The Porto River Apartments sit on the northern bank of the Douro River, in the Bairro da Ribeira, our favourite district of Porto.
The skyline is dominated by the stone architecture of the riverside warehouses which hark back to Porto’s industrial past when the city relied heavily on the Douro to export to the wider world. Away from the busy streets of central Porto, this timeless architecture now houses some of the city’s most popular riverside restaurants, hotels and apartments.
The Porto River Apartments have sixteen rooms in all; snug studios, spacious suites, and one and two bedroom apartments. The latter offer the best of both worlds; the feel of a private apartment with the convenience of a B&B. There’s a living room, bathroom, a well-equipped kitchenette, A/C and wi-fi.
The apartments are the perfect base from which to explore the city on foot and Porto’s most famous landmark, the Ponte Luis I bridge, is just a stone’s throw away as is Douro’s southern bank and the historic port warehouses of Vila Nova de Gaia.
