Why so chic?
Why travel experts chose this hotel
Only when you book with Chic
At only six bedrooms, the Rosa Et Al Townhouse is about as small as boutique accommodation gets. Design here is everything: it’s a perfectly renovated early 20th-century Porto building and every detail has been carefully thought through. From its chic, subtly retro aesthetic, to its winding staircase; we're sure you'll be wishing you lived somewhere just like it.
It's not all décor and style either; the lovely staff will happily go out of their way for you and you're in a fun, arty part of town. Due to both this Chic Retreat's size and popularity we would definitely recommend booking a while in advance.
You're unlikely to go hungry at the Rosa Et Al Townhouse: a good breakfast is served every day, as is afternoon tea and dinner (on request).
What we loved...
I fell in love with the faded charm of Porto and I'm sure that a big part of this was because of our stay Rosa Et Al Townhouse. Set up in the eaves, our room was glorious - big windows looking out to the street below, a free-standing bath in the bedroom and a little note and a chocolate on our pillows each night. Heavenly.

Each of the six rooms are spacious and well-equipped. It's worth knowing that the Suite has an open-plan bathroom, with a free-standing bath beneath the eaves and a trunk separating off the loo. Lovely if you don't mind letting go of a little privacy but opt for a Superior or Deluxe Suite if you prefer your bathroom separate.
There are some wonderful in-room spa treatments available including a full range of aromatherapy massages.
You're well-located here too: the Rua do Rosario is a vibrant, arty district in the centre of Porto, and is only a 15/20-minute walk from many of the main sights such as the Torre dos Clérigos and Porto Cathedral.
