Opposite to everything that was made then, the luxury of the hotel could be seen in many details of its interior decoration: the French mirrors, the golden florins, the sumptuous marble columns.Along the years of its existence it was the set for many encounters of Porto’s high society. Politicians, writers, spies, war refugees, artist and nobility members have passed through the Hotel along the years.Today, the charm of the past days can still be felt.

The heritage of “Grand Hotel” is still visible in many details like its late Victorian facade and elaborate exterior detailing or many of the interior décor details.With more than a century old, Grande Hotel do Porto is the oldest hotel still functioning in town. Witness of several decades, it reaches nowadays as a charming hotel, where detail makes the difference and where you will find cosy and relax environment to enjoy a good rest.
