ABOUT US

THE NAME DOM HENRIQUE

Known for the strong-willed nature of its people – driven by passion and strong convictions – the city is at the very heart of the Portuguese Discoveries. Infante Dom Henrique, The Navigator, was born in Oporto in 1394. Son of king Dom João I, Dom Henrique was the great pioneer of overseas expansion, a unique campaign that would change the concept of the world forever.

IDENTITY AND HISTORY

In March 1973, the original owner, Afonso Pinto de Magalhães, opened the Dom Henrique Hotel Downtown. One of the rare independently owned hotels in the city, it is a reference of 20th century hotel architecture and a landmark in the Historical Centre of Oporto with its unique and distinctive silhouette. As the first large high-rise construction made with reinforced concrete, the building bears the signature of the illustrious architects Pádua Ramos and Carlos Loureiro. It is an exemplary work of art that, despite its 18 floors, blends into the urban landscape thanks to the elegance of its structure. Owned by the same family since the beginning, it has a differentiated, autonomous management and the assurance of a strong, emotional and constantly valued sense of identity. In this context, it undertook several renovations over time with the goal to always provide a superior quality service.

 

A recent substantial refurbishing reinforced our main criteria and values: to offer comfort and safety in elegantly designed spaces and to provide an exemplary service in the efficiency and the attention we dedicate to each client.

 

In a Hotel with history, a continual sense of novelty…
