A characterful city stay in Porto’s UNESCO-listed historic centre with chic design and original architecture - includes breakfast and a welcome drink

Porto’s colourful townhouses and quaintly dilapidated squares provide an atmospheric backdrop to this polished boutique hotel in the heart of the city. Hotel Carrís Porto Ribeira is just moments from the Douro River on a pretty corner of Ribeira Square, with views of the river and one the city’s famous metal arch bridges. From your central base in the UNESCO-listed city centre you can embark on plenty of sightseeing, seeking out restaurants serving new-wave Portuguese cuisine, retro cafes and the Port cellars of Gaia.

The hotel is a chic stay with plenty of character; it has recently benefitted from a sympathetic refurbishmen, retaining its chunky stone walls and wrought-iron accents, adding modern touches like contemporary art installations and new bathrooms. The hotel has two places to dine: a smart restaurant serving new takes on Portuguese classics, and a buzzy tapas bar with a rustic feel. For all this, Hotel Carrís Porto Ribeira has earned a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Hotel Carrís Porto Ribeira’s excellent location means its easy to explore. Once you’ve taken a walk along the river, head into the city’s labyrinthine streets to seek out its many lookouts. From up high the tumbledown buildings and baroque churches unfurl like a postcard, providing the perfect opportunity for photographs. The ocean is within tantalising reach, too: hop aboard the 1 tram to reach Foz do Douro in minutes.
