Casa do Conto is a spectacularly renovated 19th-century bourgeois home, typical of the style of Porto. Koolhaas’ Casa da Musica is just a few minutes walk. In a similar style, the Tipografia was added in March 2019. The buildings are located 350 metres from each other in the up-and-coming Cedofeita area. Two metro stops are located within 2 minutes’ walk.
The cutting-edge designed guest rooms are distributed between the Casa do Conto (6 suites) and the Tipografia (10 suites). They feature concrete walls and ceilings and are mixed with vintage furniture. Room facilities include air conditioning, a flat-screen TV, a Nespresso machine, kettle, and a minibar. Bathrooms come with a shower, a hair-dryer, high-quality towels, slippers and bathrobes. Some rooms have balconies and/or kitchenettes. The room’s concrete ceilings have texts engraved by different authors, related to the city and its architecture.
In the Casa do Conto you will find a lounge with fireplace, a breakfast area and a garden with fruit trees. The Tipografia has a large ground floor lounge area, a courtyard and back garden. Adjacent is a cultural café.
