Established in 2018, Casa do Cativo is set on a historic building, dating from 1851. It is located in the heart of the city of Porto, just a few minutes away from São Bento train station, Sé Catedral and the iconic Teatro Nacional de São João.
It has been restored, respecting the original architecture and features of the building. From the original blue and white tiles on the façade to the imposing wooden staircase that is the heart of the house, we want to take you back in time and feel Casa do Cativo.
Its 8 rooms have a classic decoration, which combines details from the “old days” with the comforts of today. In addition to the superb views over the historic area of Porto, or the tranquility of the garden, Casa do Cativo is a hidden oasis in the middle of the city, where you will be able to enjoy the busy streets of Porto, its cafés “wine bars” and of all the historic churches and museums scattered throughout the city.
During the summer, you can also take a dip in the pool (seasonal opening from May to September, including) and during the cooler months, take advantage of the comforting library or the Piano room to read a book or simply enjoy a good wine.
At Casa do Cativo we prepare daily a traditional Portuguese breakfast, included on all reservations. If you have any Allergies or Food restrictions, please mention them on the reservation or upon arrival. We will take them in consideration and adapt our breakfast to you.
We invite you to discover Casa do Cativo!
