Discover the narrow cobbled streets and baroque architecture of Porto from the French-inspired five-star Maison Albar Hotels Le Monumental Palace, your luxe launchpad to this Portuguese coastal city. A location right in Porto's historic heart means you are within walking distance of must-see architectural masterpieces such as the ornate churches of Igreja do Carmo and Igreja dos Clérigos, Câmara Municipal do Porto town hall and the neoclassical Bolsa Palace. For beautiful views of the river and city, take the 10-minute stroll to Luís I Bridge — for contrast, visit at least once during the day and again at sunset.
The luxurious Maison Albar Hotels Le Monumental Palace, part of the renowned Leading Hotels of the World collection, is an architectural wonder in itself. Standing proud since 1930, its exquisite exteriors give way to modern comforts and five-star facilities. From the revered cuisine of Michelin-starred French chef Julien Montbabut at Le Monument to the unique Japanese fusion of internationally-acclaimed Portuguese chef Olivier Da Costa at Yakuza, the hotel's dining owns understated elegance. Meanwhile, Le Spa Nuxe is on hand to pamper weary travellers with signature facial and body treatments, perfectly complemented by a session at the indoor pool, sauna and hammam.
Suite upgrades available: Make yourself at home in five-star style when you upgrade to a Suite Audacieuse or city-view Suite Insensée, offering spacious living areas, a balcony or terrace, and relaxing bathtub in your marble ensuite.
