PortoBay Teatro Hotel 

A chic addition to Porto’s historic centre

With theatrical flourishes, a fabulous restaurant and a fantastic location, PortoBay Teatro is very much part of the city's boutique scene.

This city hotel focuses on the smaller details such as personal service, delicious breakfasts and room service until late. Walking in is like stepping into a Hollywood star’s dressing room; ambient lighting, costumes hanging in glass cabinets, caramel latte colour schemes and cocoon-style bedrooms. The Italian restaurant is a great lunch or dinner hangout and the cocktail bar is a sweet spot to return to for a glass of limoncello after wandering the little streets of Porto.

Why we love PortoBay Teatro Hotel

  • It’s an elegant hotel of just 75 rooms

  • The Italian restaurant fans the flames with a wood-fire pizza oven and a menu of risottos and ravioli

  • A ten-minute stroll to the Ribeira neighbourhood and the River Douro

  • A short walk away is the world's most beautiful bookshop, Livraria Lello - check out the Gothic architecture, the staircase and the books.
