The guesthouse is conveniently located close to the city center and is easy to find. As soon as we checked in, the manager spent half an hour with us, provided coffee and home made pastry, and went over a map of the city highlighting all the sights and proposing an itinerary to see them all. He also provided advice on... More

From the greeting when you arrive, to the service when you ask questions, to the thoughtful decoration - Cosme has it all. The Team at Cosme were fantastic and made you feel a friend not a guest. Not central but close enough to be walkable / or Metro but in a quiet area. Stay for the staff - they're worth... More

Cosme is a really comfortable and convenient place to stay. The styling of the rooms shows great flair and thoughtful attention to detail. The City Centre, the Ribeira district and the Metro are all within relatively easy walking distance. However, what really singles out this remarkable accommodation is the overwhelming kindness and consideration of everybody who works there. Right from... More

This beautifully designed and artistic hotel, in my opinion, offers all you need for a relaxing and reinvigorating stay in the interesting city of Porto. It is centrally located with many restaurants and sights to see nearby, whilst being a stones throw away from the tube station with a connection to the airport. You will be greeted by friendly and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The concept of our house is based on three main characteristics offered to our guests: Port Wine tasting, permanent exhibitions of Portuguese artists,and a little library with some books related to the Portuguese culture. The house is located in an old part of the town, where the rich bourgeoisie was installed in the beginning of the 20th century. It's 10 minutes away from the City Centre and 5 minutes from the subway station, on foot. It's got a car park nearby. ... more   less
