The Rebello



Spectacular Hotel in Central Porto

It would be hard to beat the spectacular location of this beautiful boutique hotel, on the banks of the Douro with views across to the historic centre of Porto. Large airy spaces, quality finishes throughout, a spa, rooftop bar and two restaurants complete this ideal city break hotel in Porto.

The Location

On a corner of the Douro, with sail boats passing the front of the hotel, there are views to the landmark Dom Luís I Bridge and Porto’s colourful old town directly across the river. A few minutes walk takes you to the vibrant riverside cafes and bars of the Vila Nova de Gaia riverfront as well as fascinating port houses and museums. A little further and you can cross the bridge and wander the cobbled (and steep) streets of the city’s old town – fast becoming a foodie heaven.

Come out of the hotel and turn left and you can follow the river around to the marina and nature reserve beyond. A very different vibe, but just as lovely.

Jump in a taxi from the airport and it’s about 25 minutes to The Rebello. Porto is a superb jumping off point for exploring the Douro and the coastal resorts of Northern Portugal.

  • Location, location, location! The Rebello is on a quiet riverside spot directly across the river from Porto’s old town with views to the bridges and colourful buildings which the city is famous for.
  • Every space in the hotel has been approached with an eye to detail and are contemporary and stylish.
  • The rooftop bar is a glorious spot to take in these views, with superb cocktails and a nice food menu. If you need more choice there are other restaurants downstairs in the converted pots and pans factory
  • The hotel spa is an oasis of calm, with great spa pool, sauna and gym. Perfect way to unwind after a day exploring the city
  • The food in Porto is rapidly giving it a reputation for being a gourmet city break destination! Seafood, traditional Portuguese, world cuisine, it’s all here and of high quality. Breakfast at The Rebello is a treat too!
  • The rooms at The Rebello also give you the choice to go self catering too with their small kitchens
  • You can’t visit Porto without visiting one of the port houses, even if you don’t drink. The history of this industry and how it adapted to wars, blights and fashion is fascinating. If you do drink try a white port and tonic – delicious
  • Being on the river means there are all sorts of water based activities on hand. From short cruises to longer trip up the Douro, sailing boats to sunset gin palace cruises – take your pick
  • The simplicity of a few days staying at The Rebello makes it one of our favourite city centre hotels ever. So much of Porto is within walking distance, but the hotel also offers a sanctuary away from the bustling historic quarters
  • 103 bedrooms of various sizes and formats, from studios to three bedroom apartment. They vary is style too – some with balconies, some with high ceilings, brick walls and features form the hotel’s industrial past
  • Rooftop bar and restaurant, with larger restaurant – Pot and Pan – on site too
  • Spa with plunge pool, sauna and gym. Treatments also available from an extensive list of options
  • A wonderful team who are happy to help organise everything from taxis to bikes to resturants and suggested walking routes. They are a young and professional team who help elevate this to a top notch hotel

The Rebello is managed by Bomporto Hotels, a company set up by Peter Lowe and Christopher Eddis in 2015, who fell in love with Portugal and created Bomporto Hotels, to manage its assets. The Lumiares was the first hotel to open in 2017, followed by The Vintage and now The Rebello. Bomporto Hotels was created as the opposite of a global corporate hotel chain with lovely, friendly boutique hotels in the best locations in Portugal – but, of course, it’s about so much more than that. Great personal service without being stuffy. Fabulous rooms that really make you feel at home. Delicious local and international food but not pretentious. And simply beautiful old buildings that have been brought firmly into the 21st century with style and charm without losing sight of their heritage.
