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.

  • Came as a bit of a surprise but yes, there are beaches in Porto. If you're staying in the city get the Metro to Matosinhos Sul - the beaches are a short walk away. They're small but during our visit i...  more »
  • We found this restaurant from an article and it is fantastic!! It sits n the Atlantic and the food is delicious! Recommend the Cataplano. Lovely staff, great service.  more »
  • The views of sunset rivalled Camps Bay in South Africa. We had cocktails downstairs in beach bar and then dined upstairs in an equally fabulous location. The scallops, prawns, and pork were very good ...  more »

  • Onde of the best beach restaurants in Porto. Maybe the best. Probably the best. The only thing that bothers me is the menu. The food is not all that great and you don't have many options. Still. Is the best place to relax. To spend quality time. To just be. It's fantastic.
  • If you're looking for a place that will take your breathe away, this is the restaurant to visit. As the ocean waves hitting the shore right in front of your table will catch your attention you won't probably have the time to notice that the food is excellent too. Not exactly low cost, especially by local standards, but I would not miss it
  • Not what it use to be... The kids serving don't have a clue and the management is non existent... Luckily the sea, sun etc are not managed by them or they would screw it up!
  • Food and service is great upstairs, but a little hit and miss downstairs. Some waiting staff seem to have a little bit of an attitude. Views and building are spectacular though. Well worth a visit, especially for the sunset.
  • Not the hottest Beach but it offers very nice views and walk
