Porto has a very special personality and, like the most special people, it can make you fall in love with it very easily and for many different reasons. This city is almost spoiled by how much love it gets from everyone who knows it but it never refuses to return the feeling in even larger amounts. Porto is old and new, lively and quiet. It is full of contrasts and tales of battles, joy and misery. If there is a city that could summarise the feeling you get when you have the pleasure to meet Portugal, that’s Porto. Because Porto is a kind, wrinkled fisherman with callused hands and it is a hyperactive child who only stops when they’re sleeping. It is a fierce woman who never lets anyone tell her what to do or think or say and never will. Porto is its loud people, its tiled buildings and its insultingly good food. It is a city that you should see before you can’t see anything else and a place where you can let go of any chains that are holding you down and remember who you are.
When you find yourself there, you’ll want every second to be perfect. It doesn’t matter who you brought with you or how much money you have in your wallet: you’ll want to make Porto proud and to stay for longer than you’ve planned. In that case, you’ll need a place where you can do more than just sleep. You’ll need a place where you can open the window and instantly feel part of the city. You’ll need a place where you can dream and get inspired to create something new. And who says you can only have that when you’re willing to spend all of your savings? Porto isn’t greedy and there are plenty of affordable places where you can get this and more. We’ve selected the loveliest and the most inexpensive places where you can stay in the very heart of Porto. All you have to do now is choose.
This house stole a piece of Porto’s personality and spread it all inside its walls. There’s colour, light, quirkiness and tradition. That’s Porto in four words. Oporto Pop Art Suite is set in a beautiful renovated 19th-century building and is located about a 5 minute’s walk from the city centre. This suite features a bedroom, a sitting area with a sofa bed, and a bathroom. It is uniquely decorated, displaying its owners’ flamboyant personalities and their appreciation for art. The high ceilings and huge windows only add to its charm, as well as its cosy, romantic atmosphere. If you’re a fan of Andy Warhol and pop art in general, you’re going to love this place.

You can relax on the lovely terrace whilst siping your morning coffee and then prepare yourself to start exploring Porto right after you open the hotel’s main door. Doesn’t it sound great?

Porto: the city that will conquer your heart
Porto is known as the ‘Invicta’ in Portuguese, meaning that it was never conquered, that it is invincible. History doesn’t agree but sometimes it feels good to deny the details and look at the bigger picture. Porto is indeed invincible in many aspects: in beauty, in architecture, in amazing restaurants, in stories. It always surpasses the highest expectations of anyone who hasn’t yet seen it and it is always able to surprise the ones who have lived there their whole lives. We hope our list of best budget stays in Porto also surprised you and that it is the starting point of your amazing trip to this beautiful city.
