Torel Avantgarde is a brand-new, five-star boutique hotel in Porto - we just opened in early September 2017. The concept of Avantgarde for our hotel is based on the building, which originates from the Estado-Novo period, i.e. the 1940s. Like avant-garde artists, we wanted to create something completely new. Our vision was to establish a place where art is not only an add-on, but takes centre stage in every way.
The result is Torel Avantgarde, where you can fully immerse yourself into art, absorbing it in all its expressions. It is a space to live art, to touch art, and to feel the heart and passion of the artist.
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.

With a strong connection to the sea and nature, the AZOR Hotel is the starting point to discover the Azores. It opened in May 2016.
Inspired by the surrounding sea and the volcanic nature of the Portuguese Azores Island of São Miguel, Azor Hotel abounds with natural materials that serve to remind guests of the property’s remote location, while remaining starkly cosmopolitan and contemporary in design.
In addition to organizing a range of excursions and experiences that immerse guests in the local lifestyle, the 123-room hotel plays host to a lobby market that offers up cheeses, tapas dishes, and a number of products to take home, as well as a rooftop pool and bar that doubles as a whale-watching spot.
At À Terra restaurant, one can also enjoy delicious homemade dishes fit for sharing. Azor Hotel’s ideal location next to the marina in Ponta Delgada ensures that the treasures of the Azores’ administrative capital are an enticing hop away.
