  • Pousada of Porto – Hotel Palacio do Freixo

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

    Description

    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.

    This luxurious Hotel Porto has 87 rooms, including 11 suites. Many of the rooms have stunning views over the Douro River. All rooms have en-suite bathroom, heating/air conditioning, cable television, mini bar, hairdryer, safe, telephone and free internet access.

    The Pousada’s location, facilities, views and excellent restaurant make it an ideal venue for weddings, conferences and other major events.

    Testimonials

    4 testimonials for Pousada of Porto – Hotel Palacio do Freixo

    1. The location and activities at the pousada and in Porto were perfect. We had a wonderful time bringing the in the New Year with your wonderful arrangements and fabulous dinner that last all evening. This memory will live in our hearts for a long time to come. Porto was easy to explore with suggestions from our hosts. Thank you so much. Scarlett Rehrig USA

    2. 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.

    3. 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 !
