Since its opening 6 months ago, the GRAN CRUZ HOUSE and its restaurant CASARIO, located in the more typical neighborhood of Porto, World Heritage of UNESCO, received the best reviews of Forbes France, The Telegraph, Conde Nast Traveler, The Hotel Guru, and is, according to TripAdvisor, “the best value for money in Porto”.


Ideally located along the Douro River, more precisely in Praça da Ribeira, the historical and medieval heart of Porto, GRAN CRUZ HOUSE was built from a 19th century building, entirely renovated for the occasion.

The hotel embraces everything PORTO CRUZ cherishes: authenticity, good taste / modernity / uniqueness and sweetness of life. The hotel offers seven comfy rooms with a typical Portuguese design. Each of them are inspired by the brand’s visual identity and colours and are decorated with “The Woman in Black”, PORTO CRUZ’s icon. Moreover, the convivial and superior hospitality delivered enables travelers to enjoy an outstanding stay.

Benefiting from an indoor and an outdoor space, the hotel also hosts a gourmet restaurant, the Casario. Its seasonal menu, prepared by renowned chefs Miguel Castro Silva and José Guedes, is a tribute to the Portuguese cuisine. In a warm atmosphere, guests will enjoy fine traditional Portuguese meals to taste with their favourite PORTO CRUZ.

Just in front of the ESPAÇO PORTO CRUZ, the intimate, colourful and relaxing atmosphere of GRAN CRUZ HOUSE is awaiting you…
