Torel Avantgarde is a five-star boutique hotel in Porto that opened in September 2017, and already won a World Luxury Hotel Award in 2018. Like Avantgarde artists, we wanted to create something completely new. Our vision was to establish a place where art takes centre stage in every way. The result is Torel Avantgarde, a space to live art, to touch art, and to feel the heart and passion of the artist in the various spaces : in the 47 individually designed rooms, at the reception, in the flower room, at the Digby restaurant, at the Balsamea spa and, of course, in all our rooms. Torel Avantgarde is located in the heart of Porto, in the area of Restauraçao – just beside the Instituto de Vinho Verde and close to important parts of the city: 200m from the Palacio de Cristal, 500m from the Clerigos Tower, 750m to the Rua das Flores, 800m to the Avenida Aliados - and in the heart of the art district of Porto, only 5 minutes from Rua Miguel Bombarda.

There is not a single detail in our 3 day stay, that wasn’t pure perfection! This really is the best hotel we stayed at (we do about 20 trips per year). Our only ask of the owners was to open more hotels in European locations so we can always and only stay at Torel wherever we

We tried to stay at this trendy and very fancy hotel. When we showed up in the lobby they said we did not have a reservation since it was booked for the month before. They didn't even mention that we already paid for the two nights. We had to go to an other hotel and pay for the

Dear Ms. Lisa Reindorf greetings from Porto. Following your review, we would like to explain you again what happened with your reservation. On January 30 we receive a booking reservation under the name of Mrs. Lisa Reindorf through our website. The dates booked were from 3rd to 5th of February. Afterwards, our Reservation Department sent an official Booking Confirmation, where was confirmed once again the booking dates. Also we attached the invoice, where appears the dates of the booking. On the booking date, February 3rd we were waiting for welcome you in our hotel, but unfortunately you didn’t showed-up. Therefore, your reservation was a “No-Show”. When you arrived to the hotel one moth later, Filipa who is one of our managers, tryied to explain you the situation. As you well know we offered you a special rate for staying with us you that you didn´t accept. We are so sorry for all this situation and for the this misunderstanding and hope to be helpful with the explanation. Thank you once again for your understanding and kind regards Francisco

Dear Sirs, The Torel Avantgarde, the first 5 * Hotel decorated EXCLUSIVELY by Artists / Designers and Portuguese products is therefore a tribute to the Portuguese. In order to value and spread the national talent, we have EXCLUSIVELY work with Portuguese designers, artists and craftsmen. So, the rug in the lobby with the illustration of the flag of Portugal was another way of honoring and celebrating our country. But taking into account the different opinions generated by the use of the flag, we removed the carpet and emphasized that our intention was to HONOR and CELEBRATE the portugalism present in our Hotel. We appreciate the opinions that have come to us and invite all to visit our hotel to celebrate the best of Portugal. Best regards
