Torel Palace Porto


Located in the heart of the city, Torel Palace Porto is a 19th century palace that’s been transformed into a luxury boutique hotel. One of the finest examples of Porto’s romantic architecture, this property boasts ornate interiors, themed according to Portuguese literary stars. With an outdoor pool, petit spa, superb restaurant and exquisite service, it offers a delightful stay in Portugal’s second city.

Each named after a Portuguese writer or poet, the 24 rooms and suites are quirky, luxurious and fun, with large windows ensuring plenty of natural light. Historical details such as high, stuccoed ceilings and antique furnishings blend with high-end contemporary comforts including Nespresso machines and flatscreen TVs with satellite channels.

Inspired by one of José Saramago’s most famous books, Essay on Blindness, Restaurante Blind offers a truly unique dining experience. Showcasing the flavours of Portugal, diners are invited to embark on a sensory journey, where the menu is never revealed. The concept is continued in the cocktails served in the Blind Bar.

After a day’s sightseeing, refresh with a dip in the outdoor pool and treat yourself to a massage in the spa.
