Post Covid-19 safety measures

In the Era Covid-19, we are back, with complete safety!

After a period where we were forced to closed doors, the Grande Hotel do Porto reopens its doors to welcome guests once more.

In order to adapt ourselves to these new times, we have adopted several procedures and measures to ensure the necessary precautions to avoid the spreading of the Covid-19.

An internal protocol was made with all actions necessary, the hotel staff received proper training, we have implemented new routines and changed some procedures, furniture and decoration elements in order to allow a safer environment within the hotel without losing track of our mission which is to provide an authentic travelling experience to those who visit us.
