Tablet’s Review

The hotels experts at the MICHELIN Guide

Portugal is positively stuffed with extraordinary hotels, but this one stands out by virtue of its sheer uniqueness: a once-abandoned house in a residential section of Porto, after a very thorough five-year renovation at the hands of its French owners, is now a luxurious little boutique hotel in a style that’s decidedly modern yet as warm and welcoming as anything else in town: the poetically named Canto de Luz.

It’s expanded to encompass a variety of units; some suites look into the interior garden, others onto the street outside, and some are rather more than ordinary hotel suites: the Urban Retreat and City Retreat units come with full kitchens, and tucked into the garden is the self-contained Villa Almada, with two bedrooms and its own private pool.

A lavish French-style breakfast has earned Canto de Luz a bit of well-deserved attention, featuring as it does bread and pastries from Padaria Ribeira and an ever-shifting selection of market-fresh items. A proper restaurant for lunch and dinner is beyond the remit of a residential-style hotel on this small scale, but fear not; your hosts are well-connected and quick with a restaurant recommendation. This hotel is implementing enhanced safety and cleaning measures as required by the Tablet Recovery Pledge. Our Customer Service team is happy to provide full details of each step being taken.
