PortoBay Hotels & Resorts has acquired the Hotel Teatro, which will now be called PortoBay Hotel Teatro and marks the entry of the hotel group into the city of Porto. It is located in the historic centre of the city, on Rua Sá da Bandeira, a few steps from the city’s main attractions including São Bento Station, Clérigos Tower, Porto Cathedral, Avenida dos Aliados, Lello Bookshop, Bolhão Market and the well-known Cais da Ribeira, the Douro riverfront. The hotel was built on the site of the former Baquet Theatre, opened in 1859. Today, the theatrical theme is very much in evidence with the hotel’s unique, refined and bohemian atmosphere. The 74 spacious rooms, divided into 5 categories, offer a contemporary, individual and comfortable feel. The hotel also has a restaurant, bar, small gym and meeting space. The new group hotel will remain in operation while some adjustments are carried out to bring the product more into line with the PortoBay Hotels & Resorts brand.
