About Us

Located right in the heart of the historic area of the city of Oporto, one of the UNESCO Heritage Sites, the Ribeira Douro Hotel was created from buildings built more than 150 years ago. 

We dedicate this dream to those who want the best experience of the city of Porto, right at the first step. Step outside and immediately immerse yourself in the historic Ribeira, its narrow streets full of life, and its ancient civil and religious architecture. You are at the riverside. Just a few meters ahead is the Douro River. Take a cruise along the stunning riverbanks of Oporto and Vila Nova de Gaia on a traditional Rabelo boat. Or go to the Dom Luis bridge, a metal arch built in 1886, take the lower-deck level and cross to Vila Nova de Gaia to visit the Port Wine cellars. 

Don't like choppy waters? Don't worry. Walk a few meters and hop-on the historic tram and take a trip along the riverbank. Feel yourself going back in time, let yourself be carried away by the imagination.

Whatever the option you’ll take, you can take a break at any time to taste the rich and diverse Portuguese gastronomy, one of the most outstanding representatives of Mediterranean gastronomy.

From this hotel in Porto you can take a cruise on the Douro River that departs from the bank near the hotel, take the historic streetcar to Foz do Douro or visit one of the Port Wine cellars.

Once here, take the opportunity to visit the main historical monuments and museums of the Invicta City, such as Palácio da Bolsa; Igreja de São Francisco; Sé Catedral; Torre dos Clérigos; Fundação de Serralves; Livraria Lello, Casa da Música, Café Majestic, Galerias de Arte de Miguel Bombarda.

Do not miss the opportunity to become a Portuense and get lost in our streets - from Santa Catarina to Rua das Flores, Avenida dos Aliados to Clérigos, where you will find traditional and alternative design stores, contemporary galleries, bars, and bohemian restaurants with the stamp of Porto's artistic and cultural heritage.

Ribeira Douro Hotel is 25 minutes from Porto International Airport.
