Your 5-star boutique hotel in the heart of Porto

True luxury has a name: Torel Palace Porto.

Our elegant palace, in the heart of Porto, is housed in a stunning mansion, which we have transformed into a charming five-star hotel, with 24 rooms and suites, a restaurant, a spa and a swimming pool.

Dating back to 1861, Torel Palace Porto was carefully renovated. However, it kept to the maximum its original characteristics of the Campos Navarro mansion.

The palace - typical of the bourgeoisie at the time - is one of the most illustrious examples of the period of romantic architecture in Porto. The incredible architectural highlight is the exceptionally impressive skylight.

Our Restaurant and Bar Blind serves, in its Gastrobar menu, the delights of renowned Chef Vitor Matos.

Outside, you will find our swimming pool which, together with one of our exclusive cocktails, offers the relaxing end of the day you deserve, after walking through the streets of our wonderful city.

In our Calla Wellness Suite, you can enjoy massages and treatments with exclusive products, from the brands Phty's and Oliófora.


Honor the most Iconic Portuguese Writers and Poets

Torel Palace Porto, opened in February 2020, is the latest project in the Torel Boutiques collection.

At Torel Palace Porto, we pay homage to Portuguese writers and poets, including Eça de Queiroz, Florbela Espanca and, of course, Fernando Pessoa.

Another name with special emphasis on his exceptional work, Nobel Prize winner José Saramago, is celebrated in our bar and restaurant Blind. The name refers to one of his most famous books - Essay Sobre A Cegueira - and we honor this idea by celebrating the five senses when we try our Blind Emotions menu.

Our Design Concept

The interior design was handed over to Isabel Sá Nogueira, who has already collaborated in other hotels of the group, including the design of the Torel Palace Lisboa and the common areas of the Torel Avantgarde.

At Torel Palace Porto, the basic issue was to reconcile the characteristics of the building and its classic style with the comfort and convenience of contemporary decor.

The common spaces were designed in order to respect the history and antiquity of the palace, creating a current space.

In this sense, the architectural structure was maintained, with the intervention being essentially at the level of furniture, colors and lighting.

The intention was to enhance the beauty of the palace and restore its splendor, as can be seen in the lobby , the staircase or the skylight, which is, without a doubt, the hotel's ex-libris.

In the decoration of the rooms, the portraits, painted by Jorge Curval, reveal the identity of the authors, who give the name to each room.

However, the most surprising element, which breaks down with everything else, are giant cubes, entirely covered with mirrors, planted in the center of some of the rooms. They look like an artistic installation, causing a game of reflected images, which can confuse the less attentive, but they have a very precise function: they are the bathrooms. Its interiors are covered in marble of a wide variety of types and colors.
