This stylish 83-room hotel is located on a hillside above the Port lodges of Vila Nova de Gaia with spectacular views of Porto across the Douro river. The hotel is within walking distance of the lively riverfront and across an ornate ironwork bridge from Porto’s historic center. Spacious rooms, all with private furnished terraces, are individually decorated with art and artifacts from various Portuguese wineries. The excellent two-star restaurant features contemporary Portuguese cuisine and wines. Amenities include a large spa, smoking lounge offering cigars and vintage Port by the glass, plus a wine bar, a gym, an indoor pool and a decanter-shaped swimming pool on the sun terrace, which allows access to landscaped gardens.
