Porto A.S. 1829 Hotel
Charm Hotel. Located in the heart of Oporto, in Largo São Domingos, in the end of the Flores Street, the Porto A.S. 1829 Hotel, is a charming hotel that invites us to experience the fusion between past and present.
As soon as we get it, we’re received with Oporto Wine and the typical Portuguese cakes “pastéis de nata”.
Before being an hotel, the place was a stationary store called Araújo & Sobrinho, one of the most important in Oporto. It still has a corner near to the lobby, where notebooks, pens and Caran D’ ache colour pencils write the stories of a historic building.
The Valentine’s day is around the corner, and the Porto A.S. 1829 Hotel is such a perfect place to surprise the one you love.
Going up to the rooms, there’s a lot of typewriters on the halls from the time when the hotel was a stationary store. It’s like a time travel between the old and the new.
Talking about the rooms, we were lucky to stay on the arch one, the most emblematic room of the hotel. We can see the arch window from the outside of the hotel and it’s way too beautiful. The red sofas, the old telephone and the victorian bathtub make it a beautiful original place. It’s the perfect place to turn off from the world and enjoy a bubble relaxing bath and long talks that lose themselves in time.
Like everything that’s really good, the time flies there. So, the day quickly turns into night, and we’re invited to enjoy a perfect meal at Galeria do Largo.
The Valentine’s day is around the corner, and the Porto A.S. 1829 Hotel is such a perfect place to surprise the one you love. It’s romantic, charming and full of stories. And you can enjoy a bubble bath on the victorian bathtub together followed by a delicious meal in the hotel’s restaurant.
I just loved it there.
Thanks so much for having us Raquel, and for being so kind.
