of the spa hotel is a splendid place to relax. On a wooden deck one can watch the boats go by from a high quality lounger. On cooler days you will find yourself sitting in a comfy armchair of the historic lounge marveling at the stunningly beautiful frescoes all around you.
