Your five star luxury Palace.

True luxury has a name: Torel Palace Porto. Our elegant palace in the heart of Porto is housed in a stunning mansion that we transformed into a stunning five-star hotel with 24 rooms and Suites, a restaurant, a Spa and a pool. Dating back to 1861, Torel Palace Porto was carefully renovated to keep as many of its original features as possible of the original historic townhouse, the Palacete Campos Navarro. The Palace - typical of those of the bourgeoisie at the time - is one of the most impressive and distinguished examples of the romantic architecture period in Porto. The amazing architectural highlight is the exceptionally stunning skylight (“Claraboia”).

Our Blind Restaurant and Bar serves with its Gastrobar menu delicacies from renowned Chef Vitor Matos. Outside, you can find our swimming pool which, together with one of our exclusive cocktails, offers the relaxing end of day you deserve after touring the hills of our wonderful city. In our Calla Wellness Suite, you can enjoy massages and treatments with exclusive products of Phytomer.

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

Honoring the most iconic Portuguese writers and poets

In Torel Palace Porto, we honor Portuguese writers and poets, among them Eça de Queiroz, Florbela Espanca and, of course Fernando Pessoa. Another name with special emphasis for his exceptional work, the Nobel prize winner José Saramago, is celebrated in our Blind bar and restaurant. The name refers to one of his most famous novels - Blindness - and we honor this idea through celebrating the five senses when experiences our Gastro Bar menu.

Our Design Concept

The interior project was handed over to Isabel Sá Nogueira, who has already collaborated in other hotels in the group, including the Torel Palace Lisboa project , as well as the common areas of the Torel Avantgarde .
At Torel Palace Porto, the basic question was to reconcile the building's characteristics and its classic style with the comfort and convenience of contemporary decor. The common spaces were designed 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 more at the level of furniture, colors and lighting, with the intention of enhancing the beauty of the palace and restoring its splendor, as can be seen in the lobby, the staircase or the skylight which is undoubtedly 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. But the most surprising element, which breaks with everything else, are giant cubes, entirely lined with mirrors, planted in the center of some of the rooms. They look like an artistic installation, causing a game of reflected images that can confuse the less attentive, but they have a very precise function: they are the bathrooms. Its interiors are covered in marble of different types and colors.
