Formerly a 19th century Palace, the Pousada Porto is located upriver from Oporto, on the banks of the Douro River

Built in the mid 19th century, the Hotel Porto is one of the most remarkable examples of Portuguese Baroque architecture. The facade of this Hotel Palacio Do Freixo was declared a National Monument in 1910. Its interior has been beautifully restored, maintaining many original features of the Palace including frescos on the ceilings of some of the public rooms. It also has a chapel.

With magnificent views over the Douro River and due to its close proximity to the centre of Porto, this Pousada is perfectly located to explore Portugal’s second largest city. After a busy day sightseeing guests can relax in the hotel’s luxurious spa, health club or in the outdoor swimming pool which overlooks the Douro River.

wir durften 3 Nächte in dieser traumhaften Poussada do Freixo verbringen. Schon an Empfang wurden wir wie könige behandelt und ein Angestellter führte uns durch das gesamte toll restaurierte Anwesen. Unser Zimmer war sehr geräumig und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Wir hatten einen tollen Ausblick sowohl auf das Schloss als auch auf den Fluss und GArtenanlage. Der Pool bietet einen phantastischen Ausblick auf den Fluss. Das Personal ist überall überaus zuvorkommend und liest den Gästen jeden Wunsch von den Lippen ab, bevor sie ihn überhaupt ausgesprochen haben. WIr wurden nicht nur beim Frühstück verwöhnt sondern durften auch abends ein dem Preis und de Lokalität entsprechendes Dinner genießen. Wir waren mit allem nicht nur zufrieden- wir waren vom Personal, der Lokalität und von Porto begeistert. Wir werden wiederkommen.

Nous avons séjourné à la Pousada de Porto en avril 2014. Nous sommes très satisfaits de cet hôtel luxueux aux splendides parties communes . La réception nous a offert dès l'arrivée un verre de porto et par la suite, le personnel s'est toujours montré attentif et prévenant. Notre chambre avait vue sur le Douro. Le restaurant est également remarquable. On y trouve même du pain sans gluten La navette vous conduit en ville en 10 minutes et permet de se libérer des soucis de parking. Bref, un excellent rapport qualité prix. Encore un petit effort pour parler français et tout sera parfait !

We stayed in March at the Pousada de Freixo after looking at the web site. The Freixo met all our expectations and some. The staff was extremely helpful and made us feel like we were at home. Though a bit out of town, it was still convenient and the views and ambiance well worth it. We will stay again upon our return to Porto.
