Where to stay in Porto

Portugal's second city offers a healthy variety and quantity of accessible accommodations. The historical city center on the northern bank of the River Douro teems with hotel options, ranging from budget-friendly hostels and guesthouses, which often have shared rooms, to upscale, luxury hotels housed in larger buildings and packed with amenities. All of these options place you conveniently close to the town's main sights, including churches, historical squares, and more. On top of that, many hotels on the northern bank boast good views from their hilltop vantage points. If you want to save big on cost, it's worth considering a more low-key hostel or small hotel on the less-popular southern bank.

  • Well worth a visit. Very impressive rooms. It was nice to have a guided tour so you could learn the history. Would have been nice if the groups were a bit smaller and the tour was a bit longer but still well worth the money!
  • Only guided tours. It takes around 30 minutes to see it. Be prepared for fantastic interior! And I mean it! It's really worth seeing! Along with chamber that is the last one on a tour list and was decorated with 20 kilos of gold. See attached picture, but it's not even close to reality! Go and see it!
  • Place closed for private function April 24 to 27 but nothing on website saying this. Came specifically to Porto to see this and 2 other places. If knew closed, would have changed dates here but cannot now. Poor administration of website !
  • Cool place to visit. A must see in Porto. I paid 7 euros entrance. The visit os made with a guide
  • It was okay. Not too expensive, but ive seen better, and you have to be on a guided tour and i couldn't hear the guide bc her voice wasn't loud enough.
