Interview By:

— Please tell us a bit about how the idea of opening a boutique hotel in Porto started.

Ema: “My boyfriend and I love antiques which eventually lead to the idea to restore this building and turn it into a boutique hotel. The building is 100 years old and has not been altered structurally so it has very spacious rooms, each including a dressing and a living room, and some of them featuring a balcony as well.

We also have a beautiful garden and our restaurant, which at lunchtime lets our guests experience the lively ambience of the city and in the late afternoon and evening is perfect enjoy quiet and relaxing moments.”
