Porto at your feet…
The year of 2013 was heavily marked by the growth and expansion of Shiadu, this time towards the north of Portugal. Porto was the city chosen to receive the fifth unit of the Shiadu accommodation: the Casa dos Lóios Boutique Guesthouse by Shiadu.
In Largo dos Lóios was born the site to implement the Shiadu standards: a service of comfort and refinement, with a committed and profoundly dedicated service to each client.
In a house constructed in the sixteenth and seventeenth century, the 12 single, double, and family
rooms were installed with a comforting private patio, ideal to relax in at the end of a long day of outing and discoveries.
Once the house of the Ferraz Mello family, renowned in the textile industry, the so-called “Casa de Santo Elói” since early on differentiated itself from the constructive typologies and morphologies developed at the time by the Board of Public Works. Lower than the standard building, the architectural misalignment and details of its windows and balconies was inventoried and classified by the Museum Conservation Institution (Instituto dos Museus e da Conservação), but it is the interior of the house that delights even more.
The two ceilings in wood where the deluxe rooms are currently at, guarantee to dazzle those who stay overnight, and were once part of the music room where the family’s children used to have singing and instrument lessons. Executed in the second half of the nineteenth century and decorated in the manner of that same century, both ceilings were safeguarded in the course of restoration work, as all the architectural details guarantee a unique stay to all those who visit us.
Located in the historic center of Porto, named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1996, Casa dos Lóios Boutique Guesthouse by Shiadu guarantees an ideal geographical location to those who intend on familiarizing themselves with the city’s attraction: the São Bento railway station, the Torre dos Clérigos (bell tower in Clérigos Church), the Palácio das Cardosas, the Rua das Flores and even the Dom Luís Bridge are within a relaxing walk, accompanied by lovely views.
Moreover, every morning you can start the day with a delicious, homemade breakfast in the quiet inner courtyard. A small luxury in the historic center of Porto… follow your instinct, we wait for you!
