After welcoming us with a glass of Port wine, our host proudly showed us the accommodation. The six studios, set in a classy renovated historic building in the area of Bolhão is a pure gem. Since Porto is a relatively small city, everything is within walking distance. In 20 minutes, you will be able to reach Combi Coffee for your morning cappuccino, A Sandeira do Porto for lunch and Puro 4050 for dinner.

We stayed three nights in the Garden Studio and it felt as comfortable as being home. Our two favorite memories of the time spent in the hotel are the room-delivered breakfast we used to enjoy in the cozy kitchenette and the relaxing moments in the foamy bathtub every late afternoon, after having walked all day, with a view over the garden. The room has plenty of light, the interior is modernly designed but historical details are kept intact.
From April there will be an extra space in the basement, which will be directly connected to the garden and it will work as a common dining area where guests will be able to enjoy their breakfast or a glass of Port wine. For now, breakfast is served in your room between 9 and 11 AM, according to your choice. The wooden box contains the typical Portuguese ‘croissant’, bread, honey, jam, some cheese/ham and juices. With enough pastelerias in the neighborhood, it is all you need after waking up.
