After a long day of Port wine tasting, we finally checked into Hotel Infante Sagres, which couldn’t have given us a better ending to our day. We didn’t have to worry about the usual map confusion and spending half an hour looking for the hotel, because it was just there, right in the middle of the center in the best location of Porto city – perfect.
When checking in at the reception, we were offered a glass of Port, which was very fancy, but by then we had probably had over 10 glasses of Port that day already. The luxury boutique hotel looked amazing inside, with high ceilings, crystal chandeliers, fire places and hang out lounges, and even a couch in the elevator. With a museum, two terraces, a spa, a bar and beautiful restaurant which made you feel like a royalty when having your breakfast in the morning – you can easily understand why it’s part of the “Small Luxury Hotels of the World” collection.
The hotel is a very elegant and traditional 5-star hotel, and we really appreciated the small details like the magazines and chocolates that were handed out every afternoon, and being surrounded by some great cafes, bars and restaurants – we never had to walk very far. If you feel like splurging out on your trip to Porto, this is definitely the place to do it, and you can’t get a more central location than this!
