Doubles from €90 room-only
Opened September 2017
As the name suggests, this new boutique hotel (pictured above) celebrates avant-garde artists and pioneers in the fields of music, literature, design, fashion and architecture. Each room takes its inspiration from a different visionary: the Frida Kahlo room has vibrant hues and tropical prints; Andy Warhol has a splash of pop art colour. It may sound gimmicky, but it’s all done with flair and good taste, and the views from the pool terrace over rooftops and the Douro river are some of the best in the city. The in-house Digby restaurant offers contemporary dishes with the flavours of Portuguese gastronomy.
