It is easy to find a good accommodation in an exciting and cosmopolitan city like Porto. The choice depends on the level of comforts and services that you want to enjoy during your holiday.
One of the important factors that need to be taken into consideration is the location of the structure, which needs to be strategic in order to make the most out of your visit.
According to your needs, it is possible to choose a facility near the main cultural attractions or maybe a neighborhood filled with restaurants and shops, or even an area near the main public services to help you moving around the city.
Besides being a city Porto is also an urban district that includes a series of villages located a few kilometres away from the center. If you want to explore its surroundings besides the old center of the Portuguese city, a good option could be staying at one of the several villages nearby and maybe reaching the city center with a rented car or by public transport.
