Renowned for its fantastic wine and charming river, Porto is reaping the benefits of being named Europe’s Best Destination in 2012, 2014 and 2017. Known as Cidade Invicta — the undefeated city — it’s from this historic place that the entire country took its name around 2,000 years ago.

Now firmly in the global spotlight, a growing number of visitors are flocking to the city, where they’ll find Armazém Luxury Housing, a guesthouse with nine rooms and three apartments, each stylish and unique. These are housed across two main buildings, one in São Domingos Square and the other on Flores Street, a stone’s throw from a wealth of restaurants and shops.

Armazém is surrounded by great architectural icons such as Clérigos Tower, Misericórdia Church, São Bento Station and Oporto’s Sé Cathedral. Guests can also easily visit the city’s downtown area, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1996, plus it’s only a five-minute walk from the Douro River.

The guesthouse has a 24-hour reception, a bar and a lounge where guests can enjoy the finest Portuguese drinks. It also has a terrace with stunning views of key monuments. Breakfast is served every morning and made from fresh, local ingredients. Guests can take freshly packed picnics made by hotel staff with them when they want to explore the city.

Armazém is housed in a former 19th-century iron warehouse. Contrasted with luxurious, modern fixtures and fittings, the rugged stone walls from the original building have been preserved to enhance a sense of the property’s history and heritage.

Guests are made to feel like they’re staying in a true home from home at Armazém, with staff constantly striving to create an unforgettable experience. The team is happy to organise exclusive packages and events for visitors wanting to celebrate special occasions.

For guests keen to stay in shape, there’s a yoga studio that offers group sessions, or if they prefer, one-on-one classes.
