Travelers' Choice
Torel Avantgarde is a five-star boutique hotel in Porto that opened in September 2017, and already won 3 prestigious awards: a World Luxury Hotel Award in 2018, a Prix Villégiature | Awards and a Seven Star Award. Like Avantgarde artists, we wanted to create something completely new. Our vision was to establish a place where art takes centre stage in every way. The result is Torel Avantgarde, a space to live art, to touch art, and to feel the heart and passion of the artist in the various spaces : in the 47 individually designed rooms, at the reception, in the flower room, at the Digby restaurant, at the Skinlife Wellness Spa and, of course, in all our rooms. Torel Avantgarde is located in the heart of Porto, in the area of Restauraçao – just beside the Instituto de Vinho Verde and close to important parts of the city: 200m from the Palacio de Cristal, 500m from the Clerigos Tower, 750m to the Rua das Flores, 800m to the Avenida Aliados - and in the heart of the art district of Porto, only 5 minutes from Rua Miguel Bombarda.

Cologne, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany36 contributions22 helpful votes
We stayed here recently for six nights during the pandemic and the staff was very attentive to wearing masks and ensuring safety. Initially we had booked Torel 1884, but our booking was moved here and it worked out incredibly well. Those views are breathtaking and it really makes you feel like you're on a real vacation even though you're in a city. The front desk was especially friendly in a naturally genuine way (they provided some excellent suggestions for wine tasting in Gaia and which tram to take), and the food at the restaurant is delicious. I dream of returning one day and waking up to that view of the Douro. The location is also noteworthy as you can walk to many sights in about 10-15 minutes. I also appreciated that it wasn't smack dab in the middle of the city. It was quiet and peaceful and everything we wanted our vacation to be. Muito obrigada!

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful hotel. The hotel is well located and has a great view over Porto and the river. The rooms are modern and beautifully designed. Especially the breakfast that is currently served on the table and needs to be ordered the night before is exceptional, very good quality and great alternative for the traditional buffet. Everyone was very welcoming and helpful, we can only recommend it and will definitely be back!

The Hotel is very good, with nice views over the Douro River, very attentive staff, and good accommodation. The location is very good as well, close to the "Porto center". We stayed just for a night, and we didn't had the chance to use the pool or gym but the pool has a very good view.
