Artist Porto Hotel Now Open

One of Portugal's largest travel companies, Sonae Turismo, recently inaugurated the Artist Porto Hotel & Bistrô in the northern city of Porto.
With its stylish contemporary design in a choice location on Rua da Firmeza just off Rua de Santa Catarina, the hotel has 17 bedrooms spread across two floors and, as its name suggests, a chic restaurant offering set meals and an innovative à la carte menu.
Born of tradition, the Artist Porto Hotel & Bistrô features over 150 pieces of art from the nearby Soares dos Reis art school, some dating back to the 1950s.
The new four-star property also doubles as a training institute for students looking to establish a career in the hotel and catering industry. Other hotel facilities include a living room, bar, business centre, meeting space and a modern auditorium with seating for up to 212 people.
According to Sonae Turismo, the Artist Porto Hotel & Bistrô 'distinguishes itself from other hotels in Porto through its strong connection with the arts, culture and gastronomy, making it ideal for tourists on short breaks from international markets such as France , Spain, Germany, UK and Italy'.
